This AddIn will let you open a menu when a document is displayed and keep it
This is very useful if you want to keep the menu of a particular section in your
web site open so your visitors can easily navigate that section.
As seen in the above sample the menu for the "Utilities" section is
permanently displayed and remains open so its easier to access its options.
Here's the code that needs to be manually included into the
HTML document where you want to open a menu:
tbItemName = "1002";
It is recommended that this code be placed right before the
closing </body> tag.
The value "1002" is the only thing that you will need to
change in order to control which menu to open.
Its very easy, the first menu item is 1001, the second is 1002 and so on.
So, if we would have wanted to open the menu for the "ActiveX Controls"
section we would have used 1003 as shown below:
tbItemName = "1003";
Note that you can even extend the power of this AddIn by
using the "Item Highlight Wizard" to
highlight the menu items that show the currently selected section in your web
site. (See a
working sample here).
Since version 1.0g you can also force a hotspot-based menu
to remain open. Hotspot-based menus are those menus that are displayed from
an element in your page, such as an image. If you're working with tolbars
then you can skip this section.
<a href="#" onmouseover="ShowMenu('MyGroup',170,5,false)" onmouseout="tHideAll()">
To work with hotspot-based groups you will have to give your <a> tags an
id using the "id" paramater and then use this id as the
For example, let's support that the <a> tag for a hotspot that displays a
menu looks like this:
The first thing to do is to is to give the <a> an id. Remember
to use a unique id, for example:
<a href="#" onmouseover="ShowMenu('MyGroup',170,5,false)" onmouseout="tHideAll()" id="MyID01">
Finally, add the code to force the menu to remain open as
tbItemName = "MyID01";
