Chapter 23. Further Dynamic Techniques > Master-Detail Page Sets

Master-Detail Page Sets

Building a set of master-detail pages is a fairly common dynamic task. Think of a catalog page on which all products are listed and each product entry contains a link to a page of detailed information about that product. Dreamweaver gives you two ways to build master-detail sets: manual and automatic. The manual method isn’t all that manual (it doesn’t involve any hand-coding), and it gives you greater control over your layout and setup. But the automatic method is (as its name suggests!) much quicker. We’ll look at both methods here.

Master-Detail Sets the Manual Way

In the manual method of building master-detail pages, you create the master and detail page, create recordsets, and link the two pages using dynamic hyperlinks. The details of this procedure are described next.
