    help with flash movie in dreamweaver doc.

    well, i have a flash movie(header.swf) in the header of my dreamweaver document, but the buttons that will make the flash movie scroll are not in header.swf, they are flash buttons, but they are in the left column of the dreamweaver page. I want to know if i can make the buttons control the header movie even tho it isnt apart of header.swf. Please help asap! thanx.

    from my knowledge it is very hard if not impossible to communicate from one .swf file to the code of another.
    but...maybe i'm wrong...love to hear other's responses...

    and sorry i know this doesnt really help...but i saw you had no replies so far and i thought i add what i knew....

    anyway, can you explain a little bit more of what you are trying to accomplish ? what is the event that you want the 'buttons' to do in relation to the other movie. ?

    re: swf too large

    i think the file was too big, but the code i used on the buttons are as follows:
    on (rollOver) {
    _root.mask.menu = 0;
    }

    the first button starts off at _root.mask.menu = 0; then the second button is _root.mask.menu = 1; the third is _root.mask.menu = 2; so on and so forth until the seventh button which is _root.mask.menu = 6; Each time there is a mouse over on these buttons, the respective images are shown throught the header shell.

    The code on the scrolling image is:

    onClipEvent (load) {
    interval = images._width/7;
    speed = 3;
    base_x = images._x;
    menu = 0;
    }
    onClipEvent (enterFrame) {
    to_x = base_x-interval*menu;
    images._x = (to_x-images._x)/speed+images._x;
    }

    re:header swf in dreamweaver doc.

    well, what im trying to say is that i made a header in photoshop, and imported it into flash to allow for scrolling images in the background but the buttons cannot be included in that swf. The buttons must be toward the left of the dreamweaver doc. under the flash header, but i need those buttons to controll the scrolling of the images in that flash header. Each image in the flash header is assigned to a button, so that when a mouse over action is made on each button, the respective image is shown through the header. I have gotton the header to work with the buttons inthe same file, but i need the buttons to be independent some how. Is this possibe?
