Q&A

Q1: Will the Netscape JavaScript model ever match that of Internet Explorer?
A1: I wouldn't count on it. The object model between Netscape and Internet Explorer is very different. If you can target a specific application to Internet Explorer 5 or better, you'll gain access to many different events unavailable in Netscape. I recommend keeping things as compatible as possible, however.
Q2:The JavaScript action I want isn't available. How can I add it?
A2: You can check the Macromedia Web site for additional actions, as you'll see in Day 5, “Reusable Components and UltraDev Packages.” Alternatively, if you're a programmer, you can read the “Extending Dreamweaver” documentation that is supplied in the UltraDev help system.
Q3:Can I cut and paste DHTML into UltraDev and edit it?
A3: No. You certainly can paste new JavaScript code into the UltraDev environment, but it isn't going to be editable using the timeline or any of the other tools.
Q4:Which should I use, a plug-in or DHTML?
A4: That's up to you. Do you want to rely on the user having a plug-in, or him having a 4.0 or greater browser? You might want to survey your target audience before making a decision.
