Paul FechtmeisterMozilla displaying Flash correctly
by on Jul 10, 2006 at 6:00:10 pm

Hi there,

I was working on a website and I have a page that is an entire flash movie: http://www.kdp-ne.com/Flash%20Index%20KDP.htm
it displays full size in IE but stays small and won't autoscale in Mozilla firefox.

I've downloade all the correct Flash player 9 plugins and I designed the site in Dreamweaver MX 2004, its in a table that says 100% and that has seemed to work.

Any ideas on how I can get it to display properly in Mozilla?

Thanks for any help you can give.

Cheers

Hi Paul,
try putting the swf into a
container.
I'm sorry, but I just can't seem to post HTML code in here.
Check out http://www.isotrope.net/images/FullPageTest.html
View the source and copy-paste it.
Replace the absolute path of the swf and you're good to go.

Let me know when you have it and I'll remove it.

Cheers,
Michal

BTW, I hope I didn't make a big mistake or break a rule in the CreativeCow usage guidelines by posting the code on my site.
If there's a better way to post code, please let me know.

Thanks for your help.

The code between the curly brackets are CSS Styles. You define them in the Head and then call them in the Body.
They're a great way to position/layout a web page. They're clean and work with most browsers.
You're defining the attributes in the styles and then you're placing your swf in a container.

I've removed the file from my FTP.

Good luck and don't hesitate to ask more questions.

Hey Izotrope,

I didn't see you in the posts for a while so I thought that maybe if I responed here you'd get it in your inbox. Anyway, forms have been kicking my butt lately. I can make them in Flash and Dreamweaver but when I post them and try and call to them.. then I die.

I put them on the server in the cgi-bin and I'm using Network Solutions..they are running Perl 5.006.001 and I'm the account manager but they said that "do-it-yourself" websites don't have any mail scripts and the like. So I've got the bin and been looking all over the net and finding things that say do this and that but nothing works.

Any ideas.

sincerly,
