Dreamweaver is a commonly used desktop application that creates websites for home or office users. The software has a graphical user interface that makes it easy to develop HTML files for a website. A Shockwave Flash file (SWF) is an animated format used for extended graphics on a webpage. You can set a link to an SWF file using the "Insert Link" option in Dreamweaver.
- Skill level:
Open your HTML file in Dreamweaver and place the cursor where you want the SWF link placed.
Click the "Insert" menu and select "Hyperlink." A dialogue box opens where you can configure the link on your webpage.
Enter the text the user sees in the box labelled "Text." This can be any verbiage that indicates the user is clicking a link. Enter the location of the SWF file in the box labelled "Link." Dreamweaver requires these two values to make a valid link.
Enter a target for the opened link. This is an optional parameter. Adding "_blank" as the target causes the user's browser to open a new window.
Click "OK" to add the link. The link is automatically created and displayed in your Dreamweaver workspace. You can test the link by clicking it in your workspace. The SWF file opens and plays.
