I am trying to learn how to make a menu like apples widget menu. If you don't know what I am taking about take a look.

http://www.apple.com...oads/dashboard/
I am talking about the Widget Browser with 3 columns that helps you find a widget you are looking for.

My first question is what is this kind of thing called. And if anyone knows of hand where I might be able to find info on how to create one for myself.

Thanks

I don't think it has a name... it's a multi-column nested list, I guess.  This should be simply enough to do with a nested associated array in JS.
Seriously... if people don't start reading this before posting, I'm going to consider not answering at all.

Do you think you would be able to point me to some information that would help me figure out how to do that? I have not been able to find anything myself.

Thanks Allot

Having never used a tutorial, I don't know of any.  It's just like having parallel arrays...
