In Dreamweaver's spry vertical menu, I am trying to get the sub-menu to simply flyout just ABOVE the parent menu, instead of the default in which it appears just below.

I played around with the margin settings to no avail, but I took the setting "top: 0;" and changed it to "bottom: 100%;" and viola! that did it in all browsers but IE. (IE7 and IE8) In explorer, the sub-menu still appears below the parent.

I tried many different settings but to no avail - can someone please help with this?

I can provide my code/example if needed but alls I did to test this is just open a blank html page, insert vertical menu - then changed the settings mentioned.....thats it.(Guess that only applies to dreamweaver users)

Hope this is the right section as I believe a css setting change is all that is needed as opposed to the javascript code.

Thank you!

Menu problem

Can you send a link to the code or the css and html? I'm not sure what Dreamweaver puts in the menu code. It should be an easy change though.

This file handles the JavaScript for Spry Menu Bar. You should have no need
to edit this file. Some highlights of the MenuBar object is that timers are
used to keep submenus from showing up until the user has hovered over the parent
menu item for some time, as well as a timer for when they leave a submenu to keep
showing that submenu until the timer fires.

Just a note Below is the

Just a note

Below is the default settings and the ones adobe says nees to be changed to adjust the height position of the sub-menu.

/* Submenus should appear slightly overlapping to the right (95%) and up (-5%) with a higher z-index, but they are initially off the left side of the screen (-1000em) */
ul.MenuBarVertical ul
{
padding: 0;
list-style-type: none;
font-size: 100%;
position: absolute;
z-index: 1020;
cursor: default;
width: 8.2em;
left: -1000em;
top: 0;
-5% 0 0 95%;
}

The -5% would normally be changed to ajust the sub-menu vertical position, this works if all the sub-menus are the same height. But if their heights differ (depending on how much content is in each) then this doesn't work well as some sub-menu's appear higher than others, since it is basing the distance from the top of the page down.
HOwever, I found changing "top: 0;" to "bottom: 100%;" works perfect in all browsers but IE.

I ultimately want each sub-menu to appear JUST above it's own parent menu.

I tried it this way it seems to work.

ul.MenuBarVertical ul
{
top: 0;
margin-top: -10px;
/*bottom: 100%*/
...
