Menu Background Color incorrect


Poster: IndigoTide
Dated: Friday August 22 2003 - 15:13:09 BST

I am trying to set up a menu with all items being linked to html pages and several levels of sub menus. The top level is fine but the 2nd-level sub menu items with 3rd-level sub menus are showing up with a white background color instead of the tan I was using at this level. The mouse over color is not working either.

The second level style has all the same attributes as the top style.

Please let me know what I’m doing wrong.

:?:

Just found one more clue on the second level I am using :

subimage="images/arrow.gif";
subimagepadding="2";

When I remove these it works OK?

Tough to say without actually seeing it....got a URL? Sounds like your styles may be fishy.

Here's the code

The page is not available to the extranet yet. So here is the code:


effect="fade(duration=0.3);Shadow(color='#373535', Direction=135, Strength=4)";

_menuCloseDelay=500;
_menuOpenDelay=150;
_scrollAmount=3;
_scrollDelay=20;
_followSpeed=5;
_followRate=40;
_subOffsetTop=0;
_subOffsetLeft=0;

with(MainMenuStyle=new mm_style()){
onbgcolor="#e9e9bb";
oncolor="#373535";
offbgcolor="#a47d56";
offcolor="#ffffff";
bordercolor="#a47d56";
borderstyle="solid";
borderwidth=1;
fontsize=11;
fontstyle="normal";
fontweight="bold";
fontfamily="verdana,arial,helvetica";
padding=6;
seperatorcolor="red";
seperatorsize=5;
seperatorpadding=5;
}

with(SubMenuStyle=new mm_style()){
onbgcolor="#e9e9bb";
oncolor="#373535";
offbgcolor="#cfcfa2";
offcolor="#373535";
bordercolor="#ffffff";
borderstyle="solid";
borderwidth=1;
fontsize=10;
fontstyle="normal";
fontweight="normal";
fontfamily="verdana,arial,helvetica";
padding=5;
separatorcolor="#ffffff";
separatorsize=1;
overfilter=effect;
subimage="images/arrow.gif";
subimagepadding="2";
}

// sample with menu images
// aI("showmenu=Links;image=images/links.gif;overimage=images/links_over.gif;");
with(milonic=new menuname("MainMenu")){
top=96;
left=7;
style=MainMenuStyle;
alwaysvisible=1;
alignment="left";
orientation="horizontal";
aI("text=About Amware;url=About.asp;showmenu=AboutMenu;status=Find out more about Amware corporation");
aI("text=Services;showmenu=ServiceMenu;");

aI("text=FAQs;url=FAQs.asp;");
aI("text=Resources;showmenu=ResourceMenu;");
aI("text=Careers __at__ Amware;url=Careers.asp;");
}

with(milonic=new menuname("AboutMenu")){

aI("text=Facility Overview;showmenu=FacOverMenu;url=FacOverview.asp;");
}

with(milonic=new menuname("FacOverMenu")){
style=SubMenuStyle;
aI("text=Map;url=Map.asp;");
aI("text=Management;url=FacMgmt.asp;");
aI("text=Contact Info;url=FacContact.asp;");
}

with(milonic=new menuname("ResourceMenu")){

aI("text=Links;url=Links.asp;");
aI("text=White Papers;url=WhitePapers.asp;");
aI("text=Newsletter;url=Newsletter.asp;");
aI("text=Press Releases;url=Press.asp;");
}

drawMenus();

Additional Clue

I narrowed it down, it only happens when the Sub Images parms are there in the submenu style:

subimage="images/arrow.gif";
subimagepadding="2";


Poster: Hergio

subimagepadding="2";
should be subimagepadding=2;
try that, I think thats it. Make sure any place you reference JUST a number, no quotes, if there is letters, symbols, of any other type than a number, then use the quotes.

ADDITION: NICE CATCH ON THAT SPELLING JOHN! :D

Good Idea, but...

Good Idea, but it did not make any difference. I even took the subpadding out and it still showed up with a white background.

I see 3 problems right away (actually 1 problem 3 times). In your MainMenuStyle you have...

Code: Select all

seperatorcolor="red";
seperatorsize=5;
seperatorpadding=5;

A trip to the dictionary is in order here :roll: Try separator. I suspect these parameters are being ignored entirely, and am not sure what else might happen.

That did the Trick!

:) That did it. It's amazing to me how things work when they are spelled correctly. This is one of my more frequent problems.

THANKS TO ALL,

Actually I usually have trouble with that same word (not to mention many others :!: ). That's why I "cheat" and use good ol' copy/paste to get it right. This assumes, of course, we're c/p from 'separator', and not 'seperator' :lol:
