Chapter 8. Setting Up Optional and Repea... > Designating Repeating Regions

Designating Repeating Regions

So far, you've seen how editable regions allow content to be changed within a marked area and how optional regions are used to insert or remove a block of HTML. Dreamweaver's third type of template region is the repeating region. As the name implies, content within a repeating region can be duplicated, much like the repeat region server behavior copies and displays a marked area for each item in a recordset. The difference between the two comes down to design-time versus run-time. Template repeating regions are managed by the designer at design-time—whether in Dreamweaver or Contribute—whereas the repeat region server behavior is handled by the application server at run-time.

When a repeating region is viewed in a child page at design-time, Dreamweaver displays a mini user interface above the marked area, in addition to the familiar border and tab. The mini user interface has four buttons: Add, Remove, Up, and Down. This interface is visible only at design-time and does not display in the browser.
