Hi,

I need help implementing onMouseOut hide submenu for the following menu script that another expert(Lisa) has helped me implement.

Right now she has implemented onClick hide, but I tried to implement onMouseOut but it seems not to work.

here is the code below.

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">
<HTML>
     <HEAD>
     
      <Script language='JavaScript'>
     function SubMenu(Cell){
          switch (Cell)
          {
          case "S0":{
          var elem = document.getElementById("S1");
          elem.style.visibility = 'hidden'
         
          }
          break
          case "S1":{
            var parent = document.getElementById("T1");
            var x = getRealLeft(parent);
            var y = getRealTop(parent);
           
          var elem = document.getElementById("S1");
            elem.style.position = "absolute";
            elem.style.left = x + 151; //width attribute of parent menu table + 1
            elem.style.top = y;
          elem.style.visibility = 'visible'
         
          }
          break
     
     }
}

function HideSub()
     {
     SubMenu("S0");
     return true;
     }

window.onclick=HideSub;
document.onclick=HideSub;

</Script>
         
     </HEAD>
     <body>
     
      <P>
                   
<script language="javascript">
//// FUNCTIONS TO POPUP AND SWAP MENU ITEMS
function Hide(Cell){
     Cell.style.visibility = "hidden"
      }
function Show(Cell)
     {
      Cell.style.visibility = "visible"
     }

function Swap(Cell){
     //alert("Swap" + Cell.id);
     switch (Cell.style.color){
     case "":
     {
     Cell.style.color="white"
     Cell.style.background="steelblue"
     }
     break
     case "white":
     {
     Cell.style.color=""
     Cell.style.background="whitesmoke"
     }
     break
     default:
     Cell.style.visibility = "hidden"
     }
}

function NavTo(Loc){
     window.location = Loc
     }
     
function getRealLeft(el) {
    xPos = el.offsetLeft;
    tempEl = el.offsetParent;
    while (tempEl != null) {
        xPos += tempEl.offsetLeft;
        tempEl = tempEl.offsetParent;
    }
    return xPos;
}

function getRealTop(el) {
    yPos = el.offsetTop;
    tempEl = el.offsetParent;
    while (tempEl != null) {
        yPos += tempEl.offsetTop;
        tempEl = tempEl.offsetParent;
    }
    return yPos;
}

     
</script>

<TABLE  onMouseOver=SubMenu('S1');Swap(this) onMouseOut=Swap(this) class='Menu' id='T1'
     style='Z-INDEX: 1;' cellSpacing='0' cellPadding='3' width='150' height='20'  border='0'>

Also the onMouseOver and onMouseOut change text color and background is kind of weird, color change does not go out onMouseOut. Any help with that would be appreciated also.

Glad you got the hide menu onmouseover to work.

I don't understand what the other problem is. The color seems to change correctly for me, from steelblue to whitesmoke, although originally there is no background color. If you are still having the problem, please explain.

Hi

http://208.202.161.42/idmextranet/menu/index.aspx 

this is the link to the menu, any idea how to fix the space between the menu items? Once you rollover they get fixed.

Add position:absolute to the style of the submenu tables like so (put spaces between the tag attributes for clarity):

<TABLE
     class='SubMenu'
     id='S1'
     onMouseOver=SubMenu('S1');Swap(this)
     onMouseOut=Swap(this);SubMenu('S0')

     style='position:absolute;border: 1px solid gray; visibility: hidden; Z-INDEX: 2;'

     cellSpacing='0'
     cellPadding='0'
     width='100'>
