MX Javascript error

Question:


How can I get the Insert Record with Ident extension to work with Dreamweaver mx?

Answer:


The book I was using as a reference brought me to this site to download this extension. The book is the Joy of Dreamweaver MX and it explicitly said to get the newest version because version 1.0.0 is not compatible with MX. However I could't find the correct version that is compatible with MX and continued to get an error.

So if any of you are having this Javascript error while using this with MX I urge you to check out the following article:

http://www.newmanzone.com/recipes/recipe.asp?LinkID=2&Link=index2.htm


Or basically change the file InsertRecordWithIdent.htm
change the line

<SCRIPT src="../EditOperations.js"></SCRIPT>
To
<SCRIPT src="../Shared/EditOperations.js"></SCRIPT>

And it should work.

*Note If you do a search for the file (InsertRecordWithIdent.htm) you must "Show hidden files" in the folder options menu.

This works with Win2000 and Win XP

DW 8?

anyone know how to get this working with DW8, I had it working with DW MX no problems using the line edit that NewManZone gave, but no joy with version 8 :-(

con not find InsertRecordWithIdent.htm

I spent an hour with trying to fix the code in the InsertRecordWithIdent.htm but problem was that I couldn't have found that file Even if I tryed to FIND For files and folders in WIN XP. That folder was displayed as a 'hidden' !!!...so if you are trying to locate it, go to FIND at start/find and check 'search in hidden folders' Then you shoudl find it really quick! Lukas

RE: Not in Windows 2000

I originally used this fix in a windiws 2000 environment however I took the screen shot from a different machine. I believe you have to fix the file which is located in C:\Documents and Settings\Username\applicationData\Macromedia\DreamweaverMX\Configuration\serverBehaviors\

And within the previously named  folder you will need to go down on emore level but it will depend on your programming language, like for me I would have to change the InsertRecordWithIdent.htm which is in the ASP_vbs folder because that is my testing server but for you it maybe the one in the ASP folder or the one in the ASP_js folder.

Good Luck

Not in Windows 2000

Driving me nuts.

It creates a new folder called 'asp' in configuration/serverbehaviours/

Driving me crazy
