View Full Version : Jim's DHTML Menu, Font issue

09-08-2004, 02:18 PM
I have been messing around some with the DHTML Menu v5.7 and I truly love it. But I have one problem. On the website I'm producing I'm using font face "Trebuchet MS" and when trying to use it with your menu it ****s up in IE6 (prob all IE)

The bottom border disappears in the main horizontal menu and the horizontal borders disappears in the submenus.

tried altering the .js files with this.fontFace = "trebuchet ms"; but no luck

Do you think it's possible to fix this?

Would love an answer

Hey mindweaver,

File config.js

menus[0] = new menu(22, "horizontal", 160, 10, -2, -2, "#CACAFF", "#0000A0", "Trebuchet MS", 9,
"bold", "bold", "black", "white", 1, "gray", 2, "rollover:images/tri-down1.gif:images/tri-down2.gif", false, true, true, true, 12, true, 4, 4, "black");
menus[0].addItem("http://www.dynamicdrive.com", "", 100, "center", "Home", 0);
menus[0].addItem("#", "", 120, "center", "Web Building", 1);
menus[0].addItem("#", "", 100, "center", "News", 2);
menus[0].addItem("#", "", 110, "center", "Search", 4);

No probs if you only change this, i'm using Internet Explorer 6 (Win XP Service Pack 2).

Nope it doesn't work. IE6, winxp sp1

works fine in mozilla firefox 0.9.3.

This is how it looks with:
menus[0] = new menu(18, "horizontal", -1, 70, -1, -1, "#898E8E", "#69AD83", "Trebuchet MS", 8,
"normal", "normal", "#FFFFFF", "#FFFFFF", 1, "#FFFFFF", 1, "", false, true, true, false, 6, false, 4, 4, "black");


And this is how it looks with:

menus[0] = new menu(18, "horizontal", -1, 70, -1, -1, "#898E8E", "#69AD83", "Arial", 8,
"normal", "normal", "#FFFFFF", "#FFFFFF", 1, "#FFFFFF", 1, "", false, true, true, false, 6, false, 4, 4, "black");


At first I thought it was the space in "Trebuchet MS" but I have tried with "New Times Roman" and that worked fine. So Strange.

It could well be that treb.ms is a 'taller' font.
Try changing the menu's vertical size to slightly larger to see if this is the case. As it already works on mine I can't confirm this :(

Hehe yeah, I was just going to post here that I solved it! As you said, Trebuchet MS is a taller font and that caused my problem.

Thanks for your help though :)
