thanks for going through the work of putting that together! It’s a little different, basically when I goto your link – your content loads and stretches to ‘exact fit’ the size of my browser. So, the entire image looks distorted.
If I resize my browser window, it’s resizing to match – no matter what I set my screen size at.
I tried to d/l the flash file, and did – but when I tried to open it, I got th message that flash couldn’t ‘seek the file mdTest.fla’ whatever that means.
I’ve been trying to solve this problem for a year I think, I just keep putting it off because I can’t figure it out.
I don’t want the content to stretch to fit the entire browser, because it then becomes distorted. All I want is for my file to ‘shrink’ down to fit a monitor/browser that is say 800x600, and my flash height is 650pixels. Sometimes users have tons of ‘junk’ attatched to their IE or Firefox, like yahoo search, etc – and that reduces the amount of screen space for your movie. In cases like this, I want the image to ‘shrink’ down to fit – but, I don’t want the image to expand and stretch out to fit a -larger- monitor. I want it to either show at 650pixels H, or smaller – never bigger.
Kinda confusing! Like I said, a mystery!
Thanks again for your troubles – md

This is what I was imagining your problem to be, and if I am imagining correctly, it should also solve that problem. If the height of the browser window is less then 650 when the page loads, the content is scaled. Otherwise, the content isn’t scaled. The .fla is at the same location with a different extension.[/quote]
