View Full Version : flash movie does not load when set dynamically by ASP

07-03-2006, 09:54 PM
I have implemented the fix for flashcontent on a webpage provided by Macromedia (Adobe) in its update to dreamweaver 8.02 (which came up due to some lost legal battle, bla bla bla...). It works fine with normal flash files, it even works fine with flasvars and dynamically set flashvars (usually with ASP in my case). However setting the movie value dynamically with ASP does not work.

So when I have the movie value determined by a ASP variable (which worked fine before the fix) now it does not load... for example:

<script type="text/javascript">
AC_FL_RunContent( 'codebase','http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,29,0','width','560','height','385','src','<%= brochure_swf %>','quality','high','pluginspage','http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer','movie','<%= brochure_swf %>' ); //end AC code

So here the movie name (value) is set by ASP in the variable brochure_swf ....

When looking online in the sourcecode of a page, the movie value is set correctly but for some reason the movie does not load...

Anyone else have this problem and maybe have a solution...

When you installed the EOLAS fix, you needed to disable any mxp's then install, then re-enable the mxps

Otherwise the fix wont work right... I don't work with ASP at all, but this could be your problem.

Couldn't you not do the same thing with XML though? Thought...
