    [RESOLVED] SWF doesn't doesn't appear in IE8 - $

    Why doesn't this flash map show in IE8, but it works in Chrome and Firefox?

    I would very much appreciate your help. Please submit your best price and estimated time to fix it to: jeremy@thecreativelaboratory.com

    Regards,

    Jeremy

    I guess the link was supposed to be:

    http://creativesolutionsinhealthcare...ty_locator.htm

    The flash seems to load appropriately. I see a flash vertical menu on the left side.

    The problem is the map. Click the "communities" tab to see the map. Then select the "about us" tab and then the "community locator" map at the bottom. The map doesn't show up sometimes. If it doesn't show up and you refresh, it does show up.

    Try using SWFObject for the map embed instead of the embed / object method since it's also being used to load the top SWF (bookstore).

    PHP Code:
    <div id="mapcontent"><script type="text/javascript">
    var 
    so = new SWFObject("map.swf""map""640""440""6");
    so.write("mapcontent");</script></div

    I tried this code, but I'm just not sure I am doing it right. Would you mind helping with the attached page?

    If the problem persists, I suspect the error is with map.swf. As mentioned before, the map shows up if you reload the page.

    I think what's happening is the function that builds the map isn't being called once the XML loads. The reason it works on a reload is because states.xml is already cached from before.

    I can provide a quote to fix the map.swf application if that's the case.
