How to implement a Fading JavaScript Menu

Image 1

Introduction

I wanted to make a menu that faded in shortly after the page loads, plus I wanted to fade in any of the sub categories when I hovered over a parent category and (call me crazy) I wanted something that would work across browsers. About five hours later, I had created the Fading Javascript Menu and now I want to share it with all of you!

Using the Code

To get the fading JavaScript menu working for your site, save the source zip file to your web server. If you want to use the black and white CSS class, call menu.css or come up with your own theme. Next, add your js file reference and the css reference to the head section of your HTML file. Then add an onload event to your body tag and call the function LoadMenu(). This is all you need to do to get your fading JavaScript menu working. LoadMenu appends the document's body object with a table containing your menu. You only need to position your menu where you would like it by editing the relative positioning styles in the ReturnMenuTable function of the menu.js file.

Here are the functions with explanations for the fading menu.

First, let's declare our variables to hold our setTimeout ids.

JavaScript
var SubOneCategoryOneInputTimeout = 0;
var SubTwoCategoryOneInputTimeout = 0;
var SubOneCategoryThreeInputTimeout = 0;

Now create a new HTML table, write the fading menu table to the new table and append the new table to the bottom of the document body.

JavaScript
function LoadMenu()
{
	TableElement = document.createElement("table");
	TableElement.align = 'center';
	NewRow = TableElement.insertRow(null);
	NewCell = NewRow.insertCell(null);
	NewCell.innerHTML = ReturnMenuTable();
	document.body.appendChild(TableElement);
	setTimeout('DelayMenuLoad()', 600);
}

This function fades in the main menu on page load after a 6 ms pause.

JavaScript
function DelayMenuLoad()
{
	displaySubCategory('Home', 0);
	displaySubCategory('CategoryOne', 0);
	displaySubCategory('CategoryTwo', 0);
	displaySubCategory('CategoryThree', 0);
	displaySubCategory('CategoryFour', 0);
}

Next, we created our browser specific menu table's HTML and we append the output to the bottom of the page's body. The first five divs are parent categories. Some will have sub categories, others will not. If they do not contain any sub categories, then they will only hightlight on the mouse over event and will redirect to another page when clicked. The next three divs are sub categories. The thing to watch out for is to not let the sub category get highlighted or fade out if it is not visible. We must test whether the category has faded in first.

JavaScript
function ReturnMenuTable()
{
  if(navigator.appName == "Microsoft Internet Explorer")
  {
    return '<tr><td><table id="menutable" runat="server" align="center" width="200px"
                     style="position: relative; top: -815px; left: -20px;" border="0"
                     cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">' +
            '<tr>' +
              '<td>' +
                '<div id="Home" style="position: relative; left: -90px; top: 19px;
                    filter:alpha(opacity=1); opacity: 0.0;">' +
                  '<input id="CategoryHomeInput" class="button_menu_class"
                       style="cursor: pointer; width: 55px; height: 19px;"
                       onmouseout="MouseOutCategory(\'CategoryHomeInput\');"
                       onmouseover="MouseOverCategory(\'CategoryHomeInput\');"
                       onclick="javascript:parent.location.href=\'/home.html\'"
                       value="  Home  "></input>' +

  }
}

Here's how we fade in the sub categories. Internet Explorer uses the style attribute called filter and it can range from "alpha(opacity=0)" [100% opaque] to "alpha(opacity=100)" [0% opaque]. For gecko based, Chrome, Opera and Safari browser, use the style attribute opacity which ranges from "object.style.opacity = 0" [100% opaque] to "object.style.opacity = 1" [0% opaque]. This function is recursive, meaning if the opacity is greater than zero, the function will call itself slowly reducing the opacity giving us the fading in and fading out.

JavaScript
/*  displays the sub category when the parent is moused over  */
function displaySubCategory(SubCategory, CurrentOpacity)
{
	if(!document.getElementById(SubCategory))
		return;
	if(navigator.appName == "Microsoft Internet Explorer")
	{
		if(CurrentOpacity == 0)
			CurrentOpacity = 1;
		CurrentOpacity = CurrentOpacity + 50;
		document.getElementById(SubCategory).style.filter =
                      'alpha(opacity=' + CurrentOpacity + ')';
		if(CurrentOpacity < 100)
			setTimeout('displaySubCategory("' +
                               SubCategory + '",' + CurrentOpacity + ')', 140);
	}else
	{
		CurrentOpacity = CurrentOpacity + 0.5;
		document.getElementById(SubCategory).style.opacity = CurrentOpacity;
		if(CurrentOpacity < 1)
			setTimeout('displaySubCategory("' + SubCategory + '",' +
                               CurrentOpacity + ')', 140);
	}
}

Here's how we hide the sub categories. This function although similar to the function above it works in an opposite manner to fade out menu items.

