Have you tried using a Page Viewer Web Part?

Answer #2    Answered By: Mary Adams     Answered On: Nov 29

This guy has a Flash web  part. I've never used it, can't vouch for it.

I have had flash  working on a WSS site. You need the good old CEWP
(Content Editor Web Part). Develop your flash file as usual, upload
the swf into a site's doc lib (or if you are going to have many into
their own flash doc library). Apply the appropriate permissions so
users have access rights to the file. Place the CEWP on a page and
then using the "Source editor" enter code similar to the following:

<object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000"
wflash.cab#version=6,0,0,0" width="580" height="500" id="zan
calendar 12" align="middle">
<param name="allowScriptAccess" value="sameDomain" />
<param name="movie" value="http://WSSsite/subsite/Document
Library/flashfilename.swf" />
<param name="quality" value="high" />
<param name="bgcolor" value="#ffffff" />
<embed src="flashfilename.swf" quality="high" bgcolor="#ffffff"
width="580" height="500" name="flash file name" align="middle"
allowScriptAccess="sameDomain" type="application/x-shockwave-flash"
pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" />

If your site is SSL then change the macromedia URLs to https.

Thank you so much…this works perfectly. Now I need to connect this Flash Object with a custom List where I will store multiple sets(rows) of Parameters associated with a variety of animation scenarios that I have built for the “actors” in my Flash Object.

Does anyone have any ideas on how to Connect my Custom List to this Flash CEWP?

Answer #5    Answered By: Katy Patton     Answered On: Nov 29

You can access the custom list programmatically through the web  service interface. I know flash  can talk to a web service relatively easily. If you need more info on how to do that let me know and I’ll see if I can get a step-by-step. I don’t do flash, but another developer I work with is very good with it, and has actually pulled data  from a web service.

If it’s not to much trouble for your friend familiar  with Flash.

Also, if they are available for some “Actions Script MX Flash development” contract work that would be great. I’m willing to pay to get something done on my schedule.

Otherwise, I’ve been thinking about inserting the CEWP code somewhere inside a “customized” WSS list entry Edit page (via Frontpage) …

It already gets the row passed to it when select edit on the custom list …

Is there anyway to make an Edit or Display page into a web  part?

I would like to learn more about how to use this web  service approach….sounds like I could do this as a web part, kind of like a CEWP? (paste custom code and go).

Can you “Connect” a basic web part  with a custom web service?

I played with this sometime ago. Putting something like this into a CEWP
worked for what I needed to do:

<object type="application/x-shockwave-flash"
data="http://beeks.eu/swf/Railway.swf" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">http://beeks.eu/swf/Railway.swf"
width="200" height="200">
<param name="movie"
value="http://beeks.eu/swf/Railway.swf" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">http://beeks.eu/swf/Railway.swf" />

You could use a CEWP with javascript to query a web  service i think, but if
you're talking about creating a custom edit page for a list in a web part, i
would go with an asp.net 2.0 style custom web part  using either the web service
interface or the object model. the downside to this approach is that you lose
the "no assembly required" benefit of the CEWP. I guess maybe i'm a little
unclear as to what exactly you're trying to accomplish. is this the same problem
you were wanting to solve with flash, or a different one?

Answer #10    Answered By: Donta Kirkland     Answered On: Nov 29

Yes...this is the next part  of the same problem...I need to "connect" a
custom list web  part on a page with the "Action script driven  MX Flash swf"
web part...

I am assuming I do not have the ability to pass a row of ActionScript
parameters stored in a Custom list to a CEWP web part, right?

So, I am exploring developing  a web service to interact with the object
model. Unless someone can suggest an "out of the box - no assembly required
