A jump menu can provide a list of several links to remote documents, email links, graphics, or any other type of file that can be linked to within a HTML document. It uses a pre-coded behavior that allows visitors to make a selection t in turn triggers an event to open the selected link.
Insert a Jump Menu
- Click on the menus Task Panes, and then Behaviors to open the Behaviors Task pane.
- Click the desired location for the jump menu.
- Click the down arrow on the Behaviors Task Pane and then Jump Menu.
- When the Jump Menu Properties dialog box opens place a checkmark in the “Select first item after URL change box”. This option returns the first item to the first position after a selection has been made (useful when the user uses the back button to return and make another selection).
Also, you may elect to open the new document or web page in a new window. If so, change the drop down list labeled “Open URLs in:” to “New Window”.
- Click the Add button. For example type the first entry “Select One” in box labeled “Choice”, leave the value empty. Click OK.
- Click on Add button again to add another choice. When adding “Values” you can use Absolute or Relative URLs that link to web pages, Word documents, or PDF files.
For example, type University of Scranton for the Choice and http://www.scranton.edu as the Value. Click OK to close the Add Choice box.
- To add another choice click on the Add button again. Type in a Relative Address for a web page that is inside your directory or use the fictional page listed in the example below.
For example, fictional page called Results. Type ‘Results’ for the Choice and for the Value type “results.doc.” this would open the fictional Word document called Results from your web directory.
