Inserting Flash content

You can use Dreamweaver to insert Flash content in your pages.

To insert a SWF file (Flash content):

  1. In the Design view of the Document window, place the insertion point where you want to insert the content, then do one of the following:
    • In the Common category of the Insert bar, select Media and click the Insert Flash icon.This is a picture of the feature being described.
    • Select Insert > Media > Flash.
  2. In the dialog box that appears, select a Flash file (.swf).

    A Flash placeholder appears in the Document window (unlike Flash button and text objects). For information about setting properties for a Flash SWF file, see Setting Flash and Shockwave movie properties.

To preview Flash content in the Document window:

  1. In the Document window, click the Flash placeholder to select the Flash content you want to preview.
  2. In the Property inspector, click the Play button. Click Stop to end the preview. You can also preview the Flash content in a browser by pressing F12.
