  • Layer on top

    Hi,
    I have a simple horizontal menu I created. Is there any way to set it up so it stays at the top when the user scrolls? My client would like this feature and I am little new to dhtml and don't know where to start.

    Common approach is to use frames.

    You can make a "content" division with
    position: absolute;
    overflow: scroll;
    and resize it every time the browser window is resized so it stays
    within the client window.

    Once M$ gets their, you know what, together and makes a CSS2 compliant browser the answer would be
    position: fixed

        Alternate method:

        <html>
        <head>
        <title>untitled</title>
        <style type="text/css">

        #menu {
        font: 800 36px monospace;
        background: sienna;
        border: 3px tan double;
        }

        #container {
        position: relative;
        top: 0px;
        }

        </style>
        <script type="text/javascript" language="JavaScript">

        var menu_el = null;
        var menu_offset = 0; //distance from page top - match to #container top: (CSS)

        function getEl(id) {
        return document.all ? document.all(id) :
        document.getElementById ? document.getElementById(id) :
        document.layers ? document.layers[id] : null;
        }

        function moveToY(el) {
        if (typeof document.all != 'undefined')
        el.style.top = parseInt(document.body.scrollTop) + menu_offset;
        else if (typeof document.getElementById != 'undefined' &&
        typeof window.pageYOffset != 'undefined')
        el.style.top = pageYOffset + menu_offset;
        else if (el.pageY) el.pageY = pageYOffset + menu_offset;
        }

        function menu_static() {
        menu_el = getEl('container');
        if (typeof window.onscroll != 'undefined' && menu_el)
        onscroll = function() {
        moveToY(menu_el);
        }
        else if (document.layers) setInterval('moveToY(menu_el)',10);
        }

        onload = menu_static;

        </script>
        </head>
        <body>
        <div align="center">
