View Full Version : website makes selections on mouse over on flash files

Nov 9th, 2006, 10:13 PM
My website makes selections on mouse over to the flash files I have embeded. I would like to know the way to disable the mouse over. I have found this to be different from disable right-click, because disable right click does not solve the problem.

To see the site http://www.nyamasdanceeducation.com.

Thanks you in advance for your help. :confused:

I guess you're talking about 'click to activate...' in IE?

You have to update how you embed the Flash: http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/workshop/author/dhtml/overview/activating_activex.asp

Athough that info is helpful as well. What I meant was the grey selection box that appears around my swf file when curser is over that part of the page. ei- the nav and the picture slideshow.

Read the link in the post?

Another link which will be useful: http://www.adobe.com/devnet/activecontent/

The most popular method is to use document.write or apend the HTML content with the embed using Javascript.
