View Full Version : Force menu to drop down

02-06-2010, 02:16 PM
1) Script Title: AnyLink Drop Down Menu v2.0

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

3) Describe problem:

This drop down script is awesome. I am a newbie at web design and was able to get this script to work. It was well written and documented.

The problem I am having is when the menu does not have enough room it goes up instead of down. I would not care but a flash document is directly above and so it can't go up either. If I scroll the page down then it drops down and looks awesome.

My question is there anyway to force it to go down and cause the page to autoscroll.

To get a feel for what I am talking about go to http://saminskeep.com

the menu item sponsors is the one that has the drop down.

Thanks in advance for any advise.

To stop the menu from dropping up, inside the .js file, try commenting out the below lines (new code in red):

if (posy+this.dimensions.dropmenuh>this.dimensions.docscrolly+this.dimensions.docheight){ //drop up instead?
posy=Math.max(posy-this.dimensions.dropmenuh - (menu.orientation=="lr"? -this.dimensions.anchorh : this.dimensions.anchorh), this.dimensions.docscrolly) //position above anchor or window's top edge
