How to use Vista Buttons with FrontPage

    To install the dropdown menu into your html page you should do the following things:

    1). Create and save your buttons in any temp folder using Vista Buttons application. You canuse "Save as HTML" function.

    Save menu

    You can enter any name you like, for example enter "menu":

    Save menu name

    So you'll have menu.html file and "menu-files" folder with all menu files.

    Generated files

    2). You can add javascript dropdown menu to a single page or to many pages using Shared Borders, Include Page or Dynamic Web Template so that you won't have to add it into each page separately.

    Insert a dropdown menu to a single page in FrontPage

    - Start FrontPage and open the web page that you will be inserting the script into. When the page opens, it should look like this:

    Insert menu in FrontPage

    - Open the generated in Vista Buttons menu.htmlpage in any text editor. Copy all code within the following tags:
          <!-- Begin -->
          <!-- End -->

    - Go back to FrontPage. In the Design mode decide where you would like the dropdown menu to appear in your page. It helps you add the menu code in the correct place. We have decided to place it at the top of the page. Click in the spot you want the code to appear in and type the phrase: your code here

    Insert menu in FrontPage

    - We will now be inserting the JavaScript code into the body section right where we typed the phrase in the previous step. To do this, switch to HTML View.

    Insert menu in FrontPage

    - Go to the "Edit Menu" with FrontPage and select the "Paste" option to paste the menu code that we copied to the clipboard earlier. Since the phrase we typed was highlighted, it will be replaced when we paste the code in.

    Insert menu in FrontPage

    - Now you should copy the "menu-files" folder into the same folder with your index.html page.

    Copy menu files in FrontPage

    - Notice that in the Design mode your menu may be displayed not in the proper way. It is normal. You should view the menu in the Preview mode.

    Design mode in FrontPage

    - That's all. You've added all necessary code to your page, so let's test it. Select the Preview mode to display the page live (in Internet Explorer).


    - If everything goes well, save your document and upload it and the "menu-files" folder to your web site. If something seems wrong, double-check that you followed all the steps correctly.

    - If you still run into trouble, we'd be happy to assist you further. You can post your problem to us at , and meanwhile describe your files in details.
