These code samples show you how to build VSMacros projects, add–ins, and wizards to make your teams more productive and to bend Visual Studio .NET 2003 and Visual Studio .NET 2005 to the ways you like to work.
The setup includes a extremelly powerfull menu generator, no knowledge for java or html needed at all. Just enter all the properties via a very good wizard, and the generator will produce a folder with all the needed files which you must upload it to your website. Then all you have to do to present the menu on any page (html or aspx), is to add a one-line script tag at the <head> and another one at the <body> tags, nothing else.
I am using it for many days now, if somebody has questions please ask.
Make sure to read all the lisence file of the xmlmenu setup. It is completely free, no cost at all, even for commercial use, but it needs from the user to confirm first some logical statements, for example all the published pages on the web must be completely free and not password protected etc.
This is the most simply thing we can do for people who worked so much and giving us such a powerfull tool(s): to respect their license statements and their name as authors.
xmlmenu has NO cross-browser problems neither overlapping misbehavior. Just set the "Hack overlapping" property to TRUE in order to ensure the fine behavior in any older browser than currents.
Using the menu: It is just incredible. All the menu choices can include html content, not just plain text or icons. That means we can fit almost an entire page in a menu choice or subitem (many levels!) and make it appear when the user places the mouse over it.
