Ok, since I se a limitation in the grid in iRule I´ve done my whole layout as a background instead of importing single bottons into the panels. That make it possible to place all buttons in a more
satisfying way in my opinion even if that means that my transparent links and buttons dosent fit perfect over my layout in iRule. In my world the choice stands between perfect design / 99% functionality or boring standard design and 100% function.
At fist I make the "home" layouts for the things I want to do, HTPC, Tv, Lights etc... If on a layout we have a power button that i want to have a "popup" connected to, I do as following.
When I´m done with my home layout I´m making an exact copy of that one and take a transparent box over the part of the home layout i want dimmed out and adding a new menu infront of the dimmed area.
In iRule i then import the home layout as a backgorund in page 1. Over the power button Im putting a transparent link botton that links me to page 2.
On page 2 I´m importing my dimmed out version with the popup effect as a background layer. In panel 2 i then make all the dimmed out area as transparent link buttons that links back to panel 2. Done!
In some cases I get a sliding effect between the two panels but in most cases it looks like a popup window I dont know the reason tho...
For example: in my HTPC Living Room panel i have the following pages, HTPC home, HTPCPower, HTPCMore, ButkickerLivingRoom, HTPCKeyboard, Sabnzb (url page), CouchPotatoe (url page) its much work but worth it.
Sorry for the bad english but its not my native language and I didnt attend much in school
