Fully customizable slide out menu
I have looked all over for something like that and can't find it. Is there any script out there where I can use my own images or links in a table for the actual menu and when I mouseover any one of them a slide out menu would appear that I can make the same color and the same font as the buttons I am using?

Here is an example of what the menu wil look like.

C'mon nobody has any ideas? Maybe I didn't explain exactly what I want.
Maybe this'll help.
I need a menu like this one: http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex1/popit.htm but I need the popup to go to a fixed area beside the link instead of where the mouse happens to be. I was able to get that one to work with my menu but I'd rather it go to a specific spot.

Hopefully someone can help.

Why not try one of the menus that does that like:

would the first one work with any link like the pop-it menu?

Both of the above mentioned menus allow you to have sub menus for each main item. You don't need to add another script.

You're not listening to what I'm saying. I don't want that white background I want it too look exactly like the menu I posted but for one of the links to have a sub-menu.

Configure it.

so your saying I can configure it to look exactly like the rest of the menu without interfering with it?

You should be able to configure one, the other, or both menus I mentioned to look like what you want without additional scripts. The idea I'm not conveying as well as I might is this:

Your example looks cool but, doesn't do what you want. You can configure one of these menus to look like your example and they already do what you want and more.

The real trick for you is, reading the instructions and configuration guidelines and finding a road to the appearance you desire. This is a path followed by countless site developers in utilizing Dynamic Drive scripts.

Off the top of my head, I recall Jim's menu allows you to make it vertical and to use images in place of text for items and sub items. I think the HV menu I mentioned does too but, I am not certain. In any case, the graphics are not so involved, you could get the same look with either of these menus just using elements, text and style.

I have a site that currently uses dynamic slide fx 6.5 for the main nav menu, but it gets jittery when i put a lot of links in it, so i am switching navigation to a mouse over image swap using an <a> tag without an href, and the "any link vertical on the images heres the html link by itself, and just put the anylink code where it needs to be (you can use images, text, or whatever you want as far as I can tell), sorry to say, I had to make it in front page, btw its my student work project for college

<a onMouseover="dropdownmenu(this, event, menu1, '165px')" onMouseout="delayhidemenu()"><img border="0"
id="crp_link" src="images/links/crp_link.jpg"
alt="Choose a Career Related Program" fp-style="fp-btn: Border Bottom 1" fp-title="crp image link"
onmouseup="FP_swapImg(0,0,/*id*/'crp_link',/*url*/'images/links/crp_link.jpg')" width="275" height="50"></a>
