Learning to use CSS and DIV Tags for Columns in Dreamweaver


Create Columns and headers in Dreamweaver
Manage Sites - New Site - Sample Site
Local Root folder on the desktop.
Create a basic file  FILE NEW - premade layouts. 
Not hard - New File and name it
Test.htm, then open it.
Switch to Design View
Layout 975 X 200 Banner

A.  Create the CONTAINER that is going to hold all of the different divs in the website.
      Go to WINDOW - CSS Styles (on the right side you will see CSS Styles All Rules box)
                                                                You will find that there are no CSS Styles defined.
      Click on the plus sign (looks like a piece of paper with a plus sign on it on the upper right side of the screen)

      The popup window will ask you to create a CLASS.
      Name it .container (note the period in front of the word container)
      Put that into a NEW style sheet file.  Click OK

Where do you want to save it?  In the Sample Sites Folder
Name it styles.css  SAVE  ( I've actually named mine style_sheet_01 - Choose the name you like)

Now the Dialog Box Named CSS Rule Definition for .container in styles.css pops up.
Select BOX
975 X 1200 (or you could leave the height blank)
Float Left - Click OK

The page is empty as if nothing happened.
The style is here, but I haven't put it into the page.

INSERT - Layer Objects - Div Tag (find insert at the top menu bar fourth from the left)
Select the class name from the drop down box under class.  .container
Click OK
Now the container is all done!

B.  PLACE HEADER INSIDE OF CONTAINER (Now we want to put the header and columns INSIDE of this container.)

      Delete the sample text content. 
      IMPORTANT - Leave your cursor INSIDE the container for the next part.

Make a new class and name it .header
Click NEW CSS Style

Name it .header and then Define in styles.css
Click OK

Now the Dialog Box Named CSS Rule Definition for .container in .header.css pops up.
Select BOX
975 X 200 (or you could leave the height blank)
go to the background and choose a color (to see what you're doing)
Float Left - Click OK

The header is there, but its not inserted yet.
INSERT - Layout Objects Add the Insert .header

Now Make the LEFT COLUMN
Highlight the Header box and hit the Right arrow key.
It will look as if the cursor did nothing.  It will be blinking in the upper right corner.

INSERT - Layer Objects - Div Tag
New CSS Style Box 175 X 600 Float to the left
Change background if you want.
Highlight the box and hit the right arrow key and then add the middle column.
Insert - Layout Objects - Div Tag
Box 400 X 600
Change color if you want

Then add one more ---- all will add up to 975

Double Click on the css file names on the right in the CSS area in order to make changes to the sizes and colors.


Its going to ask me to create a class (always start a class with a period .)
