Q: I just don't understand the 'concept" of how It should be put into my html page.
I plan on having more than one menu on my page. and this would be an example of one of the drp down menus I want on it. I'm fairly new to making a webpage, but this menu is what I would like on my page.
sorry for being a little slow at this, I DO LOVE how it lays out and cant wait to get it to work on my webpage.


A: 1. Create your menu in Deluxe Tuner application.
You can create any menu as you like in Deluxe Tuner.

Deluxe Tuner v2.4 supports Deluxe Menu (http://deluxe-menu.com) &Deluxe Tree (http://deluxe-tree.com) & Deluxe Tabs (http://deluxe-tabs.com)

You can use ready to use templates. You can find them in the templateswindow.

When you open Deluxe Tuner ( Deluxe Menu ) you can click "File/New"and add items and subitems using buttons "Add Item" and "Add Subitem" onthe main window.
You should set items and subitems parameters on the "Item Parameters"window.
See also other parameters for the menu on the main window.

More info about menu parameters you can find on our site (you can alsouse local version of the site which you can find in the trial package"Deluxe Menu / deluxe-menu.com /")
http://deluxe-menu.com/parameters-info.html
http://deluxe-menu.com/menu-items-info.html

You can also use Individual Styles for items and subitems
http://deluxe-menu.com/individual-item-styles-info.html
http://deluxe-menu.com/individual-submenu-styles-info.html

2. You should install the menu on your page.
You can click, for example, File/Export to HTML (you can't do it inthe MAC version).

Add several rows into your html page.

<head>
...
<!-- Deluxe Menu -->
<noscript><a href="http://deluxe-menu.com">Javascript Menu by Deluxe-Menu.com</a></noscript>
<script type="text/javascript">  var dmWorkPath="deluxe-menu.files/";</script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="deluxe-menu.files/dmenu.js"></script>

...
</head>

<body>
...
<table>
<tr><td><script type="text/javascript" src="deluxe-menu.files/data.js"></script></td></tr> //data.js - data file created in Deluxe Tuner.
</table>
...
</body>

You should also copy all engine files
dmenu.js
dmenu4.js
dmenu_add.js
dmenu_dyn.js
dmenu_key.js
dmenu_cf.js
dmenu_popup.js
dmenu_ajax.js
into "deluxe-menu.files/" folder. You should place this folder in thesame folder with your index. html page.

If you want to install several menus on the one page you should writethe following code once

<!-- Deluxe Menu -->
<noscript><a href="http://deluxe-menu.com">Javascript Menu by Deluxe-Menu.com</a></noscript>
<script type="text/javascript">  var dmWorkPath="deluxe-menu.files/";</script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="deluxe-menu.files/dmenu.js"></script>
And then call your data files several times.
<script type="text/javascript" src="deluxe-menu.files/data.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="deluxe-menu.files/data1.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="deluxe-menu.files/data2.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="deluxe-menu.files/data3.js"></script>

Try that.


Q: The AJAX sample for tree menu script on website does not have any styling applied at the moment.
I am assuming that it would support full styling with AJAX as well.
Is this correct?

A: You can use any style and templates for the AJAX sample.
Create a menu and set style you need using Individual Item Styles.
To enable AJAX Tree Menu use the following menu parameters:

  var tajax=1;

Then set your menu in such way:

  var tmenuItems = [

["Deluxe Tree: XP Style","", "", "", "", "XP Title Tip", "", "0", "", "data-samples/data-ajax5.js", ],
["+Samples Gallery","", "", "", "", "XP Title Tip", "", "0", "0", "", ],
 ["|Samples Block 1","", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", "data-samples/data-ajax.js", ],
 ["|Samples Block 2","", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", "data-samples/data-ajax.js", ],
 ["|Samples Block 3","", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", "data-samples/data-ajax.js", ],
];

Each .js file must contain menuItems variable for the submenu in the following format:

  var tmenuItems = [

[text, link, icon1, icon2, icon2, tip, target, itemStyle, submenuStyle, jsFileName],
];

Where jsFileName - .js filename on the server that contains tmenuItems variable for the submenu.
For example:

  var tmenuItems = [

["Home","testlink.htm", "", "", "", "Home Page Tip", "", "", "", "", ],
["Product Info","", "", "", "", "Product Info Tip", "", "", "", "data-samples/data-ajax2.js", ],
["Samples","", "", "", "", "Samples Tip", "", "", "", "data-samples/data-ajax4.js", ],
["Purchase","testlink.htm", "", "", "", "Purchase Tip", "", "", "", "", ],
["Support","", "", "", "", "Support Tip", "", "", "", "", ],
 ["|Write Us","mailto:[email protected]", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", ],
];



Q: I was wondering if there is a way to disable links on a page for the script menu.I am creating a site where, in a certain mode, the page is in preview and Idon't want the links to work.

A: To disable your menu items you should set the following parameter to disable all items:

  var itemTarget="_";

Or you can disable items individually.

["Home","testlink.html", "", "", "", "_", "", "", "", "", "", ], //disabled
["Product Info","", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", ],
 ["|Features","testlink.html", "", "", "", "_", "", "", "", "", "", ], //disabled
 ["|Installation","", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", ],

You can also use function dm_ext_changeItem (menuInd, submenuInd, itemInd, iParams)
function to disable items on-the-fly, for example:

dm_ext_changeItem (0, 2, 3, ["", "", "", "", "", "_", "", "", ""]);


Q: Actually, we figured out how to adjust the alignment of the text. What we would like to do is set a specific width for each item on the top level of the menu. Right now the width of the menu is based on the length of the item in that hotspot. We would like the width of each of those options to be the same.


A: You should use individual item styles. For example:

  var itemStyles = [
["itemWidth=123px"], //style 0
["itemWidth=150px"], //style 1
];

  var menuItems = [

["Home","testlink.html", , , , , "0", , , ], //style 0
["Product Info","", "deluxe-menu.files/icon1.gif", "deluxe-menu.files/icon1o.gif", , , "0", , , ], //style 0
["Text","", "deluxe-menu.files/icon1.gif", "deluxe-menu.files/icon1o.gif", , , "1", , , ], //style 1

Try that.
