    resolved

    I want to use a small Flash animation in an otherwise static html website just to spruce it up a bit but I don't want people who don't have Flash to get a blank box in it's place.

    Is there a way to show a gif in it's place for users that don't have the plug-in without redirecting them to another page?

    Hi

    Oooops, Sorry there nothing to do that but you can go to [Flash 5 Version Detection] here In flash kit, there is an equation that won't take more that 10 sec. to redirect the non flash user to the other page.

    Well I have found a so so answer. I placed a static image as a background image in the table cell the flash is in.

    When I view it in a browser that has Flash I cannot see the background image because it is behind the Flash which looks normal.

    When I viewed it in a browser that did not have Flash installed it shows the background image. The only bug is that it also shows that little multi-colored box in the corner that shows up when a plug-in is missing.

    Well have you tried to make the FLA transparet if not then try to add this HTML code :

    param = winmode value=transparent

    or do it from the Publish setting

    SOAD,
    do you have the ability to use ASP for this website if so your check page can detect flash using script and return the value to the server which will write the TD code for the swf or gif.

    e.g.
    page loads - page.asp
    detector checks true
    requests itself - page.asp?flash=true
    server writes animation. swf
    or
    page loads - page.asp
    detector checks false
    requests itself - page.asp?flash=false
    server writes animation. gif

    Hope this helps,
    Jon 8o)
