  • Submenus drop down over all the objects of the page (select, flash, object, embed, applet). 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.
  • These effects will make your menu more attractive and stylish. You can cast a shadow on the menu and submenus, set transparency. Among available transitional effects there are such as fade, mosaic, random dissolve, slide out and many others.
  • Create individual styles and assign them to any submenu and item. Use individual styles to achieve stunning effects!

Q: Is it possible to expand vertical collapse menu in a predefined way?

A: You can expand some items by default.
Add '+' sign before items text in that case:

["+Deluxe Tree: XP Style","", "deluxe-tree.files/xpicon1_s.gif", "", "", "XP Title Tip", "", "0", "", "", ],
 ["|Home","testlink.htm", "deluxe-tree.files/icon1_s.gif", "deluxe-tree.files/icon1_so.gif", "", "Home Page Tip", "", "", "", "data-new.js", ],

"Deluxe Tree: XP Style" item will be expanded by default in that case.

Use   var texpanded=1; parameter to expand all menu items by default.

Use function dtreet_ext_expandItem (itemID, expand) API function to expand the specificmenu items dynamically:

Q: I would like to setup a menu that is Horizontal at level 1,Horizontal at level 2, then vertical from then on. Can your system handle this?  Even if I need to manuallytweak something that would be fine.

I went to your sample page and I would like to add the item widths into mydata.js file, but each item is a different width. Would it be correct for meto do this?...

  var itemStyles = [
["itemWidth=98px"],
];

Or will I have to make all the main menu items/graphics the same width?


A: You don't have to change your dmenu_add.js file.
Please, place this file in the folder where your menu iscreated in.

Yes, you can set itemWidth for each main item.

Please, use Deluxe Tuner to create your individual styles.

You should write, for example, so:

  var itemStyles = [
["itemWidth=98px"], // style 0
["itemWidth=100px"], // style 1
["itemWidth=110px"], // style 2
["itemWidth=120px"], // style 3
["itemWidth=95px"], // style 4
];
  var menuItems = [

["","", "data.files/products.gif", "data.files/products_mo.gif", "Products", "_self","0" , , , ],

["","", "data.files/demoCenter.gif", "data.files/demoCenter_mo.gif", , ,"1", , , ],

["","", "data.files/resources.gif", "data.files/resources_mo.gif", , ,"2", , , ],

["","support.htm", "data.files/support.gif", "data.files/support_mo.gif", , "_self","4", , , ],

["","", "data.files/company.gif", "data.files/company_mo.gif", , , , , , ],];


Q: From your website, I see that you are able to populate a menu through ASP/VB, but I have not been able to figure out how this is done.
How exactly do you use an ASP script to generate the menu items for the dynamic menu?

A: You may generate a menu from a database or XML using any server-side script, e.g., PHP, ASP, VB, etc.
However, these scripts don't work inside of Javascript .js files, so, you should move parameters of a menu from a .js file into an html-page, e.g.:

<!-- Deluxe Menu -->
<noscript><a href="http://deluxe-menu.com">Javascript Menu by Deluxe-Menu.com</a></noscript>
<script type="text/javascript">  var dmWorkPath = "menudir/";</script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="menudir/dmenu.js"></script>
<!-- (c) 2006, http://deluxe-menu.com -->

<script type="text/javascript" language="JavaScript1.2">
// and describe parameters of a menu
  var parameter1=value1;
  var parameter2=value2;
etc.

  var menuItems = [
// here you generate items using server-side scripts (php, asp, vb, etc.)
];
</script>

Unfortunately we don't have examples with ASP and SQL.
The example of the menu working with PHP/MYSQL you can find here:
