Expected duration: xxx minutes
Before you proceed, make sure you review the requirements in this section.
Note the knowledge that the user needs to complete the tutorial. If better resources are available for beginners, link to them.
This tutorial assumes that you have some basic knowledge of, or programming experience with, the following technologies.
List all the software that is needed and where to download it. For NetBeans builds, just link to http://www.netbeans.info/downloads/index.php. If the user can build on an example project, link to it here as well. Just include the example project in the zip file you send to the web team, and we will post it with the correct link.
Before you begin, you need to install the following software on your computer:
If you use any variables, such as <NETBEANS_HOME> or <PROJECT_HOME>, list them here.
Intro for subheading.
Note: A subheading at this level is not required. See Second H2 Heading for an example.
To Create Numbered Lists
To Place an Image Below a Step
Figure 1: Image in div Tag With Caption Text: Left-Aligned Image With Caption
Figure 2: Image in div Tag With Caption Text: Left-Aligned Image With Caption and Click to Enlarge
Figure 3: Image in div Tag With Caption Text: Center-Aligned Image With Caption and Click to Enlarge
The following code is used for the center-aligned placement of the image, with line breaks for readability.
|Code Example 1: Code for the Placement of the Center-Aligned Image|
<p align="center"> <img src="../../images/articles/nbentpack-tuts/sample_image_nolink.png" alt="Sample image that does not require a link to the full version because the width of the image is not more than 600px"> </p>
The following code is used for the link and the placement of the scaled-down image, with line breaks for readability.
|Code Example 2: Code for the Link and the Placement of the Scaled-Down Image|
<p align="center"> <a href="../../images/articles/nbentpack-tuts/sample_image_needslink_small.png" title="Click to view full size image"> <img src="../../images/articles/nbentpack-tuts/sample_image_needslink.png"> </p>
Reminder: Use the NetBeans Documents and Files tool to make your code example files available from the NetBeans site.
The following code shows a link to a file with example code. View the source of this file to copy and paste an example without line breaks.
|Code Example 3: Code for a Link to a File With Example Code|
<p>For this example you can use the <a href="http://www.netbeans.org/files/documents/full-path-to-your-file">Filename.ext</a> file ... </p>
Reminder: Use the NetBeans Documents and Files tool to make your .swf files available from the NetBeans site.
The following example code shows a link to a flash demo. View the source of this file to copy and paste an example without line breaks.
|Code Example 4: Code for an Example Without Line Breaks|
<p align="center"> <a href="full-url-to-your-htm-file-that-references-the-swf-file.htm" target="demoWin" onClick='demoWin=open(this.href,this.target,"resizable=yes,menubar=yes,status=yes,toolbar=no,height=600,width=830,scrollbars=yes"); demoWin.focus();return false'> <img src="../../images/articles/your-tutorial-dir/flash_demo_button_med.gif" border="0"> View Demo</a> </p>
The pop-up window that contains the flash demo should not have the navigation wrapper. If you open a file in a pop-up window, you can add a special metatag to remove the default navigation wrapper.
Use the following code to open an HTML file in a pop-up window.
|Code Example 5: Code to Open an HTML File in a Pop-Up Window|
<a href="yourfilename.html" onclick="return open_popup('myfilename.html')">Project Types Compared</a>
Add the following metatag to a file if you do not want the file to use the default navigation wrapper. The metatag is useful if you want to open a file in a pop-up window. You should also include this metatag if the file is used to display an SWF file [Linking to a Flash Demo].
|Code Example 6: Metatag to Be Included if the File Is Used to Display an SWF File|
<meta name="nb-nav-wrap" content="N">
