View Full Version : Omni Slide Menu Question

03-11-2007, 03:25 AM
1) Script Title: Omni Slide

2) Script URL (on DD): http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex1/omnislide/index.htm

3) Describe problem: Sorry- I've not been able to figure this out myself after lots of trial and error. How do you disable any given menu? I'd like to use just the left hand menu.

In menuItems.js; you can either delete or comment out the other menus that you do not want to use (by adding /* before, and */ after the selection you made). An example would be the following:

menu[1] = {
id:'menu1', //use unique quoted id (quoted) REQUIRED!!
fontsize:'100%', // express as percentage with the % sign
linkheight:22 , // linked horizontal cells height
hdingwidth:210 , // heading - non linked horizontal cells width
// Finished configuration. Use default values for all other settings for this particular menu (menu[1]) ///

menuItems:[ // REQUIRED!!
//[name, link, target, colspan, endrow?] - leave 'link' and 'target' blank to make a header
["Menu"], //create header

Simply take out the part in red (or comment it out), and change the part in blue to the first number of the menu array.

Hope this helps.
