New JS sample code posted to Adobe Active Content center for the IE update

We have posted sample JavaScript code on the Active Content Developer Center to help developers with the IE update for ActiveX. It is an additional resource and goes a little further than the recommendation posted by Microsoft by allowing developers to use a single external JS file versus one per OBJECT tag.

    The sample code has a little problem, path error 🙂

    Would Adobe ever consider endorsing Geoff Stearns’ Flash Object? use it on projects regularly as it streamlines the whole Flash-into-HTML process, as well as providing version checking and upgrade options. And I beleive it already overcomes the ActiveX update to IE.

    Hi Paul — When you say “endorse”, what do you mean? What difference would it be from today?jd

    Well it’d be great to see Flash Object referenced and given Adobe’s ‘seal of approval’ on the DevNet page as well as your example as personally I think Flash Object is a much more flexible workaround.Currently Flash Object feels like an insider’s secret when it really should be promoted as a serious alternative to the standard object and embed HTML code. Just a thought!

    I do have to agree with Paul. There’s some great JavaScript packages out there that have had countless development hours put into them and are widely accepted by advanced Flash programmers.The IE limitation is a great opportunity to take these JS packages mainstream. They already should be used in most cases over embed tags. Until now, no one has been able to push them hard enough to take them mainstream, but you could easily do so.

    Great to hear about the backwords IE getting updated fix. How about the huge bug with Firefox on Linux and Flash 9, the bug being that Flash 9 doesn’t have a version for Linux. That would be nice.
