Displaying Database Records

Displaying Database Records

Displaying database records involves retrieving information stored in a database or other source of content, and rendering that information to a web page. Macromedia Dreamweaver 8 provides many methods of displaying dynamic content, and provides several built-in server behaviors that let you both enhance the presentation of dynamic content, and allow users to more easily search through and navigate information returned from a database.
