    Browser/Res/Flash detection.

    Ok, I'm having trouble trying to make a scirpt that will detect a users browser, resoloution and flash plugin (if applicable).

    I can do the res detection but I've no idea how to detect the browser and flash plugin.

    How it has to work is ..
    Code:
    noComply = 0
    BrowserVer = 
    Res = screen.Width+'x'+screen.Height
    HasFlash =
    
    if (BrowserVer < 5){
     noComply ++
    }
    
    if (Res == '640x480'){
     noComply ++
    }
    
    if (HasFlash !== true){
     noComply ++ 
    }
    
    if (noComply > 0){
     location = 'errorReport.asp?n='+noComply;
    }
    
    // User has to be here if they meet requirements
    
    if (Res == '800x600'){
    location == 'core?l=res2';
    }
    I just need to know how to find the browser version and the flash plugin.
    Omnis mico antequam dominus Spookster!

    Never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never just do a search for Netscape. If you do, you block out countless browsers from your site.

    Code:
    if (document.layers) // Works for Netscape 4.x
    
    if (navigator.userAgent.indexOf('Gecko') != -1)
    // Searches for Netscape 6+ and all other related browsers that are essentially identical to Netscape 6+
    Microsoft does that crap! They allow Netscape 6 & 7, but block out Mozilla, Phoenix, and others!
