    full browser flash scalable slideshow

    rahdwh Level 1

      Hi All,


      I'm interested in making a full browser, scalable slideshow.  I have found tutorials on how to create a full-browswer background with a tiled image, and also how to create a full browser background with a movie that runs in the center of the browswer, but does not scale.


      I have seen this done here, for example, at this very beautifl website:  http://mslandarchitects.com/#  This is what we're aiming for.


      I know this can be done with javascript, and I have a version of this done for the iphone/ipad... however, I work for a design firm and we need some easier editable schnazzy effects that flash can offer for those who are visiting our website on any device that is non-iphone/ipad.


      Can anyone reccomend a tutorial that addresses this particular topic?

          Hi There (Again)


          Thanks again for referring me to this site...

          I'm having some issues implementing the swf fit.  When I use the following code, The swf does not fill up the full browswer window when the window is at its maximum size.  I get white space on the left and right that will disaspeer as I shrink the window.  I would like the swf to take up the full window, regardless of the size.  Would anyone mind taking a peak and the code I'm implementing?  See if there is anything glaringly wrong?

            ok so i changed the flash player version from "9.0.0" to my current version "".  I also found a mistake where I list the height at 650 at one point and it is truly 600. Same small problem, however. Just thought I'd write this little update.
