05-18-2001, 03:26 PM
I have created a SWF file with the FlashTyper. Everything looks great except when it is viewed on a Mac. I need the background color to be white. I have designated this in the code and it still shows grey when viewed on a Mac. When it is viewed on a PC it is fine. I tried setting the BG to transparent but no luck. Can anyone please help me with this.

Thank You,
Bob Conley

I never used FlashTyper.
I just tried it now and figured out that there is something wrong with the html object/embed that FlashTyper outputs in the "preview.html".
I tried it with a pink (#FF00FF) text on green (#00FF00) background:

For the object tag it uses
PARAM NAME=bgcolor VALUE=#00FF00 (thats ok, in your case it should be #FFFFFF )
For the embed tag it uses
bgcolor=#FF00FF (That is wrong, it is the color of the text, and should also be #00FF00, in your case #FFFFFF)

I wrote an email to Flashkit to let them know.
