Javascript Menu. DHTML Menu.

  • Use a mouse to move a menu as a usual window. Also you can create the menu where each submenu can be "separated" from the menu (MS Office toolbar-like mode).
  • When the page is scrolled the menu remains visible. The menu can "float" along one or two coordinate axes.
  • There can be multilevel menus - create as many rows of the menu as necessary. Any submenu in its turn can include different number of columns.

Recent Questions

Q: My site requires me to regularly update the menu by inserting a new menu item at the top of the list. Creating a sub-item automatically places it at the bottom and I haven't yet found a way to move java animated menu items to the top apart from manually editing the data.js file.

A: You should use new engine files v3.2.5 and add items using thefollowing function:

function dm_ext_addItemPos (menuInd, submenuInd, iParams, Pos)

Adds the new item to a submenu.
menuInd - index of a menu on a page, >= 0.
submenuInd - index of a submenu, >= 0. See more info about indexes here.
iParams = [array] - the array of item parameters. This parameter has the same structure as an item in menuItems array. You can assign parameters of another existent item of the menu (for example, when you want to create a duplicate of the existent item) or create new ones.

Structure of iParams:
[item_text, link, icon_normal, icon_over, tip, target, individual_style_index, jsFilename]
Pos - the position in the menu where you want to add new item.

Q: Is there any way to get around the ActiveX control warning every time I load the website from the CD? I think Internet Explorer doesnt like the menu system.

A: You should adjust your browser settings.

Tools/Internet Options/Advanced Options/

and set
"Allow active content from CDs to run on My Computer".

There is no way to enable these preferences automatically, in othercase there are no reasons to create security preferences.



Q: We have purchased 'Deluxe Menu...'.
We are integrating the menu into the site. However, we are facing an issue i.e. drop down menu with css overlapping the 'Select' box in the IE 6.0.

I went through the help pages in the deluxe menu website and tried out the Suggestion of assigning 1 to dmObjectsCheck i.e.   var dmObjectsCheck=1 and adding the function as below.

function dm_ext_ruleObjectHide()
{
return !document.all;
}

It is throwing some error when we do that. Could you please suggest, what should we to get rid of overlapping. Please see the attached screen for the error. The error captured using Firefox.

A: Check that you're using Deluxe Menu v3.2.5.
Check also that you have dmenu_add.js file in the same folder withdmenu.js file.

Or you can try to set also the following parameter:

  var useIFRAME=1;



Q: We are testing you menu in our application. It is being used in cross frame mode. It works very nicely except a couple issues.

The main one is after loading a new page in the sub menus window when I go back to the main menu to select another option but on the initial mouse over it takes several seconds for the menu to come up. Once the delay of loading the initial submenu is over it loads all others very quickly until a new page is loaded again. Is there a way to optimize the menu to reduce this load time? I have already set dm_writeAll=0 but that only increased the speed of the initial display of the main menu.

And the other question is does the dmObjectsCheck option work in cross frame mode? I have it set =1 and the submenus still underneath objects (such as select list) which have a higher z order.


A: Try to do the following:
move all <script> calls into <head>, but delete dm_initFrame()function from data .js file -- move them instead of files calls, i.e.:

<head>
<script src=data.js>
...

</head>

...

<div><script>dm_initFrame("frmSet", 1, 2, 1); </script></div>

It this case data will be loaded when <head> will load, but after thatmenus must be shown quickly.
Let me know about results.

Deluxe Menu overlap select objects in cross-frame mode.
