Javascript Menu. DHTML Menu.

  • Tune menu parameters manually or using Deluxe Tuner. Then add several rows of a code within html page - your menu is ready!
  • Use special JavaScript functions for: Dynamic changing of items (text, link, icons and even individual style!). Making a menu item active/inactive. Addition/removing of items. Changing of visibility of items. Getting the information on any menu, submenu and items. Other tricks.
  • Opportunity to control the menu from the keyboard.
  • Cross-frame mode allows you to build full-featured menus on the pages that use frame-based structure. But for all that it's not necessary to insert any additional code into all the pages - just specify some additional parameters of the menu.

Recent Questions

Q: 1: For the deluxe-menu, can I keep a submenu shown even when my mouse pointer is NOT over the submenu anymore (besides the delay functions?) and hides only after a mouseclick somewhere (like the Microsoft menu of outlook)?

2: Is there a way to use the smartscrolling function (for a vertical menu) on the MAIN menu instead of only for the submenu's?


A: 1) Unfortunately, you can't do it.
You can use Deluxe Tree,

2) Yes, you can't use scrolling in the main menu. But if you have verylarge menu you can use multilevel menu,
http://deluxe-menu.com/multilevel-menu-sample.html

Theoretically we can do scrolling in the main menu, but we think that it will be better touse multilevel menu in that case.


Q: Could you please just help me - I have been using quirks mode to create our customer sites and would now like to start using a proper doctype like:



But when I change it, all the down menus dhtml break on the sites.

A: Try to specify all units in "px":

  var itemPadding="3px";

  var itemStyles = [
["fontStyle=normal 11px Lucida SansUnicode","fontColor=#FFFFFF,#FFFFFF","itemBackColor=#DE2829,#C62829","itemBorderWidth=0",
"itemBorderColor=#FFFFFF,#C21212","itemBorderStyle=solid,solid",
"itemBackImage=blank.gif,blank.gif","itemWidth=160px"], ["itemWidth=129px"],
];

  var menuStyles = [
["itemSpacing=0", "itemPadding=8px"]
];




Q: Hello, I am trying out your dhtml menu and would like to load an iframe into one of the menus, how would I go about this?


A: If you want to insert <iframe> object inside a menu item you can do following things.

You can paste any html code into menu items, for example:

["item text <iframe src="link"></iframe>", link, ...]


Q: In my previous email asking about your menu program's ability to display a different color word on a menu item when the site is on that selected page, I made a mistake - I was experimenting with Vista xp1 style, the black/blue shiny dhtml menu templates.


A: The menu has only two states normal and mouseover. We'll try to add the pressed state in the future.

You can set a pressed item using Javascript API:

function dm_ext_setPressedItem (menuInd, submenuInd, itemInd, recursion)

Sets a current pressed item.
menuInd - index of a menu on a page, >= 0.
submenuInd - index of a submenu, >= 0.
itemInd - index of an item, >=0.
recursion = true/false - highlight parent items.

But notice, to use dm_ext_setPressedItem() you should know ID of selected item and subitem.
You can't get this ID after you reload your page. That is why you should write your own code on PHP.
