I have a website that I am using includes on to make life easier. One issue that has come up is that I am also using a flash header on the top of each page. I would like to put the object and embed tags inside my posthead file with a variable name instead of the movie file name and then set the variable on each page.


This seems like it should be simple but I have been unable to get it to work or find information. Any ideas?

Thanks!

I actually worked around the issue by using a css layer over the top of the flash movie and making that a cf variable instead. Basically what I wanted to do was call a flash movie using a variable name for example instead of:

<object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=7,0,19,0" width="32" height="32" title="test">
	<param name="movie" value="/test.fla" />
	<param name="quality" value="high" />
	<embed src="/test.fla" quality="high" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="32" height="32"></embed>
</object>

I wanted to use #movieName# instead of test.fla.

Yes, I used the attributes tag inside my CustomTags/PostHead: #Attributes.SwfPath# then on the page I called:

<cfmodule template="Test/Test.cfm" PageTitle="Title Here" SwfPath="images/test.swf" />

For now this works really well, ultimatly it would be nice to go back and use one swf and then pass the elements into it rather than a seperate swf for each header.

I am trying to load a swf using CSS, do you know hoe to do so?
I mean can you use a DIV tag, and from the CSS put it's properties to have a background image, and also a flash file?

this is how I would write it

html sample
<div id="menu"></div>

CSS sample
#menu {
backgound-ulr: {what ever.swf);
load: swf;
}

However that those not work.

I need some help I am trying to learne CSS.
