Here you can see the first beta version of the new menu that I called LucidMenu. It is based on Sam Stephenson’s Prototype 1.5.

Demo: http://www.bodurov.com/lucidmenu/

Source: http://www.bodurov.com/lucidmenu/lucidmenu.zip

Some or the features like right to left text or having selected nodes are not yet completed, but other new features are already available.

What you can see here is:

  • Loading the content as JSON from an external file with AJAX
  • Isolated reneding – you can implement your function of what should be rendered. Here it is implemented in LucidMenuGenerator function. You can pass your CustomRenderingFunction function with the Menu constructor like this:
var menu = new LucidMenu("LucidMenu1", CustomRenderingFunction);
menu.load("MenuContent.txt");

Hello Vladimir,

I found your site and like your menus a lot. I was wondering if you were interested in the menu on this page?
(Look at the bread crumb that says "MSDN > MSDN Library > Development Tools and Languages > Visual Studio .NET")
http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa288743(VS.71).aspx

You may need to see it in IE7 to see the full effect.
I like how the div with scrollbars appears when you hover over "Visual Studio .NET"

thanks

Yes Valimai, this menu looks pretty cool. I think I left behind my menu projects because of the fact that there are many cool menus already available in internet and because I am involved in other cool projects.

But you are free to take any of my sources and continue it from there if you like.
