Link-based Menu position relative to link

Poster: barneson

I am activating a popup menu with the OnMouseOver function. I would like for the menu to popup near the linked text.

How do I accomplish this without setting the absolute position of the menu in the menu_array3.js file? I realize that this would do the trick, but I would have to reposition the menu every time that I added or subtracted copy from the web page.

Is there a way to open a popup menu which is positioned relative to the cursor or to the text to which I have applied the OnMouseOver function?

I Need This Functionality As Well...

Is there anyone who has done this that could share? Thanks!

The menu has a built-in function called popup(). Pass the name of the menu you want to open as a string in the function's first parameter.

will open the menu named "menuname" at its preassigned position.

will open the named menu at the current mouse pointer position.

This should be fine for most text-based or image-based links. If you'd like a little more control, you could try some additional code I wrote to extend the menu's positioning capabilities. You can download the add-on code as well as some examples and docuementation here.

Hope that helps,

Hi, is this tool also capable of using CSS positioning? I want to get rid of the frames in my page, so I want to link the menu-items to a certain ID class which I defined in a seperate CSS file. This means that I only have to maintain one single page which displays all links in a certain area on that page.

Please check
