Eolas Patch

Description:
As a result of the Eolas vs Internet Explorer court case Microsoft have been forced to rethink the way the browser works with rich media content. When embedding Flash, QuickTime or Java into web pages, for example, Internet Explorer 6 or above will now not allow user interaction until the user clicks on the element to 'activate' it.
A standard QuickTime movie, for example, will cause the browser to display the alert shown in figure 1.1


Figure 1.1 - Internet Explorer's ActiveX warning.


The Eolas Patch, when applied to a page containing multimedia content will update the existing Freeway generated HTML so that these files play seamlessly again without these annoying popups.


Adding the action to your web pages:
To add this action to your Freeway pages follow either the 'Applying Page Actions' guidelines for individual pages or the 'Applying Folder Actions' guidelines to apply the action to a whole folder of pages.


Using the action:
Once applied to your page or folder (see the 'Adding the action to your web pages' section above) the action will silently patch all areas of the HTML that need updating.
There are no interface controls in the actions palette to set - the action just works!


Requirements:
To add this actions functionality to your web pages you will need either;

  • FreewayPro 3.5 or higher including FreewayPro 4 and Freeway Express 4

Download:
