Javascript Menu. DHTML Menu.

  • Use a mouse to move a menu as a usual window. Also you can create the menu where each submenu can be "separated" from the menu (MS Office toolbar-like mode).
  • When the page is scrolled the menu remains visible. The menu can "float" along one or two coordinate axes.
  • There can be multilevel menus - create as many rows of the menu as necessary. Any submenu in its turn can include different number of columns.

Recent Questions

Q: I want to use this menu with ASP. Can the link items NOT open a new window?
For ASP the current window needs to be used with whatever value is in the link parameter.


A: JavaSript menu uses window.open or href-method depending on the target parameter.
If you set "" or "_self" target the menu uses href-method and if youset "_blank" or frame name the menu uses window.open and opens your link in a new window.

You should use the following parameter
  var titemTarget = "_self";
or
  var titemTarget = "";

Please, see also individual items targets, for example:
{|The Team, http://www.domain.co.uk/receptionist.htm, _blank,}
Change "_blank" to "" or to "_self".


Q: I have another question:

Menu behavior in SAFARI is does not properly work compared to EXPLORER.

If you have a look at the site via SAFARI, please do the following:

Example:
Under menu "Projets" select "par pays" then "Afrique" then "Algerie".

It will then show a left hand menu. Please select "2008/2010".

It will correctly show content.

Then if you try to select again via menu "Projets"; the html menu navigation does not show anymore the submenus. You still need to click a menu without submenus, like "News", and then afterwards you can click "Projets" and the system will again show submenus.

This strange behaviour does not appear in EXPLORER nor in FIREFOX.

A: The problem is in your frame structure after you open "Projets" select "par pays" then "Afrique" then "Algerie".

Your menu won't work correctly with such frame structure.

You should use the following frame structure for all pages at once:

--------------------------------------------------------
topFrame with the html menu navigation
--------------------------------------------------------
Algerie_leftFrame |
with | Algerie_mainFrame
Tree Menu |
--------------------------------------------------------
bottomFrame
--------------------------------------------------------

and write your init function in the following way:
dm_initFrame("frmSet", 0, 2, 0);

Or you shouldn't use Algerie_leftFrame and Algerie_mainFrame at all (use one mainFrame) and write your init function in the following way:
dm_initFrame("frmSet", 0, 1, 0);


Q: I am very interested in using your deluxe menu products for my new website design, particularly the Tree Menu. I've been looking at the javascript tree source and am a bit worried that the links used will not be recognised by Search Engine robots - do you have any information regarding implementation of your menus so that the links are fully visible to search engines ?

A: You can generate search engine friendly code.
Deluxe Tree is a search engine friendly menu since v2.4.
To create a search engine friendly menu you should add additional html code within your html page:

<div id="dmlinks">
<a href="http://deluxe-menu.com">menu_item_text1</a>
<a href="http://deluxe-tree.com">menu_item_text2</a>
...etc.
</div>

To generate such a code use Deluxe Tuner application.
You can find this GUI in the trial package.
Run Tuner, load your menu and click Tools/Generate SE-friendly Code (F3).



Q: It actually does work - I got it to work, however some functions like transparency is not working, trial version pop up disappeared and transition when the submenu item comes down is not working - it simply pops the menu down.


A: Please, notice that transitional effects don't work in Firefox.
Effects work in IE only. You can find this info here:
