Lesson 15. Extending Dreamweaver > Extending Dreamweaver

Extending Dreamweaver

Dreamweaver was designed to be extensible, allowing users of the program to expand functionality by adding extensions. An extension is a piece of software you can add to Dreamweaver to enhance Dreamweaver's capabilities. There are several different kinds of extensions, from simple HTML you can add to the Objects panel and the Insert menu, to JavaScript commands you can add to the Command menu or Behaviors panel.

Advanced users who are proficient in JavaScript can create new behaviors and insert them into Dreamweaver. Even with only a basic understanding of HTML, you can create simple objects or commands for use within Dreamweaver. You can also use extensions created by others by using the Dreamweaver Extension Manager to download and install extensions from the Dreamweaver Exchange Web site. In this exercise, you will install several extensions that have been provided for you on the CD that accompanies this book.
