If you can embed objects.....can you embed flash?????? I remember 1 guy said he had done this but with the new board his posts have gone. Has anyone tried or attempted Flash embedding?

Yup - It's doable.

You should, in theory, be able to insert almost any HTML Object inside a menu.

I havn't tried it though - Dont seem to have the time :cry:

Andy the syntax? in the array

"<img src=image.gif border=0>","",,"",1

would you put

<embed src="images/flash.swf" quality=high pluginspage="" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="125" height="200">

This I tried and no go... :roll:

I'm working on a contract right now that I chose the Milonic Menu for and they wanted a "flashy logo" and scrolling news. I found that Javascript when included in DHTML didn't work in all browsers but flash did, so I put the Flash inside the Milonic sidemenu. It didn't work initially but that was because I included the quotation marks. After taking them out it worked like a champ. The page won't go live until next month but here is a code snippit. It's an exact copy of the Macromedia code without the quotations in the menu-name-item space. The rest is exactly like the rest of the menu options. You have to have the object tags, then embed the object, but all can be done on that one line.

Hope this helps!

ps: The poll should include an item that says that you use flash but doesn't take away from the huge amount of effort Andy has put in. Flash would be clunkier and wouldn't be able to reproduce everything that has been done.

Thanks very much Tim, yes after thinking about it I realised there would be many restrictions of using flash in the menu. It will enhance alot what can be achieved though.

But yes I finally figured out the quotes thing, and now I off to see what I can do with a bit o' Flash.
