How to create and use Dreamweaver’s Spry Tabs

When you have lots and lots of things to show on a Webpage to the point it becomes unreadable what do you do? You try to split the content on several pages. The old way to do this was to create separate pages and the user could browse and open various content sections in new pages. The new way to do this is to create a single page that shows the first section of content and hides the rest. Viewing the rest of the content sections is possible without reloading the page, which makes things very fast. Dreamweaver’s Spry Tabs are an easy way to display several content sections without refreshing the page. To give you an example, have a look at this page were you can browse through samples of Vertical, Tabbed and Dropdown menus without reloading the page. Sweet isn’t it? Let me show you how I did the sample page (tutorial explains also how to do the 2 columns DIVs that hold the screenshots).
