  • Submenus can be shown in 4 ways: - From from left to right + upwards and also left to right. - From right to left and also from right to left + upwards (e.g. for right-to-left languages).
  • Use images for icons, backgrounds of submenus and items. Using images you can create menus entirely based on graphics.

Recent Questions

Q: Currently, I have Deluxe Menu installed on my website.
However, I have noticed that the javascript mouseover menu picture width for the top level icon changes. For example, the mouse over picture for "Beauty" is one length whereas the mouse over icon for "Home & Garden" gives me one and a half pictures. I have illustrated this in the attachment.

Please could you advise me on how I could resolve this problem.

Thank you for taking your time to read this email.
I look forward to receiving your reply.

A: You can try to use the following parameters to use combinedbackground for your items:

  var beforeItemImage = [,]; //left-side image for normal and mouse over state
  var itemBackImage = [,]; //background or image for normal and mouse over state
  var afterItemImage = [,]; //right-side image for normal and mouse over state
  var beforeItemImageW = '';
  var afterItemImageW = '';
  var beforeItemImageH = '';
  var afterItemImageH ='';

But you should create a small images in any Graph Editor, for example:
button_n_back.gif
button_n_left.gif
button_n_right.gif
button_o_back.gif
button_o_left.gif
button_o_right.gif



Q: My website is created on Front Page.
Is it easy to incorporate your menu into a website created on Front Page?

A: Deluxe Menu wasn't developed as Dreamweaver/Frontpage extension,BUT you can use it as standard Javascript files. To install the menuinto your html page:

1. open the page in Dreamweaver/Frontpage
2. open html source code of the page
3. add several rows of code (<script> tags), For info see:
http://deluxe-menu.com/installation-info.html

That's all.
To create and configure your menus use Deluxe Tuner application(included into the trial package):

Q: I created a custom error page for a site, but the menu would not display.

I found that this was due to the erroneous "current directory" in the bad link test, for a non-existent directory.

which is: level2/level3/

I changed the script code from:
<script type="text/javascript">  var dmWorkPath = "DMworkfiles/";</script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="DMworkfiles/dmenu.js"></script>

to:

<script type="text/javascript">  var dmWorkPath = "DMworkfiles/";</script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="/DMworkfiles/dmenu.js"></script>

adding the "/" before "DMworkfiles/dmenu.js" source reference allowed the .js file to be found in the root directory and the menu would display.

The problem is that the little menu "expansion" arrow .gif cannot be found in the "current working directory" of level2/level3/. just little "blanks" show.

I tried changing:
  var dmWorkPath = "DMworkfiles/";

to:
  var dmWorkPath = "/DMworkfiles/";

but that did not enable the display of the arrows.

I also had to prefix all of the links in the menu with a "/" to indicate the root directory because of the "current directory" for the bad page.

I hope I have explained the problem sufficiently.
What am I doing wrong or missing here?


A: 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'm wondering if you can use the Link Item of the Deluxe Menu to have ASP code, similar to yoru FAQ below, only replacing the Javascript with ASP?

Q: I want to use Javascript instead of usual links for menu items. How can I do that? A: To do that you should add a function word "javascript" in the URL field of an item, e.g.:

  var menuItems = [
[text, "javascript:alert('Hello, world!')", icon1, icon2],
];
