I would like to include .swf file in a vb 2005 program. I have no idea how and where to include the .swf file. It is inside the picture box? Please guide me, I am new in vb and have no idea how 2 do it. thx

no, its not inserted in picture box. to play swf file you must use shockwaveflash. find this component and add to your toolbox.
right click on your toolbox (or control + T) -> in tab controls find "shockwave flash" -> select it and it will shown on your toolbox control.
use this control on your form.
then add this code to play :

Private Sub Play_Click()
End Sub

Private Sub Pause_Click()
End Sub

Private Sub Rewind_Click()
End Sub

Private Sub LoadMovies_Click()
Call ShockwaveFlash1.LoadMovie(0, "C:\Documents and Settings\Jerry\My Documents\Games Flash\ninja.swf")
End Sub

when i try 2 place the "Shockwave Flash Object" from my toolbox into my design. The system prompt "Failed to import ActiveX control. Please ensure it is properly registered.". What does this mean? Since i am using vb2005, am i entering the wrong forum? vb2005 should b group into vb .NET?

thanx! all the best!

so u already added shockwaveflash on form. next move is write a code. u can see on this thread for second post (#2), there are code for play flash file (.swf)

so all i have to do is copy and paste this code on the form thingie, and change the directory file for my flash movie?

yes. just change the directory of flash file (.swf).

ja, i guess that's where my prob is nothing happens when i play my program? is it supposed to? what am i doing wrong?

Hi Thando...
i'll post the program to you.
i guest you don't load movies before.
see the program, and press load movies button to load flash file and play.
