Chrome Menu Bar

Author: Dynamic Drive

This is a lightweight "chrome" looking CSS menu bar. The menu uses two variants of the same background image to create the hover effect. The first background image is applied to the entire menu bar, while the second sporting a different color is applied only when the mouse moves over any of the menu links. The menu items can easily be set to either align "left", "center", or "right" on the page, just by changing the "text-align" attribute.


The two images (resized for easier download):

Hey guys, really nice tutorial, but I prefer it if the blue part stretches the whole length of the button. Is there any way to do that?!

Cheers guys,

If you mean so the blue effect covers the entire link area(right now there's a little space on the left side), this was a compromise so that you could easily specify the alignment of the menu links (left, middle etc). To solution to your question is to set the menu links to float and
, but that means aligning the menu links is no longer a trivial thing. Not a worth while compromise IMO.

I think it is, how would the links be aligned if the display: block was put in?

This is a great easy css menu. Two questions though. Is there a way to make all the buttons on the bar the same width? And is there a way to specify the width of the menu bar without having the seperator after the last menu item. Anyone...
