Scrolling Menu

Post by Tenfor » Thu Mar 02, 2006 4:04 pm

Hi,
We have been testing Nortree for a site we are planning and have a puzzle we hope someone can answer please. A couple of our product categories is very long, so much that it runs off the page so you can not click on the bottom half dozen entries. Is it possible to add a scrollbar or similar device to the menu - if so how.

Nortree is great - we will be sure to donate everytime we use it, this kind of enhancement adds a great deal to the Actinic functionality.

Thanks very much,

Art Tenfor

I'm afraid it would be very hard to add a scrollbox to the menus. However these menus obey the scroll wheel so you can use that to move down. Not all your customers will know that.

Also there is a checkbox on the NorTree Main page called "AutoSize". If checked this will cause NorTree to attempt to squash long entries down (by reducing the font and cell height) to try to get everything on the screen. The setting "Auto Min Height" limits how far to squash cells down.

Thanks for your prompt reply - rather what I feared. I'll look around to see if there is another way to get a similar effect. Nortree will still be great for some other projects later on :-)

Cheers,
