Embedding Movies with Flash, Part II: Basic Properties

X-Scaling

One of the Flash movie's properties is X SCALE. You may both set and get this property. The X SCALE property designates the scaling factor of the movie frame in the x direction. You can set and get Flash properties by their sequence numbers. The X SCALE property is no. 2, so you get its value by going:

  mySwf.TGetProperty(timeline, 2);

And you set it in a similar way:

  mySwf.TSetProperty(timeline, 2, value);

Play the following movie by clicking the Play link. Get the X SCALE of the movie by clicking the Get X SCALE link. You should get 100 (the initial scale of the movie is 100%). Scale the movie frame in the x direction by 300% by clicking the Set X SCALE link:

Rewind | Play | Get X SCALE | Set X SCALE

Here is the source code:

<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript" SRC="flashcheck2.js">
</SCRIPT>
<A href="javascript://" onclick="javascript:mySwf2.Rewind();
 return false">Rewind</A> |
<A href="javascript://" onclick="javascript:mySwf2.Play();
 return false">Play</A> |
<A href="javascript://" onclick="javascript:alert(mySwf2.
 TGetProperty('/', 2)); return false">
 Get X SCALE</A> |
<A href="javascript://" onclick="javascript:mySwf2.
 TSetProperty('/', 2, 300); return false">Set X SCALE</A>
<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">
  var mySwf2 = Flash_embedSWF("opener.swf", "opener");
</SCRIPT>
