Creating the HTML, CSS, and JavaScript files

From: Create a Rotating Carousel with jQuery and Dreamweaver

Video: Creating the HTML, CSS, and JavaScript files

Now that we have our graphics created and a copy of jquery and the Roundabout plug-in, let's move over to Dreamweaver. Now, if you prefer to take this course in a more code-only environment, we are offering the same course in the lynda.com library using Aptana Studio instead of Dreamweaver. So, inside of Dreamweaver, let's come up and choose File > New. On the left-hand side here, let's choose Blank. Under Page Type, let's choose HTML. Under DocType, let's choose XHTML 1.0 Transitional. This will make sure that our file will work all the way back in IE 7 and 8 as well. Then click Create.

Creating the HTML, CSS, and JavaScript files

Now that we have our graphics created and a copy of jquery and the Roundabout plug-in, let's move over to Dreamweaver. Now, if you prefer to take this course in a more code-only environment, we are offering the same course in the lynda.com library using Aptana Studio instead of Dreamweaver. So, inside of Dreamweaver, let's come up and choose File > New. On the left-hand side here, let's choose Blank. Under Page Type, let's choose HTML. Under DocType, let's choose XHTML 1.0 Transitional. This will make sure that our file will work all the way back in IE 7 and 8 as well. Then click Create.

Right away, let's choose File > Save. Desktop/myCarousel folder and we'll name this carousel.html. Then hit Save. Let's create two more files. First, File > New > Blank, CSS for Page Type, choose Create. Let's save this. We're going to save this into the includes directory, and we're going to call this carousel.css and then File > New > Blank, Page Type > JavaScript, Create.

Let's save this right away, carousel.js, and we'll save this in the includes directory as well. Now, we'll switch over to carousel.html. Inside of carousel.html, let's get our cursor after the title tag in the head area, hit Return, and we want to import the CSS file we just created first. Let's come under Format > CSS Styles, choose Attach Style Sheet. Under File/URL hit Browse, choose the mycarousel folder on the desktop, includes directory, carousel.css, click Choose. Then say OK.

We'll see that link being written down here. Let's get our cursor after the CSS link. Let's hit a returnm and now we want to import the JavaScript files. The first one we need to import is jQuerym because the plug-ins and the script we're going to write all hook onto jQuery, so jQuery has to be imported first. Now to bring that in on the new line after the carousel.css, let's come up and choose Insert. Let's come down to HTML, choose Script Objects, then choose Script.

The Type should default to text/ javaScript. Then click the folder next to Source, choose includes directory, and let's bring in jQuery first. Click Choose, click OK. After the script tag that brings in jQuery, let's hit a Return. Let's come down to Insert > HTMl > Script Objects. Let's choose Script again. Under Source, let's come down and choose the Roundabout plug-in. Click Choose, click OK, one more line Return.

Lastly, let's come down and choose Insert > HTML > Script Objects > Script. Click the folder next to source and let's bring in the carousel.js file that we just created. Then say OK. Now, let's switch over to Design view in the carousel.html file. Let's choose File > Save to make sure all our files have been saved, and if you're using a more recent version of Dreamweaver, you'll see the related file showing up here. So, we can see the css file, jquery, roundabout, and carousel.js files all in the order we imported them and then showing at the top of the HTML file.

So, now that all of these files are in place, in the next movie we'll start by creating some CSS rules based on our sketch to begin to construct our project.
