DreamWeaver Flash Scripting Mystery

Mar 18, 2013 3:51 PM

Tags: #flash #dreamweaver #scripting #view_error

DW 6 cannot view photo galleries created with Lightroom if they have Flash content.  When a file with flash content (e.g. index.html0 is opened, the design view in DW says, "Sorry, this photo gallery requires that scripting be enabled on your web browser and that the Adobe Flash Player be installed.  Download the Adobe Flash Player".  I have enabled Java scriping in both Firefox and IE and both browsers recognize the presence of Flash. This problem does not occur when the index.html file has no Flash content.  However,  html files with Flash content can be previewed in Firefox but not in IE, where the same error message occurs.  All this is in a new Win 8 PC.  Any suggestions on solving this mystery will be much appreciated.

    This is usually read from between <noscript>...</noscript> tag in your HTML file. Do you see such a tag in your HTML file? It will usually be towards the end of your file.

     

    If you do have it and if this message shows up, it means JavaScript is disabled in your browser. That's what will trigger this message.

    Go to 'Live' View in Dreamweaver. From Live View options, ensure 'Disable Javascript' is not checked.

     

    And your HTML previewing has nothing to do with JavaScript. Non-JavaScript elements will load just fine on plain HTML when JS is turned off or disabled.
