So it took a while but I finally finished the vertical css menu builder. It comes after yet another re-write of the menu builder core class and lots of hair pulling.
You can choose from 24 background images and 33 pointer images and combine them as you see fit. This gives you almost 800 different combinations, though not all of them might look good. Of course this is without taking into consideration that you may also choose an endless combination of colors, rounded corners, width and text alignment, so there should be a possibility of having some fun with this new release.
There are also a few kudos I would like to give, since I could not be this creative by myself. Some of the menus have been inspired by the menus found on e-lusion.com, dynamicdrive.com and cssdrive.com, so thank you very much for sharing your ideas.
Furthermore I implemented the Antialiased filled Arcs/Ellipses functions found on mierendo.com to give smoother roundness in some of the background images. Thank you very much for this great function, much appreciated.
So I guess that is about all I have to say about that, so why not just start building your own vertical css menu.
