- This menu is a sliding menu with submenus which slide out vertically from beneath the parent items.
This demonstration varies from the previous one by having
a border inserted. You can design (and resize) your own borders using
a simple graphics editor. As the borders are processed within
the applet, you do not need to worry about complex table formatting
as with some other applets.
- In case you didn't try out some features on the last demo,
look out for these here:
- Test the depth of the nesting using the sample folders
- Note that each line is automatically wrapped if necessary;
this is an unusual feature making this applet especially suitable for
demanding navigation requirements; up to 20 lines per entry are
available and you can force line-breaks as well.
- Try the scrolling options (NB: Tree Type I has horizontal scrolling
as well as vertical; this tree - Tree Type II - copes with long lines by wrapping them).
- If you open up the folder marked for testing line-wrapping,
you will see that the "paragraph" has a hanging-indent which can
be used to use the space beneath the icon. The hanging-indent is
precisely user-definable and is attached to the stylesheets - i.e.
it can be differently defined for each style.
