For those of you who don't subscribe to the Dreamweaver Team blog, be warned that Adobe has decided not to develop Spry any further. See: http://blogs.adobe.com/dreamweaver/2012/08/update-on-adobe-spry-framew ork-availability.html.
Spry is being released with an open source licence on github. The blog post doesn't say so explicitly, but the implication would appear to be that Spry will eventually be withdrawn from Dreamweaver.
So those of us who use it need to get onto the blog and add our comments. If enough do so, maybe they'll change their mind!
I doubt it. Spry hasn't been actively developed for quite some time. So this decision doesn't surprise me. You can continue using Spry code in your web sites if you want to. But I think there are other better scripts you could use instead.
jQuery is very well supported and documented. There isn't much you can't do with it. But you need to be able to work with code.
If you want easy to use professional quality widgets, look at Project Seven's commercial extensions for Dreamweaver.
Thanks, David (I think!). I found some really good Spry tutorials, and also used the Missing Manual book. I can't claim to understand everything about the menu bars, but definitely a lot more than when I started
Something similar to the interakt plugins that used to work in DW later renamed to Toolbox. Learning curves sometimes are very long, once you learn to use something it's very hard to change.
Im' still using the interakt stuff but adobe has recently deleted the help forum which means this is now truly dead.
Same will happen with Spry which I was just beggining to get a hang of.
Such is life with Adobe, maybe not alwasy for the best.
