Everybody! This is important. In a few days, these forums will be moving over to using the totally sweet Discourse platform. To ensure this migration happens smoothly with no loss of content, these forums are currently in a read-only mode. I do apologize for the inconvenience.

There is never a good time to turn the forums off for an extended period of time, but I promise the new forums will be a billion times better. I'm pretty sure of it.

See you all on the other side in a few days, and if you have any (non-technical) questions, please e-mail me at kirupa@kirupa.com. For technical questions, try to find a tutorial that corresponds to what you are looking for and post in the comments section of that page.

Cheers,
Kirupa

Thread: Awkward problem

    Awkward problem

    Somehow I can't help but feeling that the answer to my question is staring me in the face, but I just can't figure this one out. Hope someone here can show me up.

    I'm setting up a blog for a friend of mine who is a musician, so naturally he wants a Flash MP3-player on the site. I'm creating a flash header that will hold the player and some buttons and stuff. No problem with that.

    What I would like to achieve is to make the SWF appear as a integrated part of the site (that is when you scroll the page down, the SWF scrolls with it) yet because it'll be playing music I don't want it to reload when someone clicks a link on the page.

    My first instinct was to make the page in a frameset contained within another page that I hoped would make the whole thing scrollable, but it seems that's not an option.

    Any ideas?

    No ideas?
    I guess it's undoable... I haven't found squat anywhere else either.

    you might want to try iframes.

    Do it with styles.

    html:
    Code:
    <div id="flashHeader">
    ...
    Flash
    ...
    </div>
    and css:
    Code:
    #flashHeader {
    position: fixed;
    }
    And with ie, you have to use absolute positioning.

    that's not what he's trying to accomplish.

    read the original post again. Yes, you are right. sorry my mistake.

    i guess iframe is the right way to go.
