Chapter 19. Customizing Dreamweaver > Customizing Dialog Boxes

Customizing Dialog Boxes

You can customize the appearance of dialog boxes in Dreamweaver, too. These include the dialog boxes you use to insert objects and modify behaviors, as well as other commands. You can rearrange menu items, change the size of text boxes, relabel form fields, and remove unused items.

To customize a dialog box:

1.
Locate the .htm or .html file for the dialog box you want to modify. It will be found in the Configuration folder, and then in either the Commands, Behaviors, or Objects folder (Figure 19.38).

Figure 19.38. Open the file you want to modify. Its name will be similar to its menu command name.


2.
Make a backup copy of the file in a different folder. I keep a Backups folder in the Configuration folder.

3.
Open the file in Dreamweaver (Figure 19.39).

Figure 19.39. Doesn't look much like a dialog box, does it? Notice that a form border surrounds the contents of the dialog box.


4.
Use Dreamweaver's form tools to modify the file (Figure 19.40).

Figure 19.40. I modified some of the options in the Insert Table dialog box.


5.
Save the file with its original name in its original folder. Make sure you're keeping a pristine backup, too.

6.
Quit and relaunch Dreamweaver, then open the dialog box to test it (Figure 19.41).

Figure 19.41. This is what the modified dialog box looks like after you quit and restart Dreamweaver.
