Hi ppl...
I'm a newbie around these topics... my question is if you know how to protect a dreamweaver javascript add-in from other people copying it...

I've been thinking of putting all the functions in a DLL, and from there, ensure people register the extension.

Any ideas?
TIA, Pedro.

the only way to hide your code is to put the functions in a DLL. you can use dreamweavers C Level extensibility to implement javascript functions in C. The DLL can then be saved in the 'jsextensions' folder in the dreamweaver configuration folder.

There is some info on this - go to help>extending dreamweaver in dreamweaver menu. However, this is more of a reference than a useful tutorial. I recently found a book on amazon - Beyond Dreamweaver by Joseph Lowery, which has a small chapter on C Level Extensibility, but apart from this, I can't find any resources or discussion groups related to this subject.

If you're proficient at C programming, then you might not need any more resources - and if so then let me know cos i could do with some help!!
