Typographical conventions

The following typographical conventions are used in this guide:

  • Code font indicates code fragments and API literals, including class names, method names, function names, type names, scripts, SQL statements, and both HTML and XML tag and attribute names.

  • Italic code font indicates replaceable items in code.

  • The continuation symbol (¬ ) indicates that a long line of code has been broken across two or more lines. Due to margin limits in this book’s format, what is otherwise a continuous line of code must be split. When copying the lines of code, eliminate the continuation symbol and type the lines as one line.

  • Curly braces ({}) that surround a function argument indicate that the argument is optional.

  • Function names that have the prefix dreamweaver.funcname can be abbreviated to dw.funcname when you are writing code. This manual uses the full dreamweaver. prefix when defining the function and in the index. Many examples use the dw. prefix, however.

Naming conventions

The following naming conventions are used in this guide:

  • You—the developer who is responsible for writing extensions

  • The user—the person using Dreamweaver
