"The Server Behavior Builder (SBB) has been part of Dreamweaver for a long time, but few people seem to realize just how useful it can be in speeding up development with PHP or other server-side languages. What makes the SBB so powerful is its ability to insert commonly used blocks of code simultaneously in different parts of the page. Just add placeholders for values that will be different each time, and Dreamweaver automatically builds a dialog box for you to fill in.
The beauty of the Server Behavior Builder is that it’s not dependent on Dreamweaver’s built-in server behaviors. You can use it with your own code or in conjunction with a third-party PHP library, such as the Zend Framework."
