I would like to get rid of the frame around the flash image on the web page whenever I mouseover it. How can I do it? (Actually I work with swishMax, but Flash trial did the same).

Thank you for your time.

    Hello Jana,

    I'm not sure what frame you're talking about, but i'm gonna assume that you're refering to the frame internet explorer places around flash content to prevent user interaction with flash until the user clicks on it.

    To avoid this nonsense frame you need to embed your flash content using javascript instead of the traditional <embed> and <object> tags.

    There are several ways to do this, but the one i recommend is using the swfObject, which is a small javascript library to handle all the embedding and loading for you.

    You can get it here, along with plenty of examples:

    Good luck,
