Click to enlarge.Top new features of Dreamweaver CS4Adobe Dreamweaver CS4 extends the reach of professional coders, designers, and developers with a fullcomplement of new features.Live ViewView your web pages under real-world browser conditions with the new Live View--while still retaining directaccess to the code. This new rendering mode, which uses the open source rendering engine WebKit, displaysyour designs like a standards-based browser. Changes to the code are immediately reflected in the rendereddisplay.However, Live View is no ordinary static viewport. Trigger your CSS-based navigation to view hover states orpull-down submenus, and freeze your page at any point to review the generated code. Dreamweaver CS4combines the beauty of real-world rendering with the brains of interactive coding.Related Files and Code NavigatorDreamweaver CS4 introduces two new features that will help you more efficiently manage the various files thatmake up the modern web page. The Related Files feature displays all the documents associated with yourcurrent page--whether CSS, JavaScript, PHP or XML--in a bar along the top of your primary document. Click anyrelated file to edit its source in Code View while viewing the parent page in Design View. Changes made to therelated file code are immediately reflected in Design View.Prefer to work at the code level? The new Code Navigator pop-up window shows you links to all the codesources that affect your current selection. A click in either Code or Design View brings up the Code Navigator,which displays CSS rules, server-side includes, external JavaScript functions, Dreamweaver templates, Libraryfiles, iframe source files, and more.CSS best practicesImplement CSS best practices without writing code. The new CSS tab in the Properties panel shows the stylesfor the current selection as well as all the applicable CSS rules. Hover over any property to view a tool tip withno-jargon English explanations of CSS principles. New CSS rules can be created and applied in the Properties
  5. 5. panel and stored in the same document or an external style sheet. Dreamweaver CS4 even gives you controlover the specificity of your rule: Just click Less Specific or More Specific in the updated New CSS Rule dialog boxto target your style precisely.Code hinting for Ajax and JavaScript frameworksWrite JavaScript more quickly and accurately with improved support for JavaScript core objects and primitivedata types. Advanced code-hinting functionality helps you power through your code, whether youre addingfunctions to defined primitive data types (including Object, Array, Number, RegExp, or String) or DOM objectssuch as Window, Screen, Document, or Event. Dreamweaver CS4 also extends code-hinting muscle to yourmost advanced custom functions with support for parameters, class constructors, and nested objects, updatedin real time as you modify your related JavaScript files.Put the extended coding functionality of Dreamweaver CS4 to work by incorporating popular JavaScriptframeworks including jQuery, Prototype, and Spry. Simply attach the appropriate external JavaScript files, andDreamweaver automatically displays code hints on demand. Built-in syntax error detection helps you craft thebulletproof code you need--the first time, and every time.Adobe InContext EditingEnable content authors to edit their own web pages without additional software installations--and, at the sametime, free yourself up to design more. The new online InContext Editing service from Adobe lets anyone whocan use a browser update content quickly and easily. Design your editable pages in Dreamweaver CS4 to retaintotal control over the look and feel of your sites. Then, simply designate the parts of the page you want yourclients to be able to change; all other sections of the page are locked, and editable only by you. Easily set CSSstyles to ensure entered content is properly and consistently formatted. Dreamweaver gives you the tools tocreate the perfect website, and hosted InContext Editing lets your clients keep that site up-to-date. (InContextEditing is one of several online services available from Dreamweaver CS4. For more information, see CreativePro Online Services on page 7.)HTML data setsThe lure of dynamic data is strong, but learning to use databases or XML can be daunting. Dreamweaver CS4combines accessibility with ease of use in the new HTML data sets feature. With HTML data sets functionality,you create your data in a standard HTML table, a series of div tags, or even an unordered list, and then chooseInsert > Spry > Spry Data Set to integrate that data into a dynamic table on the page, complete with sortablecolumns, a master-detail layout, or other sophisticated displays. Its easier than ever, with real-time previews ofyour data--both for selection and results. Spry Data Set also works with XML files to render information fromRSS feeds and other sources.Photoshop Smart ObjectsIntegration between Photoshop and Dreamweaver has evolved to the next level of compatibility andfunctionality. Simply drag and drop a Photoshop PSD file into a Dreamweaver CS4 page to create an imageSmart Object. Unlike standard web-page graphics, a Smart Object is tightly linked to its source file. A smallindicator on the Smart Object in Dreamweaver CS4 shows when the source and instance are in sync. When youmake any changes to the source image, Dreamweaver notes that the files are out of sync; just click the Updatefrom Original icon in the Properties panel to immediately update your image without opening Photoshop.But Smart Objects are more clever still. Lets say you have a logo placed throughout your site in a variety ofsizes as Smart Objects. Any updates made to the Photoshop file can be applied individually to the associatedSmart Objects on a page-by-page basis, or to all of them at once through the Assets panel. Unique sizes aremaintained while the image itself is faithfully resampled. Best of all, the Smart Object evolution is built on topof current Photoshop and Dreamweaver integration, so you can still copy image selections from Photoshop andpaste them in Dreamweaver for an easy comp-to-layout workflow. Moreover, youre free to rescale Photoshopimages in Dreamweaver to fine-tune your design with no image degradation or revisits to Photoshop.
  6. 6. The new Code Navigator pop-up window shows you links to all the code sources that affect your currentselection. A click in either Code or Design View brings up the Code Navigator, which displays CSS rules,server-side includes, external JavaScript functions, Dreamweaver templates, Library files, iframe source files,and more. Click to enlarge.Style your sites with the enhanced CSS implementation tools in Dreamweaver CS4. Define and modify CSS rulesinstantly in the Properties panel. Use the Related Files and Code Navigator features to find specific CSS rules.Click to enlarge.Subversion integrationWhen a collaborative project requires a team of designers and developers, open-source Subversion software isoften used to handle version control. Dreamweaver CS4 integrates Subversion for a more robustcheck-in/check-out experience with file versioning, rollback, and more. Once youve defined Subversion as your
  7. 7. version-control system, you can update your site to get the latest versions of its pages. Modified pages can bechecked into a Subversion repository directly from within Dreamweaver--no third-party utility or command lineinterface is required. Dreamweaver can also revert checked-out files or mark conflicts as resolved to completethe team site-building experience.Adobe AIR authoring supportCreate multi-platform desktop applications from your Dreamweaver HTML and JavaScript sites with new AdobeAIR authoring support.
