Doing it with style

CSS MENUSA graphic fly-out menu

Date : 26th March 2006

For all modern browsers

This demo is too wide for your mobile screen.
Please view on a tablet or PC.


Another flyout menu, but this time using background images to create the menu and sub-menu links.

This one also has a flicker free change of graphic on hover.

This works in IE5.5, IE6, IE7 beta, Firefox 1.5 and Opera 8. It should also work in Netscape 8, Mozilla and Safari. It will not work on IE5.01 or IE5 Mac.

Cascading Style Sheet

Because a lot of visitors are having trouble with the conditional comments and the cascading style sheets for this menu I have now removed the CSS to separate files and now show how to load these into the page.

If you look at the header of this page you will see that the normal method of loading a file is used for the non-ie browser css.

<link rel="stylesheet" media="all" type="text/css" href="css/fly_wall.css" />

The fly_wall.css file

The IE only style sheet is loaded using the conditional comment.

<!--[if lte IE 6]>
<link rel="stylesheet" media="all" type="text/css" href="css/fly_wall_ie.css" />

The fly_wall_ie.css file

The html

The html code for the flyout menu can be seen here in text format.

You will see that conditional comments have been used to hold the IE specific version of the menu which used nested tables. The other browsers will not see the tables and instead will use the normal unordered lists.

Please note that you will also need a standards compliant !doctype for this menu to work correctly.
