Description: Introduction

Received some requests for the menu, so decided to post it for everyone's benefit. :) Its also a freeware, so modify it, distribute it for all you want for your personal or commercial purpose, I don't care. Just leave my credits on top, won't you?

How To Use

Include the following two javascript files :

<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript" SRC="js/lw_layers.js"></SCRIPT>
<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript" SRC="js/lw_menu.js"></SCRIPT>

Then define the menu structure :

AddMenuItem (1, 0, "index.htm", "Home", "")
AddMenuItem (2, 0, "dp-intro.htm", "Date Picker", "")
AddMenuItem (21, 2, "dp-intro.htm", "Introduction", "")
AddMenuItem (22, 2, "dp-download.htm", "Downloads", "")
AddMenuItem (23, 2, "dp-credits.htm", "Updates & Credits", "")
AddMenuItem (3, 0, "mn-intro.htm", "Drop Down Menu", "")
AddMenuItem (21, 3, "mn-intro.htm", "Introduction", "")
AddMenuItem (22, 3, "mn-download.htm", "Download", "")
AddMenuItem (4, 0, "testimonial.htm", "Testimonials", "")

Some points to note here. The AddMenuItem function accepts 5 parameters :

  • Unique Id ( just a unique number will do, for child nodes to point to )
  • Parent Id ( 0 to denote root node )
  • URL ( to go to when selected )
  • Description ( to display on the menu )
  • Image File ( filename to a small icon to display on the left of the option )

    Finally place the following code at the place you wishes to display the menu :

    <SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">


    Only tested with IE6 and Netscape 6. Guarantee won't work in Netscape 4 and IE for Macintosh. Perhaps some kind soul would like to fix this issue for me :)
