Chapter 16. Working with Visual Tools > Using Behaviors in Dreamweaver

Using Behaviors in Dreamweaver

Macromedia Dreamweaver 4 is the top-rated visual program for creating Web sites. It's available for both Windows and Macintosh. One of Dreamweaver's most appealing features is its amazing extensibility. You can write and add new JavaScript actions to the program (Dreamweaver calls them behaviors), and you can even add new custom commands to the program's menus. In fact, Dreamweaver's entire user interface is written in a combination of HTML, JavaScript, and XML files, which make it relatively easy to customize Dreamweaver to your liking.

Dreamweaver comes with a robust set of behaviors, and because it's easy for seasoned scripters to write behaviors, there are large numbers of free additional behaviors available for downloading from various Web sites. In the example below, you'll see how to use one of the stock JavaScript behaviors to validate user entries into a form.
