wrapping long text

I've noticed (in Explorer and Mozilla on Windows 2000) that TMG has problems with multiline menu items. It seems that menu item which goes next overlaps previous or maybe text is not wrapping when longer than menu item width. This does not happen with Netscape or Opera or any Mac browser.

Also, on all browsers and platforms wrapped lines (other than first) seem to loose focus when mouse is over, which causes menu to close when it should not, and also hyperlinks do not work.

You may check this problem at:
[link is removed]

Other less important problems noticed are:
-menus often do not autoclose (all browsers except Netscape)
-menus are not functional until all page content is loaded
-Netscape (6 and 7) flickering on Mac
-menu freeze on Mozilla 1.4 (when moving mouse over a little fast)

Anyway, I like very much TMG. It's compact, very flexible and source code looks fine.

Thank you very much, Isole! All these problems will be fixed in next product version which will be issued soon.

I've just implement a TMG menu on an existing customer of mines' site.. It is now database driven and TMG seems to handle the large tree structure (over 200 nodes) quite easily..

however, some of the links are quite long and I'm having the same problem as discussed earlier.. when the text wraps.. the wrapped lines are no longer part of the link and the popup loses focus (closing the popup)

An example of the structure can be found here: [link is removed]
Is there a way around this?

Please, contact us at We'll send you version with custom geometry so you'll be able to set size for each separate item.
