Recent QuestionsQ: We would like to use standard images for the main menue and add popup menues by using deluxe menue. The popups are triggered by hovering the cursor above the main menueimages and they should stay visible as long as the cursor is in the image.
If the cursor leaves the image, the popup should be closed unless it is in the popup menue.
A: See, you can use one Deluxe Menu (image-based) with images for the mainitems and submenus or you can use several pop up menus for each image.
You should use onMouseover event.
Q: By the way, this is an issue at your site, too...
Have a look at
FireFox - when hovering over the Product Info or Samples buttons, the Deluxe Menu flash element disappears behind the drop-down menu.
I notice this pages states: "If for some reasons a submenu can't drop down over an object the latter will be hidden for a time when the submenu is shown.".
A: Unfortunately, it is really so.
Now there is no work around for this.
We'll try to fix this bug in the future version of Deluxe Menu.
Q: When I stay on one page (for example "Home") аlso must have the menu-point "home" another color or font. How can I make this?
A: You should set pressed item.
Please, check the following parameter
This parameter sets an index of an item that will be highlighted by default.
-2 - the toggle mode is disabled;
-1 - the toggle mode is enabled, but no items highlighted by default;
0,1,2,3,... - index of highlighted item in a top-menu.
Deluxe Menu v2.4 has only two states normal and mouseover. Now we'repreparing new version of Deluxe Menu. It saves it state after thereloading of the page. We're planing to release a new version during a month.
function dm_ext_setPressedItem (menuInd, submenuInd, itemInd, recursion)
Sets a current pressed item.
menuInd - index of a menu on a page, >= 0.
submenuInd - index of a submenu, >= 0.
itemInd - index of an item, >=0.
recursion = true/false - highlight parent items.
But notice, to use dm_ext_setPressedItem() you should know ID of selected item and subitem.
You can't get this ID after you reload your page. That is why you should write your own code on PHP.
You can also set the correct
parameter on each html page.
Q: I'm trying to shrink the vertical size of the sub-menu entries in my menu:
I think I've specified all the parameters correctly in data.js, but itТs hard to tell what affects the height of the submenu entries. Even reducing the type from 10pt to 8pt didnТt shrink them at all.
A: See, you set the following parameter:
var itemPadding = 7;
That is why you have such a big padding around the items.
If you don't want to change the appearance of the main items youshould create Individual Style for the subitems. For example:
var menuStyles = [
And assign this style for the first item in submenu.
