I am using ASP.NET 3.5 with EO.Web.dll (v5.0.16.2) and the sub menu's on a cross frame horizontal menu is completedly transparent (or without style) with the exception of the sub menu text. Does this version support ASP.NET 3.5?

Hi,

There is no fundamental difference between ASP.NET 3.5 and ASP.NET 2.0 from the controls point of view. And we support both well. So the style shouldn't have anything to do with that. If you set your menu .css in a css file, check whether you have set the menu's CssFile property, so that this css file will be automatically ejected to the target frame. Otherwise you won't get any styles for your sub menus.

Also try to run our sample code and see if it works. If it does, the following post may help you find out the problem:

I tried creating a simple cross frame horizontal menu from scratch with no special formatting and I still get the transparent submenu. Any other ideas?

This one:

The source code for the sample is on your local machine. So you may want to load it and run in your environment to see if the same problem occurs.

Thanks

The demo works fine. For some reason it appears as if no styles are being applied to the sub menu. I AM NOT using a css file. Everything is inline.

Hi,

We do not know what would cause that. I would recommend start by comparing the sample code and your code and see if you can find out the trigger point, we will then go from there.

Thanks

Mystery solved. The menu CANNOT be effectively nested within a ASP.NET Update Panel. Sorry to have wasted your time. I should have realized this much sooner. Thanks for your help!

Ah! I believe the menu can live inside an UpdatePanel happily without cross frame. But that does not work with cross frame. Thanks for the update!
