SharePoint 2007 Flash Animation Web Part

Screenshot - flashWebPart.jpg

Introduction

I've seen that many people are using HTML content web part for displaying Flash animation. I don't recommend this approach for many reasons, one of them being you won't tell your client to edit HTML code for changing Flash properties; so it is better to have a dedicated web part for rendering Flash animation.

Software Requirements

  • Microsoft SharePoint 2007 installed (With Site Collection created on port:80)
  • SharePoint Services 3.0 Extensions for Visual Studio 2005 installed

Using the code

To apply the code, you will need to create a new SharePoint Webpart Project then overrides the web part class file:

using System;
using System.ComponentModel;
using System.Runtime.InteropServices;
using System.Web.UI;
using System.Web.UI.WebControls.WebParts;
using System.Web.UI.WebControls;
using System.Xml.Serialization;
using Microsoft.SharePoint;
using Microsoft.SharePoint.WebControls;
using Microsoft.SharePoint.WebPartPages;
using Microsoft.SharePoint.Utilities;
using System.Web.UI.HtmlControls;
namespace FlashWebPart
{
    [Guid("f04fa49d-1342-4c7d-904a-c43ebc942f39")]
    [XmlRoot(Namespace = "FlashWebPart")]
    public class FlashWebPart : Microsoft.SharePoint.WebPartPages.WebPart
    {
        public FlashWebPart()
        {
            this.ExportMode = WebPartExportMode.All;
        }
        protected int flashWidth = 400;
        protected int flashHeight = 300;
        protected string flashUrl = "";
                
        [Browsable(true), 
        Category("Flash Info"),
        DefaultValue(400),
        WebPartStorage(Storage.Shared),
        FriendlyName("Width"), 
        Description("Width of the web part")]
        public int FlashWidth
        {
            get
            {
                return this.flashWidth;
            }
            set
            {
                this.flashWidth = value;
            }
        }
        [Browsable(true),
       Category("Flash Info"),
        DefaultValue(300),
        WebPartStorage(Storage.Shared),
        FriendlyName("Height"), 
        Description("Height of the web part")]
        public int FlashHeight
        {
            get
            {
                return this.flashHeight;
            }
            set
            {
                this.flashHeight = value;
            }
        }
        [Browsable(true),
        Category("Flash Info"),
        DefaultValue(""),
        WebPartStorage(Storage.Shared),
        FriendlyName("URL"), 
        Description("URL of the web part")]
        public string FlashURL
        {
            get
            {
                return this.flashUrl;
            }
            set
            {
                this.flashUrl = value;
            }
        }
        protected override void Render(HtmlTextWriter writer)
        {
            string outHTML = 
            "<OBJECT classid=
            \"clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000\" " +

            writer.Write(outHTML);
        }
