I have a few small swf files that I have inserted into a webpage. When I preview the page, I can see the files. However I would rather not see them all at the same time. I am trying to set up a button link to make them start. I created 3 flash buttons and linked them to the swf files - and it works, but as a separate entity, not as an item on the page. It must be something pretty simple that I am missing. Any suggestions? I'm using Dreamweaver MX2004 Thanks in advance

Welcome aboard MrWrite,
I created 3 flash buttons and linked them to the swf files
So you have three separate .swf's acting a buttons for the playable .swf's (totaling 6 .swfs, 3 buttons, 3 playable ones), or are these buttons actually inside the .swf's?
If I follow, the way to do this would be to have the "start" button within each playable .swf. It doesn't even need to be a button, really, a simple transparent box the size of the stage, converted to a button symbol, that executes play() when clicked. This keeps the entire functioning of the .swf contained within itself.
