Dynamic Menus - Collapsible Menus
The bluetronix software contains 5 different so-called drop-down menu types.
With the help of the dynamic menus, many navigation points can be arranged in a clear form. Since only the sub-items of the currently selected menu item appear, the visitor to the homepage is not overwhelmed and can quickly find their way around.
Any number of points and levels can be created with the menu editor. The menu, the levels and each individual button can be extensively modified using the CSS editors be designed. Button states such as "mouseover" (when the mouse moves over it) or "onclick" (when clicked) can be defined using the style classes. Various menu types are possible on a homepage, as can be seen in the image below.
The 5 different menu types of the bluetronix software are presented below.
