Seperating the top level menu buttons

  Asked By: Shauna    Date: Jan 07    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 891

I have no idea how to seperate the top level menu buttons. By default,
they are all rendered adjacent to one another. I would like to create
some space in between them.
Any ideas?
I would guess that could be handled in the stylesheet, but I am having
a hard time finding out which style needs to be modified, and what to
use to modify it..

The appearance of the top-level navigation menu  is affected by a
combination of specific properties passed to the ASP.NET menu control
(e.g. in your master page or a template override), the markup
generated by the menu control (which tends to use *lots* of
tables...sigh), and the CSS styling applied to the result. Which
gives you a number of places to try.

Unfortunately when it comes to certain types of formatting, I've found
the markup from SharePoint:AspMenu to be particularly unyielding. In
particular, I've not found any way to inject additional inter-item
spacing, either upstream of the markup generation (through control
properties) or downstream (via CSS selectors). I'm also anxious to
hear if anyone else has been succesful.

Try adding the Developer Toolbar extension to IE, or the Web Developer or
Firebug extensions to FireFox. I believe both of those will allow you to
see what CSS classes are used by a given button by mousing over it.

IE Developer Toolbar:
