How to use Vista Buttons with FrontPage

    To install the drop 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 drop 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 javascript menu to many pages by shared borders in FrontPage

    - Start FrontPage and open your website. When the website opens, it should look like this:

    Open website in FrontPage

    - To create the shared border page you should do the following things:
    Choose "Format/Shared Borders..." from the main menu. This will bring up the Shared Borders dialog.

    Shared Borders dialog

    - Make sure "All pages" is chosen in the 'Apply to' section. Check the "Top" checkbox to activate the top shared border page and click the OK button to close the dialog.
    A new subfolder should appear in the Folder List section in the main FrontPage window with the top.htm file in it. This is our top shared border page.

    Shared Borders dialog

    Notice that you can choose any other shared border position to install the drop menu as well.

    - Now you can add a menu for your site. Open the shared border page (double-click top.htm in Folder list window) and switch to the Design view mode. Decide where you would like the menu to appear in your page. Click in the spot you want the code to appear in and type the phrase: your code here

    Open website in FrontPage

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

    - Go back to FrontPage. Switch to HTML View. 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

    - To display the mouseover state images correctly you should change vbImgPath parameter. Find the following code
    var vbImgPath="menu-files/"
    and change it to
    var vbImgPath="_borders/menu-files/"

    Copy menu files in FrontPage

    - Now you should copy the "menu-files" folder into the same folder with your top.html shared border. (You should show hidden files to see files of your website. Go to "Tools/Folder options").

    Copy menu files in FrontPage

    Copy menu files in FrontPage

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

    Design mode in FrontPage

    - Select the Preview mode to display the top.html page live (in Internet Explorer). Notice that your mouseover images can be not displayed when you hover over menu items in the Preview mode. It is normal. You'll see all images when you open index.htm page in the Preview mode.

    Preview mode in FrontPage

    - That's all. You've added all necessary code to your page, so let's test it. Open your index page (double-click index.htm in Folder list window) and switch to the Preview mode.
