This page will generate a customized version of the PluginDetect script (v0.8.9) for you in several easy steps.

1) Select the checkboxes below to choose which PLUGINS to include in the PluginDetect script.

2) Select the checkboxes below to choose which JAVASCRIPT METHODS to include in the PluginDetect script.

[pluginName = (string) plugin name such as . The pluginName string is case insensitive.]

3) Select the checkboxes below to choose which EXTRA FEATURES to include in the PluginDetect script.

Output Script

4) Press the "Create Script" button (shown above) to generate your customized PluginDetect script.
[To reduce the size of the script, you might want to deselect either the "PluginDetect.getVersion" or "PluginDetect.isMinVersion" option before pressing the "Create Script" button. Doing so, however, will reduce the amount of info that PluginDetect reveals about any given plugin.]

5) To save the script, you can either:
a) press the "Save" button (shown above) and save in a Javascript file,      OR
b) click on the script to select it, copy the script, paste into an editor, and save as a Javascript file

6) The script is already minified. However, you may make the script slightly smaller if you use the Google Closure Compiler.

7) Place the PluginDetect script into the <head> of your webpage. For example:
<script type="text/javascript" src="PluginDetect.js"></script>

Note: Having more than one PluginDetect script in the same web page is not allowed at this time.

For example, say you generate a PluginDetect script that detects only Windows Media Player, and you name it PluginDetect_WMP.js. Then you generate another PluginDetect script that detects only Java, and you name it PluginDetect_Java.js.

Then in the <head> of a web page, you have this:
      <script type="text/javascript" src="PluginDetect_Java.js"></script>
      <script type="text/javascript" src="PluginDetect_WMP.js"></script>

This situation shown above is NOT permitted and will most likely cause problems!

The correct way to proceed would be to generate a single PluginDetect script that detects both Windows Media Player and Java, and then to place that single PluginDetect script in your web page.

8) Be sure to look at the instructions on how to use PluginDetect.

9) The unminified source code for this library is located here and here and here. The source code is only intended for developers who wish to customize the library.
