Just wondering if anyone knows if its possible to implement what looks fairly simple in css; I am referring to the menu at macromedia.com, which when one places one's mouse over a main link in the top navigation bar a series of related links appear in the below element. I am not sure whether this is done through java or dhtml but from looking at the code it looks as if its defined in css. So anyone have any ideas?
Yes you can do this, I'm not sure off the top of my head, but it is possible.
That menu is made in Flash
Actually that menu is made in Flash, but
I am sure you can do that kind of menu with css and .js, but I don't know how yet, I'm sorry.
You would need to use DHTML but it's not very complicated.
Just position a div or inline list for each of the sub menus and use dhtml to display the one required when the mouse is over the top menu.
In the common questions area there is an example of hiding things with dhtml.
