Flash auto-width

Good Day All...

What is the best way to control the auto-size of a flash banner within <div></div> tags? What I have is a flash banner in the center content area, and I need it to size to 100% width of the container. The height is also resized. This would be usable, except that it creates spacing above and below when the screen is sized down from its original size. I need the content to move in to fill that spacing.

Thanks!

If you're looking to "stretch" your flash content here is a tip:

exactFit

By default, Flash Player will scale a SWF with a fixed aspect ratio (equivalent of setting scale = "showAll"). If you want the SWF to fit the browser 100% in both directions, you must set the "scale" parameter to "exactFit". Note that this will probably distort your SWF.

Static publishing requires adding two <param> elements as follows:

<object id="flashcontent" classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" width="100%" height="100%">
  <param name="movie" value="/lab/_common/sample-masked.swf" />
  <param name="scale" value="exactFit" />
  <!--[if !IE]>-->
  <object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="/lab/_common/sample-masked.swf" width="100%" height="100%">
  <param name="scale" value="exactFit" />
  <!--<![endif]-->
    <p>Please update your Flash Player</p>
  <!--[if !IE]>-->
  </object>
  <!--<![endif]-->
</object>

What conent will fill up the spacing?

If the flash content will fill up the spacing , I can say this:
I think you should be able to assign the embed or object an width and height of 100% within the div.

So you might need to give them a position:absolute; as well , don't know exactly.

A search for :
full width full height scaling flash
give enough suggestions on how to do this.

Hope that will help.

It's also recommended to embed your Flash SWF using SWFObject rather than the default Adobe / DreamWeaver way of doing things.

SWFObject is free and can be downloaded here: http://code.google.com/p/swfobject/
