Recent QuestionsQ: I need to be able to highlight the selected menu item of the sliding drop down menu.
A: Deluxe Menu has only two states normal and mouseover.
Try to do the following things:
- delete var pressedItem=1; parameter from your data file
- set correct parameter on each page before you call data file, forexample:
function dm_ext_setPressedItem (menuInd, submenuInd, itemInd, recursion)
Sets a current pressed item.
menuInd - index of a menu on a page, >= 0.
submenuInd - index of a submenu, >= 0.
itemInd - index of an item, >=0.
recursion = true/false - highlight parent items.
But notice, to use dm_ext_setPressedItem() you should know ID of selected item and subitem.
You can't get this ID after you reload your page. That is why you should write your own code on PHP.
Q: I'm trying out the cross-browser (top to bottom) drop down menu and I was wondering if it was possible to have the top bar (the main items) use a background image while the sub-items beneath used a plain background color and no image?
So far I've gotten them to either both use a background image, or both use a background color. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. :)
A: Actually you can create any menu you like with Deluxe Menu.
You can use Individual Styles to set background image for the items
var itemStyles = [
oryou can use images instead of icons (you should delete item's text).
["","", "deluxe-menu.files/btn_black.gif", "deluxe-menu.files/btn_black_green.gif", "", "", "", "", "", ],
I have a menu with one "root" item. I see the use of the "+" symbol within the item name. I do not see any documentation regarding this symbol, only "|". Can you explain?
If I have one menu with this one "root" node, how would I add an subitem to this root node?
Here is my code so far, but the inserted items appear to be at the same level as the root node.
var rootItem = dtreet_ext_getItemIDByIndex ( 0,0 );
var menuItem = new Array(10);
for ( var i = 0; i < producers.length; i++ )
var producer = producers[ i ];
menuItem = producer.name;
dtreet_ext_insertItem ( 0, 0, i + 1, menuItem );
A: See dtreet_ext_insertItem () function has the following parameters:
function dtreet_ext_insertItem (menuInd, parentItemID, itemInd, itemParams)
Creates a new item and inserts it into a specified position.
parentItemID - ID property of an item.<, >= 0.
itemParams - item parameters.
Notice that parentItemID is the Id property of the parent item (notindex). If you want to add top items you should set parentItemID=0.
itemInd - you should use this parameter if you want to add item in thespecific place, for example set itemInd=5 if you want to add itembefore the existing item with itemInd=5.
If you set itemInd=null the new item will be added at the end of this submenu and its index will be added automatically.
