Casio-BASIC navigation bar
« on: November 28, 2010, 08:53:24 pm »
I'm trying to decide how the navigation should be done for my Casio-BASIC tutorials. The fixed navigation bars mean that the user has to scroll the entire page to see the links. The CSS bar doesn't look very nice because it's fixed on the screen. The javascript bar looks nice because it drifts to its location on the page, but it's Javascript.

EDIT: The Javascript is kind of slow, but it looks really nice. HTML is so much better than PDF...

The Javascript bar is working. It's not quite as annoying as I feared it might be because of the popout menu

If it's JS, make sure it works in all browsers (IE8, Safari, Chrome, Firefox and Opera). I think it would be nice to always have the bar visible or at least at the top of the page. Screenshots?

It was designed to work in Opera, I've been modifying it in Firefox, and IE doesn't seem to hate it. Chrome shouldn't be a problem.

Screenshots will be forthcoming as soon as I can figure out what I screwed up in the code, though. It was working last night too...

EDIT: I had Javascript disabled :P

Also, IE hates it.

Lol X.x

But seriously Javascript is a nightmare to program. I had JS classes in 2003 and 2004 and even by 2004 I could not understand how to do a rollover. I just never could get the grasp of the language. :/

Good luck with the bar. Otherwise, maybe just have a navigation like on most websites, at the top or on the side.
