Using Flash: Test Your Progress
Macromedia Flash – Test Your Progress
Now you have a Flash banner with graphics and animation, which reacts to button clicks. You have completed your first interactive and animated Flash document!
Let’s take a look at it in action, within a browser window:
- Return to your banner2 document and then select File > Publish Settings.
- Select the Flash tab in the Publish Settings dialog box.
- Select Access Network Only from the Local Playback Security pop-up menu. Now you can click the banner to open a web page without encountering a security warning. For more information about local playback security options, search “Local file security” (with quotes) in the Flash Help panel (F1).
Select File > Publish Preview (HTML).
The default browser on your computer opens and displays the banner. By default, the banner appears at the upper left corner of the HTML document.
- Click the banner to open the web page. A new browser window should open and display the gnome website.
- Close both browser windows and return to the Flash authoring environment.
If you are happy with your document, save your changes and proceed to Part 3 of this tutorial. You might want to change the animation or text, or modify the code as necessary.
Where to Go from Here
You now have a banner that you can export and add to a web page. In Part 3 of this tutorial, you will publish your work and take the file and add it to a Dreamweaver website.
