View Full Version : How to activate swf or QT file on mouseover

14 Dec 2006, 09:38 PM
Hi ..actually this is my very first post and I'm a novice trying to develop a website. I am using the software of choice for poor people ...NVU ..and I have a very basic question.

I want to play an embedded swf or QT file one a mouseover action. A great example of what I'm trying to do can be seen at Yahoo's main page. On the left is a ginger-bread man that can be activated on a mouse over. (hopefully it will be there when you visit).

I know how to embed the file but I can only make it auto play ..or play when you click the play button. What I want is for it to move on a mouse-over.

I also know how to have objects change shape on a mouse over ...but for some reason I can't get the swf or QT file to play.

Can someone help me with this..by posting the code? I think I may need to develop some sort of Java code.

on (mouseOver) {

Something like that? I need more code to understand what you are trying to do, but that AS (actionscript) is very basic.
