Setting Netscape Navigator plug-in properties

Setting Netscape Navigator plug-in properties

After inserting content for a Netscape Navigator plug-in (see Inserting Netscape Navigator plug-in content), use the Property inspector to set parameters for that content. To view the following properties in the Property inspector, select a Netscape Navigator plug-in object.

The Property inspector initially displays the most commonly used properties. Click the expander arrow in the lower-right corner to see all properties.

Name specifies a name to identify the plug-in for scripting. Enter a name in the unlabeled text box on the far left side of the Property inspector.

W and H specify, in pixels, the width and height allocated to the object on the page.

Src specifies the source data file. Click the folder icon to browse to a file, or enter a filename.

Plg Url specifies the URL of the pluginspace attribute. Enter the complete URL of the site where users can download the plug-in. If the user viewing your page does not have the plug-in, the browser tries to download it from this URL.

Align determines how the object is aligned on the page. For a description of each option, see Aligning an image.

V Space and H Space specify the amount of white space in pixels above, below, and on both sides of the plug-in.

Border specifies the width of the border around the plug-in.

Parameters opens a dialog box for entering additional parameters to pass to the Netscape Navigator plug-in (see Using parameters to control media objects). Many plug-ins respond to special parameters. The Flash plug-in, for example, includes parameters for bgcolor, salign, and scale.

You can also view the attributes assigned to the selected plug-in by clicking the Attribute button. You can edit, add, and delete attributes such as width and height in this dialog box.
