Postby winpe » Wed Mar 23, 2005 7:42 am

Hi,

I would like to create a menu style with blue color themes. I am using the milonic menu style and I am having trouble creating the menubgimage similar to backoff_green.gif. I am using firework but I am not getting the same effect as backoff_green.gif.

What I exactly want to do is creating a similar image with blue color. Could you please help?

with(vertStyle=new mm_style()){
bordercolor="#999999";
borderstyle="solid";
borderwidth=1;
fontfamily="arial, tahoma";
fontsize="72%";
fontstyle="normal";
headerbgcolor="#AFD1B5";
headerborder=1;
headercolor="#000099";
image="18_blank.gif";
imagepadding=3;
menubgimage="backoff_green.gif";
offbgcolor="transparent";
offcolor="#000000";
onbgcolor="#0000FF";
onborder="1px solid #999999";
oncolor="#000000";
onsubimage="on_13x13_greyboxed.gif";
outfilter="randomdissolve(duration=0.2)";
overfilter="Fade(duration=0.1);Alpha(opacity=95);Shadow(color=#777777', Direction=135, Strength=3)";
padding=3;
pagebgcolor="#CFE2D1";
pagecolor="#000066";
pageimage="db_red.gif";
separatoralign="right";
separatorcolor="#999999";
separatorpadding=1;
separatorwidth="85%";
subimage="black_13x13_greyboxed.gif";
itemwidth=140;
}

with(horizStyle=new mm_style()){
styleid=1;
bordercolor="#999999";
borderstyle="solid";
borderwidth=1;
fontfamily="arial, tahoma";
fontsize="72%";
fontstyle="normal";
headerbgcolor="#AFD1B5";
headerborder=1;
headercolor="#000099";
offbgcolor="#0000FF";
offcolor="#FFFFFF";
onbgcolor="#0000FF";
onborder="1px solid #999999";
oncolor="#000000";
onsubimage="on_downboxed.gif";
overbgimage="backon_beige.gif";
padding=3;
pagebgcolor="#CFE2D1";
pagecolor="#000066";
pageimage="db_red.gif";
separatoralign="right";
separatorcolor="#999999";
separatorwidth="85%";
subimage="downboxed.gif";

Hi,
What color blue? There are a lot of blues out there. If you can give me a hex code i.e. #66CCFF I can make the image for you, or perhaps Marty has other colors of that image.

I'm moving this topic to the Menu Images forum.

Same Request!

Postby joelgomez » Wed Jul 13, 2005 12:46 am

I found the Milonic Menu the most elegant and nice... but I do not like green color! Since I'm a lawyer, I'm more into "neutral colors", like gray, black or blue. It would be nice to have more "gifs" with other colors for the same menu template.

Any advice regarding a design tool to work with more options with be appreciated.

Regards,
Joel

Hi Joel,

That specific image design doesn't seem to be in the imagepak area so Marty may have created that specifically for the Milonic site. However, there are many images, backgrounds, item icons, arrows, animated, etc., in numerous colors available here that as a licensed user you can download and use. There is a note about 1/2 way down the page about contacting Milonic if you don't see what you want. Right after the 4 link lines with icons to the left of them.

You can also check out a number of samples to see the image/background layouts and designs from here

On the second link page you're looking for samples with names like Agriculture, Blackforest, blocky, Imperial, Corporate, etc. Hope this helps.

Hi Joel,

I just talked to Marty at Milonic to make sure it was OK to do different colors. Just right click the images and save. Below are style codes for the colors, you don't have to use them, but since I had to make them to see how the images looked in the menu, I figured I might as well post them here. You can't really see the image colors very well since they are so small, you'll have to put them into the menu to see how they look.

You'll probably want to test the style colors, though I'm pretty sure they are OK.
