Recently, I wrote an HTML menu using XML and XSLT. It uses IE "
CreatePopup". The whole XSL file is less than 10k.
Just create an XML described in the sample code. I think it's simple and easy to understand. Just try it.
The following is a description of
The last type of special
Window Form supported by Microsoft is a generic form of pop-up
Window. Creating a pop-up is very simple—just use the
Window.createPopup(), which takes no arguments and returns a handle to the newly created Window.
var myPopup = window.createPopup();
Windows are initially created, but are hidden. They are later revealed using the pop-up object's
show() method and hidden using
hide() as shown below:
The value of Microsoft's special pop-ups may not be obvious until you consider that you have complete control over their appearance, allowing you to even remove the chrome of the displayed
Window. The authors do not encourage chromeless
Windows, scrollbars, and other GUI widgets for your site far outweigh the visual value of these widgets—use with caution.
