spry menu using photoshop buttons colors

  • # July 3, 2008 at 10:33 pm

    I am working on a web page redesign for a client, using Dreamweaver CS3 with Spry horizontal menu on a Macintosh. Not quite finished yet. Sample link below.

    http://blfusa.org/blf_2008/index.htm

    The client asked me if there was a way to make the main tab buttons keep the rollover color while going down the sub-list. I have no idea if this is possible. I made the buttons in Photoshop.

    If you click on a sub-list item, I made the main tab buttons (up and down state) to be both a hover button, until you go and click on another main button section.

    I told the client that rollover buttons go back to the up state button color when your off it.

    Maybe you know of some css way to make it work. I admit I know nothing about javascript.

    Need help

    I am pretty sure with the way you have built the menu you wont be able to accomplish that. If you have the time and the client really wants that feature, I would look into building your menu out of pure CSS and dump the extra JS.

    Here are some resources.

    There’s more sites like that, but that is all I referenced to build this menu:

    It retains the rollover state while rolling over the sub-menu items naturally because the sub-menu’s are the children of the main menu.

    Hope that helps.
