Vertical menu to expand verticaly

Poster: Cirtap
Dated: Thursday November 17 2005 - 6:50:04 GMT

At my site I have two menubars, one horizontal and one vertical.
The problem I have with the vertical one is that when it`s expanding. The submenu expand over the text on the site. I´m, short of space so I have nohere else to place it.

What I rellay want is an menu thats expand verticaly. so the submenu push the other menu downwards.

Anyone haveing a solution for me?

There is a collapsible menu which expands down.

The one you want is the top one, and don't forget to also download the treemenu.js module.

Thx Ruth!

Just what I needed.
Do you if I can set the submenu to close on mouse out?

Hi Parre,

No, it can't be set up that way, the program uses the click function in it to be able to do the treemenu so it has to retain that function. If you set it to singleMaster=true; then it will close when any item is clicked, either something in it since I'm assuming it's going to a new page so it would 'start' over on that page, or when you click its parent again, or if you click any other main menu item. The singleMaster=true; is telling the menu that only one submenu should be open at a time.

As a side note, make sure you have downloaded the newest treemenu.js module. I believe the download treemenu file hasn't been updated yet.

You can get the newest module from the Milonic Bolt-on Modules page The module is about 3/4 of the way down.

Ruth! thx for your support but have I missed some thing?

I did a testsite just to se if and how both menu should work together. There is one problem (up to now) that I cant solve.

The top menu works ok. But when I klick to open a submenu in the collapsmenu it´s always open up the submenus in the collapsmenu´s left side and it will not expand.
It´works just like an ordinary vertical Menu

Tryed to change thetreeOffset but it wont take that.

Are you saying it doesn't open down? I need to see the page to see what's going on

Hi Parre,

This isn't something I can fix. There's no version, license or site information in your program files but I have to assume they are downlevel since your collapse_data.js file works fine on my page with my program files for version 5.735.

Hi Patric,

I'm glad it's working... I like your colors :)

When you get the new menu, if you end up needing to keep it up to date always, you might take a look at the renewal setup. I believe there is a pretty hefty discount to renew if you renew when you reach the 1 year expiration date for support and updates. You should receive an email notice about that when it comes to expriration date on the menu.
