Default Chapter 3 Pop Out Menu

I am trying to create a pop out menu like the one in this chapter, where you can hover over "About" in the menu and a submenu pops out. I tried doing this example, and I even downloaded the code, but when the sub menu pops out it is just a blank white box. Does anyone know why I am having this problem? Any ideas at all? Thanks.

Hi there,

This sounds like an IE 8 thing; for more info, take a look at this thread: IE8 and the Menu

Cool

I have noticed this isue with Google Chrome & IE8 and the fix that is implied in the articles does not sem to fix the bug in question, namely the sub menus do not show on the menu screen in the Wrox United website.

You can see this is the case by pointing either newer browser to www.wroxunited.net. In Firefox and IE7 & before this is not an issue.

Ive followed the article and now my corresponding
<
DynamicMenuStyleCssClass="dynamicMenu"/> looks like
.dynamicMenu
{
background-color:#a83930;
border-color: #fdea12;
border-style: solid;
border-width: 1px;
z-index: 1000;
}

Hoever after these changes the navigation does not seem to be fixed. Any ideas on this one anybody ?

The fix seems to work for one page only History.aspx, which has a slightly different navigation menu

Hi there,

I am not sure I understand your problem. The WroxUnited web site seems to work fine for me using IE 8.

Did you apply the server patch Microsoft supplied?

Cheers,

Imar

Default Google Chrome

Have now got this working locally using IE8 and an amended CSS file to reflect the new
<DynamicMenuStyleCssClass="dynamicMenu"/> looks like
.dynamicMenu
{
background-color:#a83930;
border-color: #fdea12;
border-style: solid;
border-width: 1px;
z-index: 1000;
}

This now works. Have found that the fix works for IE8 BUT does not work for Google Chrome - as can be seen for the Wrox United Website. Any plans to resolve this for an increasingly popular browser ??

The Google issue is a different one:

Not sure what you're asking here. Who are you targeting here? The writers of the book? The maintainers of the errata section? or Microsoft?

And "increasingly popular browser" is relative; they have a market share of around 1,5% according to this site: http://marketshare.hitslink.com/brow...e.aspx?qprid=2 I guess 80% of that 1.5% is a developer checking his site on Chrome ;-)

Cheers,

Imar
