the Live Data window.
Dreamweaver UltraDev's advanced
Live Data window feature allows you to view the dynamic content
of your web pages, whilst you work on the pages. UltraDev can
do this only if it is connected to a web server that will host
your remote site, as it then uses the server to process the page
and return the results in the Live Data window.
For home or new users, Microsoft's
PWS (Personal Web Server) is easy to use
and can run on your local machine, allowing you to take advantage
of UltraDev's Live Data feature.
Basically it sets up an area on your
local disk that you can publish to.

in the Web Server Info category (on the left).
We have chosen Local Web Server because we are using Personal
Web Server to serve up our pages from our local machine.
5. In the Live Data URL Prefix box,
type the URL prefix of your site. That is, the folder at the root
of your site. e.g. if using PWS it will be something like:
6. Click OK and then click Done.
