Couple of style changes
Hi... I got 2 questions... Im using the Short/Long Display version of Dbman..

I want to change the background colour of the dropdown menus to something other then the default white on the main search page..

Also is there an easy way to alternate the colour of the rows on the result page.. ie green, white, green, white.. and so on...

Help is appreciated... Justin

You will have to use Javascript codes (and these codes only work in MIE 4.0 or above, and do not work in Netscape).

Some really good Javascript sites are the following:

Good luck!

For alternating your colors, this is the easiest way to do it.

Set up two variables in your .cfg file --


$row_color[0] = '#FFFFFF';
$row_color[1] = '#009000';


You can make these any color you want.

In sub html_view_success, make the following change

Code:

for (0 .. $numhits - 1) {
$color = !$color;
print qq|<tr bgcolor="$row_color[$color]">|;
&html_record (&array_to_hash($_, @hits));
print "</tr>";
++$rec_count;
}

Thanks for the replys..

After having looked at the source code on the homepage of javascript.com (because half way down the page is exactly how I wanted the dropdowns).. They seem to use CSS to do this..

May question now is where do I place the CLASS="select".. I tried in here, but got errors..

|; print &build_select_field ("DestinationTo", "$rec{'DestinationTo'}"); print qq|

Once again thanks for your help.. Justin

damn, I wish I had thought of doing it that way first....

I alternate colours like so -

if((int($bnum / 2)) == ($bnum / 2)) {
$bgcol = "#E4E4E4";
} else {
$bgcol = "#FFFFFF";
}

$bnum++;

if the $bnum is an integer (ie, no decimal) then it will use the E4E4E4 colour, otherwise it will use FFFFFF.

Cheers

That was sorta how I did it at first, too. But this seemed easier. Smile

You don't need to use a CLASS, you can just put:
<style type="text/css">
select {background-color:#ffff00;}
</style>


...under your <HEAD> tag.

Hope this helps
