Floating Flash!

ENTERING THE CODE


Ok now open your html editor or if you're more advanced, just open notepad or whatever you use. You'll need to add a layer over the top of your webpage (this allows it to work independently). Ok, now insert the code for a flash movie in the layer you created.


example code:


Finally, heres the final touch. Ok, locate the Flash OBJECT ID. Within this you see "para name." After the two para name lines, add the following code:




Save what you've done and preview it in Internet Explorer. The background of your movie is transparent and it should look really great! We done it this way manually. But Flash can automatically add the wmode to a published movie.

To do this just choose: File--> Publish Settings: Select Transparent Windowless from Window Mode list (publishing as a HTML file). and Publish it.

And from there, all you have to do is insert the the flash file into a layer over the webpage for it to be displayed over.


CONCLUSION

So thats it. There you have it. One line of code is all that makes those Floating Flash movies so annoying. But the reason I made this tutorial was to show you how to do it, and I think also it can be used to make your site even more dynamic and catchy/interesting. Im sure it can be used malaciously as well. Image just a big black square that floated over the webpage and you couldnt close it. Anyways, I hope you enjoy the tutorial.
