Hi all,

I'm trying to get a flash movie to play on a NetBeans plugin, or help system. As far as i know the only HTML renderer that NetBeans supports is the Swing Html renderer that does not support Flash movies.

Is there any other Renderer that i can use that will allow me to do something like this?

Can i use another renderer to do this in a way that does not break consistency with the IDE? Is JDIC an option?

All the best any clues, workarounds, ideas,
just post away.

Hi,

Thanks for the tip, but i only need to display some Flash documentation, the product you recommend costs money and does allot of stuff that i have no use for.

Plus my problem now is not with the JDIC Browser (i have tested it, it works fine in standalone applications) it is with NetBeans module development that does not recognize the JDIC library; I get exceptions I will have to look into it with more attention.

Thanks anyway.

After much search the only feasible option is to do it with JDIC browser.

There are other options HTML wrappers that work some times, the only time i got 100% good result was using the JDIC browser library.

Now if only i could get JDIC to be added as a library to my NetBeans Standalone module... oh boy.

If you got a tip for me, please post it, i'm trying to hack this one all morning.
