Powerful development and design tools require thorough and authoritative technical advice and documentation. When it comes to Macromedia Dreamweaver, no one is more authoritative than Macromedia’s own development and writing teams. Now their official documentation is available to you in printed book form. As you work, keep this guide by your side for ready access to valuable information on using Dreamweaver. We’ve designed it so that it’s easy to annotate as you progress. 

This book describes how to customize the Dreamweaver user interface to suit your working style, and to build Dreamweaver extensions to add functionality. It explains how each type of extension works and describes the application programming interface (API) functions that Dreamweaver calls in order to implement its various objects, menus, floating panels, server behaviors, and so on, providing a simple example for each type. The book also describes the utility API and the JavaScript API, which let you perform various supporting tasks when developing Dreamweaver extensions.

In Developing Extensions for Macromedia Dreamweaver 8, learn how to:
•    Create an extension that streamlines site development by providing a new Property inspector, panel, or dialog box to perform tasks Dreamweaver users encounter frequently
•    Rearrange the objects in the Insert bar, create new tabs to reorganize the objects, and add new objects
•    Change the names of menu items, add new commands to menus, and remove existing commands from menus
•    Change browser profiles and create new ones
