IE7 ActiveX Quick Fix

Michael Moore (no, not the documentary director!) brought this little IE 7 quick fix to my attention.

Just below the last in your HTML page, insert the following Javascript:

Open a new document in Notepad or your HTML editor, and copy & paste the following content into it:

theObjects = document.getElementsByTagName("object");
for (var i = 0; i < theObjects.length; i++)
theObjects[i].outerHTML = theObjects[i].outerHTML;

Save this file as fixit.js

Pretty cool stuff.

For more control and some additional features there is SWFObject:

SWFObject is a JavaScript file used to embed Macromedia Flash content. The script can detect the Flash plug-in in all major web browsers. Its search engine friendly & degrades gracefully.

Check out SWFObject.
