Q: Is it possible set a menu item to pressed when a page is loaded when you have multiple drop down menus on the page?  

I have 2 menus side by side and I was able to set the pressed item with the JavaScript API as described in your FAQs but when I try to show an item as pressed  in a second menu on the same page, the corresponding item in the first menu shows as pressed. Is there a different function that I can use for this or a way to reset the menu ID in the second menu to start from where the first menu left off so I can use the same function?

A: See the first parameter in
dm_ext_setPressedItem (menuInd, submenuInd, itemInd, recursion)
function is index of the menu.

So, if you use several menus on the one page you should use differentmenuInd parameter.

For example you have:

<script type="text/javascript" src="menu/data1.js"></script> //menuInd=0
...
<script type="text/javascript" src="menu/data2.js"></script> //menuInd=1
...
<script type="text/javascript" src="menu/data3.js"></script> //menuInd=2
...
<script type="text/javascript" src="menu/data4.js"></script> //menuInd=3

So, for the second menu you should write:

dm_ext_setPressedItem (1, 2, 5)



Q: I just purchased your Deluxe Menu maker. Wonderful tool!  

I have made a menu, uploaded it to my HTML folder at Typepad in the correct place and tried several OTHER places too.  

I have inserted the js snips into the head and body in all permutations of combinations.  

I checked it each time by both opening my site and viewing source.  

The menu is there. But it cannot be seen on the page. Never has been seen. Not even a hint of it being there.  

I tried .js .file   AND .js    AND CSS.  

No menu.  

I checked on four browsers.  

No menu.  

I verified the files are in my index place by copying them to notebook.  

I have done all of the above about 20 times EACH.

A: See, now you have:

It is not correct. You should call dmenu.js file only once.

Please, delete the second code.

There is now engine .js files

dmenu.js
dmenu4.js
dmenu_add.js
dmenu_dyn.js
dmenu_key.js
dmenu_cf.js
dmenu_popup.js
dmenu_ajax.js

and data file on your server.



Q: I'm confused in how to do this. I want to change the background color of one of the javascript and menu items. If I understand correctly I go to INDIVIDUAL STYLES and should be able to change the background color for one of the menu items there. Under item appearance I tried to change itemBackColor - but I can't seem to make it take affect (I tried clicking OK but its under the Style Names, so thats probably not it.

A: You should click "Edit Individual Styles" button.

On the 'Item Styles' tab click "Add style" button.

Set itemBackColor and click "OK" button.

Select the item you want to change the style for and assign new style for it. Go to Item Parameters window 'Item style' field.

  var itemStyles = [
["itemBackColor=#EB2999,#590937"], //style0
];

  var menuItems = [
["Home","testlink.html", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", ],
["Product Info","", "default.files/icon1.gif", "default.files/icon1o.gif", "", "", "0", "", "", "", "", ], //style0


Q: Can I ask a technical question? I am using the menu in a frameset, and I would like for the drop down menu selected branch to sty highlighted after the user moves the mouse to another window (where the menu brings up a new page), just so the user knows where he/she is. Is that possible?

A: But if you open links in the another frame (window) the initial frame with your menu isnot reloaded, so the clicked item will be highlighted.
You should set the following parameters:
  var ttoggleMode=1;
  var tpressedFontColor="#AAAAAA";

You can also set the following parameter to save menu state:
  var tsaveState=1;
  var tsavePrefix="menu1";

If you install the menu without frames. On your pages you should call the following function/functions to expand/highlight items, for example:

<script>
dtreet_ext_expandItem (dtreet_ext_getItemIDByIndex (0, 0), 1);
dtreet_ext_setPressedItem (0, dtreet_ext_getItemIDByIndex (0, 1));
</script>
