size of the HTML Menu

Posted on 2014-11-25
Last Modified: 2014-12-10
Are there any example to build up a menu such that it can realign the menu on a smaller screen ? Does the code allow to detect the screen size and recreate any menu as attached ?

There are multiple ways of doing this, a few examples here

Really depends on your markup.

Do I need to include a code to detect the screen size, in order to display screen1 (large screen) or screen 2 (smaller screen) ? How to achieve this ?

The link above gives you the css and media queries for each example

The keyword here is media queries e.g.
@media screen and (max-width: 768px) {
  .tinynav { display: block }
  .dropdown { display: none }

Open in new window

This tells the browser what to do at various screen sizes
Free Tool: Port Scanner

Check which ports are open to the outside world. Helps make sure that your firewall rules are working as intended.

Tks.  As seen in my attached screen, the application will put all the menu item into a "square box". So does it mean there are two some special coding on handling the items ?  

Is it possible to have a sample demonstrate so that I can visualize how to make this menu in two different resolution, similar to my attached screens ?

Great thanks again.

If you are using Magento I would look at Magento Connect for some freebie plugins, though I thought Magento had a responsive menu built in now...?

I have downloaded Magento but I will not use it as I can't find a way to start after reading a user guide menu.  

I only need to build two set of menu on different resolution, similar to that I have attached. Tks

The link provides all the css and media queries for the different menu's
Unless you have real code and not a screenshot there is no point providing code as every implementation is different
