Javascript Menu. DHTML Menu.

  • Build right-click menus for your site. For this purpose you should appoint a peculiar method for the object you want. The current X,Y of the mouse pointer or your own ones can be used for the context menu.
  • Design menus absolutely based on CSS (Cascading Style Sheets). It is possible to apply the personal CSS styles for every elements of the menu.
  • When the submenu is bigger than the visible page area, the size of submenu will be automatically decreased. To view all the submenu items you do not need to use scrollbars or something like that - just put your mouse to the bottom of a submenu and it will be automagically scrolled! You can also define width and height for each submenu.

Q: Suppose if I get the single user license, then I see I wont be able to see the javascript code. If I have to handle events like clicking a tab or hover over a tab, how do I do it for the tab menu javascript?

A: Actually there is no need to change our source code to handle these events.
Actually you can use your own Javascript code instead standard links and html code inside item text. For example:

  var bmenuItems = [
["text", "javascript:your_code_here"]
];

or

  var bmenuitems = [
["<div onClick='urlSubstitution(\'transco/sheet.asp?stype=1\')'>Table of Contents</div>", ""]
];

 Could you give more explanation?

A: >  1) is it possible to have multiple(different) images, popup menus?
Yes, you can use any number of popup menus on your page.

>  2) Can it Automatically popup instead of Left click?
>  Would you show me How?
You can use onMouseOver event instead of onClick or onContextMenu events in that case.

> 3) What is: menuInd - index of the javascript menu script on a page, >= 0 ?
Each menu has ID. The ID's number starts with 0.

So, when you have several data files on your page you have such ID's:

<script type="text/javascript" language="JavaScript1.2" src="menu-top.js"></script> // ID - 0 //standard menu (doesn't use popup feature)

<script type="text/javascript" language="JavaScript1.2" src="source_pop.js"></script> // ID - 1

<script type="text/javascript" language="JavaScript1.2" src="source_pop1.js"></script> // ID - 2

<script type="text/javascript" language="JavaScript1.2" src="source_pop2.js"></script> // ID - 3

<script type="text/javascript" language="JavaScript1.2" src="source_pop3.js"></script> // ID - 4

and so on.

If you want to have different Popup menus (there color, item, text,font and so on) you should create different .js files with yourparameters. And call them from your page, for example:

<script type="text/javascript" language="JavaScript1.2" src="menu-top.js"></script>

<SCRIPT language=JavaScript1.2 src="source_pop.js" type=text/javascript></SCRIPT>
<SCRIPT language=JavaScript1.2 src="source_pop1.js" type=text/javascript></SCRIPT>
<SCRIPT language=JavaScript1.2 src="source_pop2.js" type=text/javascript></SCRIPT>
<SCRIPT language=JavaScript1.2 src="source_pop3.js" type=text/javascript></SCRIPT>

If you have different item text only you can use one
<SCRIPT language=JavaScript1.2 src="source_pop.js" type=text/javascript></SCRIPT>
file. But you should delete the following code:

  var menuItems = [

["Next","testlink.htm"],
["Prev","testlink.htm"],
["Close","testlink.htm"],
];

dm_init();

and move it to the html page:

<body>
...
<SCRIPT language=JavaScript1.2 src="source_pop.js" type=text/javascript></SCRIPT>
<script type="text/javascript"> //first popup menu ID - 1
  var menuItems = [

["Next","testlink.htm"],
["Prev","testlink.htm"],
["Close","testlink.htm"],
];

dm_init();
</SCRIPT>
<script type="text/javascript"> //second popup menu ID - 2
  var menuItems = [

["Text","testlink.htm"],
["Text1","testlink.htm"],
["Text2","testlink.htm"],
];

dm_init();
</SCRIPT>
<script type="text/javascript"> //third popup menu ID - 3
  var menuItems = [

["New_Text","testlink.htm"],
["New_Text1","testlink.htm"],
["New_Text2","testlink.htm"],
];

dm_init();
</SCRIPT>

<script type="text/javascript"> //fourth popup menu ID - 4
  var menuItems = [

["New","testlink.htm"],
["New","testlink.htm"],
["New","testlink.htm"],
];

dm_init();
</SCRIPT>

<img src="testimage.gif" width=200 onClick="return dm_popup(1, 1000, event);" style="cursor: hand;">
<img src="testimage.gif" width=200 onClick="return dm_popup(2, 1000, event);" style="cursor: hand;">
<img src="testimage.gif" width=200 onClick="return dm_popup(3, 1000, event);" style="cursor: hand;">
<img src="testimage.gif" width=200 onClick="return dm_popup(4, 1000, event);" style="cursor: hand;">

</body>


Q: Will all your dhtml menu samples work cross-frame?


A: See how should you create cross frame menu:

1. To initialize the cross frame menu call dm_initFrame()
function instead of standard dm_init() function within data.js file:

dm_initFrame(framesetID, mainFrameInd, subFrameInd, orientation);

framesetID - id attribute of the frameset;
mainFrameInd - index of the main frame (where the top-menu is placed), >=0;
subFrameInd - index of the subframe (where the submenus will be shown), >=0;
orientation - frame orientaion: 0 - top-to-bottom, 1 - left-to-right; 2 - bottom-to-top; 3 - right-to-left.

So you should create your menu in Deluxe Tuner, save it.
Create html file with your frame set.

Set ID for the first frameset:
<FRAMESET id=frmSet rows=220,*>
<FRAME id=frame1 src="Deluxe Menu Samples_files/cross-frame-horizontal-1.htm"> //menu frame
<FRAME id=frame2 name=frame2 src="Deluxe Menu Samples_files/testlink.htm"> //content frame
</FRAMESET>

Then you should open your data file in any text editor and change
dm_init(); for example to dm_initFrame("frmSet", 0, 1, 0);

Q: I'm interested in using Deluxe menu for our website. It appearseverything is exactly what I want, but I do have one question.
Can I pass a selection from cascading navigation bar to a form?

A: Deluxe Menus doesn't have such a feature now.

But you are able to paste any html code within items.

For example:
  var menuItems = [
...
["<nobr><FORM method=GET action='http://www.google.com/custom'>
<input name='as_q' value='searchthe web' size=15 style='font-size:10'> 
<INPUT type=hidden name=cof value='LW:144;L:http://domain.edu/images/sulogo.gif;
LH:45;AH:center;GL:0;S:http://domain.edu;AWFID:e01cb67b8afe383e;'></form></nobr>","",
"images/icons/search.gif", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", "",],

You should write your own code within menuItem.
