Hi Guy,

My application is coming up to scratch!!! Thanks for all your helps.

Basically I have been searching the internet for xml drop down menus ( usercontrols) and all i find are the one written in c#. even if i use c# translator i still get problems.
Can someone  pls direct me to a website with xml drop down menus written in vb.net? or if u already have one maybe u can share.

I have no problems with creating the xmls, its just the c# .


thanks in advance

In addition to these online demos, there are numerous demos available in the skmMenu download. The demos shown here are all in C#; the demos in the download are all in VB.NET...

Download skmMenu 2.2 Examples - Robert Vreeland has compiled a number of skmMenu examples that he and Steven Perry created. The source code for these examples is in Visual Basic .NET. You can also view some online examples that were created using C#.

it also comes precompiled to reference in your project

#  skmMenu Version 2.2 Binaries - download just the skmMenu assembly.
Note: This assembly was compiled for the .NET Framework Version 1.1. If you are using .NET Framework 1.0, you will need to download the source code and compile the project yourself through Visual Studio .NET 2003.

 
so that you can develop in either language.

it does work, but the fact that <selectedmenuitemstyle> is being highlighted is unsightly

alternately you could also specify your own css for the menu to eleviate this

<cc1:Menu id="Menu2" runat="server" Font-Names="Arial" Font-Size="Small" BackColor="#E0E0E0"
      Cursor="Pointer" ItemSpacing="0" ItemPadding="5">
      <SelectedMenuItemStyle BackColor="#FFC080"></SelectedMenuItemStyle>
</cc1:Menu>

or just set the backcolor and the selectedmenuitemstyle backcolor to the same and it will not highlight.
