Preparing to Work

To prepare for this project, you will need to do the following:

1.
Install the extension flash_date_picker.mxp from the Projects/07/Extensions folder on the CD. See Appendix A, “Installing Extensions,” for more information.

2.
Copy and paste the Projects/07/project_start folder from the CD to your hard drive.

3.
Define a new site using the project_start copy as your site root.

4.
Because this project mainly focuses on integrating Flash and Dreamweaver, most of the site structure has been created for you. A few items are still missing: a navigation bar common to all the pages, a date picker for the contact form that enables users to ask for a free daily pass to the park, and a few of those flashy effects that will excite visitors.

To set up the missing elements, start creating the Library Item that contains the main Flash navigation bar. Choose File > New. From the Basic Page category, choose Library Item. The New Document dialog appears providing you with several choices.

5.
Click the Create button. The New Document dialog closes, and you are provided with a new blank Library Item.

6.
Switch to Show Code and Design views or Show Code view, and remove the <meta> tag at the top of the page.

7.
Save the document as flashnav.lbi into the Library folder.
