View Full Version : Dhtml Menu at right... WANTED :)

08-06-2006, 01:34 AM

I'm looking for a Dhtml Menu and HV Menu v5.5 could be a good one... but I need to place the Menu to the right of the page and this script offers a position from left side only!
I would like to build a full page Web site (100% main frame), thus I can't use a "large" value about the left position to force it to the right, because the page width will change according to the screen resolution... I have to use a position value from right only!

For example, check the menu from ArtLogic Web site (http://www.artlogic.com/)... nice!
This menu is from ypSlideOutMenusC (an OpenSource project), but I meet another problem with it... I need submenu and it doesn't offer this option :(

I've to be honest with you, I'm really not a Web programmer, I know to integrate some scripts inside page, but no more!
DynamicDrive is a fabulous tresor for people like me :)

If someone can help me to upgrade this script to be able to set from the right page side... you are Welcome!

Thanks a lot ;)

1) Script Title:
HV Menu v5.5
Jim's DHTML Menu V5.7

2) Script URL (on DD):

3) Describe problem:
Describe above.

With HV, you can do something like so, at the top of exmplmenu_var.js insert this function like so:

* (c) Ger Versluis 2000 version 5.411 24 December 2001 (updated Jan 31st, 2003 by Dynamic Drive for Opera7)
* For info write to menus@burmees.nl *
* You may remove all comments for faster loading *

function ietruebody(){
return (document.compatMode && document.compatMode!="BackCompat")? document.documentElement : document.body;

var NoOffFirstLineMenus=5; // Number of first level items

Then a little ways down, for the variable "StartLeft' do something like this:

var StartLeft=window.innerWidth?window.innerWidth-230:ietruebody().clientWidth-230;

where 230 is the number of pixels from the right that you want the menu to appear. It should be at least the actual width of the menu.

Thanks jscheuer1 for your help :)
I've be able to set this menu via your script!

But I saw that HV Menu doesn't offer CSS settings :(
I can't use different colors between/each menus and submenus!

Thus I'm looking for a great Dhtml Menu (non-commercial), including multi-level menus and CSS settings... which can be positioned/set from the right of the page... like on ArtLogic Web site (http://www.artlogic.com/).

If you know a good one ir if another user knows a good one... please let me know!

Thanks a lot ;)

HV will allow you to put <span></span> and probably other elements into its configuration fields. Once you've done that, you can add style, id's and/or classes to the items. About the same amount of work as what you are talking about but, less organized. There are tons of multilevel menus here at DD, I just noticed a few new ones added the other day (see the top of the list at the link below). I can't keep track of all the features:
