Need a drop down / fly out menu for large Cre loaded store - the menu link needs to come from a link in the top menu of our site and flyout on mouseover.
The menu is to replace the existing vertical menu on left hand side of our site - [url removed, login to view]
To display Level 1 (top level) and level 2 sub-categories only
Top level categories need to go alphabetically across the page, not down - with level 2 categories listed underneath
Menu needs to calculate how many columns and rows it needs to generate based on screen size so menu does not go off-screen widthways. Width of menu can be set at a maximum of of a % of the screen width (75% for example) - Vertically it can scroll with the page when a visitor scrolls their mousewheel
Needs to be very nice looking (semi transparent, radial corners, top level category text to be formatted differently to level 2 sub-categories...) may like to include lightbox effect where the screen darkens behind the menu when it is displaying.
A basic example of a menu similar to what we are after is the current e-bay site [url removed, login to view] (see 'shop by category' link next to their logo, top left hand side.... please note you have to click on their link... we want mouse over).... when you click on their link and then click on the link at the bottom of the page... 'see all categories' it generates a page with all level 1 and level 2 categories page - we need this to occur when you click on the linking word from our top menu, instead of just mousing over it.
a link to their page showing all categories is here: [url removed, login to view]
Menu is to close on mouseout - when the mouse moves off the menu.
We would like to see examples of menus if possible either that you have done or on any other website before we award this project.
please PM us for further information if required.
attached is a quick mock up to give an idea of what we are after - also see the current menu in our website

The left hand columnof this page shows you the amount of top level and level 2 categories there is currently (about the same or more than e-bay): [url removed, login to view]
