Ok, here's how. I've found this document in my 'rarely used but might be useful someday' folder. There are more solutions to this but here's one (I believe it originally came from the Tek-Tips forum).

Make sure Flash is installed.

In Forms:
- Create an ActiveX Control Item (OCX) on your canvas.
- Right click it and select 'Insert Object...'.
- Choose Shockwave Flash Object.
- In the main menu 'Program', choose 'Import OLE Library Interfaces'
- Select ShockwaveFlash.ShockwaveFlash from the list.
- Select both the Method Package(s) and the Event Package(s). Make sure they're highlighted.
- Verify the existance of 5 new objects in your program units:
PACKAGE ShockwaveFlashObject_CONSTANTS (spec only)
PACKAGE ShockwaveFlash_IShockwa_0 (spec and body)
PACKAGE ShockwaveFlash_Shockwav_EVENTS (spec and body)
- Add the following code to your 'when-new-form-instance' trigger:
DECLARE
  var     oleobj;
BEGIN
  var:=:item('your_block.your_activex_item').interface;
  ShockwaveFlash_IShockwa_0.MOVIE(var,'path to the swf file');
END;


HTH,

1. ' your_block.your_activex_item'

1. You have created an ActiveX control on your canvas
Replace 'your_block.your_activex_item' by the real names you used.
2. Your flash movie is stored somewhere on the filesystem. Locate it and use that path.

What's hard about that?

maheer i tried to do and follwed your steps.....
but there is a problem with it.
it attaches the ocx controll at design time. but at run time its not attached. so i have to manually attach the ocx conroll by ->right clicking on the ocx container-> and then selecting the flash controll. then it runs ....
i want to avoid the run time work.
it should be attached when the form runs.
is it a bug in the form or any thing else have to be done with the form.

Open 'test.fmb' and look at the Objects that are associated with the form. Do you have these objects in your form?

Look at the properties of the 'flash' area in the test form. Do you have this in your form?
