asp drop down menus - help
 
Hi,

I have been trying to figure out how someone else made these drop down menus using asp in Dreamweaver for a site I now have to maintain. I will say now I have no experience of asp or much coding at all, just trying to get into it. Been working through some tutorial but found nothing which helps.

Anyway I have a page with a side navigation that has 2 step levels of drop down menu's. I have figured out how it all works but not sure if this ("stands_graphics_tools") references to anything else and now I need to add an extra section and cannot get it to working. Do I need to add a script somewhere else?

This is the code:
HTML Code:

<% If  script_name = "stands_graphics_tools" Then %>
                                <tr>
          <td colspan="2" align="left" valign="middle"><img src="/images/navspacer_01.gif" width="153" height="1" /></td>
        </tr><td colspan="2" align="left" valign="middle" class="navCellOffA" onmouseover="this.className='navCellOn';" onmouseout="this.className='navCellOffA';"><% Else %><td colspan="2" align="left" valign="middle" class="navCellOff" onmouseover="this.className='navCellOn';" onmouseout="this.className='navCellOff';"><% End if %>
        &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;<a href="stands_graphics_tools.asp" class="navLink">Stands, Graphics &amp; Tools  </a></td>
        </tr>
        <tr>
          <td colspan="2" align="left" valign="middle"><img src="images/navspacer_02.gif" width="153" height="1" /></td>
        </tr>
       
        <% If  script_name = "stands_graphics_tools" Then %>
        <!--#include file="_sidebar_stands_graphics_tools.asp" -->   
        <% End if %>

Thank you in advance and sorry for my lack of experience. I am super willing to learn so if you think I should do learning first then try and solve this later please don't be shy to say.

The ASP code is only been used to show the html conditionally.

Code:


<% If  script_name = "stands_graphics_tools" Then %>
The above is saying: if the variable script_name is equal to "stands_graphics_tools" then, run the code below or show the code below.

                                <tr>
        <td colspan="2" align="left" valign="middle"><img src="/images/navspacer_01.gif" width="153" height="1" /></td>
        </tr><td colspan="2" align="left" valign="middle" class="navCellOffA" onmouseover="this.className='navCellOn';" onmouseout="this.className='navCellOffA';">


<% Else %>
The Esle above means: otherwise(if the variable script_name is not equal to "stands_graphics_tools" then, run the code below or show the code below.)
        <td colspan="2" align="left" valign="middle" class="navCellOff" onmouseover="this.className='navCellOn';" onmouseout="this.className='navCellOff';">

<% End if %>
And finish here

        &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;<a href="stands_graphics_tools.asp" class="navLink">Stands, Graphics &amp; Tools  </a></td>
        </tr>
        <tr>
          <td colspan="2" align="left" valign="middle"><img src="images/navspacer_02.gif" width="153" height="1" /></td>
        </tr>
       
 
<% If  script_name = "stands_graphics_tools" Then %>
This is the same bit instead to run a code it conditionally asks to Include the file called "_sidebar_stands_graphics_tools.asp"

        <!--#include file="_sidebar_stands_graphics_tools.asp" -->   

<% End if %> This indicates the end if that condition.

Basically ASP is not creating the code here but displaying the apropriate code depending on conditions. Hope it helps.
