start image and end image

Postby pros12 » Tue Jun 26, 2007 1:55 pm

I want to create a menu with curved edges (having a start image and an end image) and I thought using the leftimage and rightimage properties I would achieve this but nothing happens. Is there a way to achieve this? Are these properties supported?

Thanks alot

Hi,

Actually, leftimage and rightimage, if used in the style section will put the named image on the left and right in each item.

You can use them to do what you want, but as I experimented I found that if you want that you need to specify the leftimage in the menu items and you need to use leftimage for both just changing the image used. For example:

Code: Select all

with(milonic=new menuname("Main Menu")){
alwaysvisible=1;
left=10;
orientation="horizontal";
style=menuStyle;
top=10;
aI("leftimage=leftside.gif;text=;type=header;");
aI("text=Home;url=http://www.milonic.com/;");
MORE AI strings here
aI("leftimage=rightside.gif;text=;type=header;");
}


The reason for type=header; is to make those items not react to the mouse if over them.

Make sure you're using 5.777 which is what I tested

Finally, you can of course just use image= to get the same result. That left and right image was really designed to be able to put images on the left and right side of text in an item.

Thanks alot Ruth. I was puzzled on how I was going to achieve this. I thought the properties were not supported because on the Milonic properties page, they do not have explanations.

Thanks again
