Q: I cannot see the shadow on the top items of the menu. Can you help me?

Q: I see that you have the demo of the menu working over a frame so that it displays over the lower frame, vertical top to bottom.
However I have played around with your demo and can't seem to replicate the same feature.
Could you please tell me what I have to set to make the easy dropdown menu float over the lower framed window?

A: To initialize the cross frame menu call dm_initFrame() function instead of standard dm_init() function within data.js file:

dm_initFrame(framesetID, mainFrameInd, subFrameInd, orientation);

framesetID - id attribute of the frameset;
mainFrameInd - index of the main frame (where the top-menu is placed), >=0;
subFrameInd - index of the subframe (where the submenus will be shown), >=0;
orientation - frame orientaion: 0 - top-to-bottom, 1 - left-to-right; 2 - bottom-to-top; 3 - right-to-left.

For example, for the following structure:

<frameset id="frmSet" rows="185,*">
<frame id="frame1" src="cross-frame-horizontal-1.htm">
<frame id="frame2" name="testlink.htm" scrolling="no">
</frameset>

the dm_initFrame() function call at the end of data.js file will look like:

dm_initFrame("frmSet", 0, 1, 0);


Q: Do you have an extremely simple example of modifying a menu with the JavaScript API? I've played with the example on the site, but I have trouble removing the other menus without breaking it.

I just want to use the API to change the icon on the menu items.

A: You should use the following function:
function dm_ext_changeItem (menuInd, submenuInd, itemInd, iParams)

<script language="javascript" >
dm_ext_changeItem(0, 0, 1, ["", "", "new_icon.gif", "new_icon_o.gif", "",,""]);
</script>



Q: I was wondering if there is a way to disable links on a page for the script menu.I am creating a site where, in a certain mode, the page is in preview and Idon't want the links to work.

A: To disable your menu items you should set the following parameter to disable all items:

  var itemTarget="_";

Or you can disable items individually.

["Home","testlink.html", "", "", "", "_", "", "", "", "", "", ], //disabled
["Product Info","", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", ],
 ["|Features","testlink.html", "", "", "", "_", "", "", "", "", "", ], //disabled
 ["|Installation","", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", ],

You can also use function dm_ext_changeItem (menuInd, submenuInd, itemInd, iParams)
function to disable items on-the-fly, for example:

dm_ext_changeItem (0, 2, 3, ["", "", "", "", "", "_", "", "", ""]);