JavaScript
/*  hides the sub category when the parent is moused out  */
function HideSubCategory(SubCategory, CurrentOpacity)
{
	if(document.getElementById(SubCategory) && navigator.appName ==
             "Microsoft Internet Explorer")
	{
		if(CurrentOpacity > 0)
		{
			CurrentOpacity = CurrentOpacity - 50;
			setTimeout('HideSubCategory("' + SubCategory + '",' +
                                CurrentOpacity + ')', 140);
			document.getElementById(SubCategory).style.filter =
                                'alpha(opacity=' + CurrentOpacity + ')';
		}
		else
		{
			document.getElementById(SubCategory).style.filter =
                                'alpha(opacity=0)';
			SubOneCategoryOneInputTimeout = 0;
			SubTwoCategoryOneInputTimeout = 0;
			SubOneCategoryThreeInputTimeout = 0;
		}
			
	}else if(document.getElementById(SubCategory))
	{
		if(CurrentOpacity > 0)
		{
			CurrentOpacity = (CurrentOpacity / 99.0) - 0.5;
			setTimeout('HideSubCategory(\'' + SubCategory + '\',' +
                                CurrentOpacity + ')', 140);
			document.getElementById(SubCategory).style.opacity =
                                CurrentOpacity;
		}
		else
		{
			document.getElementById(SubCategory).style.opacity = 0;
			SubOneCategoryOneInputTimeout = 0;
			SubTwoCategoryOneInputTimeout = 0;
			SubOneCategoryThreeInputTimeout = 0;
		}
	}
}

These simple functions are for hightlighting and unhighlighting the top categories without any sub categories when moused over or out.

JavaScript
/*  highlights the category when moused over  */
function MouseOverCategory(Category)
{
	document.getElementById(Category).style.backgroundColor='#66ccff';
}

/*  unhighlight the category when moused out  */
function MouseOutCategory(Category)
{
	document.getElementById(Category).style.backgroundColor='#ffffff';
}

Next we handle the mouseover event for a category with sub categories. SubOneCategoryOneInput and SubTwoCategoryOneInput are related because they both belong to the same parent category. Therefore, they will fade in and out together.

JavaScript
/*  highlights the category when moused over  */
function MouseOverCategoryWithSubCategories(SubCategory)
{
	document.getElementById(SubCategory).style.backgroundColor = '#66ccff';
	if((SubCategory == 'CategoryOneInput' || SubCategory == 'CategoryTwoInput') &&
             document.getElementById('SubOneCategoryOneInput').style.opacity < 0.01)
	{
		displaySubCategory('SubOneCategoryOneInput', 0);
		displaySubCategory('SubTwoCategoryOneInput', 0); 
	}
	else if((SubCategory == 'CategoryOneInput' ||
             SubCategory == 'CategoryTwoInput') && document.getElementById(
             'SubOneCategoryOneInput').style.filter != undefined)
	{
		displaySubCategory('SubOneCategoryOneInput', 0);
		displaySubCategory('SubTwoCategoryOneInput', 0);
	}
	else if(SubCategory == 'CategoryThreeInput' && document.getElementById(
                  'SubOneCategoryThreeInput').style.opacity < 0.01)
		displaySubCategory('SubOneCategoryThreeInput', 0);
	else if(SubCategory == 'CategoryThreeInput' && document.getElementById(
                  'SubOneCategoryThreeInput').style.filter != undefined)
		displaySubCategory('SubOneCategoryThreeInput', 0);
}

Here, we handle the mouseoout event for a category with sub categories.

JavaScript
/*  displays the sub category when the parent is moused over  */
function MouseOutCategoryWithSubCategories(SubCategory)
{
	document.getElementById(SubCategory).style.backgroundColor = '#ffffff';
	if((SubCategory == 'CategoryOneInput' || SubCategory == 'CategoryTwoInput') &&
             document.getElementById('SubOneCategoryOneInput').style.opacity > 0.01)
	{
		SubOneCategoryOneInputTimeout = setTimeout('HideSubCategory(
                      \'SubOneCategoryOneInput\', 99)', 120);
		SubTwoCategoryOneInputTimeout = setTimeout('HideSubCategory(
                      \'SubTwoCategoryOneInput\', 99)', 120);
	}else if((SubCategory == 'CategoryOneInput' || SubCategory ==
             'CategoryTwoInput') && document.getElementById(
             'SubOneCategoryOneInput').style.filter != undefined)
	{
		SubOneCategoryOneInputTimeout = setTimeout('HideSubCategory(
                      \'SubOneCategoryOneInput\', 99)', 120);
		SubTwoCategoryOneInputTimeout = setTimeout('HideSubCategory(
                      \'SubTwoCategoryOneInput\', 99)', 120);
	}
	else if(SubCategory == 'CategoryThreeInput' && document.getElementById(
                  'SubOneCategoryThreeInput').style.opacity > 0.01)
		SubOneCategoryThreeInputTimeout = setTimeout('HideSubCategory(
                  \'SubOneCategoryThreeInput\', 99)', 120);
	else if(SubCategory == 'CategoryThreeInput' && document.getElementById(
                  'SubOneCategoryThreeInput').style.filter != undefined)
		SubOneCategoryThreeInputTimeout = setTimeout('HideSubCategory(
                  \'SubOneCategoryThreeInput\', 99)', 120);
}

This function highlights the sub category and clears any of the recursive setTimeout function calls so that the item does not fade out. The trick here is to not highlight or change the cursor to default when the button is not displayed.

