Why am I getting a message indicating a file was saved outside of Dreamweaver?

Why am I getting a message indicating a file was saved outside of Dreamweaver?

I didn't see this message before, but now I'm starting to see a message saying that a file has been modified outside of Dreamweaver and asking me if I want to reload it.

The file's name shows WA_ValidationToolkit/WAVT_ValidatedForm_PHP.php

Why would this suddenly be showing up? I am editing a form using FB when this happens.

You have this file open in Dream,weaver when you are editing the form using form builder.

When you edit the form using Form Builder, it recreates the WAVT_ValidatedForm_PHP.php file.

if that file is open in Dreamweaver, it will give that message.

To avoid that message, make sure the WAVT_ValidatedForm_PHP.phpfile is not open in Dreamweaver.
