---------------------------------------------------------------
You can download the licensed engine .js files from the same link in your license message.
Deluxe Menu v2.00 has new parameters and features.
To upgrade to v2.00 you should do the following.

Step 1.
    1.1 For Windows users
      a. Run Deluxe Tuner v2.0
      (can be found in the trial menu package v2.0
      http://deluxe-menu.com/deluxe-menu.zip).

      - dmenu_dyn.js
      - dmenu_key.js

Replace all old .js files by the files from v2.00.

Try that.


Q: I would like to add a javascript link but cannot seem to get it handle the event as a tag or onclick event. I just want to grab the current page, insert it into a string, and go off to the page it specifies. Can this be done?


A: You're able to use Javascript for each item, for example:

  var menuitems = [
["item text", "javascript:your_code_here"]
];

Unfortunately, you can't assign onmouseover/onClick event to each item.
However, you can achieve this by using standard html objects within items, for example:

  var menuitems = [
["<div onClick='your_code_here'>item text</div>", "index.html"]
];


Q: I have managed to insert a separator in a menu and set the image path but the separator image does not show.

Is there anything else I need to do?


A: Please, see the following parameters:

//------- Separators -------
//--- Separators
  var separatorImage="";
  var separatorWidth="5";
  var separatorHeight="100%";
  var separatorAlignment="right";
  var separatorVImage="images/public/separator.gif";
  var separatorVWidth="3";
  var separatorVHeight="100%";
  var separatorPadding="";

You should set a separator in the menuItems, for example:

  var menuItems = [
["Home","index.cfm", , , , , , , , ],
["-"],
["About Us","about.cfm", , , , , , , , ],

];
Try that.


Q: When using website tab menu, where do I place the text content related to the selected tab,
(the text presented on the rest of the screen under the tab)?
And who do I connect a specfic text to a certain tab?


A: See, for each item you should assign the ID property of the contentDIV (see data file with your menu parameters).
You should set  var tabMode=0;

["Style Name","contentName", "", "", "", "", "1", "", "", ],
["-","", "", "", "", "", "0", "", "", ],
["Style Description","contentDescription", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", ],
["-","", "", "", "", "", "0", "", "", ],
["Style Variations","contentVariations", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", ],
["-","", "", "", "", "", "0", "", "", ],
["Empty","", "", "", "", "", "2", "", "", ],


And on your html page you should create DIV's with such ID.
You canset background image for these DIV's in styles.

<div id="contentName" style="height: 0%; visibility: hidden; background-image:
url('img/back.jpg'); background-repeat:repeat-y;" class="tabPage">
<p align=center><img src="img/style01_title.gif" width=140 height=90 alt="Glass Style Tabs"></p>
You should paste your content here!!!!!
</div>

<div id="contentDescription" style="height: 0%; visibility: hidden;" class="tabPage">
<p align=center><img src="img/style01_title.gif" width=140 height=90 alt="Glass Style Tabs"></p>
You should paste your description here!!!!!
