Q: After creating and using a menu, is it possible to insert/change the position of a menu item?

For instance, I am using years in a submenu and the current year always needs to be at the top.

Is this possible with drag and drop or by some other means in the Tuner v2?


A: Yes you can do it.
You can find all info in our Help.

Please, see the text below:

To select a group of items you can use Shift and Ctrl keys.

To rename an item click on it and hold a mouse cursor for a second. Or use item parameters window.

To move items select items you want and use a mouse drag'n'drop method.

To copy items select those you want and use a mouse drag'n'drop method holding a Ctrl key.Also you can use a contextual menu - a right mouse click on the list of items.


Q: Thank you for your reply. I have run the example sent by you. Your dhtml menu example has horizontal menus and it hides all the menus.

But I am using xp vertical menu. In that I have Home,Sales,Customer Support,Reports,Access Control menus.

For Admin login I need all the menus including submenus.

But for employee login i need Home , Sales, Customer Support menus and i need only few sub menus only.

Please help me with this issue.

A: You can try to use API functions in that case:

function dm_ext_changeItemVisibility (menuInd, submenuInd, itemInd, visibility)

Q: Pls help me with another question.

I have an horizontal menu in which the submenus drop down (as in example # 1 you have in your web).

For the first level items (which are horizontal), I do not want item spacing or itemPadding, that is:
  var itemSpacing=0;
  var itemPadding=0;

However, for the second and third level menu items, that drop down, I do need spacing and padding, like this:
  var itemSpacing=1;
  var itemPadding=1;

How can achieve this if, we have only one set of parameters??

Thank you very much and best regards


A: You should use Individual Styles.

You should set the following parameters:

  var itemSpacing = 0;
  var itemPadding = 0;

and create individual style for submenus
  var menuStyles = [
["menuBackImage=images/subm_back.gif","itemSpacing=1","itemPadding=1"], // add Spacing and Padding to the style which is used for the third level menu items.
["columnPerSubmenu=2"],
["itemSpacing=1","itemPadding=1"], //style 2
];

You should assign this style for the second and third level menu items

Q: Also, when viewing the webpage with the dhtml list menu, my browser tells me that it is blocking scripts and ActiveX applications. I have to override it. Is there a way to prevent this so my customers don't get this message, or will it go away when I post it to my domain?

A: You should adjust your browser settings.

and set

There is no way to enable these preferences automatically, in othercase there are no reasons to create security preferences.
