Display Flash .swf in windows form in VB .NET 2005
Posted on 2006-05-22
I'm trying to display a Flash .swf file from a remote website in a windows form (this is for the administration of web banners for our website). I've scoured the web and I can find quite a few how-tos but I think they may be for older versions of .NET. I'm using VB .NET 2005 Express Edition. I can set a reference to the ShockwaveFlashObjects COM component, although it doesn't appear in my Toolbox which is what the tutorials say should happen.
All of the tutorials say I should then drag it onto the form to create an instance of it, but I'm unable to do so from the 'Solution Explorer' window where I can see the reference for it.
I'm guessing that I may have to do this in code, but I don't know how to do this.
Any help would be great.
Thanks a lot,
