i have been trying unsuccessfully to get the buttons i made on flash to work as buttons on my website.

i have tried adding behaviours to the button when it is in dreamweaver and it does not work....... all it does it play the button that i have created.

i have then tried making the layer the active element and this worked to an extent but will not work in firefox browsers.

so im in need of help to get the button that i have created working on flash to work on dreamweaver 8.

cheers

you need to set any actions for the buttons within flash

what do you want the buttons to do?

i have been playing with it some more and managed to get it so that u have to play the flash first move the mouse off it and then when i put it over the button again it comes back.... obvious this isnt the desired effect!

there is a problem with flash swf's in IE in that you have to click them first before you can use them

there is a work-around which is mentiond in this forum
