ControllerVisible Property


set the controllerVisible of <movie> to <boolean> Applies to movies


The controllerVisible property allows the developer to attach a controller to any movie style. A value of true means that the controller is visible. A value of false means that the controller is not visible. The default value of controllerVisible is false.


You cannot modify a movie's style while controllerVisible is set to true. You also cannot set controllerVisible while the movie's style is set to control. If you change the size of the movie's rectangle after setting the controllerVisible to true, the controller will take up part of the new rectangle instead of attaching to the movie object. This means that if you then set controllerVisible to false after resizing the rectangle, you will lose that part of the rectangle that was occupied by the controller. The controllerVisible property cannot be modified from either the toolbar or the info dialog box; it is available through scripting only.
