| This customizable multilevel tree
menu has many faces. You can let the menu items appear from
many directions, this option alone will give you many different
types of menus. It supports background images for both the applet
and the menu items.
Adding menu items and URLs
It is very important that you read the section Working
With Tree Fields in the VAC manual. This section tells
you how to include the menu items and how to use the tree
The menu colors
You can set a varierity of colors in this menu. This menu
works in two ways, you can either have a background image
for all the menu items, or you can customize the existing
menu item background which is built into the menu. The item
background and border colors will be overridden if you specify
a menu item background image. The item text and highlight
colors are used for the two modes. The item highlight color
is the color that the item text will change to when you move
the mouse across a menu item. It will slowly change into that
color depending on the fade speed setting. The applet's background
color will be overridden if you specify a background image.
Level displacements, Item size and Animation speed
The vertical and horizontal level displacement are used to
displace the subitems for the parent menu items, measured
in pixels. The horizontaldisplacement is recommended to be
set to above 40 pixels. The vertical displacement is not recommended
to be set to higher than the menu item height. The menu item
width and height are the dimensions of the menu items in pixels.
The animation speed parameter will not only affect the speed
of the rotation effect, but also the speed of the color changing
mouse over effect. Values between 5-20 are recommended. Put
100 to disable the effect and increase the menu speed.
The Movement Direction
You can set the movement for the menu items and thus get
different kinds of menus. You can let the items appear from
the top, bottom, right or from a random direction.
You can specify a menu item background image and a background
image for the applet. These settings will override the background
colors that you may specify.
Clicking Sound Effect
If you have an MP3 file in your personal folder, you will
be able to select it for the menu items. The sound will be
played when the menu items are clicked. Leave this empty to
You can disable the arrow and let it stand still with these
two check boxes.
Due to a bug in Flash Player 5.0, you can have a maximum
of 200 menu items in the Flash applet. More than that, and
the applet will not work. Make sure you don't put too many
menu items. Flash is slow and this is a very complicated menu,
too many items will increase the applet's initialization time
There are other settings that are discussed in the following
topics from the Anfy Flash documentation:
