View Full Version : Drop Menu with Background Color

08-31-2010, 04:09 PM
Hello, I have the following code:

<div class="webformgen label
<label for="General Library Info" class="spacer">General Library Info</label>
<form id="quicklinks" name="quicklinks" action="">
<select name="quicklinkitem" onchange="openWin(quicklinkitem.value)">

<option value="http://jaxpubliclibrary.org/program.calendar/main.html">About the Library</option>

<option value="http://jaxpubliclibrary.org/program.calendar/ayl.html">Locations and Hours</option>

<option value="http://jaxpubliclibrary.org/program.calendar/jb.html">Search Library Catalog</option>

<option value="http://jaxpubliclibrary.org/program.calendar/ns.html">Library Cards and Services</option>

<option value="http://jaxpubliclibrary.org/program.calendar/eb.html">Meeting Rooms</option>

<option value="http://jaxpubliclibrary.org/program.calendar/gb.html">Programs and Events</option>

<option value="http://jaxpubliclibrary.org/program.calendar/du.html">Job Opportunities</option>

<option value="http://jaxpubliclibrary.org/program.calendar/kr.html">Support Your Library</option>

<option value="http://jaxpubliclibrary.org/program.calendar/max.html">Volunteer!</option>

<option value="http://jaxpubliclibrary.org/program.calendar/mh.html">My Account</option>



The style sheet:
.webformgen label {float:left; width:175px; font-weight:bold; text-transform:uppercase; margin-bottom:0; margin-left:10px;}

How do I make the background of the drop down a color instead of white? I've tried a lot of things but have not been successful.

Thank you, Elbee

Hi Elbee, if you could post a link to your page online it would be much easier to help.

Thanks for responding!


We want to eliminate the three menus on the left and make them drop down menus at the top.

Thanks again, Elbee

For that you would need a multilevel drop down menu. There are a lot of different menus on dynanicdrive that you could use.

You can find them here:

Here is an example of a menu that is quite nice:

You have a lot of submenu links so it is going to take some work coding it.
