First off might I say that the dotted line is only there to allow users the choice of activating the control or not, and that it goes away if they click on it once.

Now onto the issue at hand.

Typically it is nice if you were to post what code you have, but since I have everything right at hand, adn didn't actually do more than download the appropriate files a while back when I was tryint to do the same thing I will just post the code here:

swfobject.js:

<div id="main" align="center">
</div>
		
<script type="text/javascript">
<!--
var so = new SWFObject("app.swf", "Factory", "100%", "100%", "8", "#000000");
so.setAttribute("redirectUrl","upgrade.html");
so.addVariable("flashvars", "cluster=16|area=content|label=Boa Technology|id=116|rpc=phpCoreRPC|allowCache=false");
so.useExpressInstall('expressinstall.swf');			
so.write("main");
-->
</script>
		
</body>


The code is all pretty self explanitory (especially the HTML portion of it) The javascript I would stay away from it is fairly dense and easy to totally screw up.

Hope that helps.

I think is worth mentioning the reason for this box is some company (Eolas) has a patent to embedding in IE. They sued Microsoft and won - so Microsoft had to add this box to your embeds in IE. Some more on info can be found at this site:

Usually I solve this via CSS.
Maybe this simple solution works for you also... ;)


object {
outline:none;
}

or give an "id" to the specific object

#objID{
outline:none;
}

Tested on: IE6 / IE7 / Firefox 3 / Opera 9.63 ;)
