New PHP Show If Column extension for Dreamweaver

We have released PHP Show If Column 1.0.2.

Native Show Region server behaviors allow you to show or hide content on the page based on whether a recordset is empty or not empty. But if you need to show or hide a content based on the value of a recordset column, you have to code it by hand. Not any more, thanks to our new extension!

PHP Show If Column is available on this site, of course, but also through the new Adobe Exchange panel for CS6.

Keep It Simple Stupid!

While building myDWE's next tutorial — about the use of myDWE's next free Dreamweaver extension —, I had a hard time trying to use Spry's Grow effect to simulate a zoom-in feature, and get perfect images in the end.

What I spent an awful lot of time trying was:

  • Get all images, get their dimensions and shrink them to a percentage;
  • Apply on each of them a Grow effect from this percentage to their original size, with the toggle option.

But in the end, the final images were never the right size, and looked blurred and horrible. To boot, results were not consistent among browsers.

As usual (the KISS principle: Keep It Simple Stupid!), the solution was dead simple:

  • Get all images and apply them a Grow effect from 100% to a percentage, with the toggle option.

And that was it. Spry effects did the rest. Here's the simple bit of code you need:

<script src="../../SpryAssets/SpryDOMUtils.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<script src="../../SpryAssets/SpryEffects.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
    var growEffect = new Spry.Effect.Grow(n, {duration: 500, from: '100%', to: '50%', toggle: true, growCenter: false});
    Spry.Utils.addEventListener(n, "click", function(){
    }, false);

How to animate a static page with Spry

Learn how to use a HTML data set using code within the actual page and to make use of the Spry.$$() element selector and Spry.Utils functions.
This tutorial demonstrates the technique used to animate the Offers div on the My Dreamweaver Extensions homepage. Using progressive enhancement and unobstrusive JavaScript so that we keep Search Engines and users without JavaScript happy, we use the Spry framework to easily hide all the pieces of the Offers section and display them one at a time with a nice fading effect.

A bit of Spry animation!

We have started the progressive enhancement of the Homepage, with a bit of Spry magic! Building upon the static code, we use a HTML Data Set and a bit of handcoding to get rid of the vertical scroll bar of the Offers box and fade in and out each of the offers. The first tutorial is on its way to explain the JavaScript and Spry code. Stay tuned!

Welcome to!

I know. This site is rather naked!
Do not worry, will soon get a beautiful green robe, but we wanted to open the site as soon as possible since it's been delayed for far too long now.

On, you will find a wealth of Dreamweaver and Dreamweaver Extensions resources:

  • Our own free and commercial extensions
  • Reviews of third party extensions, mainly free ones, but also a few of very helpful commercial extensions
  • Tutorials to use Dreamweaver extensions and to learn how to code with Dreamweaver, and even tutorials to learn how to make your own extensions for Dreamweaver
  • News about what is going on on planet Dreamweaver

This site is being build and maintained with Dreamweaver, and we use a lot of extensions with the same spirit that drives Dreamweaver: to build good clean code, and to build it faster. We will share why Dreamweaver is such a valuable tool and how to use it to the next level: good coding for the Web. We will see what is good about Dreamweaver and what could be better – and how to overcome these shortcomings and build a better and faster Web.

Happy browsing!
