DHTML Dynomat: Hierarchical Menu Parameters
Hierarchical Menus Version 2
Pass your mouse over link above to reveal menus.
This tool is written in DHTML. It is only accessible with version 4 browsers.
Related Column:  Hierarchical Menus, Version 2.
Purpose of Tool: To help authors assign appropriate values to the menu parameter variables by creating cut-and-paste code through a real-time, interactive browser session.
Prerequisite: Familiarity with the Hierarchical Menu code, especially the role of the parameter variables. The menus were developed in:
 Cross-Browser Hierarchical Menus
 Hierarchical Menus in Frames
and finally, Version 2 was discussed in:
The text area display cannot be modified manually, to avoid potential typos. The code can only be generated dynamically, by the tool. You may highlight the generated code in the text area, at any time, using the Select Code button.
The five tool pages are organized by theme, making some much shorter than others. You will spend the most time on the first page, which develops the menu "look", and creates the most parameters.
It is highly recommended that you use the tool pages in order and grab the code on the final page.
Let's start with the parameters that define the size, color and font of the menus.
