Repeat regions in Dreamweaver

Posted on 2006-04-24

Can anyone tell me how I create a repeat region in dreamweaver which spans a table 5 columns across and 5 down.

What I want to do is populate the table with data from a database but instead of going "just across" or "just down" I want to go from right to left (column 1, row1) to (column 5, row 1) THEN down to (column1, row 2) to (column 5, row 2) and so on until I have filled the 25 cells.

    Hi gbdreamweaver,

    This is called "horizontal looping" and it is not the easiest thing in the world to do.  DW developers have published extensions to make it happen.

    The best free one is from Tom Muck and DWTeam:

    You can download it from that page after you read the tutorial.  The behavior makes life really easy.
