  • Blog Post: Creating a JavaScript Drop-Down Menu in FrontPage

    We posted a new article on MSDN about creating JavaScript drop-down menus . If you read my earlier post about creating a drop-down menu , you may be interested in this article. The article uses a somewhat different method to show and hide menus than the code I showed earlier and also provides an example...
  • Blog Post: Creating Image Mouseovers

    After I learned JavaScript, the first thing I did was create an image mouseover. The one I created was relatively simple, just a few lines of code. I've since seen many more complex examples that do basically the same thing as my simple little script. I'm not sure whether complex is better...although...
  • Blog Post: Creating a scrolling marquee

    In FrontPage, you can create a scrolling marquee by clicking Insert and Web Component . (You can find it listed under Dynamic Effects.) However, sometimes it's greyed out. This is because FrontPage inserts a MARQUEE element, which is only viewable from Internet Explorer. (Opera also displays the MARQUEE...
  • Blog Post: Creating Mouseover Effects

    I know, it's been awhile since I've posted a tip. A couple weeks ago I was in SQL Server training, and last week was taken up with catching up on everything I postponed during training. Now I'm back and my tip for today is creating mouseover effects. We get frequent questions about how to create mouseover...
  • Blog Post: Creating a Drop-down Menu

    We had an article on MSDN for creating a drop-down menu, but after repeated attempts, I, like many of our customers, couldn't make the code work, so we're in the process of removing it. We will (mostly likely) eventually replace it. In the meantime, though, I promised that I would provide an alternative...
  • Blog Post: Creating a drop-down list that links to other pages

    You've seen them. All the big Web sites have them. Now you want one, too. Perhaps you have localized sites and you want a cover page with a drop-down that lists the different languages into which your Web site is translated so that visitors can select the language they want to view. Maybe you want to...
  • Blog Post: Add my page to a visitor's Favorites list

    Here's a tip that Jim Buyens * , a FrontPage MVP, contributed awhile ago that shows how to create a link that adds a Web page to a visitor's list of Favorites. Switch to Code view and add this script where you want the hyperlink to appear: <script> if (navigator.appName.substring(0,9) == ...
  • Blog Post: Open a page in a new window of a specific size

    I've often seen questions in the FrontPage Programming newsgroup for code to programmatically open a page in a browser window that is of a specifc size. Of course, using the target attribute of the A element, you can easily open a new page in a new browser window, but it will be the same size as other...
  • Blog Post: Retain a visitor-specified value in a drop down list

    Here's a tip that Jim Buyens * , a FrontPage MVP, contributed some time ago for retaining a visitor-specified value in a drop down list. If you're working with databases in FrontPage, the Database Results Wizard is probably what you use most, if not every, time you want to show database results on a...
  • Blog Post: Dates, dates, and more dates...

    We get a lot of requests from people who want to put the current date on their Web pages, so I thought I would start my first official FrontPage tip with code to help accomplish this. There are a couple ways that you can get the current date onto your Web pages. One uses client-side JavaScript, the...
