Where Does He Get Those Fabulous Toys?

A good 90% of creating a user interface for a Dreamweaver extension is made up of form elements: text fields, drop-down lists, radio buttons, and check boxes, among a few others. Interspersed in the interfaces are occasional graphics, such as the folder icon typically used to open the Select File dialog box. Unless you’re building a completely different interface and avoiding all visual references to the Dreamweaver standard, it’s less jarring to the user to retain the visual clues that are seen throughout the program. So should you go around taking snapshots of the standard Dreamweaver user interfaces and cut’em up in a graphics program? Put down that cropping tool immediately! The kind folks from Dreamweaverland have done the work for you;you just need to know where to look. Most of the standard images—the folder icon, lightning bolt, and up and down arrows—are stored in the Dreamweaver MX 2004\Configuration\Shared folder in one of two folders: Shared\MM\Images or Shared\UltraDev\Images. Still can’t find the image you know you’ve seen? Create a new site and point to the Dreamweaver MX 2004\Configuration folder as the local site root. Then, check the Images category of the Assets panel. All the graphics used throughout Dreamweaver (even some hidden Easter eggs) are there.
