What does the <oa:widgets> tag do?

Oct 20, 2011 1:32 PM

Hi All,

 

I recently started experimenting with some of the widgets available for DW.  I notice that when inserting one onto a page that there is a section of script that gets added after all of the styling info.  There is one top level tag <oa:widgets> and then 1 tag for each of the widgets added with an id and a binding.  Can anyone tell me exactly what these lines of code are doing? Do they even need to be there?

 

Thanks,

Chris

    Dreamweaver web widgets conform to the Open AJAX Alliance (openajax.org) standard for widgets. I think these tags help DW know what widgets you have on your page when it's edited. I don't think it will break anything if you remove them.