JavaScript
/*  highlights the sub category when moused over  */
function MouseOverSubCategory(SubCategory)
{
	/*  If the sub category is not visible then do nothing  */
	document.getElementById(SubCategory).style.cursor = 'Default';
	if(navigator.appName != "Microsoft Internet Explorer" &&
              document.getElementById(SubCategory).style.opacity == 0)
		return;
	else if(navigator.appName == "Microsoft Internet Explorer" && 
		(document.getElementById(SubCategory).style.filter == undefined || 
		document.getElementById(SubCategory).style.filter == 'alpha(opacity=0)'))
		return;

	/*  change the cursor to the more interactive pointer setting and highlight the item  */
	document.getElementById(SubCategory).style.cursor = 'pointer';
	document.getElementById(SubCategory).style.backgroundColor = '#66ccff';

	/*  If mousing over a parent category who's sub categories are already 
		fading out - stop the fade out by clearing the fadeout function
                  using the setTimeout id 
		stored in the SubOneCategoryOneInputTimeout variables  */
	if(SubCategory == 'SubOneCategoryOneInput' ||
		SubCategory == 'SubTwoCategoryOneInput')
	{
		if(SubOneCategoryOneInputTimeout > 0)
		{
			try
			{
				clearTimeout(SubOneCategoryOneInputTimeout);
			}catch(asdf){}
		}
		if(SubTwoCategoryOneInputTimeout > 0)
		{
			try
			{
				clearTimeout(SubTwoCategoryOneInputTimeout);
			}catch(asdf){}
		}
	}else if(SubOneCategoryThreeInputTimeout > 0)
	{
		try
		{
			clearTimeout(SubOneCategoryThreeInputTimeout);
		}catch(asdf){}
	}
}

Finally, we need to handle the mouseout event for the sub categories. We store the setTimeout ids so that if the user hovers back over the button before it faded out of site, we can cancel the fade.

JavaScript
/*  unhighlight the sub category when moused out  */
function MouseOutSubCategory(SubCategory)
{
	document.getElementById(SubCategory).style.cursor = 'Default';
	if(navigator.appName != "Microsoft Internet Explorer" &&
             document.getElementById(SubCategory).style.opacity == 0)
		return;
	else if(navigator.appName == "Microsoft Internet Explorer" && 
		(document.getElementById(SubCategory).style.filter == undefined || 
		document.getElementById(SubCategory).style.filter ==
                      'alpha(opacity=0)'))
		return;

	/*  If mousing out of a sub category set the background-color to its default value.  
		Begin to recursively fade out and stored each setTimeout id so 
		the fadeout can be canceled if necessary  */
	document.getElementById(SubCategory).style.backgroundColor='#ffffff';
	if(SubCategory == 'SubOneCategoryOneInput' || SubCategory ==
             'SubTwoCategoryOneInput')
	{
		//  filter alpha opacity is from 0 - 100
		if(navigator.appName == "Microsoft Internet Explorer")
		{
			SubOneCategoryOneInputTimeout = setTimeout(
                               'HideSubCategory(\'SubOneCategoryOneInput\', 99)', 120);
			SubTwoCategoryOneInputTimeout = setTimeout(
                               'HideSubCategory(\'SubTwoCategoryOneInput\', 99)', 120);
		}else //  style.opacity is from 0 - 1
		{
			SubOneCategoryOneInputTimeout = setTimeout('HideSubCategory(
                                \'SubOneCategoryOneInput\', 99)', 120);
			SubTwoCategoryOneInputTimeout = setTimeout('HideSubCategory(
                                \'SubTwoCategoryOneInput\', 99)', 120);
		}
	}else if(SubCategory == 'SubOneCategoryThreeInput')
		SubOneCategoryThreeInputTimeout = setTimeout(
                      'HideSubCategory(\'SubOneCategoryThreeInput\', 99)', 120);
}

I've been programming for about six years now and thankfully its not one of those fields that stagnates year after year. Programming always feels new and it forces you to learn new things and if you don't stay on top of the newest standards you'll be looking for a different line of work.

Programming is fun… after you get past the excruciating part.
