Hiermenus Go Forth, V:
Version 4 - The Page-Specific Parameters (cont'd)



HM_PG_ImageVertSpace

Description
Specifies additional vertical space to be added between the item border and the "more" image in a menu item with associated child menu. This space is in addition to the padding added through the HM_PG_ItemPadding and associated parameters. All menus, in all cascades (top-level and children) are affected.

HM_PG_ImageVertSpace overrides site-wide global settings declared in the external script.

Value
Pixels.
May be specified as:
  • integer
  • string
  • string JS expression to be evaluated

Example Values
integer: 3
    An extra three pixels of vertical space will be added between "more" images and their containing item's border in all menus on the page.

string: "2"
    An extra two pixels of vertical space will be added between "more" images and their containing item's border in all menus on the page.

JS expression: "getImageVertSpace()"
    A custom function that you have created will be called. The return value of this function will be the HM_PG_ImageVertSpace parameter, and all menus in the page will comply.

JS expression: "(IE4) ? ((document.body.clientHeight
    The complete JS code is included in the parameter declaration. In the above example, HM_PG_ImageVertSpace will be 0 if the browser window is less than 480 pixels high, and 3 if it is not.

Default
If this parameter is omitted, the relevant Global Parameter value set in the external script is used.

Differences from Version 3 equivalent
There is no Version 3 equivalent. Authors could not add extra vertical spacing using a parameter variable.

Next column, we'll complete our discussion of the Page-Specific Parameters, so we can then publish the actual external script.
I know, I know. It's like pulling teeth.
