Flash-based website will not fit screen help!

by agutier2 / February 2, 2009 1:14 PM PST

Hi,

First of all, I'd like to thank you all for taking some of your time to read my post, and for also giving me some of your time to answer it if you can.

I currently am working on a flash-based website (www.russellheights.ca) which is for a community house here in Ottawa.
I don't say I'm the best in flash but I self taught myself how to do Flash. However I have no clue about HTML or website building.

I was wondering if anyone would be able to help me, I cannot fit my flash object in a screen resolution. I have a big screen which I use to design my flashes, however at the time of designing the website I am using Web Page Maker v.3. which is I think, the best thing that ever happened to me as it does pretty much everything (or so I thought), therefore I cannot make my flash object fit on normal screen resolutions (my boss's)

Does anyone know a little HTML or how could I fix this problem, I export my websites from web page maker but I change the code and scripts once exported with notepad or anything, therefore if anyone knows how to do this and/or the code, I would be able to implement it.

I appreciate your help and consideration.

Truly yours,

A flash 'window' has a fixed size in pixels and any html around it doesn't change that. So all you've got to do is make it smaller to start with.

It might help to find a 800x600 monitor to work on! Old CRT's like that are practically free.

Thanks a lot for the info.

I would like to also add, that it is possible to center the flash and make it fit by using HTML by using a relative percentage instead of an absolute specific height and width.

I was going through some Adobe Dreamweaver CS3 tutorials and they somewhere mention that it could be displayed as a percentage.

Unfortunately at the time I wasn't looking at that problem therefore I didn't get to keep the link to go and find it again.

Also, as you commented before of sizing it with a 800X600 monitor I can't really do that. I don't have such monitor, however I could re-size it as you said. and I found the code to center it I just want to make sure that this code is the appropriate one.

The code is:

<div style="position:relative;text-align:center">

//code for my object/flash

</div>

I was wondering if this would work, taking into consideration that I re-sized my object to an 800X600 screen resolution.

I appreciate your help and consideration.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
