Detail Page Navigation

I was trying for a long time in Dreamweaver to get the navigation of a detail page with eCart working. With the standard Server Behavior it isn't possible as I figured out. Here the explanation from Tom Muck:

Users of the Repeat Region have a convenient way to navigate records using the Recordset Navigation Bar, built into Dreamweaver as an application object. However, there is no way to do the same thing with a Detail page (part of the Master Detail Page Set application object). Here is why:

A Detail page contains a recordset that has one record in it and one record only: a record that is retrieved via a URL variable. When your end user views a list of records on a Master page, he can click a link that passes the URL variable to the detail page. The detail page retrieves one record only, based on the primary key or other unique field of the table. There is no way to predict what the "next" or "previous" record will be, based on the key value, because the records may not be sequential. For example, even when a key is an autonumber field that is sequential, if a record is deleted the previous or next record number can no longer be predicted.

It is true that you can create a navigable detail page by using a Repeat Region and a repeat count of 1, but the Repeat Region behavior unfortunately retrieves an entire recordset of all records, even if you only want to show 1 record. This is not desirable.

I have then found a solution and I would like to post it here, because there probably other people who are loking for this solution.

Check out this Dreamweaver Extension with the perfect solution.
