Jquery.animate div with swf ( the swf blinks )

Reported by: dustinm Owned by:
Priority: major Milestone: 1.4
Component: effects Version: 1.3.2

The Setup: I have setup a basic html page using swfObject 2.0 to embed a flash piece in a container wrapped with a wrapper div. Then using Jquery I intend on animating the height of the wrapper div allowing the flash file to stretch within the div. The animate code below works as expected in IE6 but not in FireFox 3. I have tried this using MooTools animation and it works cross browser. So I do not believe this to be a plugin|rendering issue for Firefox. It has to lie within the code set of Jquery.

The Problem: The flash file looks to be reloading and starts blinking a few times during the animation cycle.

The Code:

<div id="swfWrapper">

<div id="swfContainer">

This div get replaced with a swf using swfObject 2



$(document).ready(function() {

Neither of these options work in FireFox 3.

$("#swfWrapper").animate( {height:1000}, 1000); $("#swfWrapper").effect("size", {to:{height:1000}}, 1000);

This problem also occurs when you use a direct embed method ( object & embed tags ) for the swf.

This might be a duplicate of #4872.

Generally, jQuery breaks flash when animate()ing on firefox. And no fix yet even though it's so simple to mend.
