Always Array Sample


Poster: wule
Dated: Saturday July 19 2003 - 17:57:03 BST

Hi!
I downloaded the "Always Array" Sample, but it does not work in my HTML-Editor.
I copied the *.js files to the same folder. I copied the Javascript Source code in the BODY.
Do I have to change the Javascript Source code first???

Please help!!!
Thanks

Where exactly did you find that? I don't see it in the package.

Very confused now. You said earlier...
I downloaded the "Always Array" Sample...

That's what I was asking about.

Nope. Post a URL here so we can see the problem and your code. I'm not usually on-line on the weekends, and there are other folks here who can help as well.

I downloaded the Always Array Sample from... http://www.milonic.co.uk/menu/menusampl ... ampleid=11
And on this page is the javascript-code.

I didn't upload my HOMEPAGE yet. So you cannot see the new html-code.
So i could only post the new code in this forum, but i think it's a little bit too long.

I'm sorry, if i wrote something unclear.

OK, now I see, it's the follow scrolling sample.

It is OK to post your code here if you don't have a URL available. The reason we ask for a URL is so we can see what's happening and all your code and versions in use. Makes it a lot easier to help.

Apology not necessary, but thanks. We're all here to learn, including those of us who help out. Not to worry. :D

And where do I have to put the code that was in the downloaded file?
This one:

addmenu(menu=[
"mainmenu", // Menu Name
20, // Menu Top
"offset=-200", // Menu Left
, // Menu Width
1, // Menu Border Width
"center", // Screen Position
style1, // Properties Array
1, // Always Visible
"left", // Alignment

?????? Why is the <body> and </body> not shown here?
So the javascript is in the <BODY> Tag

Dated: Saturday July 19 2003 - 18:57:16 BST

hääääääää? I wanted to say "< body >"

On the posting screen, just below the text window, you'll see a checkbox marked 'Disable HTML in this post'. Check that when posting HTML.

You can edit that message to do this. Click the 'Edit' button in the upper right corner of your message, wipe out the whole message in the window and then re-paste your original message back in again (just to make sure the Forum software hasn't dropped anything), and Submit. Same message, but cleaned up.

Now it's correct.

OK. Now I got it!
The correct one is only:

<head>
<title></title>
<meta name="author" content="x´S">
<meta name="generator" content="Ulli Meybohms HTML EDITOR">

<body text="#000000" bgcolor="#FFFFFF" link="#FF0000" alink="#FF0000" vlink="#FF0000">

I downloaded the "Always Array" Sample, but it does not work in my HTML-Editor.

Keep in mind that many editors cannot show the menu themselves. It needs to be on a server to actually see it. Any way you can get it posted?


Poster: wule

My HTML-Editor can show it. To see the correct form look at my last reply. Or what do you mean with "Can you get it posted?" ?

Your very first message in this thread said what I quoted...
...it does not work in my HTML-Editor.

As for posted, can you get this on a server somewhere so we can see what's happening. I haven't seen anything wrong in the code so far.

But I already found my mistake. You can have a look on some replies before.
