    Good Morning everyone,

    This is my first offical post on this forumn. Im creating a resume with FP2000 & mostly in Swish (its like Flash) that Im going to be distributing on CD. I wanted my CD presentation to be in full screen browser view, so I found a code at a place called the "The Javascript s..." and added to my site.
    Now when I preview my presentation the begining jazz loop I added is doubling over itself, & when you click the sound on/off button it stops 1 loops, & you can still hear it playing. If I remove the javascript the presentation works perfectly, but unfortunately I don't have a full screen presentation then? What have I done wrong? Is this a faluty script, or do I need a different script? Im a newbie at this and i would appreciate any help. To show you what I mean i posted both files: Resume1 (without script) & (Resume2 w/script) & also added my flash files if you need to see them.
    You can download my examples at: http://uniteddistributorscanada.hypermart.net/

    Thank you very much

    PS: heads up on the pop ups

    Actually I've seen some examples of resume websites and I thought they looked really nice so I probably stick to that design format, but thanks for the notification.

    Ok, you've got a few problems here. I'm going to post each in a new post so I can keep my thoughts together.

    First problem is that you're declaring your flash object inside a fixed-size DIV and also giving it a fixed size of its own.

    Use the attached file for your resume HTML file.

    Second problem is that you're launching the resume page from itself, which opens up two instances of your flash object. This means that your sound loop gets instantiated twice, making it sound all funky.

    Use the attached file for your index HTML file.

    Third problem is that you're putting all this on a CD. HTML is made for the Web. The easiest way to create something like this would be to to export the SWF as an EXE file and set your FSMode to fullscreen. You can then create and autorun.inf file that specifies resume.exe to start when the CD is entered in the CD Tray, making it a true Flash CD.

    I'm not sure what kind of support Swish offers for that, but Flash has full support for EXE export.

    Note:

    I modified the resume.htm file to eliminate the white margins around the flash.

    Here's the final file:

    Hi Transio,

    Im so glad you know what the problems where, I have literally been working on these problems for 4 days (im a bit of a rookie). You suggest going the flash player route instead of browser, but I read somewhere that this is a disadvantage: "it won't be mac compatible, creating a hybrid cd will be trickier as when you simply use a browser." What do you think? Ive tried to download your examples & for some reason thier not completely downloading, I'll try again and if they continue to not download, would it be possible to email it to me?

    Once again, Thanks (I MEAN HUGE Thanks)
