The Clock script keypress script have me baffled.

I have followed all the procedures as I understand them for the menuclock.js and keypress.js but I am baffled as to how you declare where on the menu the clock should display, and weather the keypress should work without having to have your mouse over the menu.

first I have placed the following on my web page as I have my menu in a table.:

<script type="text/javascript" src="/Cintinel/faq/XPmenu/menuclock.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="/Cintinel/faq/ms-powerpoint/Menu_data.js"></script>
<script src="/Cintinel/faq/XPmenu/keypress.js" type=text/javascript></script>
<script src="/Cintinel/faq/XPmenu/tooltips.js" type=text/javascript></script>

Q1. Am I supposed to write something in in the Menu_dat.js file to display the clock. I tried, aI("src=/Cintinel/faq/XPmenu/menuclock.js"); but this created an error on role over.

Q2. Is it an aI stament that I use to put the clock where I want it.

Q3. can the clock be placed on the HTML page and not in the menu?

I am able to get this to work, but only if the mouse is over the menu.

Q1. Should you be able to TAB around as in windows.

Q2. can you assign keysrokes to menus. The only thing that worked for me was up-down-left-right arrows on the keyboard.[/code]

Here's a demo of the Clock Module

1. The demo will show you how to code it in the aI.

2. If you want it someplace else on the page outside the menu, you really do it by creating a separate menu that is placed relatively i.e. in a table. So, you'd create the menu [not another file, just a menu in your existing menu_data.js file] Then you would cut it out of the menu_data.js and place it in the table like you do for a main menu placed in a table. It will use the menuclock.js file the call for which you have put up with the other menu program files.

3. The keypress works like a keypress. So, let's say you have the menu on your page with the keypress. When you start the tab, it will start with the first link in your browser, i.e. the url in the address bar. At least that's how it works for me when I go to the Milonic site and hit the tab. I'm not much up on the keypress, I don't use it. I thought it was just something to make the menu work when someone used the tab to navigate their page.

Thanks Ruth
the clock info looks like it is exactly what I am looking for.
I searched everywhere for that info

As far as the keypress goes, If I go to the milonic home page and click tab on my keyboard, then I am jumped to the various links on the page. My up and down arrows, scroll the page, but nothing activates the menu.
If I hover my mouse over the menu, then use my arrow keys, they allow me to navigate the menu which is what you realy need for accessability.

I noticed there is also a bug on the milonic home menu. If you hover your mouse over home, then use the down arrow on your keyboard, you get a javascript error.

Hi Scott,

There's a link to all demos on the main site, under support / tech support docs. Not all of them are actually modules from Milonic, some of the demos are of functions created to work with the menu to do different things.
