Hey Jeff,

Thanks again for the code dude. I put it up on my site and it seems to be working very nicely.

Now I've got to make some more and better demos to put up!

To get you up to speed, Bobbin, have you ever noticed that in internet Explorer, anytime there's a Flash animation or an embedded player, you have to click on it once to get rid of the "Click to activate this control" and then click again to actually control it as you should?

That initial "click to activate" message is what this code gets rid of.


While the code is much appreciated, methinks it would be easier for me to tell users "having trouble with this page? Get Firefox." Wink

IE gives me the "click here" message. FF loads everything with no fuss, no muss.

Has nothing to do with "trouble". This is not a workaround for a bug. It's simply a small bit of code to make the user experience more pleasant. If you need to message to your clients that the page best works in a specific browser, then it's time to hire a web professional. Your website should work correctly in any browser. Period. And the bit of code fun I've posted is one small step in that direction.

IE still has nearly 60% market share though...

Easy, pardner, I agree. Just making a point.

However, now that I think about it: if the most popular browser on the market can't properly execute a relatively simple piece of code, then I'd call that a "bug". IMHO.

Just to clarify: when you said "put it with all of your html files on your site", I'm assuming you mean it goes in the root directory, right?

Nobody said anything about not executing. This isn't a workaround for getting something to work. It's purely cosmetic.

The files can go wherever you want. Just make sure your paths are adjusted accordingly. If you keep everything in the same folder, you don't need to worry about paths.

Yeah, it's not that it doesn't display it properly, it's just that yet another company decided to sue Microsoft and they were forced to do something silly that nobody else has been forced to do.
