View Full Version : Help required with mouse-over menu

Mar 26th, 2003, 10:10 AM
After many an hour searching the web, I have found the perfect menu for myself, Trouble is, I can't work out how it is done, and I've trawled loads of javascript sites looking for similar examples.

Here's the menu I'm looking for >>>


n.b. not the black one, but the blue one.

Any ideas? Is this a Javascript ?:confused:

You mean the button-type links with "Search" and "Glossary" etc? Yeah, that's javascript, mainly. I guess. MSDN tend to screw about with their sites a fair bit, in order to show us the wonderful things we can do with their latest technology; the button-effect thing is probably CSS, maybe some sort of DHTML Behaviour. The rest is just switching the source of that left-hand frame.

Any help?

Yeah, tried copying the source from MSDN, and I can get some of it to work - also downloaded the .js file - think it's toolbar_UL.js, but not too sure ??

I can't get the button effects to work - are these css ??

That's it !! Damn, I thought I'd looked through dynamic drives scripts, but I guess I was probably looking i the wrong area -(Javascript instead of DHTML).

Thanks :thumbsup:
