I'd like to be able to get that WIDTH and HEIGHT information
for my movie to check to make sure the user is correctly publishing
the .dcr as intended.
What this means and Why this is important.?
If you enter in a smaller size, it will simply crop your
movie. So let's say you put your banner or copyright notice at the
bottom of the movie, it will simply get cropped out and not show
up. To prevent this, you want to check to make sure they are
displaying the full height of the movie as intended.
I've already tried to using this code:
sr = the activeWindow.sourceRect
cr = the activeWindow.rect
mW = cr.width
mH = cr.height
sw = sr.width
sH = sr.height
and it does not work. That is not related to the HTML WIDTH
and HEIGHT of the plugin. :-(
For those who are working on Director 11 (Director 2007),
Please add the HEIGHT and WIDTH to the list of externalparamvalue
You can obtain the "src" and you can obtain the "bgcolor" - i
dont see why the width and height can't be obtained.
I've searched all over the web and the forum... I have yet to
find a solution. Thanks in advance to anybody who can offer a
It only works because the first occurrence of the words
"width" and "height" are those that apply to the Shockwave movie.
You will probably need to use either a more sophisticated parsing
technique, or exploit the fact that you know what the structure and
the contents of your HTML file are going to be.
