Join James Williamson for an in-depth discussion in this video Examining Spry functionality , part of Dreamweaver CS3 Projects: Creating Custom Spry Widgets.
I have an example file open. This is details.htm. If you're following along with me, you could open this up for yourself in the Chapter 1 directory. And all I want to do right now is take a look at the structure. So I'm going to turn the Style Rendering off, so I'm going to open of my Style Rendering toolbar, and I'm going to turn Style Rendering off say that I can take a closer look at what's happening. I have some thumbnails on the page and when I click one of those thumbnails, I want to display more information about that. Now this is sort of a master detail page set and instead of having to navigate to another page, I want that data to display down below that and more importantly, I want it to animate as displays for increased user interactivity.
Really nice. And depending upon where we click and how far it has to go, we're actually running through some of the other items to get to it. So it's kind of like we're scrolling through really big long list. Well, this is a very cool Spry widget I'm sure you're really eager to delve into creating this. But before we start creating it, we need to first download a more complete version of the Spry framework and examine it in a little more detail.
