Quick IE Fix

Michael Moore (no, not the documentary director!) brought this little IE 7
quick fix to my attention.

Just below the last in your HTML page, insert the following Javascript:

Open a new document in Notepad or your HTML editor, and copy & paste the following content into it:

theObjects = document.getElementsByTagName(“object”);
for (var i = 0; i < theObjects.length; i++)
{
theObjects[i].outerHTML = theObjects[i].outerHTML;
}

Save this file as fixit.js

There is also the SWF Object: SWFObject is a Javascript file used to embed Flash content. It detects the Flash plug-in in all major web browsers and is designed to make embedding Flash movies as easy as possible. Its also search engine friendly, degrades gracefully, can be used in valid HTML and XHTML 1.0 documents*, and is forward compatible, so it should work for years to come.

SWFObject has a nice little API for adding flash vars and upgrading the Flash Player.

J.

Get SWFObject

Debug.log.doDebug(”Hello World”);

Hello World! Okay, well, maybe just my small part of the world.

This blog is going to be my development blog for the things that I work on at RealEyes Media. Currently that includes ActionScript 2 & 3, Flex, Flash, ColdFusion, a little Java when I get to play, maybe some C# here and there. I’m currently the co-manager of the Rocky Mountain Adobe Users Group (www.rmaug.com) and a Certified Adobe Instructor. So what I’d like to provide is some information and code that you can use and learn from.

Shoot me a comment of email me and let me know if there is anything specific that you’d like to see involving the above technologies. Also, if there is anything incorrect with what I post, please let me know…cause I need to learn too.
