Flash 4 and Visual Basic 6

Flash 4 and Visual Basic 6

Flash 4 and Visual Basic 6

I need to show a flash movie as an introduction screen to my Visual Basic 6 application  I have tried:

With ShockwaveFlash1
     .LoadMovie l_lngLayer, l_strMoviePath
End With

But nothing happens.  No errors either.

I have also experimented with the FSCommand but I must be missing something.  I am not very familiar with ActiveX controls either.

Please help.  Thanks.

RE: Flash 4 and Visual Basic 6

ur solution lies in shockwave control
in visual basic just go to components and add shockwave plugin control ,the control will be visible on toolbar and then place the control on ur form and go to its custom property in property box , there u should give the path to shockwave file the movie will then be seen when u run ur program

RE: Flash 4 and Visual Basic 6

great, putting the path in the custom property box worked, thanks.
