Hi, trying to get the menu to work in a table. Yes I've read about it on the site and thought I had followed the directions.

I'm cross-eyed looking for this problem and you expert assistance would be appreciated.

Thank you

Well, uncross the eyes :!: This is something I have done a number of times, so don't feel too bad. Take a look at this line in your main menu

Code: Select all

with(milonic=new menuname("Mainmenu")){
style=menuStyle;
The only problem is that there is no menuStyle defined in the vl_menu_data.js file.

Ummm, I disagree becuase I think this is the defined style:



Code: Select all

with(horizStyle=new mm_style()){
styleid=1;
bordercolor="#FFFFFF";
borderstyle="solid";
borderwidth=0;
fontfamily="tahoma, arial";
fontsize="71%";
fontstyle="normal";
headerbgcolor="#FFFFFF";
headerborder=0;
headercolor="#EDEDED";
overfilter="Fade(duration=0.2);Alpha(opacity=100);Shadow(color='#777777', Direction=135, Strength=5)";
outfilter="randomdissolve(duration=0.3)"
screenposition="center"
bgimage="http://www.vancouverlacrosse.org/hjs/1x16-nav.gif"
offcolor="#FFFFFF";
onbgcolor="#EDEDED";
onborder="1px solid #333333";
oncolor="#FFFFFF";
onsubimage="http://www.vancouverlacrosse.org/hjs/on_downboxed.gif";
overbgimage="http://www.vancouverlacrosse.org/hjs/backon_beige.gif";
padding=6;
pagebgcolor="#FFFFFF";
pagecolor="#FFFFFF";
pageimage="http://www.vancouverlacrosse.org/hjs/db_red.gif";
separatoralign="right";
separatorcolor="#0053A2";
separatorsize="1";
separatorwidth="85%";

}


Isn't it Ruth ?

Hi Listener,

I hope Ruth doesn't mind me jumping in. But I'm awake and this is a quick one:

Tis true... it is a defined style, but alas, not the defined style. ;) Your style is named horizStyle, but your menu is looking for a style named menuStyle. You gotta fix the name in one place or the other so that they are the same.

Cheers,

Kevin

Thank you both I feel like a bit of a dunce just now but I'm happier. I do have a couple of more issues, to do with the style but not the error since that's now solved - thank you again. Should I start a new thread or carry on?

In the hope I may ask here ....

Source page: http://www.vancouverlacrosse.org/template.asp

Is there a way to establish a horizontal menu margin between the vertical spacers and the text?

And is there a way to make the menu auto fill the available cell space which is 718 pixels.

Lastly, I hope what setting controls how fast a submenu closes?
Example on source page given, Information, More Information (sub menu) takes a long time to close.

Thank you.

Add this to the horizontal menu style definition:

Code: Select all

rawcss="padding:1px 3px 1px 3px";
That will make the padding in the item 1px at the top and bottom as you now have it, and 3px at right and left which will of course increase the space to the right and left of the separator.

Try adding itemwidth=78; in the main menu on the page, just below position="relative";

You have keepalive=1; set in the style definitions, remove that.

The site looks really nice.

Thank you and your a wonder. Each of your suggestions worked to perfection. Once again thank you and Keith for your help.

I will most assuredly use this product in other design projects as they come up.
