Inserting Flash elements

Using Dreamweaver you can insert Flash elements into your documents. Flash elements let you quickly and easily build Rich Internet Applications using prebuilt elements. For more information about Flash elements, and how they can be used in your web pages, see About Flash file types.

To insert a Flash element:

  1. In the Document window, place the insertion point where you want to insert a Flash element and do one of the following:
    • In the Flash element category of the Insert bar, click the icon of the Flash element you want to insert.
    • Select Insert > Media > Flash element name.

      Dreamweaver includes one Flash element called Image Viewer.

    The Save Flash Element dialog box appears.

  2. Enter a filename for the Flash element and save it to an appropriate location within your site.
  3. Click OK.

    The Flash element placeholder appears in the document. You can modify the properties of the Flash element using the Tag and Property inspectors. For more information, see Editing Flash element attributes.

  4. Select File > Preview in Browser to preview the Flash element.
