Downloading and installing third-party behaviors

One of the most useful features of Dreamweaver is its extensibility--that is, it offers users who are proficient in JavaScript the opportunity to write JavaScript code that extends the capabilities of Dreamweaver.

To download and install new behaviors from the Macromedia Exchange website:

  1. Open the Behaviors panel and select Get More Behaviors from the Actions (+) pop-up menu.

    Your primary browser opens, and the Exchange site appears. (You must be connected to the web to download behaviors.)

  2. Browse or search for packages.
  3. Download and install the extension package you want.
