mm_style() undefined?

Post by kelemvor » Sun Nov 16, 2003 3:24 am

Howdy,

I just took my old 3.4 file and ran it through the converter to see what would happen. I then took the result and just replaced my old menu_array.js file with the new one (of course I made a backup first).

When I view my web page locally now to test it, I don't get a menu but get the little error icon at the bottom of IE6. When I open it it says:

Error: 'mm_style' is undefined.

Do I need to do anything to the mmenu.js file at all or any other steps I need to take to get the upgrade to work? I didn't really see any isntructions anywhere other than to just stick my menu_array file in the converter.

Thanks.



EDIT:
Here's the first part of the menu_array file...


if(navigator.appVersion.indexOf("MSIE 6.0")>0)
{
effect="Fade(duration=0.2);Alpha(style=0,opacity=88);Shadow(color='#000000', Direction=135, Strength=5)"
}
else
{
effect="Shadow(color='#777777', Direction=135, Strength=5)"
}

_menuCloseDelay=500;
_menuOpenDelay=150;
_scrollAmount=3;
_scrollDelay=20;
_followSpeed=5;
_followRate=40;
_subOffsetTop=10;
_subOffsetLeft=10;


with(style1=new mm_style()){
offcolor="white";
offbgcolor="none";
oncolor="pink";
fontsize=11;
fontstyle="normal";
fontweight="bold";
fontfamily="Verdana, Arial";
padding=5;
subimage="arrow2.gif";
high3dcolor="#66ffff";
low3dcolor="#000099";
pagecolor="red";
headercolor="#ffffff";
separatorcolor="#3399ff";
}

Did you follow the install docs that come with the download of the menu? You need to copy the milonic_src, the mmenudom, and the mmenuns4 files onto your server as well. Then you need to reference those files correctly in any pages that use the menu....the docs explain it all.
I just took my old 3.4 file and ran it through the converter to see what would happen. I then took the result and just replaced my old menu_array.js file with the new one (of course I made a backup first).
From this am guessing you just plugged your converted menu into your page, which uses all the old code. Download the menu samples and read the docs!

First, a tip - whenever posting code use the tags provided at the top of the posting page. A lot can get lost when you don't.

Based on your message I have to make quite a few assumptions, the main one being...

1. You just ran your _data file through the converter and then popped the result back on the server? If so, wouldn't it seem logical that since it's a v3 to v5 converter there might be some changes to the menu code as well that need to be loaded?

If (1 = true) then that is, obviously, the problem. Download the complete v5 from the main site, read the included install instructions (it is completely different than v3), and try again.

If (1 <> true), then my apologies. Post a URL (as requested) so we can see all your code and dig into it further to get you going.

Well as a suggestion to Milonic, maybe on he COnverter page it should have a note that says You will also need to download the sample menu to work with your newly converted file. There is no mention of this anywhere that I could see. Some simple Upgrade Instructions would be nice that would say which file to download and replace and things like that.

When you've converted your menu there is a link provided to download the file. This will send you to a page with a link to either the converted file or the whole download that will include your converted menu. This will include everything you need.
