Embedding Movies with Flash, Part III: More Properties

Finding the Movie's Width

The WIDTH property designates the current frame's width. You can get this property, but not set it. The WIDTH property is no. 8, so you get its value by going:

  mySwf.TGetProperty(timeline, 8);

Play the following movie by clicking the Play link. Get the WIDTH of the movie by clicking the Get WIDTH link. Notice that the width of the movie changes as it loads. Click the Get WIDTH link a few times during the loading period:

Rewind | Play | Get WIDTH

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('/', 8)); return false">Get WIDTH</A>
<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">
  var mySwf2 = Flash_embedSWF("opener.swf", "opener");
</SCRIPT>
