Today we are going to learn how to add a flash file (.swf) inside an ExtJS 4 Component.

First, let’s check out what we are going to implement:

What we are going to need for this example:

The first thing to do is to create the project structure. Unzip the SWFObject lib inside the project and also add the flash file you want to display inside the project directory as well (mine is called airballoon). I also unzipped the ExtJS 4 SDK inside the directory and created a file named index.html. When everything is ready, this is how it is going to look:

Finally, inside the index.html file we are going to add the following content:

    <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="extjs/resources/css/ext-all.css">
    <script type="text/javascript" src="extjs/ext-all.js"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript" src="swfobject/swfobject.js"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript">
        var win = Ext.widget('window', {
            title: "Flash animation inside an ExtJS 4 Component!",
            layout: 'fit',
            width: 700,
            height: 500,
            resizable: true,
            items: {
                xtype: 'flash',
                url: 'airballoon/AIRBALLOON.swf'

The flash animation will be displayed inside an ExtJS 4 Window. The class Ext.flash.Component (xtype: ‘flash’) does all the ‘magic’ we need, and in the config url you just need to add the full path to the flash file (.swf).
