Hi

I am having some real issues getting this swf to do what i want.

The Swf is 1980 by 660 and i need to keep it centered at all times whatever the screen size, especially when screen width is less than the swf width.

I cant work out if it is a css thing or a param/attribute thing.

Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

Many thanks

The code below sets the size parameters to 100% which will keep the swf centred.

Note that anything outside your flash canvas area will also now be displayed so you will have to mask these within Flash
