Creating custom textboxes and UI elements - Macromedia Dreamweaver

Hi, I've seen a couple of sites that have changed the look and feel of their textfields and I was wondering if anyone knew how that was done. I'm hoping its easy to do simple stuff, because simple changes can still be quite effective :-) Also, is it possible to make new web components for the UI - say, a table element (just off the top of my head) If so, how would that be done? Thanks everyone. This board is a great resource! Well done and thanks again Simon...

    Default Creating custom textboxes and UI elements

    Hi,

    I've seen a couple of sites that have changed the look and feel of their
    textfields and I was wondering if anyone knew how that was done. I'm hoping
    its easy to do simple stuff, because simple changes can still be quite
    effective :-)

    Also, is it possible to make new web components for the UI - say, a table
    element (just off the top of my head)
    If so, how would that be done?

    Thanks everyone.

    This board is a great resource! Well done and thanks again

    Gazing into my crystal ball I observed "Simon Harvey"

    You need to read up on CSS. Try http://www.w3schools.com/css/default.asp
     

    I'm not sure exactly what you mean by new components for the UI, but I am
    thinking no. There are things that you can do server side with components,
    but not really client side. Browsers are looking for established elements
    and will most likely ignore elements that do not exist, unless you are
    writing for a particular browser in an intranet situation, where you know
    the user is always going to have the same UA.

    CSS. Some browsers support it, some don't, some only support it for
    some form controls. Netscape 4 I've seen break the form control
    entirely if you try, on a few occasions, so best to hide the CSS from
    it using any of the standard tricks.
     

    I'm assuming this is a Dreamweaver-specific question, given the
    crosspost. If not, then I'm not sure I understand what you're trying
    to do - could you give a more detailed example.

    you can change the properties of textfields, by giving them an id,
    then altering them by CSS.
