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.

Recent Questions

Q: Hi there, hope someone could help me out.

We have recently purchased your menu product, and I would like to know how I indicate on a javascript slide menu, the root node that was selected. So in other words, if I have a horizontal navigation and I select the 3rd index along the menu and select something from this, how can I make the 3rd index highlighted?

I am not sure how else to phrase this question and hope this makes sense. You help will be appreciated.

A: You can find more info here:
http://www.deluxe-menu.com/highlighted-items-sample.html

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:

<noscript><a href="http://deluxe-menu.com">Javascript Slide Menu by Deluxe-Menu.com</a></noscript>
<script type="text/javascript">  var dmWorkPath = "menudir/";</script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="menudir/dmenu.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">  var pressedItem=3;</script>
...
<script type="text/javascript" src="menudir/data.js"></script>

You can also set a pressed item using Javascript API:

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 recently purchased DeluxeMenu for a project I'm working on and a new requirement has been submitted.
I am looking for a way to dynamically affectthe contents of menu javascripts
after it's been rendered(displayed) in the browser.
Can this be accomplished with this component?

A: 1) You can use API functions to affect items dynamically:

http://deluxe-menu.com/functions-info.html

2) Generate your menu items dynamically from database.
Unfortunately we don't have working example with ASP.

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) 2008, 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:

Q: A lot of things have come in between... Just a few more Q's before I order.

1)
At the bottom of the page you refer to below, there is a table showing the tmenuItems array, itemInd and " submenuInd ". But in the examples on the same page, the function "dtreet_ext_getItemIDByIndex" takes the arguments (menuInd, itemInd). Is the argument "menuInd" the same as "submenuInd" referred to in the javascript menu design??

2)
When I highlight an item on "onload" I need to expand that item's parent(s), right? What will happen to other, already expanded nodes when I do that? Will they still be expanded or collapsed?

A: 1) menuInd is the index of a tree menu on a page, >= 0.
First menu - menuInd=0
Second menu - menuInd=1
Third menu - menuInd=2
Fourth menu - menuInd=3
...

2) Yes, the already expanded nodes will be expanded.


Q: Go to the "products", then to "Furnaces" or "Humidifiers". Seethe sub menu js items ending with "0"? See how they seem to be cut off on the very far right edge?

A: This is a feature of Firefox 3.0.3.

You'll have such effect if you'll use Trebuchet MS font andtransparency for submenus.

Try to use another font, or set
  var transparency="100";
