Ok, everyone (or at least a lot of people) know about the transparency option for a flash movie, if you tweak the properties for it, when embeded into a HTML document…
Also, anyone who has tried it, knows that it won’t work on Netscape… or in Macintosh (there neither I.E. or N.N. show transparency)
Well… transparent swf is so cool and useful, that is’t a shame to not use it, if we are to stick to the standarization and cross browser caracteristics a professional website should have (don’t give me that 75% deal on I.E. vs. Netscape… N.N. has a pretty good release in 6.1, and finally the blockheads that manage it’s development understood that N.N. was doomed if it didn’t run Style Sheets)
I go for simply making the swf not show, if the page detects that the client is running a N.N. browser. Of course the SWF can’t be an information or navigation critical component, just a detail to give life to a website…
My questions are then…
How do you do that?
Is there an actionscript that can tell the movie to go alpha=“0”
if it detects N.N.?
Or how about an HTML or DHTM tag?
Or even a js???..
Thanx in advance for your help.
