I'm building a dynamic database with PHP MyAdmin, a SQL connection and Dreamweaver CC (php). I want to know how do I add a slideshow to a dynamic databse. The database will show in a link open when you click on a submenu? I'm using the Adobe Edge Animate to build the slideshow.

What does your MySQL database contain?  Actual image files (not recommended) or URLs to image files on your server?

In the following link, I demonstrate how to create a PHP dynamic photo gallery from a folder of images on your server.  No databases were required for this.  The gallery is self-populated so if a client adds or deletes images from the server, the gallery updates itself.

I still didn't made the database because I don't know what kind of 'type' is the Edge Animate slideshow should be on PHP MyAdmin. Is like video? Is VARCHAR? I know how to made the database with images but not even my teacher don't know how made this with Edge Animate.

So what I need to know, actually, is:

1- How to fill the PHP MyAdmin when you have an Edge Animate slideshow.

2- How to made the Dreamweaver accept this information when you build the page that contains the slideshow. (this will be like this: there a image in the dynamic database and when you click in it it will open the page where the slide show is and the rest of the information (just text).

You're going to need a custom solution here. Edge Animate is not going to do anything at all to a database in any way. If you generate a project using Edge Animate, it's up to you to write the code necessary to take what is generated and plug that into your site.

I good question has already been asked here however. Why do you need to use a database? Why not just use the images directly?

Also as posted here, re-iterating that the solution you're most likely looking for is choosing one of the many existing slideshow systems that are out there, free and commercial, then plugging that into your DW site. Then again, I'm not aware of what you're doing in Edge Animate or how important it is to you.

You'll have to fill in more details here. But I assure you there will be no automatic database creation and population from Edge Animate. The tool is designed to make animating on the web easy via JavaScript and Canvas, not work with databases.

Very good points.

In fact, I'm not sure you can plug PHP code directly into an Edge Animate project. 

I've never tried it; nor do I intend to.

In Flash you could connect projects to databases with ActionScript, etc... but that was totally different technology than what Edge uses.

From where I sit, Edge Animate is not the tool of choice for dynamic projects.  It's fine for static sites, or even dynamic sites for which content ported from databases is totally separate from the animation <object>.
