An Introduction to Dreamweaver 4 - Not so long ago, Web site building tools fell naturally into three different camps: text-only HTML-editors, editors that combined a graphic WYSIWIG view with a code view, and those there were purely graphic, for users who shied away from HTML. Each type of site editor had its own audience, die-hard programmers, part-time Webmasters, or graphic designers. Dreamweaver 4 may be the first fully-featured editor to cater to each of those groups.

Building DHTML Drop Down Menus with Dreamweaver MX 2004 - There are several different ways a DHTML Drop Down Menus can be deployed. Some scripts create the submenus on-the-fly i.e. the submenus are not present on the page as HTML elements but are usually written by "document.write" statements. Since search engines cannot read javascripts, such submenus are not spidered by search engines and screen readers. The solution is to build your own DHTML Menus making sure that the submenus are proper HTML elements within your document and they are only shown and hidden by main menu triggers. Dreamweaver MX 2004 provides us with the necessary tools to build such menus.

This article shows you the step-by-step process of setting up a data source name for your database.

XML and Dreamweaver - While certainly not a full-blown XML editor, Dreamweaver MX 2004 includes a fair amount of support for XML. This latest release eases the web designers' transition into the area of structured markup. Many web designers using Dreamweaver rarely view their code, preferring instead to stay within the safe confines of the Dreamweaver Design View. Other designers frequent Code View often while writing JavaScript, CSS or simply because they are well-versed in HTML and prefer to write code as opposed to the WYSIWIG, drag-and-drop methods. Viewing or writing XML files will force the designer into Code View and may provide for all the functionality that's needed for web designers working with XML. This will prevent the need for the web designer to open additional software such as XML Spy, which is an excellent tool but provides for more than what is needed.

Getting Dreamweaver MX Up to Speed with PHP - When Macromedia released Dreamweaver MX, many web developers were excited to see built-in support for PHP and MySQL. Earlier versions of the product supported ASP, ColdFusion, and JSP, but MX finally offered a simple tool for rapidly building database-driven sites using two widely-supported open source technologies: PHP and MySQL.

XML Overview - Whether your team contracted a project that requires the use of XML or you simply want to play with the technology, this article introduces you to the basics of XML. Many companies have started using XML as a way to exchange data. Governments have standardized on XML as a data-exchange format, and web developers are being required to learn how to work with XML. So it really is in your interest to learn about XML and enhance your skill set. Plus, the soon-to-be-released Macromedia Dreamweaver 8 has native support for creating and editing XML and XSL documents and it allows you to perform client-side and server-side XSL transformations. In this article, I will introduce you to XML, so you are ready to hit the ground running when Dreamweaver 8 ships. I will start by explaining the technology, some of its advantages and disadvantages, and give you examples of where and how to use it.

XSL Overview - As you might recall from my previous article, XML Overview, XML was designed to carry data. However, the majority of web applications are designed with the end user in mind. Therefore, information should be presented in a readable format. This is where XSL comes in: it takes the data from the XML trees and processes it to produce intelligible output. Of course, you can use Perl, Java, or PHP to work your way around transforming XML documents. However, as XML becomes more and more mainstream, you'll have to get a good grip of XSL and its functioning principles.

Consuming a Remote RSS 1.0 Feed with Dreamweaver 8
Macromedia Dreamweaver 8 is a major breakthrough for XML development, just as Dreamweaver MX 2004 was for CSS.

I will teach you how to perform both client-side and server-side transformations, and help you understand the difference between the two.

Dreamweaver MX : Supporting the PHP and ASP.NET Platforms - This week's DevNet content launch focuses on how to use Macromedia Dreamweaver MX on the PHP and ASP.NET application server platforms. While Macromedia ColdFusion MX is arguably the easiest application server platform to learn, and is best-suited for Rapid Application Development, Dreamweaver MX also "plays nicely" with other application server platforms. Macromedia recognizes the explosive growth of PHP and the fact that ASP.NET is popular with the Microsoft developer base.

Using the ASP.NET Calendar Control in Dreamweaver MX - ASP.NET's set of controls are by far some of the most useful objects ever to come pre-packaged with any development environment. The data driven controls such as the DataGrid, Repeater, and DataList give you very powerful control over how you output your data—all with minimal (if any) effort on your part. While others, such as the ListBox, serve to automate menial tasks such as filling drop down lists with data. ASP.NET also comes with a pair of "Rich Controls" that give you the framework to build complete applications with limited effort. These include...

Code editing with Dreamweaver MX - Macromedia has always understood that developers spend some amount of time developing code by hand. Its tools respect the way code is created and incorporate technologies such as roundtrip editing—the ability to move back and forth between a text-based HTML editor and Macromedia Dreamweaver MX without dramatically impacting the content or structure of the source document—to help workflow.

A Scripter's View of Dreamweaver UltraDev 1.0 - For a while now, Macromedia's Dreamweaver has been the tool of choice for a large number of web page designers. Unfortunately, those of us who spend most of our time writing asp (or other types of server side code) have always had to look elsewhere. While Dreamweaver has always done an exceptional job at editing HTML, it has always fallen quite a bit short on the level of functionality a script developer has come to expect from competing tools like Microsoft's Visual Interdev (VID) and even some of the more advanced text editors like Allaire's Homesite. This, I believe, is precisely why Macromedia has released their new Dreamweaver UltraDev package.

Macromedia Gets It Right With Dreamweaver UltraDev 4.0 - About six months ago, Macromedia's Dreamweaver UltraDev 1.0 hit the streets. Overall it was an impressive tool but when it came down to working with ASP files, it fell a little short of the needs of the serious developer. With their latest release they seem to have addressed many of the concerns I raised in A Scripter's View of Dreamweaver UltraDev 1.0 and have released a product that can really compete for a place in any ASP developer's toolbox.
