    Question: My spry menu bar is not displaying correctly in Dreamweaver

    alrosales Community Member

      Hello,

       

      I am  new to Dreamweaver CS5, so coding isn't my area of expertise. My problem with my spry menu bar is that it does not display the tabs on the menu bar correctly. When I try to apply new changes to the CSS of the horizontal menu bar, half of the tabs will change and the other half will not. Also, I am unable to drag and move the menu bar itself around, a function that I was once able to do before. At times, only one tab of the menu bar will display itself, without any of the other tabs as well.

       

      I have a hunch that my problems stem from some coding errors in the SpryMenuBarHorizontal.css, and possibly in the SpryMenuBar.js. On the CSS Styles panel, my SpryMenuBarHorizontal.CSS list reads as follows:

       

      Screen Shot 2012-09-01 at 10.40.51 PM.png

      I also have a hunch that something about this line-up is also incorrect, but I don't exactly know what the problem is.

       

      Here is what my coding for my SpryMenuBarHorizontal.css looks like right now:

      SpryMenuBar.js

      This file handles the JavaScript for Spry Menu Bar.  You should have no need

      to edit this file.  Some highlights of the MenuBar object is that timers are

      used to keep submenus from showing up until the user has hovered over the parent

      menu item for some time, as well as a timer for when they leave a submenu to keep

      showing that submenu until the timer fires.

      If anyone could possibly steer me on the right direction with this, I'd be very grateful! I've been struggling with this for about a month now and I feel like I may have only made the situation worse.

       

      I'm not sure if I have to keep making a new spry assets folder in my website or not or if I have to drag and drop the spry assets into the root folder. I have restarted my website over at least a dozen times by now. I have tried changing folders, dragging and dropping various spry assets folders everywhere and I have also uninstalled and reinstalled my copy of Dreamweaver CS5 in the hopes of getting my spry horizontal menu bar to act normal. I am completely new at Dreamweaver and I really, really need some help with this.

       

      Thanks!
