Javascript :: Detect If Mobile Browser Can Install Flash?

Feb 15, 2012

I've run across several websites, including mine, that prompt users to download Flash even though their browser cannot install it. I want to avoid this confusing messaging by detecting whether a mobile browser can install Flash, not whether it has Flash.

Some known mobile browsers that can't install Flash are:

iOS Safari
Android Chrome beta
Android Firefox

Instead of building an ever-changing list of Flash installability, I would like to detect this in a general way in Javascript.


Javascript :: Detect Flash And Prompt To Install?

Jan 30, 2012

If no flash is installed and one browses to http:[url].... it'll launch a popup box: How exactly are they doing this? Through some jQuery java-script code snippet or other? Second, I would like to know if there is a better way to inform the user that they need flash. Or is this an appropriate way?

Javascript 3 :: Can A JavaScript Function Detect Which Flash DOM Object Called It

May 20, 2011

Here's the challenge: I have a Flash movie which will be embedded in a page using an unknown DOM ID that I want to be able to identify/store for callback in a JS function. My ideal user flow would be: User clicks button in Flash. Flash pauses any animations / video / sounds / etc. Flash calls an injected JS function to display a page-covering overlay experience. When user closes overlay experience, a callback method on the Flash object is called. Flash resumes playback.

The problem is, when AS3 uses the"functionName", args...) method, there doesn't seem to be a DOM event triggered, and thus it is impossible to tell which object called a JS function, so having a "registerMe()" function doesn't seem to work. Basically, the injected JS function has no way to determine which DOM object to call, because the ID of the Flash object is unknown.

Javascript :: Sending An Email From The Browser With Javascript And Flash?

Aug 5, 2011

I'm wondering if its possible to do what I'm thinking, and if it is possible, does anyone know of a flash object that does what I need? I know a Flash object can provide a javascript API to interact with it, what I dont know is can Flash send an email directly without the need to talk to the webserver to do so? If thats possible would it not be possible to write a flash object that did nothing but provide an API to send emails? Has such a thing been created that is out there for others to use?

I'm looking to create a email form on a web page but the site is static (no server scripting). In my situation server scripting is not possible as there is no server, the site is 100% client side on a CD/DVD/USB Stick.

ActionScript 2.0 :: Possible For Flash To Detect Browser Is Printing?

Feb 11, 2010

Does this sound at all possible (doesn't to me):Flash site is open...

1. User goes to their browser's options and chooses PRINT.
2. Flash (or Javascript) detects that and tells Flash.
3. Flash then responds by modifying what it's displaying before printing begins

ActionScript 3.0 :: Flash / SWF File To Detect URL Browser Is Currently On

Jul 31, 2009

I'm mostly an art/design oriented person but am trying to learn some new things. I'm currently working on a test site for myself as a self-learning piece that will be a CSS laid out site with some Flash elements. Anyway, I'm completely stuck on this current problem..I will be placing a SWF file that will live on each page but will need to do different things based on which page the browser currently is on. It's nothing complex...will probably be something as simple as "on enter frame, if the browser is on this page 'http:www...', then jump to frame '#' ". This is how I'm placing the SWF file through the CSS.[code]

I read that "FlashVars" was the start of how to do this but as you can see in that last line, that's as far as I got on the CSS side. I have ZERO clue how to make the SWF file detect that value or detect the page the browser is on and then do something with AS3. Does this all make sense? I've searched through books and online for a little over 6 hours today and have not been able to figure this part out. Is it a simple line of code I need in the flash file or am I embarking on more than I can handle at this stage?

Javascript :: Detect Time On A Playing Flash Video?

May 13, 2010

I have a video playing on my page. I want to show and hide some div's when the video reaches a certain point. Lets say hide something on 10th second and show it again on 20th second.I can easily do it in HTML5 with video tag and currentTime attribute but for IE I have to create the same functionality and I think with flash based videos (from YouTube or something like that).Is there a way to detect the current time of a video playing on my website, embeded from YouTube, Metacafe or any other video sharing site?I know I could detect it in flash and make it run some JavaScript function but I don't have flash nor have the skills to do it in AS3.

Javascript :: Detect If An Embedded Swf Is Created With Flex Or Flash?

Apr 15, 2011

Is there a way (in javascript) to detect if an embedded .swf was created with Flash Professional or Flex.We have a page with several tabs, each of which can contain an .swf.All tabs are defined within the same HTML file and the javascript framework calls a .rewind() and .play() on the swf when the containing tab becomes active.This works great on regular flash animation, making sure they start playing from the beginning when the tab is opened. On an swf created with Flex however, the rewind and play wreak havoc on the Flex framework and the application doesn't load.

