    Scrolling menu- how to

    Hello. Here is an example of what I am trying to recreate:
    http://www.flagsexpress.com/world/world.htm
    The two menus that allow you to scroll through the list of countries.
    I know this has to be soooooooooooooo easy but I am having difficulties figuring out the best route in Dreamweaver CS4 to create this scrolling list. I started using SPRY menu bar, but I don't know how to make the list scrollable. In fact, I actually can't even get the list to drop down when I roll over it when I test in a browser window!

    Please let me know if this is even the best option or if there is a better way of making these drop down lists.

    I appreciate your help.

    I think what you are looking for is how to create a form and add an options list..Try that in Dreamweaver.

    Best

    Do I really need to do a form if all I want is a list of links?

    I responded to your cross post in the Dreamweaver forum, but I don't I understood, b/c my response was the same as Tancredi.

    Do you want a list of links or a scrolling list of links?

    I need to recreate the same lists that are on this page:
    http://www.flagsexpress.com/world/030003.htm

    And I need to turn them into library items, so I can edit them all (theres hundreds of these pages) from one library item.

    I need to be sure that the list has a scroll bar, as the list is very long and won't fit on the browser window.

    I truely appreciate your help.

    Right, ok, so my post in the Dreamweaver forum is exactly what you're looking for. I haven't dealt with library items in DW, but I think they behave like server side includes.

    Ideally, it would be better to generate the lists in this drop down from a database, but it can be done statically.
