Using Dreamweaver 8.0.2 to fix Object tags to display properly in Internet Explorer 6

Fix-Dialog.png

For individuals that want to fix the Click to Run Active X in this Web page issue here's what you'll need to do if you are authoring QuickTime content. The above dialog is seen if you are using Object tags and your web page doesn't already have the JavaScript fix which makes sure that your viewers will not be prompted to click on a dialog window or tooltip which displays the Click to Run Active X in this Web Page.

Here's how the fix works. If you are using the latest version of Dreamweaver which is 8.0.2. Open your web page and you will see a dialog box like the one above. Click Yes to fix your web page. Clicking Yes installs JavaScript code into your web page. There is then a folder inserted inside your site root folder for your web site.

However, this fix mentioned above will not fix web pages authored with QuickTime content. You have to do a little more work.

Navigate to the Scripts folder inside your site root folder for your web site.

Your code should look like what is seen above // case "src": Once you do that your file is fixed and you can save your AC_ActiveX.js file and upload it to your Scripts folder on your web server.

If you want the Active X conversions fix to happen on future web pages make the same changes to the AC_ActiveX.js file in the main Dreamweaver folder and in the Dreamweaver user folder.
