I'm making a project for my own satisfaction that requires me to load an SWF (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SWF) file inside of a lightbox. I'm quite the n00b at Dreamweaver (and website making overall, for that matter), so please explain how I could do this the easiest possible way.

For my images, I'm using the 4level lightbox extension (http://www.fourlevel.com/dreamweaver/extensions/lightbox/index.htm). I would like to have the new lightbox containing the flash file to be about the same design.:confused: :-)

I see that the extension is based upon the standalone version from Lightbox and Lightbox can't show SWF files or any other media... only images. There are lightbox alternatives that can do the trick, but I don't know if there are any DW extensions for.

Out of interest why didn't you use colorbox using my example?

Sorry, I tried, but I guess I just kinda forgot about it! XD I'll definitely use it now. Thank you, again!:grin:
