if you made the button in flash then you will have add the link from flash using the geturl. you can do a google search for a tutorial or I found this one in a quick search http://www.kirupa.com/developer/flash5/buttonlink.htm ('http://www.kirupa.com/developer/flash5/buttonlink.htm')

You don't need to add the link for any buttons where the link is created in flash.
Also the flash links will not effect any links you have in DW on other non-flash items.

to creative insanity

so you are saying that i don't have to create a link in flash mx within a button.

in dreamweaver can i create a link to a page within the flash made buttons?

if so can some pls help me, i tyed everything i know.

dreamweaver comes with already made flash buttons and it gives you the options to add a link to page.

but with custome made flash buttons there is no option to add a link.

i need to find away to add links to cutome made buttons.

pls pls help.

Hi redrover,

You can't link the buttons made from flash in dreamweaver.

Yes you can link flash buttons made in dreamweaver.You will get the linking option this case but not when you try to link a flash SWF.

If you want a swf to link to anything, you need to do this in your flash editor, not in DW. DW just puts the flash object on the page. You can't add/edit the link within the swf in Dreamweaver.

With the DW flash buttons you are actually editing a FLA file. So you will need to put the link into the buttons with flash itself.
