14.3.8. How to display a Flash object in the PHP-Nuke header

To show Flash in the PHP-Nuke header, you simply have to echo the appropriate HTML code. Since the HTML code for a Flash object is something like

<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=\"350\" height=\"100\">
<param name=\"movie\" value=\"yourMovie.swf\">
<param name=quality value=high>
<embed src=\"yourMovie.swf\" quality=high pluginspage=\"http://www.macromedia.com/shockwave/download/
index.cgi?P1_Prod_Version=ShockwaveFlash\" type=\"application/x-shockwave-flash\"
width=\"350\" height=\"100\"></embed>
</object>

the PHP-Nuke header code should contain something like

echo "<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=\"350\" height=\"100\"> "
."<param name=\"movie\" value=\"yourMovie.swf\"> "
."<param name=quality value=high> "
."<embed src=\"yourMovie.swf\" quality=high pluginspage=\"http://www.macromedia.com/shockwave/download/
index.cgi?P1_Prod_Version=ShockwaveFlash\" type=\"application/x-shockwave-flash\"
width=\"350\" height=\"100\"></embed>"
."</object>";

You can put the above code in the themes/YourTheme/theme.php file, in the themeheader() function, after the call to the banners code:

if ($banners == 1) {
    include("banners.php");
}
...put Flash code ("echo") here...

The Flash object will be displayed after the banner, if you have one. See Section 20.6 on how to show Flash in a PHP-Nuke block.