The best way we've come up with to detect Flex is to count the number of frames the .swf has. With flex that's always 2. But this doesn't sound like the best way.We've also tried to add a callback method with ExternalInterface on the Flex application preinitialize event.Unfortunately this event is called quite late in the application startup and the javasctipt code checks the callback before the Flex code has added it.

Javascript :: Jquery - Detect Flash Object Click?

Jun 8, 2011

Is there a way I can have JavaScript/jQuery know when a Flash object has been clicked (and still have Flash process the click)?

I tried putting a table on top of the object with position: fixed and a z-index and the object set to param name='wmode' value='transparent' so I could have my JavaScript detect which column was clicked using jQuery's click(), but the clicks were never intercepted by JavaScript (Chromium Linux).

Detect When Flash Player Is Disabled In A Browser Using Script?

I know how to detect if Flash player is installed in a browser. I'm using the hasFlashPlayerVersion() function of swfobject for that. However, I can't seem to find any documentation on how to detect if the plug-in is installed and just disabled. I didn't see any documentation in the Flash Player Detection Kit that checks if the plug-in is enabled either.

ActionScript 2.0 :: Detect Browser Window Height Within Flash?

Apr 21, 2011

I have a flash website which has the following dimensions:

width = 100% of browser window
height = 1500px

What I'm trying to do is have a movie clip with the instance name of 'msie' vertically and horizontally centred to the middle of the browser window (not just the stage).

The current code I'm using is:
msie._x = Stage.width / 2;
msie._y = Stage.height / 2;

This correctly centres the movieclip to the width of the browser window but because the height of the stage is 1500px, it positions it at 750px from the top instead of being vertically centred in the browser window.

how I can get this to work. I feel like all I need to is replace the word 'Stage.' with something else in the code.

Flash :: Javascript - Detect Weather A User Has Any Sort Of Flash Blocking Plugin Installed?

Feb 3, 2010

I'm wondering wether there's a Javascript way to detect wether a user has any sort of flash blocking plugin installed so i can accommodate these users properly. For example, I use 'click to flash', but sites that use SiFR to render text are littered with "click to flash" buttons, which is getting very annoying. I don't use SiFR in my designs for this reason. But if I could spot wether there's a flash blocking plugin installed, I would simply not call the SiFR function.

Javascript :: Detect When Key And Mouse Events Occur Inside Of A Flash Application?

Mar 5, 2012

I've some very old Flash applications, which we don't want to rebuild to add a new feature. We simply need to detect when the user has become idle. So, if the Flash application receives no key or mouse events after 3 minutes, we want to track that time till the user interacts with the application again.

We've considered wrapping the applications in newer Flash applications to include the key/mouse event tracking; however, early research shows that some of our apps are so old that they use event systems or AVM's (ActionScript Virtual Machines) that are incompatible. Also, it seems that mouse events on the inner application don't bubble up to the outer application. (I think the direction of event processing is backwards in versions of Flash prior to 8)

Anyhow, the next idea on the table is to see if we can determine when the user stops interacting with the old Flash applications using JavaScript. Can anyone confirm whether or not it is possible to detect, using JavaScript only, when a swf in an HTML document loses focus or key and mouse events stop and start occurring on the swf?

Javascript :: When Does A Browser Initialize Flash?

Dec 15, 2010

I am working on optimizing a page that has Flash on it. I am using optimization practices like moving Javascript to the bottom to not block. Removing inline scripts. And minimizing HTTP requests with minified css and js.The majority of the pages content is in the flash, so loading it as soon as possible is the goal. Currently there is a 2 ~ 3 second delay before the flash is even rendered (using firebug profiling)

I am wondering at what point in the page load does the browser start initializing flash on the page? Is it once the DOM element containing the flash has been rendered? Is it once the complete onload event has been fired? I imagine it probably differs with each browsers as well.

Javascript :: Flash Always On Top In Android Browser Workaround?

Apr 2, 2012

I have a website with a simple Flash animation behind some text and semi-transparent images as a background. I have used swfobject to embed it and set wmode opaque to make it display correctly in most browsers.For browsers without Flash, the user gets a static background image instead and would not know they were missing anything. However, Android users get the flash background on top of everything as per the known issue with how Flash content is rendered in the Android browser making the site unusable.

I have added a crude browser sniff javascript function to the swfobject code to prevent it from loading for any user agent whith 'Mobile' in it:

<script type="text/javascript">
if (navigator.userAgent.indexOf('Mobile') == -1)

The only problem I have left is for Android users browsing with 'Mobile View' turned off as the user agent pretends to be a desktop version of Safari (I think). I do not wish to disable the Flash animation for all Safari users. Is there a way of blocking it for just Andriod users - even if they have 'Mobile View' disabled?

Possible ideas include:detecting the Flash version with JavaScript or Flash. Does Android use specific versions (version numbers) of Flash which are different from the desktop equivalent? blocking the specific user agents used by Android devices with 'Mobile View' disabled.
