As you move further into extending Dreamweaver, you're likely to encounter a situation where you want an action to occur automatically, without any user intervention such as clicking a button, or accessing a particular menu item. The folks that built extensibility into Dreamweaver also thought of this as a possibility, and added in support for a number of events that are very easy to tap into, by merely placing a Command file in a certain folder, or by giving a Command a specific file name suffix.
There are three general categories of event-driven Commands that Dreamweaver allows an Extensioneer to tap into: 1. Application session Commands: Startup and Shutdown Commands 2. Document related events: Opening a document, before saving a document, and after saving a document. 3. Menu and Function call triggered events
In this tutorial, we'll cover the first type, Application session Commands, and create Dreamweaver Commands that can be run when the application starts and when it shuts down.
