From struggling to learn HTML, Javascript and watching in awe as the GURU's created extension after extension, i've now come to the point of creating my own extensions. Just 2 weeks after i started learning to handcode ASP, Dreamweaver Ultradev 1 was released, and i've been an avid user since then.
I'm proud of what the community has helped Dreamweaver to become and hope to make many more usefull extensions in the future.

Works Great in MX
July 31, 2003 by Gou Xinnian

This extension works great in DW MX, you might want to update the compatiblity listing so users will know. I used it in DW MX 6.1 on MS Windows XP Pro using ASP and this extension worked like a charm.

Just a quick note, if you use certain fields often you might want to specify their value in a config page include. Such as this.

<%
Dim UName
Uname = Request.Form("UserName")
%>
Hello <%= Uname %>, Welcome To my site!

Nex,t anytime you want to use the value of the field username in a form request all you have to do is use the the expression tag and Uname to write the value to your page.

Thanks for such a powerful extension.
