    Export options

    You can use "Save as HTML" function.

    - To create the library item you should do the following things:
    Create a new folder in the root of your website, for example "library". In this folder create a "New File" and name it menu.lbi.

    Create Library in Dreamweaver

    - Now you can add a javascript menu in your library. Open menu.lbi page (double-click menu.lbi in Files list window) and switch to the HTML View. Delete all code from this page. Open the generated in Vista Buttons menu.htmlpage in any text editor. Copy all code within the following tags:
          <!-- Begin Vista-Buttons.com -->
            ...
          <!-- End Vista-Buttons.com -->

    - Go back to Dreamweaver. Go to the "Edit Menu" with Dreamweaver and select the "Paste" option to paste the menu code that we copied to the clipboard earlier. To display images correctly you should change vbImgPath parameter. Find the following code
    var vbImgPath="menu-files/"
    and change it to
    var vbImgPath="library/menu-files/"
