Chapter 9. Server Behaviors > Server Behavior API

Server Behavior API

This part of the API is complex and is distinctly different from anything you’ve seen before—to accommodate the different languages and structures the server markup can have. The good news is that unless you want to do something fancy, you don’t have to code your server behavior extensions by hand. Dreamweaver provides a special interface, the Server Behavior Builder (SBB), to do the coding for you. In this chapter, we’ll take a look at working with the builder; then we’ll see what’s really going on “under the hood” for those occasions when you want to tweak the coding yourself.

note

Standard extensions such as objects and commands can be used to insert server markup. The advantage of coding your custom markup snippets as server behaviors is that you take advantage of the Dreamweaver management system. For instance, your behavior will appear as a menu choice only if the user is working with the appropriate server model and language (for example, ASP/JavaScript).
