Micromedia Flash Error - Click to activate and use this control

I have a Flash file on one of the pages of my Notes Web Application. On mouse over, I seem to get the msg "click to activate and use this control"

How do I eliminate this

This is a Domino Web Application

Many thanks

Please paste the <object> tag you have included. Normally this occurs when you have included the <object> tag directly in your html file. To resolve this, create a javascript (.js) file and write inside
like given below. Please use your object tag instead on mine.

document.writeln('<OBJECT ID="MyControl" name="MyControl" CLASSID="classid" CODEBASE="/MyControl.CAB#version=1,0,0,0" WIDTH=400 HEIGHT=647 ALIGN="baseline">');
document.writeln('<FONT SIZE="1" FACE="Tahoma"><b>Your browser does not support ActiveX controls or its installation.</b></FONT>');
document.writeln('</OBJECT>');

and then include your javascript file in place of your current <object> tag.

OK, lets see

Here's the current object tag that I have on top of my page as passthru html

<p align=right><object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" id="test" width="600" height="100"
codebase="http://active.macromedia.com/flash2/cabs/swflash.cab#version=3,0,0,0">
<param name="movie" value="test.swf">
<param name="quality" value="high">
<param name="play" value="true">
<param name="loop" value="true">
<param name="bgcolor" value="#000000">
<param name="Wmode" value="transparent"><script LANGUAGE="JavaScript">
</object>

I have removed the above from the top of my page and included the following js call again as passthru html:
<script src='flashprob.js' type='text/javascript'></script>

Then, I created the following on a page and named the page "flashprob.js:


document.writeln('<OBJECT ID="test" name="test.swf" CLASSID="classid" CODEBASE="http://active.macromedia.com/flash2/cabs/swflash.cab#version=3,0,0,0 WIDTH=400 HEIGHT=647 ALIGN="center">');
document.writeln('<FONT SIZE="1" FACE="Tahoma"><b>Your browser does not support ActiveX controls or its installation.</b></FONT>');
document.writeln('</OBJECT>');

I am still having problems, the control is no longer loading correctly.

Any help will be much appreciated

Write this in your .js file

document.writeln('<object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" id="test" width="600" height="100"
codebase="http://active.macromedia.com/flash2/cabs/swflash.cab#version=3,0,0,0">');
document.writeln('<param name="movie" value="test.swf"> ');
document.writeln('<param name="quality" value="high"> ');
document.writeln('<param name="play" value="true"> ');
document.writeln('<param name="loop" value="true"> ');
document.writeln('<param name="bgcolor" value="#000000"> ');
document.writeln('<param name="Wmode" value="transparent">');
document.writeln('</object>');

And try again

The message is now normal behavior for IE, for security.

Hi asvforce,
Thanks for your response

I Tried your above suggestion & still not working.

It will be great if you or any of the experts can test this for me and see if it works

Qwaletee,

Are you saying that the suggestion from asvforce won't work or will it overwrite IE security?

Many thanks

I will check the links but maybe you can pick on the error quicker

I get the following error when I run this as suggested above

"Line 1 - Syntax Error"

I copied the file as is from above, just changed the .swf file name and file id to my one and I included the JS call in both html head content & on the page

I did check the spelling/comments and brackets and they all seem to be in the right place.

Many thanks

Please put all document.writeln statements in one line. I mean one line per document.writeln, dont break the lines by enter key in js like given below. and change you parameters where ever required.
document.writeln('<object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" id="test" width="600" height="100"  codebase="http://active.macromedia.com/flash2/cabs/swflash.cab#version=3,0,0,0">');
document.writeln('<param name="movie" value="test.swf">');
document.writeln('<param name="quality" value="high">');
document.writeln('<param name="play" value="true">');
document.writeln('<param name="loop" value="true">');
document.writeln('<param name="bgcolor" value="#000000">');
document.writeln('<param name="Wmode" value="transparent">');
document.writeln('</object>');

Open in new window
