View Full Version : Make a drop down menu like Windows XP

One of the more popular email requests we receive is how to make a drop down menu look like Office XP. To help with this, we created the "Office XP" drop down style as a demo. This has been on our site for a while, but we do have questions on what needs to be done to configure you're UDM menu to look like the demo.

I'll try to answer that here.

For starters, the demo is online at this URL:

The first thing you'll need to do is get all the supporting resource files. On the demo page above you'll see links to about 15 - 20 image files. Download these files and place them in your "udm-resources" folder on your site.

Once you've done that, you'll need to create a new configuration file. First, backup your current configuration file (udm-custom.js in most cases). Then, from the XP demo page above, download the style-officexp.js file and save it as "udm-custom.js", rewritting over your previous udm-custom.js file.

That's it. You're menu should now look like the typical Office XP style!
