How to add a swf file to announcement web part on home page. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I need to add a flash (.swf) file to an announcement under the announcements web part on my intranet home page.  It showed a red X when I attempted it before.  The other way I attempted nothing showed up.

    Does anybody know how to do this?

  • Hey,

    Insert below code to Content Editor Web Part or directly to the page below Announcement using SPD

    <object width="200" height="200">
      <param name="movie" value="yourflash.swf">
      <embed src="yourflash.swf" width="200" height="400"></embed>
    </object>
    

    You can modify Width and Height as per your requirement

    Hope this helps

  • If you want to add SWF into a column and then display it with Announcement web part them its not possible OOTB, you have to write / find for a Java Script which will call the file to run after page loads.

  • Thanks for reply.

    I went to our test page to add the same flash file to a Content Editor Web Part.  It worked fine with no troubles.

    So with that said, is it impossible to add a flash file (.swf) to a list view?  My "Announcements" web part is a list view that allows the upload of hyperlinks, and images, but won't allow me to add a flash file.  Is this assumption correct?
