I have searched this forum for a script to build up the Menu from a DB. I have found some .asp related scripts but no .php, does someone knows where I can find this, or not then I will develop this one. :)

Yes, it is possible (which is why I moved your post). I'm not a .php person, but I'm sure a lot of folks will jump in and help you with this.

Your search probably produced hints, but nothing complete, I would appreciate anything you can produce on php & mysql :D

Thank you!

Hints, yes, but nothing complete. I know folks have done it (I've got ColdFusion driving one of mine), and they'll be around.

This is on the to-do list but as it seems to get bigger rather than smaller could be a while off.

You are more than welcome to build one but I don't see the point in having lots of these floating around. One definitive script should do all.

How's your knowledge of PHP Classes?

I have done a very large menu (over 1700 items) using PHP. It isn't difficult really.

All you need to do is create a MySQL query that returns your data, then output it via php in the correct format for the menu to use. Then instead of menu_data.js, point your script to menu_data.php.

All goes smoothly for me.

Here is a code snippet: (be aware I am not a programmer, so I don't know anything about classes) :)

$sql="select * from $table where name like '$letter%' order by name";
$menu_data.="with(milonic=new menuname(\"s$letter\")){\r\n itemwidth=300;\r\n borderwidth=1;\r\n style=style1;\r\n alignment='left';\r\n top=150;\r\n overflow='scroll';\n";

$result = db_query($sql);

   while ($record = get_record($result))
      $menu_data.= "aI('text=<font size=2><b>$name - $ext</b></font><br>$roomapt<br>Home - $homeaddy, $city $state $zip<br>$homephone<br>$email;separatorsize=1;align=left')\n";
   $menu_data.="\n } \n";

                echo $menu_data;

Hope that helps.
