Creating dynamic pages
In Dreamweaver, you can define a variety of sources of dynamic content, including recordsets extracted from databases, form parameters, and JavaBeans components. To add the dynamic content to a page, simply drag it onto the page.
You can set your page to display one record or many records at a time, display more than one page of records, add special links to move from one page of records to the next (and back), and create record counters to help users keep track of the records.
- If youre unfamiliar with creating web applications in Dreamweaver, learn how to use Dreamweaver to build dynamic pages. (See Optimizing the Workspace for Visual Development and The Workflow for Dynamic Page Design.)
- Define and display dynamic content on your pages. (See Obtaining Data for Your Page, Defining Sources of Dynamic Content, Adding Dynamic Content to Web Pages, and Displaying Database Records.)
- Encapsulate application or business logic using leading-edge technologies such as Macromedia ColdFusion components and web services. (See Using ColdFusion components and Using Web Services.)
- If you need more flexibility, you can create your own server behaviors and interactive forms. (See Adding Custom Server Behaviors and Creating Forms.)
