Hi,

I think John's point is that we often need to see the page and be able to see its underlying code to figure out why the menu or the page is doing something. A screen capture, although it shows the visual result of a problem, does not let us see the code that generates the page or the menu. It is possible for you to post a test page that is publicly accessible?

Cheers,

Kevin

In your global styles:

subimageposition="left";

thanks but i still have put the subimage position ;)

here is my script :

_menuCloseDelay=350 // The time delay for menus to remain visible on mouse out
_menuOpenDelay=125 // The time delay before menus open on mouse over
_subOffsetTop=5 // Sub menu top offset
_subOffsetLeft=-5 // Sub menu left offset

with(menuStyle=new mm_style()){
onbgcolor="#cc0000";
oncolor="#ffffff";
offbgcolor="#ffffff";
offcolor="#cc0000";
bordercolor="#cc0000";
borderstyle="solid";
borderwidth=1;
separatorcolor="#cc0000";
separatorsize="0";
padding=0;
fontsize="10";
fontstyle="normal";
fontfamily="Arial";
pagecolor="black";
pagebgcolor="#ffffff";
headercolor="#000000";
headerbgcolor="#ffffff";
subimage="/menu/arrow.gif";
subimagepadding="0";
subimageposition="right";
overfilter="blinds(bands=1,direction=right,duration=0.2);Alpha(opacity=90)";
outfilter="blinds(bands=1,direction=left,duration=0.3);Alpha(opacity=75)";
}

with(milonic=new menuname("database")){
style=menuStyle;
aI("text= Coasters;url=../db/search_coasters.asp;");
aI("text= Towers;url=../db/search_towers.asp;");
aI("text= Parcs;url=../db/search_parks.asp;");
aI("text= Accidents;url=../db/accidents.asp;");
aI("text= Records;showmenu=records;");
aI("text= Nouveautés;showmenu=nouveautes;");
}
with(milonic=new menuname("records")){
style=menuStyle;
aI("text= Records Coasters;url=../db/records_coasters.asp;");
aI("text= Records Towers;url=../db/records_towers.asp;");
aI("text= Records Parcs;url=../db/records_parks.asp;");
}

...

drawMenus();

so i don't know where is the problem because i put align right

Hi Frenzy,

The setting of subimageposition would not account for the position of the subimage arrow that we see in your screen capture... setting subimageposition="left"; would actually move the arrow all the way to the left of the menu item (i.e., on the left side of the text). Setting subimageposition="right"; isn't necessary, because that is the default setting... you'd get the same result even if you took that line completely out of the style. There's something else going on and I can't see it in the menu code you posted... Plus, you've only posted part of your menu code, as there is no "main" menu present in what you posted, so I have no idea how your main menu (where we see the problem in your screen capture) is defined. Right now, we can only see a very small part of the picture, which doesn't indicate the problem.

the main menu is in my template, include in a table :

<HEAD>
<SCRIPT language=JavaScript src="menu/milonic_src.js" type=text/javascript></SCRIPT>
<script language=JavaScript>
if(ns4)_d.write("<scr"+"ipt language=JavaScript src=menu/mmenuns4.js><\/scr"+"ipt>");
else _d.write("<scr"+"ipt language=JavaScript src=menu/mmenudom.js><\/scr"+"ipt>");
</script>
<SCRIPT language=JavaScript src="menu/menu_data.js" type=text/javascript></SCRIPT>
</HEAD>

<BODY>
<table width="125" border="0" cellpadding="2" cellspacing="0">
<tr>
<td>
<script>
with(milonic=new menuname("coastergen")){
style=menuStyle;
top=10;
left=10;
alwaysvisible=1;
orientation="vertical";
position="relative";
menuwidth="119";
aI("text=&nbsp;Accueil;url=../default.asp;");
aI("text=&nbsp;News;url=../news/news.asp;");
aI("text=&nbsp;Database;showmenu=database;");
aI("text=&nbsp;Dictionnaires;showmenu=dictionnaires;");
aI("text=&nbsp;Photos;url=../gallery/gallery.asp;");
aI("text=&nbsp;Vidéos;url=../videos/videos.asp;");
aI("text=&nbsp;Coaster Sims;showmenu=coastersims;");
aI("text=&nbsp;Coaster Games;showmenu=coastergames;");
aI("text=&nbsp;Membres;showmenu=members;");
aI("text=&nbsp;Forums;url=../forums/forums.asp;");
aI("text=&nbsp;Chat;url=../chat/chat.asp;");
aI("text=&nbsp;Shopping;url=../shop/shop.asp;");
aI("text=&nbsp;Guestbook;showmenu=guestbook;");
aI("text=&nbsp;Liens;showmenu=links;");
aI("text=&nbsp;Faq;url=../faq/faq.asp;");
aI("text=&nbsp;Partenaires;url=../partners/partners.asp;");
aI("text=&nbsp;A propos;showmenu=about;");
aI("text=&nbsp;Contact;showmenu=contact;");
}
drawMenus();
</script>
</td>
</tr>
</table>
</BODY>

Hi Frenzy,

Replace menuwidth="119"; with itemwidth="119";... menuwidth applies best to horizontal menus; itemwidth can be used in a vertical menu to set the width of the menu.

That should do the trick.
