Post 3+ Months Ago

This is a website I was working on, and it has been showing up as intended on Firefox, but the pop-up containing the flash movie does not seem to be showing up with the correct dimensions in Internet Explorer. Im not very programming-savy, but I would like to know how I can have the flash movie cover the entire pop-up window.

the code from the home.html file calls the pop-up containing the flash movie (2.html) >>
It is in this html file that i had specified the dimensions of the flash movie. But it is the home.html that calls for the dimensions of the pop-up window.

Does anyone know how I can correct this problem so that my site shows up as intended in Internet Explorer? Any help is appreciated, thank you!

Thanks for the reply, I should've told you that I'm running Internet Explorer 7, but I would love for my site to show up correctly on versions 6 and up. Does anyone know how I can alter the code accordingly?

I don't know what you mean since they open the same for me in either browser... (I use IE7 and Firefox 3)

I don't know if its just me, but the flash movie in the pop-up window has alot of empty space around the bottom and the right side of the page. It seems to be the case for every computer running older versions of Internet Explorer. I don't see that extraneous space in Firefox though.

Chrome shows the site more like Firefox, but still the window is a bit too small for the flash movie... I doubt it would take too much to alter the code so that it works perfectly in Firefox AND Internet Explorer..does anyone have any suggestions as to what I can do?

Try 100% for width and height.

im sorry im not sure what you mean, i specified the height and width according to how the site opens in Firefox.. now im guessing that i have to use some conditional comments in my code to determine the browser that's running in order to use the respective height and width so that the flash covers the entire pop up.


im thinking something along these lines...

well i had to scale the original flash movie down..so i set the height and width in pixels..when i do that, the movie becomes even more undersized again.

Not the movie, but the frame/div/pop-up, whatever it is that you are using to hold the movie in.
