How to use

Just include MooDropMenu.js or MooDropMenu-min.js and the MooDropMenu.css to your HTML:

<script type="text/javascript" src="/js/MooDropMenu-min.js"></script>
<link  href="/css/MooDropMenu.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" media="screen" />

And the menu structure

<ul id="nav">
    <li><a href="#">Home</a></li>
    <li>
        <a href="#">Blog</a>
        <ul>
            <li><a href="#">Archive</a></li>
            <li>
                <a href="#">Categories</a>
                <ul>
                    <li><a href="#">Javascript</a></li>
                    <li><a href="#">Mootools</a></li>
                    <li><a href="#">PHP</a></li>
                </ul>
            </li>
            <li><a href="#">Last comment</a></li>
        </ul>
    </li>
    <li><a href="#">Contact</a></li>
</ul>

And then initialize the menu

window.addEvent('domready',function(){


    // The simple way
    $('nav').MooDropMenu();



    // The more advanced way
    $('nav').MooDropMenu({
        onOpen: function(el){
            el.fade('in')
        },
        onClose: function(el){
            el.fade('out');
        },
        onInitialize: function(el){
            el.fade('hide').set('tween',{duration:1000});
        }
    });


    // Using the MooDropMenuClass
    var dropMenu = new MooDropMenu($('nav'),{
        onOpen: function(el){
            el.fade('in')
        },
        onClose: function(el){
            el.fade('out');
        },
        onInitialize: function(el){
            el.fade('hide').set('tween',{duration:1000});
        }
    });

}
