Hello,

I have a menu utility. Before compiling and linking the menu, I need to know the coordinates in pixels otherwise it is placed in the upper left corner of the page, 0,0. In DW MX, I opened the page and located the spot where I want the menu to appear and went into view code thinking it would reveal the position of the cusor or point of spacebar but it does not. How do I determine the location where I want to put the dropdown menus?

I have guessed fairly closely with 220 by 70 px but it has to be an easier way of determining the position in pixels. I was unable to locate this in DW Help.

I would appreciate if you could let me know how to determine this quicker. Thanks.

Thanks.

In Design View go to main menu:
Under View, Rulers, show in pixels.

Or:

Draw a layer and position the top left where you want your menu to go, then in code view, the layer will have its precise position. Then delete the layer.
