Chapter 11. Dreamweaver Behaviors > Understanding Behaviors

11.1. Understanding Behaviors

Dreamweaver Behaviors are powerful prepackaged JavaScript programs that let you add interactivity to your Web pages with ease, even if you don't know the first thing about JavaScript. By adding behaviors, you can make your Web pages do things like:

  • Make layers appear and disappear (see Chapter 12).

  • Require visitors to fill out certain fields in a form (Chapter 10). For example, when you want to make sure an email address or name is entered before the visitor submits the form.

  • Open a new browser window to a specified size, with or without scroll bars, status bar, location bar, and other Web browser "chrome."

  • Let your visitors navigate a Web site using a pop-up menu.

  • Give feedback to the visitor in a dialog box or in the browser's status bar.
