What's the best way of doing drop down lists?
I have tried to investigate the best approach to implementing drop down lists, but am still not sure how best to do it in the following situation. Can anyone point me to some relevant examples or tutorials?
I have a horizontal list of options (read from a Mysql database) which are displayed in a thin horizontal frame within a frameset. For each item on the list there may be between zero and, say, 10 sub options, again from the database. The user must be able to select at the sub-option level in order to display specific information in the other frames within the frameset. I already have the code for selecting at the option level but now need to do it at the sub-option level instead.
So, I would now like to have a neat drop down list of sub-options when they click a main option (or possibly hover over it), and then refresh the other frames when they click a sub-option from the drop down list.
I have also seen a solution using Layers - is that what I need to do?
Any suggestions will be gratefully received.
