    Popup Menu in Fireworks 8

    suzy_bcny
      Hi All,

      I want to create popup menu using fireworks 8. I was able to create basic simple popup menu.

      I want to make popup menu in which when mouse is moved over root button it changes its image, pops out the menu and root image stays into changed image till pop up menu is poped out. when popup menu is close root image changes to original image.(same as www.bestbuy.com is having - when mosue is moved over root image change to image with yellow font, pops out the menu and stays yello font imiage till pop up menu is open. when pop up menu is closed root image changes to original image/state.)

      Does anybody have idea, how to do this?

      Pls Help!

      Thank you.

          Yeah, Id say at that point mussing around with the default popup menu may not be the best answer in the long run. You should check out how to make one from scratch or even use http://www.projectseven.com popup menus which are far more robust than the out of the box popup menu in Fw8.

            Thanks Alan for your reply.

            But I donot want to buy anything else. I have already bought fireworks8.

            I would just like to use fireworks8 for creating menu.

            Your suggestion in this will really help me. Thank you.

                I am also missing some. This one strangely enough only shows content
                when I replied to it!

                      I don't believe Alan suggested you buy anything, but if he did, then
                      consider these free alternatives. The FW menus simple suck large rocks....

                      Check the uberlink and MacFly tutorials at PVII -
