    WYSIWYG in DW CS 3

    In Stef's design view of DW CS3 in the CSS Layout Part 2 of the videos in the University section the WYSIWYG was correct; however, when I tried to draw the AP Div in design view, as soon as I got the rectangle that marks the borders of the AP Div the correct size and let up on the mouse button, the box ("container") changed to a narrow box, it's border made of dashes. It did not produce anything near to WYSIWYG. When I previewed my creation in the browser it was OK. How can I get my design view to give me WYSIWYG as Stef did? Thanks, Don

    AP Div

    I believe I have been asking the wrong question. In Stef's design view of DW CS3 in the CSS Layout Part 2 of the videos in the University section the WYSIWYG was correct; however, when I tried to draw the AP Div in design view, as soon as I got the rectangle that marks the borders of the AP Div the correct size and let up on the mouse button, the box ("container") changed to a narrow box, it's border made of dashes. It did not produce anything near to WYSIWYG. When I previewed my creation in the browser it was OK. How can I get my design view to give me WYSIWYG? Thanks, Don

    AP Div

    I clicked in the div. Here is the code that DW wrote. (I typed the nmhgt I also tried to change the width but nothing happened. By the way, I gave an incomple thought in my question. I should have said that when I clicked on the dashed line to turn it blue no handles appeared as in your video.) <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd"> <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"> <head> <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" /> <title>divprob</title> <style type="text/css"> <!-- #apDiv1 { position:absolute; left:10px; top:37px; width:0px; height:22px; z-index:1; } #apDiv2 { position:absolute; left:11px; top:12px; width:137px; height:177px; z-index:1; } #apDiv3 { position:absolute; left:13px; top:18px; width:81px; height:181px; z-index:1; } #apDiv4 { position:absolute; left:40px; top:56px; width:97px; height:164px; z-index:1; } --> </style> </head> <body> <div id="apDiv4">nmhgt</div> <div id="apDiv3"></div> </body> </html> nmhgt The nmhgt is what I typed in the blue box. The blue did not appear when I copied and pasted. Stef in the video (CSS layout part 2 Dreamweaver CS 3) made two APDiv boxes using the crosshairs. My DW CS3 will not do this, I have something turned off maybe. Any help to solve this immediate problem would be appreciated. I plan on going through more of the videos on CSS and html. I have been a member of the University for awhile but am just now starting to utilize it. Don

    AP Div

    In CSS Layout Part 2 (Dreamweaver Cs3 videos) you use the tools to draw 2 apDivs. (columns). When I try this I get a column a few pixels high and across the page. When I turn the dashed line that outlines the "Div" it has no handles and when I look to right column DW does not write any CSS Thanks for any help Don
  6. I created a two column table that called the city and county from data fields in a table in MYSQL. How can I keep the table from showing duplicate data? Thanks Don
  7. I am sorry. I should have explained what was told me. The solution is to use Master/detail pages. I am now working through the help section of Dreamweaver CS3 on Master/detail pages. I have not done this yet because I have been cleaning up my tables in MySQL but you have to make a recorderset that includes both the fields from the master page and the detail page. If you have dreamweaver look in help for Master/detail and it will explain it. If you don't have Dreamweaver, reply and as I work through it I shall report. I am a beginner so remember my instructions and $1.25 or so will buy you a cup of coffee. Don
  8. I got a solution to my problem Thanks Don
  9. I hope I am writing this to the correct forum. I am a beginner at webdesign. I am using Dreamweaver CS3 to design php pages. I have created a page that calls from the MYSQL database (among other things) the names of all the products. I have created a page that calls all the descriptions of the products. By the way, the descriptions and the product names are two different columns in the same db table. My problem is that when I link the products field to the description and I view in Browser and click on a particular product the whole of the descriptions appear rather than just the description of the product in question. I am sure their is a simple fix but it sure eludes me Thanks for any help Don

    Using insertion wizard--getting syntac error

    I subscribe to killer U. and it is excellent. I found my problem. It was that I was using hyphens where it was against the law. Thanks Don
  11. I am using Dreamweaver CS3, MySQL vs 5.1.37, php 5.3.0, and xamp 1.7.2 I am using the record insertion form wizard (I am sorely lacking in code skills) After I create the insertion form, I try to use it to insert a name (example Jack) into the fh-name column of the fh-info table and I get the following message: You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near '-name) VALUES ('jacks')' at line 1 Please help Thanks Don P.S. I am sending the code that Dreamweaver generates as an attachment.

    How to transfer info back and forth between form and MySQL db

    Thanks for the info. I am working through your suggestions now. Don
  13. What I have (software) Dreamweaver CS3; Wamp; Apache 2.2.11; php 5.3.0; MySQL 5.1.36 What I know (thanks Killersite U).: ? How to create Dreamweaver html webpages including html forms ? How to create MySQL db?s and tables I plan to have these MySQL tables for my website database (these I know how to do): ? A client_info table that will include password, name, client_id, etc. ? A product_info table that will include product_id, product_image, client_id, product_description, etc. In my website I plan to have: ? A login form; ? A product input form (The client will fill this form in as products become available.) ? The product input form will contain all the fields of the product_info table plus some of the fields from the client_info table. I want the client_info fields of the form to automatically fill because of the login ? A webpage that lists all the regions that would be in the product_info table. When a region is clicked, a webpage appears that lists all the products of that region along with a clickable client name beside each product which takes the visitor to the client?s website If this were a Microsoft Access project and the webpages were reports, I could make all this happen because I know what to do behind the scenes, however here I do not know what to do, to get the info from the form to the table nor how to get the info from the tables to a page on the web and how to join the tables, how and where to construct the queries, the syntac, etc. I subscribe to Killersite U and have watched the Beginner Dreamweaver, and beginner php and mysql which have been invaluable in getting me this far but I am not there yet Can anyone advise me as to what videos to watch, literature to read, etc. to learn the above things. Thanks Don
