Navigation bar design tasks

Navigation bar design tasks

When creating a custom navigation bar, begin by creating its visual representation using the Dreamweaver page-design tools. You don’t have to create a link for the text string or image, Dreamweaver will create one for you.

The page you create the navigation bar for must contain a recordset to navigate. For more information, see Understanding recordsets.

A simple recordset navigation bar might look like this, with link buttons created out of images, or other content elements:

After you have added a recordset to a page, and have created a navigation bar, you must apply individual server behaviors to each navigation element. For example, a typical recordset navigation bar contains representations of the following links matched to the appropriate behavior:
