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.

Q: I need to include backgroundimages for my navigation, so I put them in the same folder where the "data.js" file can be found. I am using the deluxe tuner in order to call these files and it looks great in the preview. As soon as I save the file and load it in the browser, the background images are missing.
Any solutions for this problem?


A: Now you have such paths for all your images data.files/image.gif

  var itemStyles = [
["itemWidth=128px","itemBackImage=data.files/nav01_off.gif,data.files/nav01_off.gif"],
["itemWidth=128px","itemBackImage=data.files/nav02_off.gif,data.files/nav02_off.gif"],
["itemWidth=128px","itemBackImage=data.files/nav03_off.gif,data.files/nav03_off.gif"],
["itemWidth=128px","itemBackImage=data.files/nav04_off.gif,data.files/nav04_off.gif"],
["itemWidth=128px","itemBackImage=data.files/nav05_off.gif,data.files/nav05_off.gif"],
];

But you don't have images in "data.files/" folder. That's why youcan't see them.
Please, check all your paths.

You can use additional parameters to make menu paths absolute:

  var pathPrefix_img = "http://domain.com/images/";
  var pathPrefix_link = "http://domain.com/pages/";

These parameters allow to make images and links paths absolute.
For example:

  var pathPrefix_img = "http://domain.com/images/";
  var pathPrefix_link = "http://domain.com/pages/";

  var menuItems = [
["text", "index.html", "icon1.gif", "icon2.gif"],
];

So, link path will be look so:
http://domain.com/pages/index.html

Images paths will be look so:
http://domain.com/images/icon1.gif
http://domain.com/images/icon2.gif

Please, try to use these parameters.


Q: I am able to create the simple navigation bar but can't seem to get it to work in Yahoo SiteBuilder.

A: Deluxe Menu wasn't developed as Yahoo SiteBuilder/Dreamweaver/Frontpage extension
and wedon't have plug-ins for it.

To install the menu into your html page:

1. create and save .js file with your menu parameters in Deluxe Tuner
(you can use "File/Save as/HTML" function).

You can enter any name you like, for example enter "menu".
So you'llhave menu.html, menu.js files and "menu.files" folder with all menu files.

2. open your .html page in Dreamweaver

3. Copy generated menu.js file and "menu.files/" folder in the same folderwith your index.html page.

4. Open generated menu.html in any text editor and copy several rows of code (<script> tags),
For info see:http://deluxe-menu.com/installation-info.html

<head>
<!-- Deluxe Menu -->
<noscript><a href="http://deluxe-menu.com">Javascript Menu by Deluxe-Menu.com</a></noscript>
<script type="text/javascript" src="menu.files/dmenu.js"></script>
</head>
<body>
...
<script type="text/javascript" src="menu.js"></script>
...
</body>

That's all.



Q: Is it possible for the dhtml navigation to stay within a table for placement (in order to have a centered website content optimized for 1024x768 - and always have the content centered in the browser regardless of larger resolution sizes, etc.)? so the horizontal placement may vary but the vertical placement would remain the same.

I'm sure it is - but have not had success on implementing it.

A: You can place a menu in a TABLE or DIV with aligh="center".

Q: I am in the final stages of testing and need some advice and help.

I have two problems I am trying to address.

1) Arrows on dropdown menu select.

2) Load time.

Please notice, I have to use absolute paths for the dropdown menu select to work.

1) I can't get the arrows to show, so I tried to add the code for images in the first bold sentence below.

2) I tried to add the second line for absolute paths for links to increase load time in the second bold sentence. It appears that the load time is increased by about 3 seconds and that the menu is the last to load, even though I have tried to have this as the first html to load.

Neither one of my commands appear to work.

This site has over 10,000,000 items on it, and I can't wait to get this up and running. Your program is the perfect solution for anybody with a website.

A: 1) Now you have:

  var arrowImageMain=["mainmenu.files/arrv_blue_2.gif","mainmenu.files/arrv_white_2.gif"];
  var arrowImageSub=["mainmenu.files/arr_blue_2.gif","mainmenu.files/arr_white_2.gif"];

You should set your arrows in the following way:

  var arrowImageMain=["arrv_blue_2.gif","arrv_white_2.gif"];
  var arrowImageSub=["arr_blue_2.gif","arr_white_2.gif"];

2) Your menu is very large. I advise you to us AJAX like technology.

http://deluxe-menu.com/ajax-technology-menu-sample.html

You can also try the following things:

move all <script> calls into <head>, but delete dm_init() function from mainmenu.js file -- move them instead offiles calls, i.e.:

<head>
<script src=mainmenu.js>
...
</head>

...

<div><script>dm_init();</script></div>

It this case data will be loaded when <head> will load, but after thatdropdown menu select must be shown quickly.
Let me know about results.
