JavaScript

Mobile menu

I made a menu that shows on small widths. The problem:

1) I resize the page - http://port-80-x4s5t1z04x.treehouse-app.com/ 2) open the menu drop down, 3) close the drop down 4) make the page big again and the menu disappears....

jQuery(document).ready(function($){

    /* prepend menu icon */
    $('#nav-wrap').prepend('<div id="mobileMenu">Menu</div>');

    /* toggle nav */
    $("#mobileMenu").on("click", function(){
        $("#nav").slideToggle();
        $(this).toggleClass("active");
    });
});
#mobileMenu {
    display: none; 
}

#nav li {
  list-style: none;
  margin-left: 1em;
  float: left;  
}

/* Hidden menu */
#nav ul { 
  overflow: hidden
  position: absolute; */
  display: none;
  padding:0;

}

#nav ul li {    
  float: none;
  margin: 0;
  padding: 0;
}

#nav a {
  padding: 5px;
  display: block;
  text-decoration: none;
}

#nav a:hover {
    background: #f8f8f8;
}

#nav li:hover > ul {
    display: block; /* show dropdown on hover */
}

EDIT: see the full code working here with a little extra styling http://codepen.io/Limey_88/pen/xbaPeK

Hey,

I finally read this correctly and get what is going on. Try this for your code

You may want to change the style to suit your own site, but that should help you out.

Any questions, please feel free to ask and I will take a shot at them.

$(document).ready(function(){

    /* prepend menu icon */
    $('#nav-wrap').prepend('<div id="mobileMenu">Menu</div>');
    $('#nav').hide();

    /* toggle nav */
    $("#mobileMenu").on("click", function(){
        $("#nav").slideToggle();
        $(this).toggleClass("active");
    });

     /* hide if not needed */
  if ($(window).width() > 750) {
    $("#nav").show(); 
    $("#mobileMenu").hide();
    }
});

/* display  mobile click area on resize up */
$(window).resize(function() {
    if ($(window).width() >= 750) {
    $("#nav").show(); 
    $("#mobileMenu").hide();
    } 
 }); 

/* show click area on resize down */
$(window).resize(function() {
    if ($(window).width() < 750) {
    $("#mobileMenu").show();
    $("#nav").hide(); 
    }
});

  $("#menu").Toggle(true);
  }
});

Hey,

I have updated the above answer with the correct details. Check out the codepen link at the top to see it working. Style them how you like but this is just some CSS from my project atm.

Hope this helps you out. It was quite a fun challenge, actually :)

Amazing help!!! thanks a lot!!!

Haha. No problem at all. I'm happy to help as I'm currently knee deep in learning a lot of jQuery at the moment, too.

Have fun coding ^_^
