    Question putting a flash movie on an html page

    I need to embed a flash movie in an html page so that it has no borders around and fits perfectly, like a pop up ad. I've tried to do it in the flash program but it doesn't work. Any input would be greatly appreciated

    You could open a new window with the width and height set to the same size as your flash movie -- and, if you'd like, you can close the opening window...

    You can try this

    <HTML>
    <FRAMESET cols = "*">
    <FRAME src = "yourflashmovie.swf">
    </html>

    but you have to check if there is flash plug-in installed, and unfortunately I don't know how to do this...

    p.s. Please, forgive my English

    I guess it depends on what he wanted then. Since he said "like a pop up ad" i assumed he wanted the window to fit the swf, no the swf to fit the window...

    Smile Thanks

    Well, both will help! I tried window.open('flashfile.swf');
    and it works, but it wont let me add extra parameters such as
    the window name, and the height and width. I am assuming that it is because i t relys on the flash file for the parameters, but I had to change the size of my flash page to fit the html page so that there was no empty space. Ill try the other one too, and that should make the window conform. Thanks again...

    You will need to buy Macromedia Flash to make flash content. I believe there are also other programs that are able to save as .swf, but I used Macromedia Flash MX. Apart from that, it is just like anything else, spend time learning the program, and then design away!

    Yes, it does cost. Unfortunatly, it is a bit pricy at $499. You can get details at http://www.macromedia.com/software/flash/.
