Wrong spry menu layout in design view

Feb 22, 2013 10:13 PM

Tags: #spry #design_view_different

My spry menu exeeds its limits in designwiev, but not i livewiev or in browser.

It is the anchor ikon that makes this happen when I apply an ID to the menu items.

Is there any way around this problem?


The menu is displaying a highligted menuitem for the current page, I have used the method from this link: .php.




<div id="nav">

      <ul id="MenuBar1" class="MenuBarHorizontal">

            <li><a href="index.html" id="home">Home</a>            </li>

            <li><a href="nyheder.html" id="nyheder">Nyheder</a></li>

            <li><a href="kurser.html" id="kurser">Kurser</a></li>

            <li><a href="courses.html" id="courses">Courses</a></li>

            <li><a href="studiegruppen.html" id="studiegruppen">Studiegruppen</a></li>

            <li><a href="om_os.html" id="om_os">Om os</a></li>

            <li><a href="historie.html" id="historie">Mindrollings historie</a></li>

            <li><a href="dharma_dhristi.html" id="dharma_dhristi">Dharma Dhristi</a></li>

            <li><a href="teachings.html" id="teachings">Teachings</a></li>

            <li><a href="kontakt.html" id="kontakt">Kontakt</a></li>

            <li><a href="links.html" id="links">Links</a></li>

    Unfortunately, Design View is not an accurate representation of what your design will actually look like and DW users have just come to accept this as common fact.  Just continue using Live View or a browser window to do your testing and use design view for approximations only.

    Henrik, I'm assuming you are aware that Spry is no longer officially supported/ developed by Adobe: ork-availability.html


    Consider switching to jQuery. There are various menu plug-ins you could use. Just google for it
