Building the insert page in one operation
You can add the basic building blocks of an insert page in a single operation using the Record Insertion Form application object. The application object adds both an HTML form and an Insert Record server behavior to the page.
You can also add the building blocks separately using the form tools and the Server Behaviors panel. For more information, see Building an insert page block by block.
After placing the building blocks on the page, you can use the Dreamweaver design tools to customize the form, or the Server Behaviors panel to edit the Insert Record server behavior.
To build the insert page with the Record Insertion Form application object:
- Open the page in Design view, and select Insert > Application Objects > Insert Record > Record Insertion Form Wizard.
The Insert Record Insertion Form dialog box appears.
- Complete the dialog box.
For instructions, see Setting the Record Insertion Form dialog box options.
- Click OK.
Dreamweaver adds both an HTML form and an Insert Record server behavior to your page. The form objects are laid out in a basic table, which you can customize using the Dreamweaver page design tools. (Make sure all the form objects remain within the forms boundaries.)
To edit the server behavior, open the Server Behaviors panel (Window > Server Behaviors) and double-click the Insert Record behavior.
