Chapter 7. Frames > Inserting a Navigation Bar

7.7. Inserting a Navigation Bar

One of the best reasons to use frames is to keep a navigation bar visible on the screen at all times. A navigation bar (called a "nav bar" in the trade) is a set of interactive buttons that let visitors jump to different pages or load pages into different frames. To make your life easier, Dreamweaver's Navigation Bar object makes quick work of adding complex interactive navigation bars to your frames.

Like the Rollover object described in Chapter 5, nav bar buttons use Dreamweaver Behaviors—JavaScript programs—to dynamically swap graphics files. Nav bar buttons also offer two additional styles that help your visitors know where they are in your site (see Figure 7-12).
