At times we need to display a vertical menu for users. This is very easy with Field Engine and can be done with a few simple steps.

We need to include the Field Engine files:

<link href="FieldEngine.css" rel="stylesheet" />
<link href="FieldEngine-Defaults.css" rel="stylesheet" />
<script src="fe-browser.js"></script>

Then we need to specify the CSS for the hex grid, we're going to make our borders black and our hexes white:

.field-hex .field_view_inner {
background-color: black;
.field-hex .field_location {
background-color: white;
color: black;

Then we specify the scrollable table with a ul tag and the class field-vertical-menu

<ul class="field-vertical-menu">
<li level="1" onclick="switchToTable">Table</li>
<li level="1" onclick="switchToHex">Hex</li>

And we'll have a fully functional vertical menu.
