Hidding a menu


Poster: gporterfield

I am working on a new site design. Part of my concept includes the need to hide the menu (visible = false) at some times. (Don't ask why.) Of course, I will "unhide" the menu later on.

I've tried a few variations of "menu0.visible = false;" but no success. Any suggestions on how to achieve this? :?:

TIA,
George

try this

mn=getMenuByName("menuname")
menuobject=gmobj("menu"+mn)
menuobject.style.visibility="hidden"

Change "hidden" to "visible" to show it again

Cheers
Andy

ps: This should work in verson 3 and version 4

Thanks Andy.

Your suggetion works great in IE, but NS4 complains:
menuobject.style has no properties.

Now I should be able to figure out the syntax difference for NS4, but it is escaping me right now.

TIA,
George

Oh yeah, forgot about him

Try this

mn=getMenuByName("menuname")
menuobject=gmobj("menu"+mn)
if("ns4)
{
menuobject.visibility="hide"
}
else
{
menuobject.style.visibility="hidden"
}

Thanks Andy. Should have been able to figure out that syntax myself, but yesterday was not a good day for thinking.

:D

After "un"hidding, how to make "alwayvisible&

OK, in much the same manner, is also possible to change the value of the "alwaysvisible" attribute?

I found a flag for each menu that is set when its declared as alwaysvisible. I was able to edit it dynamically (programmaticaly) but it began giving me errors. There seems to be more to it than just the menu[8] flag. (i think that was where i found it)
