22.6. Master Detail Page Set

A common task when building a database-driven Web site is providing your visitors with both an overview and detailed view of information. Usually, it takes two separate Web pages to do the job: one that lists limited information about all records in a recordset, and one which provides links to a page with detailed information about a single record. Dreamweaver calls these master and detail pages, and provides a tool for making quick work of this task (see Figure 22-15).

Figure 22-15. An example of Dreamweaver's Master Detail Page Set. The screen on the left represents a master page—a list of items retrieved from a recordset. Clicking a link on this page opens a detail page (right), which displays the details of a single record.
