Apply Jump Menu Go Behavior in Microsoft Expression Web 2

Jump Menu Go behavior lets you associate a button (Go button) with a jump menu. In that case a jump menu should already exist in the document. Though a jump menu does not need a go button to execute, selecting an item from the jump menu causes a URL to load on its own. But a go button may be required if you want to re-select the already chosen item, which may not be registered just by choosing it from the jump menu.

When you add a jump menu go behavior, your go button will perform the “jump” action to take to the associated URL. Selecting a menu item from the jump menu will no longer direct the user to the related page then.

To create a Jump Menu Go button, follow these steps:

  1. If a jump menu is not already created create one. How do I create a jump menu?
  2. Add a button object near the jump menu.
  3. go_button 

  4. In the Behaviors task pane, choose Insert and from the menu select ‘Jump Menu Go’.
  5. jump_menu_go_beh 

  6. You would be prompted with ‘Jump Menu Go’ dialog box, as shown below:
  7. jump_menu_go_dlg 

  8. Choose the menu for Go button to activate and click OK.
