horizontal umenu?


    Feb 09 2006 | 1:14 pm
    I'm looking for an external or abstraction or something to create a "horizontal umenu" - meaning that the orientation of the unclicked state is a tall, narrow rectangle, and then when you click it, it expands horizontally to reveal its menu items.
    Also, it would be great if the text appeared up and down:
    Unclicked State:
    U n c l i c k e d
    Clicked State:
    C | I | I | e l | t | t | t i | e | e | c c | m | m | . k | 2 | 3 | . e | | | . d | | |

      hi,
      Have a look at Matthew Aidekman's GUI objects. I'm not sure there's a vertical umenu and I don't have them on this computer to check, but anyway, maybe you'll find something useful for your need in them.
      hth.

      Thanks - a good suggestion, as I'd not looked at Matthew's package before. Lot's of (very nice) stuff in there, but unfortunately nothing that matches what I'm looking for. If if in the end nothing that fits my needs is already available, looking at Matthew's Javascript might help me build my own...

      recently i tried to make a "custom ubumenu" which would work in pluggo. i used picture buttons for mousetracking/mouse up down, and bringtofront sendtoback messages to thispatcher to "open" the menu over the rest of the GUI. it would open when you click its title, and it would "close" again as soon as you clicked inside. ...

      Sounds like it might help me Roman - did it work? Can you share it?
      Thanks, Dan
