Submenu should stay opened


Poster: flyceo
Dated: Thursday May 25 2006 - 17:47:43 BST

Hello everybody!

I want to create a completely horizontal menu. I mean the main menu and all submenus are horizontal. If the mouse is over an item of the main menu of course the submenu opens. But if the mouse is out of the menu the opened submenu should stay opened. It should only be closed when the mouse is over another main menu item. Then the submenus should be replaced by the submenu of the newly selected item.

I tried to use "keepalive" but this did not work. With "keepalive" the submenus did not disappear - they entitled themselves wich caused problems.

So please help me and give me a good solution for my problem!

Thank you very much!
Roland

P.S.: Here is the code I used in menu_data.js as a test

Code: Select all

fixMozillaZIndex=true; //Fixes Z-Index problem  with Mozilla browsers but causes odd scrolling problem, toggle to see if it helps
_menuCloseDelay=0;
_menuOpenDelay=150;
_subOffsetTop=2;
_subOffsetLeft=-2;

Hi,

Try placing the keepalive=1; into the main menu item that opens the submenu.
