    SWF Appears Active

    mickeyMadness Level 1
      Hello,

      When I publish a Flash Movie, the movie appears active or clickable on the web page. This causes a problem if there are any active buttons on the page. These don't work until the SWF movie has been clicked.

      I have used Flash since Flash 5 but have only recently got back into it using MX. I can't see any obvious publish setting.

      What causes this? Is it some Browser setting etc?

      Many thanks in advance

      Mike

          (ducking for cover)

          search for "active content" - been the most discussed topic on the web for a few months - hover over
          any active content in IE and read the popup message - search this forum or google for "active
          content" - most here are simply too tired to post the info again :)

            Oh god .. here we go again .. Obviously someone has been living under a rock
            or on a deserted island for a few months :)

            This is due to Microsoft IE changes required to avoid infringing the
            (stupid) EOLAS patent. It applies to all Active-X control that can interact
            with the user.

            If you are viewing a web site, you cannot really do anything to fix it,
            except complain to the web master

            Here is a link to find information on how to fix your website to cope with
            the Active-X active content changes:
