Flash SWF in VS2005 .net?

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,

Just converted a VB.Net 2003 app to 2005 and wham, no flash! did you ever
get an answer on this, or did you find a control that works? I've hunted
around google and found nothing that works in 2005.

TIA
Lee

Why not use a WebBrowser control and load the flash from a web page. I am
currently doing this with on pocket PC and the Compact Framework. I see no
reason that it shouldn't work on the full framework.

Hi Ron,

Actually, that's a great idea, but I actually found a component that works
with 2005. It's made by f-in-box (www.f-in-box.com). Downloaded the demo,
tried it in VB.Net 2005, it worked, so I bought it. It's got lots of nice
features as well. Worth a look if you're using lots of flash stuff in
winforms.

Cheers
Lee
