How to achieve effect

Hi everyone,

There's a "Send an Emal" button on the following site:

http://www.eventsbyolivia.com.au/

When this button is clicked, it dims the background and has a form that "animates" on. Can someone tell me how this was done, ie. whether it's possible to do in Dreamweaver CS4 or was it done using javascript etc?

Appreciate any advice.

actually that comes up with an error for me.
its similar to the lightbox software:
http://www.huddletogether.com/projects/lightbox2/
click on the images to see - its a free download
or this one that uses jquery, again its free:
http://leandrovieira.com/projects/jquery/lightbox/
and instead of an image you can use an html page
what I do use is an add-on from www.dmxzone.com for dreamweaver for popups

the question is about the popup which is javasctipt and is not flash
(yes the button is a flash button but this is not the question)
actually the javascript that site  uses for the shadow is from here:
http://www.shadowbox-js.com/
(its failing to load probably due to being 'downunder')

Nice catch on the Flash calling the js, chilternpc.  Although it's a terrible waste of resources to do that...
