hehehe, i wondered if anyone would catch that.

miniflash is a tiny captionless flash player wrapper, whose only purpose is to allow you to launch a flash movie at a specific size with a custom caption in the minimalist titlebar, and then capture it with minicap and then close it.  it was written by request from someone who needs it for that purpose.

im not sure why anyone would have a use for it, but if so:
http://www.donationc...nloads/MiniFlash.zip


I did forget to mention the main reason it was made, in addition to wanting to avoid the titlebar and menu of the flash player, is that the macromedia flash player is incapable of accepting commandline arguments, which this little tool can do.

MiniFlash.exe - Mini Flash Player
Version 1.00.01 / Jan 24, 2006
mouser@donationcoder.com

 Designed to show a flash movie in a minimal window of a specific size, with
 specific title, and launched with flash variable arguements.  This last part
 is key, since the normal flash player from macromedia doesn't seem to be
 able to set variables.
//---------------------------------------------------------------------------



//---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Usage:
   MiniFlash.exe fullfilename argstring width height scalemode "title caption"

   for example:
    MiniFlash.exe "c:\myflashfile.swf" "arg1=1&arg2=2" 640 480 0 "my flash!"

   scalemode is from macromedia and should be a number as follows:
    0 - ShowAll, 1 - NoBorder, 2 - ExtractFit, 3 - NoScale, 4- Low
    5 - AutoLow, 6 - AutoHight, 7 - Hight, 8 - Best, 9 - AutoMedium
    10 - Medium

  the common scalemodes are 0 for normal display that preserves aspect ratio
  and 2 for fit to window and stretch (aspect ratio not preserved)
