Default Pop up Menu's

I'm very new to building web sites and know very little code, however the beginning Dreamweaver MX book is great.
In my site navigation I have rollover's set and also a preview image that is assigned to the button rollover, all this works fine however when I try to add a pop up menu to the button it allows me to add all my menu info and even shows up in the behaviors panel but when previewed it does nothing. Is it also possible to keep the preview images from my main navigation buttons in the pop up menu's.

Thanks

Hi Derek,

I am glad you like the book.... :-)

I am not sure what the problem is. Can you be more specific about the chapter, page and step number(s).

When you say preview, do you mean preview in the browser or in Dreamweaver. When you mean the browser, you may forgotten to upload the pages to the testing server / remote server. To do this, right click your site on the Files panel in Local View and choose Put. This will copy all required files from your local site to the remote server.
If this doesn't help, please let me know.

Can you elaborate a little about your last question (keep preview images in the pop up menus)? I am not sure what you mean.


Cheers,

Imar

Hi Imar,

The relevant area in the book would be Chapter 6, around pg 207.

My site is designed the following way.
12 navigational buttons with roll over effects. 12 displaced images (which I called previews) in 12 separate layers that change with the roll over effects, very similar to The Cooking Place site.
Now I would like to extend the navigation by using the Pop up menu behavior. I select this from the behaviors panel and enter my information and everything seems to look ok but when I save and up load to the testing server and preview in IE all the rollovers work except for the POP up menu....what am I doing wrong!

Once the Pop up menu works I would like the button roll over effect and the displaced image that becomes active with the roll over effect to remain active when rolling over the pop up menu...is this possible?

Thanks

Derek

Right, are you trying to make a pop up menu appear on an image that is rolled over?

I think you should post some (relevant) code here, or link to page where the source can be viewed. It's difficult to guess without seeing the actual situation.....

Cheers,

Imar

I took this code from the td tag. I don't see any Pop up menu text although it shows in the behaviors panel. I could also e-mail a screen shot of Dreamweaver!

<tr>
            <td><a href="#" onMouseOver="MM_swapImage('Image24','','../images/button%20imgs/search%20rollover.gif',1);MM_showHideLayers('searc h','','show','profiles','','hide','home','','hide' ,'wskits',''
,'hide','gmparts','','hide','Clipcowl','','hide',' mirrorbutton','','hide','doorhdwr','','hide','rain sensor','','hide','wiperblades','','hide','tools', '','hide','contactus','','hide');MM_showMenu(windo w.mm_menu_0909070200_0,97,26,null,'Image24')" onMouseOut="MM_swapImgRestore();MM_showHideLayers( 'search','','hide','profiles','','hide','home','', 'show','wskits','','hide','gmparts','','hide','Cli pcowl','','hide','mirrorbutton','','hide','doorhdw r','','hide','rainsensor','','hide','wiperblades', '','hide','tools','','hide','contactus','','hide') ;MM_startTimeout();"><img src="../images/button%20imgs/search.gif" name="Image24" width="100" height="29" border="0"></a></td>
          </tr>

I should add that the code is from the td tag from one of the buttons called Search.

and yes, the button does have a roll over effect that I'm trying to attach the pop up menu too.

Imar, thanks for the post. I am new and was also frustrated with the pop up menu problem. I was ready to give up. Thanks again.

Chris
