Bug with pop-outs near right hand edge

Hi -

I have a horizontal menu generated from a DB.

I'm having a problem with a pop-out sub-menu on the right hand side of browser windows < 1024 pixesl:

It appears off to the way right (bringing up scrollbars). Initially, I had _subOffsetTop and _subOffsetLeft set to the default values (+/-), and it would give a JS error on Line 17 or something. Setting the values to 0 removed the error, but caused the current problem.

Why are the menus not appearing up to the left (as they used to in the old version)?

This looks like another nasty bug in the RC versions. :|

Let's hope Andy corrects this soon!

Any one else experiencing problems with menus at the right hand side of the browser?

The strange thing is it is occuring in all browsers for me, and I have no image map. The menus are not adjusting to the left in IE.

Its beyond me why your menu is even appearing where its appearing. You have no top or left coordinates defined and you have not defined position = "relative" because the menu defaults to absolute so it should be appear in the upper left hand corner of your screen if I am correct. Just the fact that you are calling on the menu inside of a cell shouldn't necessarily make it render there by default if I understand correctly.

But anyways, you should move your calls for the milonic_src, mmenudom and mmenuns4 up into the HEAD of your document. You should also move your style definitions up into there as well. The only thing taht should be in the body of your document is that dhtmlmenus file that you have. But I would definetly add position="relative" to that menu declaration, I think it might help.

Thanks Dave.

I've changed it to position=relative, and moved the source scripts and styles up to the header, leaving the menu definitions and call to drawmenu in the body.

Unfortunately, the same error occurs...

A fix is on its way.

Now where else can you get that kind of support, and right from the top, no less?

Let me know if you still have trouble.

Hi again -

Unfortunately another bug seems to have popped up in RC20 (sorry for the pun) - in Firebird/Mozilla, the width of the drop downs is about 3 times wider than it should be - padded on both sides.
