    Drop Down Menus - Be a Flash Menu Master!

    (Page 1 of 6 )

    Flash websites generally arenít known for their ease of use. Nearly every site has a non-standard user interface, which can mean trouble for your surfing guests as they spend precious time getting used to your user interface.

    One interface that most people who've used a computer for more than 20 minutes can handle is the drop down menu. Quick and easy to make when you know what your doing, they're great for sites and projects that are built with expansion in mind. Add another item, add another option in one of the menus.

    This example is actually based on a drop down menu flash file that can be found at http://www.jake-man.co.uk/ , a personal site of mine I made about video games consoles. As I collected more consoles, I needed to be able to add them to specific genre, based on the consoles processor. The drop down menu proved a great way to handle this, as I could easily add more items in as and when needed.

    The clever part of this drop down menu is the "invisible button", one of every flash designers best weapons! No matter what project I'm working on, I end up using an invisible button somewhere.
