- This is a drop-down menu with multi-level submenus.
- Move the mouse over the menu to activate submenus and effects.
- This demonstration shows an extremely simply configuration
of X-Bar Powerbar 1. It is the same applet as before - just the HTML parameters
have been changed to configure a different appearance. You can tweak
these parameters to produce all sorts of appearances.
- There are currently a total of 16 different colour parameters
for separately setting text, highlight, background, surround, separator,
title and other colour areas. In addition there are some preset internal
colour schemes to speed up your task, plus up to 50 styles resulting in
a potential 800 user-definable colour variables.
- The fixed submenu width option has been used here to force
some of the submenu entries to wrap over 2 or 3 lines.
- Some new icons are shown in one of the submenus.
- However large you make your top-level buttons, the applet always
automatically centres the text vertically, and offers you three horizontal
alignment options. In addition you can then specify text offsets moving
the text up, down, left or right.
- While trying out this demo, you should also take time to look
at how deep the menus can nest. X-Bars can pop-up up to 10 menus
deep, and if the pop-up windows hit the right-hand side of the
screen, they will "bounce" back so that you can still see and use
them. We can customise greater menu depth for you, but it is unlikely
you will ever need more than 10.
- Don't forget that you also have control over icons, background
graphics, font style, font size and font face, and many other
characteristics of the appearance.
