How to Setup

  • Place the .class file in the directory containing the HTML page into which you want to insert the menu. You can place the class into a different directory and correct the path in the CODEBASE= parameter, for example:

    <applet Code=apMenu.class Codebase="different/directory/" Width=480 Height=31>
    or
    <applet Code=apMenu.class Codebase="http://yoursite.com/" Width=480 Height=31>

    If you see a "class not found" message, this means what your browser can't find the .class file specified. This may mean a spelling or Case seNSitiVe mistake in the CODE= parameter, a wrong location in the CODEBASE, or that you've forgotten to copy the .class file to the necessary directory.
     
  • Cut and paste the applet tag used in the example (under "HTML source" title) to your HTML page in a position you want the menu to appear.
     
  • Modify menu parameters to fit your web site style and needs.  The common syntax for menu parameters is:

    <param name="ParameterName" value="ParameterValue"> 

    For more info about parameters see menu parameters.
     
  • Some examples use external resources for menu (images - gif and jpg files; sounds - au files; txt files with menu items), so it's necessary to copy these files to appropriate directories according paths used in the menu parameters.
     
  • To enable Javascript support see javascript tips and javascript call example.
