Code for drop-down sub menu needed.

  Ben Avery 15:28 14 Nov 2005


I'm in the process of trying out a dropdown menu with background opacity in IE and Firefox.

So far, I've managed to get the dropdown part of the menu to work in both IE6 and Firefox but I'm struggling a little with the option of adding submenus to the submenus (if you know what I mean!).

The page (very basic) is located here click here and you can see the dropdown transparency working in the browsers.

In the code (currently hidden) is what code I've worked out for the sub-submenus and also where I'm testing it. By removing the /* section in the style area and the !-- area uin the body text you will see the effect I want.

Want I can't work out is how to make the sub-submenu appear ONLY when the "Home 1.2" button is hovered over and not ANY button in "Home 1" menu.

Make sense?

Help greatly appreciated!

Managed to get exact desired result in Firefox. How can I adapt code to work in IE now?

Did you have a look at the link I posted - I think there are some critical CC's for IE.

sorry mate, looked at the link and missed one very important line!

Now seems to be working well in FireFox & IE6.

Works in Opera but no opacity due to it not currently being supported! Oh well...

Cheers all, closing thread.
