i'm having a print icon in the flash file. when the user clicks on it a javascript function is called where i print a frame.the problem is that in IE 6.0.2800 the flash file inserted in the HTML gets inverted, when we click the print icon. but there is no problem with the print functionality it is the flash file that gets inverted.so pls help me out .

it is working fine in the previous versions of I.E like I.E 5.5 etc.. only in IE 6.0.2800 the problem occurs

the code i use is

getURL("javascript:myfn()") // in the flash

in the html under javascript

function my()
{
     printFrame.focus();
     printFrame.print(); // where printframe is the frame that contains the content to be printed
}

why not just use Flash's inline print functionality?

here is a page that will help you figure this out...

so I am confused why you would not want to use the superior print functionality in Flash...  you have much better control, the quality is better, and from your problems above, it seems it would be much easier to implement...


the tool is there, why not use it?

in reply to rascalpants : i want to print a html frame not the frame in flash.this html frame contains a html page which contains the content to be printed.

arun_3k is it possible to post a link to your file so that I can see what happens?

I am not sure why this question was posted in the Flash Forum then...  what specific Flash problem was there and what was the solution?  

points to stef4... great, but this should not be PAQed in the Flash area...  people will later find this question thinking that they will get a Flash solution...  they will not...

rascalpants, arun_3k thought it was a Flash Problem.

"problem is that in IE 6.0.2800 the flash file inserted in the HTML gets inverted".

Because Flash is embedded in HTML it is a valid question for both topics.
