Q: We have a question and a problem.

This is a link to our website with your menue:

http://domain.bon.at/philosophie.html

Down the navigation point "FAQґs" is a submenue like darm, diverses, einlagen etc....)

If you click on a link in this submenue a new window open _BLANK!

Is it possible to open the new site in a popup in dhtml drop down menu, like 800 x 600 or something?

A: You should paste the following code inside 'Link' field of menuItems (you can do it inDeluxe Tuner):

javascript:window.open('http://www.google.com','_blank','height=600,width=800, status=yes,toolbar=no,menubar=no,location=no');


Q: You will see I got the first level looking amazing.. this is exactly what I wanted. The interesting thing I figured out was not to use the item border.. this was messing things up. You may notice that when each item highlights.. there is a 1px white line at the separators.. but this is not produced with the item border, but rather from the separator itself which I made in two 1 pixel lines, one blue, on white.. this created that effect.

So now my only problem left is to figure out how to bring this look into the submenus. I was thinking it would be nice to use the separators in the same way throughout the submenus. There does not however seem to be a way to do this. When I tried inserting a separator into a submenu.. nothing happened... I am probably doing this wrong.

Can you please show me how to create the same look I have in the first level in the submenus.. this would be helpful.

I must say, this menu is finally starting to look the way I originally envisioned it. I am very happy. =o)

Thank you so much for all the help you have given me.


A: To add separators in submenus you should write it so:

 ["|-",] //first level submenus
   ["||-",] //second level submenus
and so on.

Try that.


Q: Can your dhtml popup menu work in conjunction with a scroll wheel?


A: You cannot scroll submenus using scroll wheel when you set
  var smSmartScroll=1;
To scroll your submenu you should move your mouse.

But you can use scroll wheel when you set
  var smSmartScroll=0;


Q: Is it possible to change the background color of just one of the menu buttons within a javascript expand menu?

A: Yes, it is possible.
Use Individual Item Styles.

Create Individual Item style and assign it to your submenu items usingDeluxe Tuner.

  var itemStyles = [
["itemBackColor=#800000,#FF8080"], //style0
];
