I just installed Dreamweave VS version 6.
The installer asked me to use Dreamweaver as default tool to open ASP, PHP after installation.
I would like to know does Dreamweave support PHP and ASP.
Can I use Dreamweaver as a tool to develop PHP and ASP.Net web application?
Your information and help is great appreciated,
ASP, no. Use Microsoft Expression Web since ASP is a Microsoft technology.
Thanks for the message and help,
If this is the case then are there any particular reason that installer asked me to use Dreamweaver as default application to open ASP files after installation?
Thanks again for helping and information,
It's just standard. You can develop ASP/ASP.NET etc. using DW, but DW provides no support for server interactions in those languages. After all, it's all just a text file, and DW can write the code as well as Notepad.
I disagree with Murray.
But he's right.
Dreamweaver is, primarily, a code editor. And your computer's operating system is now asking you what files containing code ought to be "associated" with Dreamweaver. For example, you may have .JPG files associated with Adobe's Photoshop. But if you have a different .JPG viewer, you may wish to use that as, if all you want to do is identify the picture and not edit it, Photoshop may be overkill.
So, go ahead. Answer "yes" to both php and ASP files, unless you have another code editor (like Microsoft's Expression Web) you would prefer to use with ASP files. It's your option.
In any case, you can always drag and drop the files onto a Dreamweaver icon (if Windoze supports that) or use File>Open… and choose the file. And, from within a defined site, Dreamweaver will tend to open all files in that site.
Same as you do in Photoshop with .JPG files if you have a lighter-weight JPEG viewer that you prefer.
And, from within your operating system, you can always reassign a preferred application to a file extension later on, if you don't like what the current default is.
Thanks for the message,
If this is the case, does Dreamweaver need install any ASP.Net package?
If not, does Dreamweaver create ASP.Net folder and files structures like web.Config and App.Config and Cotent folder?
If not, should developer handle by him or herself?
Does DreamWeaver support code hint and code completion function for ASP.Net?
Thanks again for the information and help,
