Tree style Menus

jQuery - Menu tree

Just a simple four level vertical sliding menu tree. Clicking any of the 'orange' list items will expand that sub level and contract any other open level. Re-clicking the same list item will close that level and any sub levels that are open.

Tested in IE6, IE7, Firefox, Opera, Safari (PC) and Google Chrome.

jQuery File Tree

jQuery File Tree is a configurable, AJAX file browser plugin for jQuery. You can create a customized, fully-interactive file tree with as little as one line of JavaScript code. Currently, server-side connector scripts are available for PHP, ASP, ASP.NET, JSP, and Lasso.

What i like about this menu, is its ability to style icons based on file extension and using AJAX to fetch file information on the fly. More over you can customize expand/collapse event and speeds.

Collapsable menu

This is really a tutorial showing how to use Mootools to create menus. The result of one of the menus is interesting and gives you a collapsable box with an animated effect on mouse over. Besides this being a great "Navigation" script I would like to mention that Woork is a great blog that I follow myself. You will find many good posts here explaining coding stuff in a very relaxed and easy to understand way.
