    Getting Around "Click to activate and use this control" in MSIE

    so basically I'm working on this project for a client and I have created a XML/Flash/ASP.NET application. Only problem is that in Internet Explorer (and possibly Opera, but I haven't tested there yet) you must click a swf to "activate" it before you can use it.

    Obviously this is a big pain and I don't want it to continue happening. What can I do?

    Here's the source code I'm using to display it:

    Code:
    <object id="seatmap" width="600px" height="700px" classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase="http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=7,0,0,0">
    <param name="movie" value="swf\andrews-mainstage.swf">
    <param name="quality" value="High">
    <param name="play" value="True">
    <param name="loop" value="False">
    <param name="menu" value="False">
    <param name="scale" value="Showall">
    <param name="flashvars" value="perf=923&mos=22">
    </object>

    Also I've tried using this guy's javascript:
    http://www.thefutureoftheweb.com/blo...e-this-control

    But it results in one of the parameters not getting passed, so that won't do.
