Hi,

My Swf logo on my home page is appearing really small and i cant for the life of me work out why.

it is 600 x 120 but you can barely see it.

code:

<object id="flashId" classid="clsid27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" width="600" height="120">
<param name="movie" value="logonew.swf" />
<param name="FlashVars" value="name=Dr.Solve"/>
<!--[if !IE]>-->
<object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="logonew.swf" width="600" height="120">
<param name="FlashVars" value="name=Dr.Solve"/>
<!--<![endif]-->
<div>
<h1>Alternative content</h1>
<p><a href="http://www.adobe.com/go/getflashplayer"><img src="http://www.adobe.com/images/shared/download_buttons/get_flash_player.gif" alt="Get Adobe Flash player" /></a></p>
</div>
<!--[if !IE]>-->
</object>
<!--<![endif]-->
</object>

the swf is in the root of my html folder along with the index.html page

Any clues?

THanks

Hi there,

The problem of making that larger is that the area underneath gets pushed down and leaves too much white space.

The SWF was created at 600 x 120 - so in theory the size in the script is correct.

Any more ideas?

hi, your swf is not 600x120, but 550x400, that's the problem.

Hi again,

I added the Parameter, hasn't made any difference.

It has to be the property of the object tag

<object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000"
   codebase="http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=7,0,0,0"
   width="600" height="120" id="Untitled-1" scale="exactfit" >

Try removing the tags embed parameters width="600" height="120"
like this


<embed src="logonew.swf" quality="high" bgcolor="#ffffff"  name="mymovie" align="middle" allowScriptAccess="sameDomain"
   type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="http://www.adobe.com/go/getflashplayer" />

Hello,

have tried making both of those changes, but still not working.

ludofulup: is there a way of changing the size of the swf without creating the movie again?

Thanks for help thus far...hopefully you have some more suggestions?

ImagineIT:
i think you can't change the swf dimensions without editing in flash

what you can do, is to place the swf into a div with specified dimensions and setting it's overflow to hidden:


<html>
<body>

<div style="height: 120px; width: 550px; overflow: hidden">

<object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000" codebase="http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,0,0" width="550" height="400" id="logonew" align="middle">
	<param name="allowScriptAccess" value="sameDomain" />
	<param name="movie" value="logonew.swf" />
	<param name="quality" value="high" />
	<embed src="logonew.swf" quality="high" width="550" height="400" name="logonew" align="middle" allowScriptAccess="sameDomain" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" />
</object>
</div>
Lorem ipsum

</body>
</html>

Hi,

I missed one thing need to add this to the <embed> tag
<embed src="logonew.swf" quality="high" bgcolor="#ffffff" width="600"
   height="120" name="mymovie" align="middle" allowScriptAccess="sameDomain"
   type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="http://www.adobe.com/go/getflashplayer" scale="exactfit" />

This should solve your case.
I tried this on mine.

Thanks !
