How to use jQuery in dreamweaver


Hi Simran,

Before we even go to how to use jquery in Dreamweaver, we first of all have to know what it is. It is a library that consists of packaged or embedded javascript functions, and with it you can create a very interactive interface for your website without possibly having to go through the trouble of knowing the JavaScript codes and how they are implemented. It usually has the .js (dot js) extension.

The following is a simple program in which jquery has been used:


<script type="text/javascript" src="jquery.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">

<p>Clicking here will make the text to disappear.</p>


There is a lot more about jquery that you may like to read about, including its implementation, when to use it in Dreamweaver and how to use it. Just follow the links below, there are a lot of details your will find from there:

You have to first download the jQuery source file from Then just like in using CSS you have to link it using the script html tag. Like the example below:

<script type="text/javascript" src="jquery.js"></script>

If you know Java Script then it is almost the same just with a little bit more features. But remember that you must know how to use HTML, CSS, and Java Script before you can learn jQuery. I suggest that you go to, they will provide you with more information and basic and advanced tutorials on how to use jQuery.

You can also look for the HTML, CSS and Java Script tutorial on this website just in case you don't know how to use this as well. They also offer certificates to certify your skills.
