I'm just looking for a very fast menu

Hi all,

I'm trying to make the milonic menu as fast as possible for my users. I don't want any "shadow effect", "follow lag" or anything like this, even it's "beautiful" : I want fast and fast and fast !

I'm not very satisfied with what I did. Is it possible to make it faster than I did ? Please find below the begin of my menu data file :

(Please not that I'll buy a license if the result seems ok)

Code: Select all

_menuCloseDelay=250           // The time delay for menus to remain visible on mouse out, 250 default
_menuOpenDelay=0            // The time delay before menus open on mouse over
_followSpeed=5000                // Follow scrolling speed
_followRate=5000                // Follow scrolling Rate
_subOffsetTop=3              // Sub menu top offset
_subOffsetLeft=5            // Sub menu left offset
_scrollAmount=1               // Only needed for Netscape 4.x
_scrollDelay=1               // Only needed for Netcsape 4.x


with(menuStyle=new mm_style()){
valign="center";
align="left";
onbgcolor="#FFFFFF";
oncolor="#FFFFFF";
offbgcolor="#FFFFFF"; // Background cells color
offcolor="#FFFFFF"; // Font color
bordercolor="#FFFFFF";
borderstyle="solid";
borderwidth=1;
separatorcolor="#FFFFFF";
separatorsize="1";
padding=5;
fontsize="8pt";
fontstyle="normal";
fontfamily="Verdana, Tahoma, Arial";
pagecolor="black";
pagebgcolor="#FFFFFF"; // Background selected item
headercolor="#000000";
headerbgcolor="#ffffff";
subimage="images/arrow.gif";
subimagepadding="2";
overfilter="Fade(duration=0.1);Alpha(opacity=100);Shadow(color='#777777', Direction=135, Strength=3)";
outfilter="randomdissolve(duration=0.0)";
}

with(milonic=new menuname("Main Menu")){
//menuwidth="100%";
//menualign="center";
style=menuStyle;
screenposition="center";
alwaysvisible=1;
orientation="horizontal";

That's fine, and you came to the right place (this is a fast system), but...

You say you "don't want any shadow effect", but you left that code in place...

Code: Select all

overfilter="Fade(duration=0.1);Alpha(opacity=100);Shadow(color='#777777', Direction=135, Strength=3)";
outfilter="randomdissolve(duration=0.0)";

Remove those lines.

Also, no "follow lag". From the snip you've posted (always post a URL, as requested), it does not appear you are using followscroll. Restore these items as they were (although it shouldn't matter)...

Code: Select all

_followSpeed=5000
_followRate=5000
_scrollAmount=1
_scrollDelay=1


I'm not sure how you're going to use it, however, given you have everything white!
