Javascript Menu. DHTML Menu.

  • Tune menu parameters manually or using Deluxe Tuner. Then add several rows of a code within html page - your menu is ready!
  • Use special JavaScript functions for: Dynamic changing of items (text, link, icons and even individual style!). Making a menu item active/inactive. Addition/removing of items. Changing of visibility of items. Getting the information on any menu, submenu and items. Other tricks.
  • Opportunity to control the menu from the keyboard.
  • Cross-frame mode allows you to build full-featured menus on the pages that use frame-based structure. But for all that it's not necessary to insert any additional code into all the pages - just specify some additional parameters of the menu.

Q: I'm trying out your menus, and I seem to have a problem with changing the title of a menu item. If the text is something like "Create a New Event" the entire menu spreads out and the rollover image starts replicating itself behind it, instead fo stretching with the text. So I see 1 /2 rollover images for that top level item, instead of just the one, width it's width spread out to accomodate the extra text.

I've tried the Styles bit, but that doesn't seem to fix the rollover image any...

Any pointers ?


A: You can try to set the exact width for each menu item using IndividualItem Styles.

You should use Individual Item Styles.
For example:
  var itemStyles = [
["itemWidth=120","itemBorderWidth=1","itemBorderStyle=solid,solid"], //style0
["itemWidth=100","itemBorderWidth=1","itemBorderStyle=solid,solid"], //style1
["itemWidth=130","itemBorderWidth=1","itemBorderStyle=solid,solid"], //style2
["itemWidth=150","itemBorderWidth=1","itemBorderStyle=solid,solid"], //style3
];

["Home","testlink.htm"],
["Samples","testlink.htm"],
 ["|Group 1","", , , , , "0", , , ],
 ["|Group 2","", , , , , "1", , , ],
 ["|Group 3","", , , , , "2", , , ],

...
[" More Samples","testlink.htm"],
 ["|Group 1","", , , , , "3", , , ],
 ["|Group 2","", , , , , "1", , , ],

Where "0", "1", "2", "3" - style number in itemStyles.

You also should check the width of your rollover image. It should bethe same width as your items.

You can also use
tags in the item text, for example:

  var menuItems = [
["line 1
line 2"],
];

Or you can set this parameter:

  var noWrap=0;

Try that.


Q: My question is regarding the single user license. I am currently writing a website for use on my companies intranet. The machine I am writing it on will unlikely be the machine that it eventually lives on, which could also quite possibly change as well. Looking at the instructions for the license, it seems I require a domain name for the key. The problem is that the current machine I am using is not in DNS, & even if it were, the machine that it will eventually live on will not resolve to the same name (if it even will have a DNS entry in our internal DNS server). So, does the license look for the name that is specified from the client browser, or does it look internally on the web server itself? I am wondering if I set the web servers hosts file or httpd.conf to reference the name given in the license key taht will allow me to transfer the menu to another server?


A: You can register the menu for a domain name or for IP address.
In other words, you should register the menu for the domain name thatyou print in a browser's search string, for example:

http://intranet/
http://intranet/folder
http://192.168.0.1


Q: How do I remove scrollbars from the iframe within the mouseover popups?

A: Try to set exact width and height for the IFRAME.

Q: Do you have any working examples of a menu generated using .php from a MySQL database?

Our website is dynamic from a MySQL db and we already have categories and sub-categories. It would be useful if we could use this with our deluxe menu.

I don't know how to set this up, so any assistance would be appreciated.


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>

The example of the menu working with PHP/MYSQL you can find here:
