View Full Version : Checking Flash player version on page load

Hi all,

What code would i need to add to my site to display a msgBox when the home page is visited?

I need this to inform visitors that my site requires FLash Player 8 to be able to display it correctly.

You could do this by using a simple dreamweaver behaviour pop up message that pops up when the page loads and this could inform your users that they require Flash but the correct way to do this is to use proper Flash detection.

By the way the latest version of Flash Player is 9 but always export your SWF from flash with the oldest version you can get away with, if your movie plays fine with flash player 6 theres no point in making your visitors have flash player 9. This can be changed in the publish settings in flash.

If you go to the Macromedia site and check out the following:-


This explains in great detail how to do this properly.
