Working around new IE Browser idiosyncracy
Posted on 2006-07-18
I've noticed on some sites I visit, and now with a site I'm developing for a client, that recent IE updates requiring a user to click on an .swf before being able to access the controls of that .swf (if controls exist).
Is there a way to get around this new idiosyncracy (which must be part of a new security protocol), by simply setting the focus to the layer in which the .swf resides, and if so, how would I do this?
If setting the focus is not the answer, is there another answer other than instructing users that they may have to click on the .swf's twice in order to activate the controls?
The .swfs, by the way, are Adobe (Macromedia) Captivate output files running users through online instruction.
