DreamWeaver Toolbar: Replaceable Flash Media

This module creates a place holder on the page where a flash file can be displayed.


  • Developers may set a default flash file the way that they would normally insert flash into an HTML page during the design phase.
  • Website owners can replace the current flash file any number of times - and on any page.  (i.e.: each page of the site can have a different flash file on display)
  • The website owner may declare a piece of flash media as sitewide, thus forcing it to appear on every page where this module is present.


  1. Open an HTML file in DreamWeaver.
  2. Place the cursor at the insertion point (in code view or design view).
  3. Go to the Zencil toolbar and click the flash placeholder icon.


Website owners are advised to order flash media from their developer via the "request support" button at the bottom of the page.  Information about the "request support" button is available here.

Code Sample

  • <zencil> and <zencil:hidden> may be used interchangeably.
  • The default file must be uploaded along with your htmls, etc.
<zencil:hidden module="flasharea" name="flashpiece1" default="flash_place_holder.swf">
