Chapter 12. Behaviors and JavaScript

Dreamweaver provides numerous preprogrammed behaviors that add interactivity, check the browser version, control window layout, and perform animation. If Dreamweaver doesn't have a built-in behavior for the job, you can download more behaviors from the Dreamweaver Exchange or write your own in JavaScript (JS).

For more on JavaScript, see the O'Reilly JavaScript Reference in the Reference panel (Window Reference) or see JavaScript: The Definitive Guide by David Flanagan (O'Reilly). Note that JavaScript (which was called LiveScript until Netscape renamed it) has no direct relation to Sun's Java language; people in this industry just drink too much coffee. Macromedia Flash's ActionScript language uses the same syntax as JavaScript and implements some identical object classes (both are derivatives of the ECMA-262 standard).
