Doing it with style

CSS MENUSDrop-down menu with overlap and overrun

Date : 10th December 2006

For all modern browsers

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


Based on my prervious menu, this one goes a little further with the styling to give an overrun feature to the left, right and bottom of each sub level menu where the mouse can be moved off the menu by a small amount in each direction and the menu will still stay on screen. This gives a similar feel to the menus produced by javascript.

I have used em values for this menu so that it will stay in shape but you could easily change this to px values. The top level uses fixed widths but can easily be changed to be variable width to fit the text by removing the width values from the '.menu a, .menu a:visited' style.

This works in Internet Explorer IE5.5, IE6, IE7 Firefox, Opera etc.
