CS6 and Repeat Region

CS6 and Repeat Region

In DW cs6 I applied a DW repeat region on a page to images from a table column.

The images displayed four across the page as well as vertically.


(In cs3 these images would only display vertically.)

I also applied DataAssist Repeat Selection with 2 and 3 repetions but this did not seem to affect the image layout.

I cannot see what the WA Repeat Selection SB is now used for?

Thanks for any info,
Regards

John

you don't have anything to force a line break after each image:
<?php do { ?>
<img src="<?php echo $row_rsIndex['FullPathImage1']; ?>" width="200" height="200" />
<?php } while ($row_rsIndex = mysql_fetch_assoc($rsIndex)); ?>


since there is no line break, the second image will show next to the first image and so on till there is not more available width, only when the available width runs out will it start a new line.


try adding a br tag after the image to force a new line for each one.

I seem to have the opposite problem now, I cannot get images to go horizontally.

I think I have followed the instructions to no result.

I am attaching an image and a file zip

Perhaps you can see what is wrong please?
Many thanks
John

I am sorry to have confused you Jason.
I want to have images displayed horizontally say 3 wide and vertically

As I understand it in order to get WA extension to create a list which is horizontal and well as vertical
the DW repeat should be applied and then the WA Repeat selection.

So far I have not been able to achieve this. The last sample page I sent just displays 1 row vertically.

However I have managed to get it working by another method.
Many thanks
John

Ok, to display a grid like this, use the Repeating Table behavior.

see the "Using Repeating Tables in Data Bridge" tutorial on the Data Bridge support page:
data_bridge_repeat_table.php

I now see my mistake

I was using Server Behaviour, WebAssist, Data Assist, Repeat Selection

When I use Toolbar, WebAssist, Database, Repeating Table it works.

Guess I need to find out what the Repeat Selection does!

Many thanks for putting me straight Jason!

repeat selection is basically the same as the Dreamweaver repeat region.
