Hi all,

I have a very interesting challenge encountered.
I need a DHTML menu

Where the first level needs to be able to scroll left and right, while the drop down menu needs to be a vertical scrolling submenu.

Also need to assure that the following is covered.

- works with frame
- cross browser compatible especially Netscape

I was wondering anyone have any experience on this.

Appreciate all help ! Thank you

Well, I don't think you can do what you want unless you can set up a function for it. The menu automatically wraps text. For example, let's say you have MY TEXT HERE as the text in the menu item, and the item isn't wide enough for that, then the text would wrap, the menu would expand in height.

I was thinking about what you want, and the only thing that comes to mind is if you could perhaps get a text scroll function and call it in the menu item. I'd think you'd have to have it scroll when you have offfunction, and stop with the onfunction. I tried looking for a horizontal text scroll and I did find some doing a search but I don't know anything about functions so I wouldn't know if you could use them or not.

I think what you are looking for is something like this: However I have been having problems getting the offfunction to fire properly on the navigation menus to get the horizontal menu to stop scrolling. But if you were to use another icon or something for the scroll functions instead of another menu, it would work.

Hi jswick,

Thanks for the post. I can't find my page now, but I was working on this using that function you posted. Thanks for that :)

I did use icons outside the menu and you're right, it doesn't have the offfunction problem since it's not coming from a menu item. But, I think that has been fixed in the later menu versions, you're down a few levels.
