Inserting Flash Button and Flash Text

Inserting Flash Button

Dreamweaver comes with a variety of button styles (including navigation tabs, playback controls, and ecommerce buttons), or you can create your own.

  1. From the Dreamweaver menu bar, select: Insert > Interactive Images > Flash Button.
  2. The Insert Flash Button window will open. Select a button style, text, font, font size, link, target window, background color, and file name. The preview window displays each button as you select it.


  3. Click Apply to view the button on your page. Make desired changes, clicking Apply to see the results.
  4. Click OK to add the Flash button to your page.

The Flash button you inserted has a rollover effect. Now you'll play the button to see how it looks.

  1. In the Flash button Property inspector, click Play to play the button in the document.
  2. In the Document window, roll the pointer over the object to see the Flash button's rollover effect.
  3. To stop playing the object, click Stop in the Property inspector.

Inserting Flash Text

You can create editable vector graphics directly in Dreamweaver with the Macromedia Flash Text feature. In the Document window, place the insertion point where you want the object to appear.

  1. From the Dreamweaver menu bar, select: Insert > Interactive Images > Flash Text.
  2. The Insert Flash Text window will open. Select font, font attributes and colors; type desired text in the available box; fill in link, target, background color, and save as fields.


  3. Click Apply to view the text on your page. Make desired changes, clicking Apply to see the results.
  4. Click OK to add the Flash text to your page.
  5. Preview the page in your browser to see it in action.
