[sip-comm-dev] sip-communicator.org menu bar


#1

Hi web gurus :),

I've been experiencing an annoying problem with the menu bar of
sip-communicator.org. As depicted in the attached screenshot, there
appears to be some space between the menu bar item and the popup menu
that pops up on hover. The problem is that I move the mouse to select
some item from the popup menu, I inevitably pass through the space in
question and most of the time it causes the popup menu to disappear.
I'm using Mozilla Firefox. It would be a relief if it could get fixed.

Thank you,
Lubomir

Hi,

Strangely, but it isn't such a big space on my Firefox (Win XP). How does it
sound a solution like this one:

Some tiny delay before hiding the menu, that will make possible the cursor
to reach the body of the menu before it disappears? I believe that will be
pretty easy to be done in js.

Cheers,

Vladimir Vassilev

Hi Lubo,

I've checked with Firefox 3.6 on Snow Leopard and there isn't any
problem. On which OS do you run Firefox ?

The CSS file has been modified (reducing the margin-top value of 2px),
do you still have the problem ?

Bye

Damien

I have posted this problem already twice, so I would second (or is it
forth?) this.

A workaround is holding the mouse key pressed and marking things, then
the menu stays open.

Some tiny delay before hiding the menu, that will make possible the cursor
to reach the body of the menu before it disappears? I believe that will be
pretty easy to be done in js.

Well, I'd rather expect the popup menu to not be detached from its
associated menu in the menu bar... But my HTML and CSS knowledge is a
bit rusty so I'll have to agree with whatever's offered.

It works for me as well. And I think it also looks better now. Thank
you very much! (When I loaded the page after you notified me about the
change, it didn't seem to make a difference and I had to hit Refresh
to make it work.)

Best regards,
Lubomir
