I�ve seen this on some web sites. A menu contained in a box and the entire box moves up or down as the user scrolls up/down the page. Could someone please give me some hint how this affect is achieved?
Thanks a bunch in advance

Hi Eric,
I checked the web site you gave me and read the description of a �watermark script�. I don�t think that�s what I�m talking about. The script I�m looking for is for a menu that moves up and down, it�s not an image but a menu. This web site http://www.waukesha.tec.wi.us/home/degpro/atc/atc.htm has the sample of what I�m talking about.
I would really appreciate it, if you could please take a look at the web site and help me out.

My god, whoever programmed that made the site take forever to load by its fn coding....people need to lay off of ways to protect code....lol...
What you are looking for then is just a static menu, I am trying to find one like that...

If you cannot find specific example code of what you want to do, it's all based upon three simple mechanisms:
1) reacting to mouseout and mouseover events
2) positioning div elements
3) hiding/showing div elements
Once you know how to apply these three mechanisms, you should be able to program the menu system. (along with a bit of CSS to achieve the style you want).
hth,
bear
P.S. If any of the above give you fits, ask away!

Here is one answer. Read this website for instructions on how to use the code.

Hi Brad,
Isn't layer specific to Navigator 4 and communicator? I thought I read somewhere that Netscape stopped supporting it in the later browser versions but I may be wrong.
I've written a lot of small JavaScript scripts. But I'm no expert so I try to stay away from browser specific tags because I don't have the expertise to come up with the equivalent of each custom tag for each browser environment.
The affect of this moving menu is very pleasing to me and I would like to use it in my web site. I think and hope that brain and the talent on this forum can help with some good tips. The tips so far are really good but if you can please keep them coming.
Thanks

I could write the code, it is not hard, but I am lacking the time to do it. I have a bunch of personal projects to work on.
