Formatting Data Assit pages

Formatting Data Assit pages

Hi, I recently purchased Super Suite and have been trying to learn Data Assist. I'm hoping you can help with a few questions. My basic question is formatting the pages that it creates. Since I am new to all of this, Im wondering if there is another extension that came with SS that may make it easier to format the pages than editing the code manually. I'm really looking for something that will make putting the boxes, buttons, drop downs, etc look much more professional than just having a single column with 30 fields straight down the page. I really don't like how it puts all of my form fields into a single column. Also, is there an easy way to go back and re-run the data assist wizard if I notice that maybe I need to add or delete a field from the database? currently I am deleting all of my pages and going back to rerun the wizard which is very time consuming. Last question.... I was trying to edit the style sheet so I could make the background black but it only appears that way in design view. When I preview the page in my browser is just looks normal (white). Thanks fornyour help! Brian

In Dreamweaver, you can create a template to use a design for the pages in your site.

you can use CSS Sculptor to create your layout, then save the CSS Sculptor layout as a template in Dreamweaver. In the data assist wizard, you can select to use the template you created.

see the "Creating and applying a Dreamweaver Template" tutorial on the learning resources page:
resources.php


The data assist wizard is not re entrant, if you need to add or delete a filed from the database, you will either need to manually edit the server behaviors on the pages, or delete them and re run the wizard.


It sounds to me like your style changes are not being saved and uploaded to the server.
