    I can't get my Flash web doc to center on my browser

    Maybe this is more of an html question but I can't get my Flash web doc to be centered vertically opn my browser.

    Here's my code before the object tag:
    PHP Code:
    <center>
    <
    table cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" border="0"><tr><td valign="center" align="center"
    Here is the site:

    thanks

    Hello

    You mean centered in the webpage right?

    Open up the source for the page, find the <object> tags and put a <center> tag around them :

    <center><object>blah .... blah ... </object></center>

    Edit your html file, make sure there isn't a DOCTYPE because that'll mess this up and change all the height and width attributes of the OBJECT and EMBED tags to 100%.

    Then put this AS on the first frame of your Flash movie:
    code:

    Stage.scaleMode = "noScale";
    Stage.align = "CM";

    "I feel like a king!"

    If you have Dreamweaver, it's quite simple. I never write the raw code but Dreamweaver generates this:

    <BODY bgcolor="#555555">
    <!-- URL's used in the movie-->
    <!-- text used in the movie-->
    <!--image viewersSeldom BlueSeldom BlueNOSTALGIACHAMPAGNE PANNIERSHARE THE PASSIONPASTICHE-->
    <div align="center">
    <OBJECT classid="clsid27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000"
    codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,0,0"
    WIDTH="800" HEIGHT="550" ALIGN="middle">
    <PARAM NAME=movie VALUE="index.swf">
    <PARAM NAME=quality VALUE=high>
    <PARAM NAME=bgcolor VALUE=#555555>
    <EMBED src="index.swf" quality=high bgcolor=#555555 WIDTH="800" HEIGHT="550" ALIGN="middle"
    TYPE="application/x-shockwave-flash" PLUGINSPAGE="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer"></EMBED>
    </OBJECT>
    </div><div align="center"> WIDTH="800" HEIGHT="550" ALIGN="middle">

    notice the references to "center" and "middle".
