View Full Version : Don't understand what's needed to get popup relative to link to work

04-10-2008, 08:55 PM
You'll notice in the code below that I am pointing back to this website for css and js. Can someone please give me a sample of what should go in each of these? I have a working version of UDM4 working on my website. But now I am trying to create a second menu and understand that popup is my only choice here. Also can someone clarify -- can I have one drop down and then mulitiple popup menus or do I have to reconfigure my drop down nav bar as popup menus when I add a second nav bar?

//open menu with given ID
function openMenu(menuID,linkObj)
//if the menu code is ready
//find co-ordinates of link object
var coords = {
'x' : um.getRealPosition(linkObj,'x'),
'y' : um.getRealPosition(linkObj,'y')

//increase y-position to place it below the link
coords.y += (linkObj.offsetHeight + 4);

//activate menu at returned co-ordinates
um.activateMenu(menuID, coords.x + 'px', coords.y + 'px');

//close menu with given ID
function closeMenu(menuID)
//if the menu code is ready
//deactive menu

Not sure if you checked out these resources or not.

Popup menus: http://www.udm4.com/demos/popup-relative.php
More info: http://www.udm4.com/manual/depth/popup/#depth-popup-examples-relative

My guess is that you have though. As far as running 2 menus on the same page, you would need to do everything as a popup style to get that effect and even then, mixing horizontal and vertical can be difficult.

As far as the menus not working, its probably a path issue. You're including the code from this site, but that usually is looking for some resources in the "/udm-resources/" folder, which needs to be on your server.

Hope this helps.

I spent consideral time on the resources on this website already. That is why I am posting here. Thanks.

Can you post an URL to your development site? That would help us better trouble shoot the problem.

My development site is behind a firewall. That is why I sent the html page in my post.

I got this working now. I don't think that the examples did a good job of explaining that in addtion to the inline head JavaScript, you still need udm-control.js and udm-style.js. This is in addition to popup-relative.js. I am still in the process of decyphering the nuances between popup-relative.js and udm-custom.js. The differences appear to be minor. I also did not realize that I needed udm-dom.js in the body.

Thanks for your assistance in this matter.
