1) Script Title: AnyLink Vertical Menu

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

3) Describe problem: Not a problem so much, but we would like to see the drop-out menus sit side by side vs. stacked on top of each other.

Example:
Button 1 --> My Link #1 | My Link #2 | My Link #3

What do we need to change to make that happen?

It mainly comes down to just editing the CSS for the drop down DIV ("#dropmenudiv") to float left. You must also remove the default inline width CSS property within the DIV inside the script:


document.write('<div id="dropmenudiv" style="visibility:hidden;" onMouseover="clearhidemenu()" onMouseout="dynamichide(event)"></div>')

Here's an example of how the result may look. You may need to change a few other things to get it the way you want it to look:


<style type="text/css">

#dropmenudiv{
position:absolute;
background-color: #E3FFB0;
border:1px solid black;
border-width: 1px 0 0 1px;
font:normal 12px Verdana;
line-height:18px;
z-index:100;
overflow: hidden;
}

#dropmenudiv a{
display: block;
float: left;
text-indent: 3px;
border-bottom: 1px solid black;
border-right: 1px solid black;
padding: 1px 0;
padding-right: 5px;
text-decoration: none;
font-weight: bold;
}

#dropmenudiv a:hover{ /*hover background color*/
background-color: #C7FF5E;
}

/* Sample CSS definition for the example list. Remove if desired */
.navlist li {
list-style-type: square;
width: 135px;
background-color: #FFFFB9;
}

</style>


<script type="text/javascript">

I totally appreciate your input!

I cut the sample script you posted and I receive an error.

The scripts are in the right area, the first two in the <head> and the last in the <body>.

When I try to use to use the menu it errors with:

Line 98, Character 1, error invalid argument

Any ideas?

Here is the page set up with only the sample code you posted which throws up an error as described in the previous post:
http://www.mexicoxpatz.com/a.htm

Here it is with our own code, there is no error, but you can see the menus are not side by side:

Ah yes, an oversight in my code. Here is the corrected code in its entirety:


<style type="text/css">

#dropmenudiv{
position:absolute;
background-color: #E3FFB0;
border:1px solid black;
border-width: 1px 0 0 1px;
font:normal 12px Verdana;
line-height:18px;
z-index:100;
overflow: hidden;
}

#dropmenudiv a{
display: block;
float: left;
text-indent: 3px;
border-bottom: 1px solid black;
border-right: 1px solid black;
padding: 1px 0;
padding-right: 5px;
text-decoration: none;
font-weight: bold;
}

#dropmenudiv a:hover{ /*hover background color*/
background-color: #C7FF5E;
}

/* Sample CSS definition for the example list. Remove if desired */
.navlist li {
list-style-type: square;
width: 135px;
background-color: #FFFFB9;
}

</style>
