I made a drop-down menu using CSS and jquery. I would like each drop-down to have a different color scheme (to match the top menu item). I'm trying to use an if/else statement to achieve this. But I'm a greenie and don't really know what I'm doing.

Here is my page:

As you can see, the "partners" drop-down has the purple color scheme. It should be pink.

I'm probably writing the if/else stuff all wrong - I did that all by myself :)))

Thank you  Masters and Geniuses!

$(function () {
        $(".drop").hide();
        var btn = $("nav ul li");
        btn.mouseenter(function() {
          $(this).children(".drop").stop(true, true).slideDown();
        }).mouseleave(function() {
          $(this).children(".drop").stop(true, true).slideUp();
        });
        
		var pink = $(".pink");
		var purple = $(".purple");
		
        var link = $(".drop li");
        link.mouseenter(function() {
			
	
			if(purple) {
				$(this).css({"text-decoration" : "underline","color" : "white", "background-color" : "#9c298c"});
			}
			else if(pink) {
				 $(this).css({"text-decoration" : "underline","color" : "white", "background-color" : "e9187e"});
			}
			else {
				 $(this).css({"text-decoration" : "underline","color" : "white", "background-color" : "#333"});
			}
						
		 }).mouseleave(function() {
			 
			 
			if(purple) {
				$(this).css({"text-decoration" : "underline","color" : "white", "background-color" : "#c371b7"});
			}
			else if(pink) {

Hi,

I just want to confirm that your Partners is actually pink, and About Us is purple.  So everything looks fine to me.

Sorry, I should clarify...

Yes, "About Us" is purple and "Partners" is pink to begin with.

The Partners submenu items start out pink. Then the jquery css takes effect on mouse over, and they become purple. They should stay pink (with a darker pink on mouse over).

Thanks for looking at this,
Kyle

I also tried this with no luck:


<script> 
      $(function () {
        $(".drop").hide();
        var btn = $("nav ul li");
        btn.mouseenter(function() {
          $(this).children(".drop").stop(true, true).slideDown();
        }).mouseleave(function() {
          $(this).children(".drop").stop(true, true).slideUp();
        });
        
		
		
			var link = $(".drop li");
			link.mouseenter(function() {
	
			if($(this).hasClass(".purple")) {
				$(this).css({"text-decoration" : "underline","color" : "white", "background-color" : "#9c298c"});
			}
			else if($(this).hasClass(".pink" )) {
				 $(this).css({"text-decoration" : "underline","color" : "white", "background-color" : "e9187e"});
			}
			else {
				 $(this).css({"text-decoration" : "underline","color" : "white", "background-color" : "#333"});
			}
						
		 }).mouseleave(function() {
			 
			 
			if($(this).hasClass(".purple" )) {
				$(this).css({"text-decoration" : "underline","color" : "white", "background-color" : "#c371b7"});
			}
			else if($(this).hasClass(".pink" )) {
				 $(this).css({"text-decoration" : "underline","color" : "white", "background-color" : "f56dab"});
			}
			else {
				 $(this).css({"text-decoration" : "underline","color" : "white", "background-color" : "#333"});
			}

        });	
			
			
			
		
      });
    </script>

Fixed it.. The second version is correct. I had a typo.

Here's the working code:


<script> 
      $(function () {
        $(".drop").hide();
        var btn = $("nav ul li");
        btn.mouseenter(function() {
          $(this).children(".drop").stop(true, true).slideDown();
        }).mouseleave(function() {
          $(this).children(".drop").stop(true, true).slideUp();
        });
        
		
		
			var link = $(".drop li");
			link.mouseenter(function() {
	
			if($(this).hasClass("purple")) {
				$(this).css({"text-decoration" : "underline","color" : "white", "background-color" : "#9c298c"});
			}
			else if($(this).hasClass("pink" )) {
				 $(this).css({"text-decoration" : "underline","color" : "white", "background-color" : "#e9187e"});
			}
			else {
				 $(this).css({"text-decoration" : "underline","color" : "white", "background-color" : "#333"});
			}
						
		 }).mouseleave(function() {
			 
			 
			if($(this).hasClass("purple" )) {
				$(this).css({"text-decoration" : "underline","color" : "white", "background-color" : "#c371b7"});
			}
			else if($(this).hasClass("pink" )) {
				 $(this).css({"text-decoration" : "underline","color" : "white", "background-color" : "#f56dab"});
			}
			else {
				 $(this).css({"text-decoration" : "underline","color" : "white", "background-color" : "#333"});
			}

        });	
			
			
			
		
      });
    </script>
