    CSS menu with onclick instead of hover

    Hi all,

    I have created a simple css menu, which opens the submenu when the mouse hovers over the menu items. This goes a little too fast, so I want to change it into a click (onMouseUp I suppose) so the submenu items appear when one of the menu items is clicked. Is it possible with css to achieve this?

    My css code:
    Code:
    #menu li {list-style-type: none;}
    #menu li a {text-decoration: none; color: #000000;}
    #menu ul li:hover {position:relative; list-style-image:url(images/list1.png);}
    #menu ul { line-height: 35px; font-size: 22px;}
    
    /*submenu*/
    #menu ul ul {
    	display: none;
    	position: relative;
    	line-height: 24px;
    	font-size: 18px;
    	list-style: disc;
    }
    #menu ul li:hover ul {display:block;}

    No. Use JavaScript to alter the css and add event handlers.

    Not as far as I know.

    Maybe use something like this as a guide using an onclick event handler.

    Hmm, I spoke too soon. When testing offline, everything works fine. When I test it online (in Internet Explorer and Chrome) it 'blocks' other code that I use for a simple lightbox. The page jumps to the top but no lightbox appears. Internet Explorer also shows an error: 'subMenusO' is undefined.

    This is the code for the lightbox, if it helps you.
    Code:
    var curr_lb_div; 
    var is_modal = false; 
    	 
    function ShowLightBox(lb_div, isModal) 	{ 
    	    document.getElementById(lb_div).style.display='block'; 
    	    document.getElementById('fade').style.display='block'; 
    	    curr_lb_div = lb_div; 
    	    if (isModal) 
    	        is_modal = true; 
    	    else is_modal = false; 
    	} 
    	 
    function HideLightBox() { 
    	    if (document.getElementById(curr_lb_div)) 	    { 
    	         document.getElementById(curr_lb_div).style.display='none'; 
    	         document.getElementById('fade').style.display='none'; 
    	         curr_lb_div = ''; 
    	    } 
    	}
    Do you know what could be the problem?


    EDIT: I noticed some other code also uses window.onload, so I merged them together. Now IE doesn't show the error anymore, but the lightbox still isn't showing...
    Or shall I move this topic to the Javascript section?

    Nevermind, I solved it! I don't know how, but I guess something went wrong with uploading the files.
