    What exactly are you talking about?

    Dose it say click to activate this control ? - Solution and Explanation

    On opening my flash site in the browser (IE) the loadMovie component doesn't trigger the animation automatically (as expected). Someone told me that was due to IE protection (of media content... or something like that) on flash sites. Are you familiar with flash?

    I just tried with the following ActionScript syntax on the first frame, and it worked fine for me.
    Not sure what might be wrong in your case, did you remember to specify the location of the file to be loaded? I.e.
    The dropZone is the name of a movie clip placed on your scene. Simply using _root will align your movie with the upper left cornor of your scene, as referenced at

    The markup i used to load the movie:
    <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN" "">
    <html lang="en">
        <title>My first Website</title>
    <div><object type="application/x-shockwave-flash"
    data="test.swf" style="width:320px;height:240px;">
    <param name="movie"

    First of all thank you for your help, but I'm convinced the problem is of a different nature. When i test the 'site.swf' of the site by exporting it, the homepage content (displayed in a section of the site, external home.swf) appears immediately, but online the result is otherwise. The code in the 1st frame of the actions layer is correct, so maybe it's just down to a simple delay due probably to the size of the home.swf or the speed connection... so much for IE protection...

    Well, i tested it both online and offline in IE7, and it worked.

    I tested by using the .swf alone as well just now, and that worked to. So its really unclear to me what the problem might be in your case. Maybe someone more familiar with flash/actionscript will be able to help.

    The most likely case is probably a large file size in which case you should put a preloader.
