Original, practical CSS codes and examples such as CSS menus for your site.
Step 1: Insert the below CSS and script into the HEAD section of your page:
The CSS above allows you to control all visual aspects of the tab menu and content in one central location. A variable within the DHTML script also lets you specify which tab and content should be initially selected when the page loads.
Step 2: Add the below HTML to where you wish the tab menu to appear on the page:
The code of Step 2 contains the plain HTML that will render the menu. Structurally it is broken up into two parts:
1) The menu tabs:
<div id="ddtabs" class="basictab">
Each tab is implemented as a list link. Here the first 3 tabs have a sub content associated with them, which you specify by inserting the "onMouseover..." code inside the links' A tag. Read on for more info.
2) The menu contents:
Following the tabs is a DIV that contains the sub contents associated with select tabs above:
<DIV id="tabcontentcontainer"> <div id="sc1" class="tabcontent"> 2nd level content 1 here. </div> <div id="sc2" class="tabcontent"> 2nd level content 2 here. </div> </DIV>
Each sub content is defined by wrapping it inside a DIV with an arbitrary but unique id (ie: sc1), in which this ID should match up with that specified in the "OnMouseover..." code of the tab link above:
<div id="sc1" class="tabcontent"> 2nd level content 1 here. </div>
And that's it!
