I have an html page set up to load a flash movie and scale it to the full size of the window. This is working fine, however, I would like to place a cap on how much the movie may be scaled. i.e., i would like to allow the movie to be scaled down to a small browser window, but prevent it from being scaled up beyond its original 1024x768 pixel dimensions.

Is this possible? How might I accomplish this.

Below is my existing HTML script.

<script language="JavaScript">
var jump;
var i;

function displayflash(jump){

document.write('<object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000"');
document.write('codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,29,0" width="1000" height="700" hspace="0" vspace="0">');

I dont think this is possible but what you could do is this;

Create a new HTML file set the top and left margins to 0
Place a Layer onto the page set it at 95% Width, 100% Height
From the left 2.5%
Place the SWF file into the layer and set the Width to 100%

The height will auto set according to the Width.
So what you are left with is a SWF file that resizes to the size of the current browser size.

You don't have to put it into a Layer but to get the best results this is best ;-)

See Zip Attached for an example
I hope this has helped.


document.write('<object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000"');

The :D could be your problem. I don't think a smilie is HTML lol.
