I really love to receive emails from users testing DHTML Menu Builder asking if they can do "this" or if they can do "that" or if its possible to create a menu like that on xxxx web site...

Well, DHTML Menu Builder will soon be 6 years old and I still have to find a menu that cannot be replicated with DHTML Menu Builder.

So... I dare you...
Show me a working menu on a web site that you think there's NO way it can be replicated with DHTML Menu Builder and if I cannot do it I will give you a free copy of the program!

If I can do it, then I'll post the .dmb project so everybody can download it.

…yep… that’s how confident I am about DHTML Menu Builder!

And here's the project...
NOTE: Make sure you use DMB 4.9 which is the version I used to create the menu.

Fantastic, absolutely fantastic.  Can the DE do that, too?

Hywel,

The DE is still very limited.
It might be able to handle some of the styles in the project but not all of them.

Also, support for images (left/right/background) will only be available in version 2.0 of the DynAPI.

Hi,

We have been using DHTML builder on our site http://www.snow-forecast.com but want to improve the navigation. We would like a menu like the one on http://www.skiclub.co.uk with these category options:

Home
=======
Members Only
- discounts
- tools
- favourites
========
Sign up
===========
Weather
- Weather maps
- Resort Forecasts
- Mobile Forecasts
============
News and Features

- site announcements
=============
Travel
- Insurance
- Holidays
==========
Competitions
============
Community
- Photo Gallery
- Members chat
- Guestbook
=========
Info
- Help / FAQ
- Meet the team
- Advertise
========

Let's see what it can do! Best wishes

Nick

Try the SCGB menu in  Mozilla ...  I already think that DMB can do that menu, but it may not be able to render it so badly in Mozilla wink.gif

OMG!
I hadn't notice how bad that menu is rendered under Mozilla.

Wait... give me a few minutes to create a fully crossbrowser/crossplatform version using DHTML Menu Builder!

Here's the project with the images.

I included the images because if you need to change the font size of the menu items or if you make changes that affect the height of the menus you will have tweak the images so they are properly rendered.

Here's an interesting request I received from a potential customer about 3 months ago wanting to know if a Flash menu they had created could be replicated using DHTML Menu Builder.

As you can see in the screenshot the menus are quite unusual... I even had to create an AddIn to handle the way the menus are rendered!
But... just as with every request I have ever received I was able to create this menu system with DHTML Menu Builder!

The original web site is http://www.heffgroup.com/content/tech/ but it looks like they never implemented the menus (nor the Flash version).

Attached is a ZIP file containing both the project and the AddIn.

I believe now that DHTML Menu Builder is ALMOST capable of doing any kind of menu.

I say almost because I think there's something missing when it comes to Expanding/Collapsible Menus.

Take UDM4 for example. Even though you were able to make an exact replica of the menu used in http://www.udm4.com if you go to http://www.udm4.com/demos/expanding-multiple.php you will find a menu that I doubt DHTML can get close to.

What do you think ???

Not the same, but similar in concept:

http://demo.hyweljenkins.com/dmb/

I haven't got time at the moment to have a proper go.

Similar in concept, but...

What if you want to expand the submenu below the Group item and not below+right. Or if you wish to maintain the background images, borders or special effects?

I really can't see the collapsible tree option able to handle all that.

Surprise... surprise!!!
Do not EVER doubt the power and versatility of DHTML Menu Builder!

Here's the documentation about this type of menus:

Here's one sample:

Here's how DMB's sample looks like when the "Collapsible Menus" AddIn is applied to it.
I have also attached the .dmb project; the AddIn is not included as it is shipped with the standard installation of version 4.10 and above.

Ok, you really surprised me.  :D

It's really great!! Cheers to you and to the DHMTL Menu Builder Team.

Please, I'd love to see something that cannot be done with DMB.
I’d use whatever different or new is on that menu to enhance DHTML Menu Builder…

I re-created that menu a long time ago by request of another user.
Let me see if I can find it so I don't have to re-do it...
