strange menu loading behavior

hi all,

first this is a great menu. thanks to milonic!

now onto my issue.

take a look at my site:

you will see that the menu very quickly loads to the very left before settling down within the table in the center of the page.

i was wondering how that might be avoided (i.e., just load it where it's supposed to be, even if it takes longer)?

thanks for any help! :D

This, as you have probably assumed is because of the PlaceMenu() function.

The reason it waits is because Tables need to generated fully before they are rendered to the screen and it's at this point only that the menu system knows where the menu should go.

What I suggest is try setting a Top and a Left value for the menu as close as you can get to where the menu will be placed.

Better sill try and get your menu positioned properly without the use of PlaceMenu() with a combination of Screen Position and offsets.

Thanks, Andy! I forgot I had fixed the width after centering the page (I had thought of using percentages instead) so that works great!

Thanks for a great script!
