    Hello,

    I have two Site Menu controls with flyouts on the same page. The menus are almost identical except for the starting node and the max depth. They use the same data source and default skin.

    Unfortunately, the flyouts are not working the way I would like. One menu flys out and the other one does not fly out. Each menu works fine by itself because when I remove one then the other works just fine and vice versa.

    However, when they are both running at the same time on the same page then the second menu does not fly out. That is, whichever site menu control was added first is the only one that displays the flyouts.

    For example, imagine the first site menu is called CompanyMenu, as follows:

    --CompanyMenu
    ----FlyoutA
    ----FlyoutB
    ----FlyoutC

    The second site menu is called DepartmentMenu, as follows:

    --DepartmentMenu
    ----FlyoutX
    ----FlyoutY
    ----FlyoutZ

    However, the flyouts for X,Y and Z do not appear on the second site menu.

    Is there a rad menu setting or CSS or something that is causing the two site menu controls to interfere with each other? I already tried giving them different skins and different ID's.

    I appreciate your help.

    Thanks,
    Holly

    Hello, never mind. I figured it out. The max depth was incorrect.

    Thanks.

    And I had to put them in separate content placeholders.

    Hi Holly,

      I have a similiar menu design that requires the same set up.  I was wondering how did you the site menu control up to display the different sections. 

    Did you make Company Memu a page the assign children to it?  Same for Department menu?

    How do you tell the site menu control to only display children under Company Menu?


    My requirement is for three menus, each menu is a catogory with a category image above each fly out menu. 

    Thanks for any help,
    David
