Hi,

i have some SWF-files with diverent sizes (1024x576, ect.). I want
that fancybox always displays the original size of the SWFs
automaticly.

At the Moment my Code looks like this:

$("a#source").fancybox({
'type' : 'swf',
'padding' : 0,
'autoScale' : false,
'transitionIn' : 'none',
'transitionOut' : 'none'
});

But at this Point i always get one Containersize for every SWF and the
fancybox resizes the Files into this Container.

Maybe the problem is that i get the "path" from Worpdress
(CostomFields). Is it possible to get the sizeinformations from swf-
file in any way?!
Any Solutions?

Thanks

No, it`s not possible to get width/height from swf file as they are
generally scalable. 'autoScale' works only for html elements.

i can write one function with the axact height and width information
for every swf File to get it work

$("a#source1").fancybox({
'height' : '1024',
'width' : 576
});
$("a#source2").fancybox({
'height' : '800',
'width' : 600
});
and so on…
but i dont want redundant code
so there is no way to write only one function for every swf file and
size…

Actually ... there is a way. FancyBox since 1.3.1 has support of
"metadata" plugin. So, if you include http://plugins.jquery.com/project/metadata
than you can pass custom params - <a class="fancybox_swf {width:
800,height:600}" href="...">...</a>

hm…every time i want to load the jquery.metadata.js into my page, the
other Javascript-files are not working anymore

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://code.jquery.com/
jquery-1.4.2.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="<?php
bloginfo('template_directory') ?>/js/jquery.metadata.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="<?php
bloginfo('template_directory') ?>/js/fancybox/
jquery.fancybox-1.3.1.js"></script>
<script src="<?php bloginfo('template_directory') ?>/js/filterable.js"
type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8"></script>

any solution for that problem :c)
