Using a SWF as a Background Image
This is not a recommend practice, but it is possible to use a SWF as a background in place of an image. Simply merge the instructions for placing HTML content above a SWF with the instructions for scaling your SWF to 100% of the browser's width and height.
Working (but ugly) example using "exactFit": dynamic publishing.
- Tested successfully on Mac (Safari 4, FF3.6, Opera 10 & 10.5, Chrome) and Windows XP (IE6, FF3.5, Safari 4, Chrome)
- The HTML content will need to be placed in a container element, such as a
<div>in order to position it using CSS.
- This example does not take into account what will happen if SWFObject is not successfully embedded — the page will become unusable because the CSS assumes the SWF will be successfully embedded.
- You can use
exactFitif you prefer; this was just a quick example.
- You can use static publishing instead of dynamic publishing if you prefer.
