SharePoint 2010: Navigation Drop Down Styles

If you would like to stylize your navigation drop downs in SharePoint 2010 here are the 4 main key classes to update your CSS. If you are looking for SharePoint 2007 styles see my previous blog post here. The OOTB Navigation Drop Down CSS: COREV4.CSS .s4-tn ul.dynamic{ /* [ReplaceColor(themeColor:"Light2")] */ background-color:white; /* [ReplaceColor(themeColor:"Dark2-Lighter")] */ border:1px solid #D9D9D9; } .s4-tn li.dynamic > .menu-item{ display:block; padding:3px 10px; white-space:nowrap; font-weight:normal; } a:link{ /* [ReplaceColor(themeColor:"Hyperlink")] */ color:#0072BC; text-decoration:none; } .s4-tn li.dynamic > a:hover{ font-weight:normal; /* [ReplaceColor(themeColor:"Light2-Lighter")] */ background-color:#D9D9D9; }

Example (Not good design, but you get the point) /* Drop Down: Container Style */ .s4-tn ul.dynamic{ background-color:white; border:3px dashed #000; } /* Drop Down: Item Padding Style */ .s4-tn li.dynamic > .menu-item{ padding:10px 20px 10px 20px; } /* Drop Down: Hyperlink Styles */ .s4-tn li.dynamic > a{ font-size: 9pt; font-weight:normal; color:#000; } /* Drop Down: Hyperlink Hover Style */ .s4-tn li.dynamic > a:hover{ font-weight:bold; background-color:#0C0; color:#FFF; }

What it will look like:

Simply take the above 4 main CSS classes and add/edit/delete the properties to make your drop down style truly unique. Posted by Erik Swensonat 11:42 AM Labels: Branding, CSS, Drop Down Menus, SharePoint 2010


spsaml said... This is great! My problem is that there's a bad lag when the user moves off an item that has a flyout. I have a Top bar, 1st flyout, 2nd flyout design. When changing items in 1st the last item's flyout is still visible when the new item's flyout comes up. I can't find any answer. Any ideas? February 2, 2011 12:07 PM

Aaron said... Im looking after a SharePoint Foundation server, am I able to implement drop down menus or is it only with 2010 server? February 2, 2011 5:29 PM

Great post. I am sure this only applicable on Server and not Foundation. Is there any other option to get drop down functionality in the menu on Foundation other than a custom solution applied to a obviously customized masterpage? March 3, 2011 7:51 PM
