I have a Flash movie with a multi-line text field that loads
HTML text. As per the below Macromedia documentation I have swfs as
images inside my HTML text.
I'm trying to find a way to pre-load these swfs - if I do
loadmovie to load the swf, when the html file is loaded will it
need to reload the swf from scratch or will it take my loaded
version? I'd love to show a "loading" message in the text as the
swf was loading but am unsure how to do this now that I have the
swf reference embedded in the html text.
From the Macromedia documentation:
Image tag (<img>
The <img> tag lets you embed external JPEG files, SWF
files, and movie clips inside text fields. The <img> tag has
one required attribute, src, which specifies the path to a JPEG
file, a SWF file, or the linkage identifier of a movie clip symbol.
Thanks - your answer is exactly what I was looking for.
I'm noticing that every swf I load via dynamic HTML is
distorted - is there a way to prevent this? I can set the width and
height of each swf in the HTML, which works ok, but then I run into
a problem when I try and have a component item (like an accordion)
included in the dynamic text field. It works properly, and the
framing is sized correctly, but the guts are still skewed. I
haven't been able to figure out why the swfs are being distorted in
the first place.
