hyperlink on .swf puts margin around embedded flash

apouch used Ask the Experts™
I am using MacOS with FF 3.5.7 and Safari 4.0.4 - not sure how its looks on PC


Adding a hyperlink to this .fla file has put a margin/border around the
embedded flash movie and I cannot figure out how to remove it.

This is what I want it to look like but with the ability to link from the
.swf:  http://www.annepouch.com/WNL/index1.html

I would have thought putting border="0" on the object/embedded tags
would have taken care of it, but no luck  I have also attached the html file:

<object width="900" height="360" border="0" padding="0" margin="0" align="left" overflow="hidden">
<param name="movie" value="wnl3c.swf"/>
<param name="wmode" value="transparent" />
<embed src="wnl3c.swf" width="900" height="360" border="0" padding="0" margin="0" align="left" overflow="hidden">

I have attached the .fla  but this is the action layer code that was added:

my_btn.buttonMode = true;

my_btn.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, myBtnClicked);

function myBtnClicked(e:MouseEvent):void {

navigateToURL(new URLRequest("http://www.wnlsafety.com"));


Thanks for any help!

Have you tried also removing the border from the <embed> tag?

<embed ........ style="border:none;"></embed>


Yes I tried that with no luck.  

The problem is with your flash.

wnl3b.swf flash displays good without white border.

But wnl3c.swf this getting some problem...
attached your file with the problem solved

you can continue using your file by deleting a white border you created while creating the link button.
You selected and created the button but you did not select the border. The border stayed & it was white and so it kept showing.


Thank you so much for you help!
