Testing a Project

A project is a collection of files that constitute a complex project. For example, you can create a Flash project that contains 5 Flash documents, with interactive buttons on the pages to call the other pages. If all of the .fla files are located within the same project, it's an easy matter to test the entire project. You must first select one of the files as the main file, and then simply click the Test button. Flash will automatically publish all of the Flash documents in the project, display the main file, and then allows you to test its operation. It's that simple.

Test a Project

Click the Window menu, and then click Projects.

If the project you want to test is not open, click the Open link in the Project panel, and then select the appropriate file.

Click Open.

IMPORTANT Since testing a project involves moving from Flash movie to Flash movie, your published documents will have to have interactive buttons linked to all the other pages within the project, or the test will not work.

See Chapter 4, “Working with Groups, Symbols, and Instances” on page 123 for more information on adding button objects to a Flash movie.


Right-click your mouse on one of the .fla or .html files in the project.

Click Make Default Document from the available options.

Click the Test Project button.
