Flash in Visual Studio 2005. How?

Hi,

Can someone tell me how to get a flash file to play in Visual Basic .net?
(VS2005)

Tried adding a com component to the toolbox (as it worked in VS2003), but
this produces an error in 2005 (seems to be a know bug with VS2005)

All I want to do is PLAY flash files - and maybe control them (ie. play,
pause, send vars to/from)

Can someone help me or guide me as to how to do this? I'm happy to pay for a
component if there is one out there!

(I've come from a macromedia Director background, and adding a flash file as
an asset is so easy, and can add a lot to an application)
Any help greatly appreciated,
Tim Dixon.

Hi Tim,

There are several designers that help you generate the correct client-side
content to run Flash. Here's one that's free:

Ken, Thanks for the link - just what I needed!

Does anyone know of anything like this for winforms as well? (rather than
asp?)
TIA
Tim.

Flash comes with an ActiveX player component. Search your references for
something like "ShockwaveFlash Object". Search the Flash Support website
for "scripting" & "ActiveX". Be warned, the ActiveX control is very
sparsely documented.
