jQuery quickie: Slot machine style navigation Navigation is one of the things you'll see on every website. I wanted to give this part a little bit extra life, and when I saw a movie yesterday that included slot machines, it suddenly hit me. Using jQuery and some basic CSS and HTML, we could add some sweet slot machine style animation to a normally boring kind of navigation. Since it's not such an advanced technique, this is also a jQuery quickie. Already wondering how it works? As usual, we want to keep our HTML as short and clean as possible. <ul id="jquerynav" class="navigation"><li><a href="#" class="marcofolio">Marcofolio.net</a></li><li><a href="#" class="rss">RSS</a></li><li><a href="#" class="twitter">Twitter</a></li><li><a href="#" class="jquery">jQuery</a></li></ul> Take note of the different class and id attributes we need to use. This is all the HTML we need to make this example work. Although the CSS isn't very spectacular, there is something that is the actual key to make this technique work. jQuery That's about it!

SharePoint navigation - Make current item highlighting work - it One thing that bugs me (and a lot of clients of us) is that SharePoint's top menu (AKA Global navigation) highlighting is not working as we expect it to:If you create a subsite directly underneath the root web, and make it appear on global navigation, It will get highlighted when selected. BUT if you create a subsite somewhere else (say in the Site Directory), and then make it appear on global navigation, it will not get highlighted when you navigate to it. If you create a publishing page it gets highlighted when visited. BUT if you create a page in a document library it doesn't. This is an example of the current and the desired situation. Recently one of our clients asked me to fix this. * If you are not interested in the how to, you can simply download the final product from here. Starting point:While developing SharePoint, the product team has decided to use asp.net's menu control for navigation.

bluebit.co.uk - JQuery expandable navigation (menus) jQuery expandable navigation using nested UL's posted on Tuesday 10th February, 2009 by mark Before I begin, I am not claiming this to be a definitive technique, in fact as a relative new comer to jQuery it can no doubt be vastly improved, however I thought I would share my technique and invite people to tear it apart if they so wish! My aim Create a navigation menu using UL's and LI's with nested UL's that expand when their parent LI is clicked I will be using the minified jQuery 1.3.1 library to achieve this. HTML Markup The above HTML markup will display an unordered list with 4 list items, the second of these list items having an unordered list nested within, this UL has 3 list items of its own. The CSS As I will be using a class to toggle the visibility of the nested UL's on and off, we need to write a small piece of CSS so that the class will actually do something when it is applied. Thats it! The jQuery ... not quite finished! I also added the following code to my CSS: Thanks for reading!

Opciones del QuickLaunch de Wss3 mediante SPNavitaionProvider - Un problema muy común en WSS3 es el de conseguir un menú de navegación que muestre las opciones en función del usuario y las unidades de negocio que estén activas en el portal. El menú de navegación de wss3 nos permite navegar a las distintas listas o bibliotecas que creemos. También nos permite dar de alta nuestras propias opciones desde la página de configuración de inicio rápido. El problema que tendremos en un proyecto real, será que las opciones que tengan que aparecer dependerán del usuario logado y los elementos de negocio implementados, y no podrán ser opciones estáticas. Ejemplo del problema en el mundo real En Renacimiento estamos trabajando en un cliente que tiene que desplegar más de 150 portales con una infraestructura Wss3 (no MOSS), cada portal puede tener activo una serie de features que en conjunto implementan las funcionalidades requeridas por el negocio.
