View Full Version : A Question About DHTML Menus...

08-26-2004, 08:19 PM
I have just created this DHTML drop down menu system with Tigra menu builder but for some reason i can't position it where i want it to be. What i mean is...it doesn't actually seem to be there. I mean i can't seem to nest the menu into a table for positioning etc. It's as if it's just on it's own seperate layer that i can't get to. Is it not possible to interact with the menu through the plain HTML? I don't understand how anyone would impliment such a menu if you can't position it like that. Are all DHTML menus like this?

Please help, if you understand what i'm talking about here, haha. Thanks so much in advance.

I worked with an older version of Tigra menu, and I believe it had a z-index specified somewhere within the javascript. Perhaps your other elements are obscuring it? But if I recall correctly, the positioning is also set within the javascript.

Im aware that positioning can be achieved through the program, but i want to know if it is possible to position it without the use of DHTML and instead HTML. What i mean is, i'd like it to be nested to a table instead of it simply floating there on it's own layer. Is there any way around this?

Thanks for your help

Note: Inserting menu initialization block within relatively positioned HTML element (table cell for example) will not change menupositioning. Use Menu Geometry structure for that.
