Heres the problem as an .swf you have to embed the flash as an object which takes some time and space. So in the place of your image you would need something that looks like this:

<object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,29,0" width="150" height="150">
<param name="movie" value="/images/flash/picture.swf">
<param name="quality" value="high">
<embed src="/images/flash/picture.swf" quality="high" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="150" height="150"></embed></object>

I try your method before, I add the appropriate code in the shopdisplaycategories.asp, but failed, because I need to add many as many SWF file in to database, then, this page don't know what swf name need to call.

Can you explain more about my problem, I need to solve my problem immediately.

cheers

Here's something you could try. If I am understanding this correctly, you want to replace an item JPG with a SWF file for each item in your database. Correct? If yes, here's something that in theory should work. However, it will require you to know ASP very well.

1. Create all of your SWF files to be the same size. This is important since the VPASP database doesn't take size into consideration and EMBEDDING the flash needs to have file size descriptions to work for sure.

2. Upload your SWF's to the same directory where the JPG's would have been.

3. In the item image category, give it a JPG name equivalent to the SWF filename. So if you have SHIRT1001.SWF, the filename entered in the admin section would be SHIRT1001.JPG.

4. Find the section in the ASP pages where the image is generated. This is probably in a SUB function. Comment out the line where this occurs.

5. Parse the variable name from FILENAME.JPG into FILENAME and JPG. The important thing is to DIM a new variable ("NEWVARIABLE") and get the FILENAME in it without the extension. From the example above, the variable would hold SHIRT1001

6. Use the EMBED code suggested earlier. You may need to jump out of ASP to do this effectively.

7. Within the EMBED section you will need to find the location that asks for the filename. Jump back into ASP for the filename and jump back out. It would look something like this:

<param name="movie" value="/images/flash/]<% = NEWVARIABLE %>.swf">
<param name="quality" value="high">
<embed src="/images/flash/<% = NEWVARIABLE %>.swf" quality="high" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="150" height="150"></embed>

8. Jump back into ASP to allow the rest of the page to work like normal.

Theoretically this should work. Just be careful that you save all of the original code just in case something bad happens while coding. Commented code is easily reversed.


Another option is to put this type of setup into a new function and then call the function from the area of the code that uses the JPG. That's a little more tricky, but probably doable.
