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: One question. I'm working on my site and I'm wondering why the background images disappear for a while after hovering over them, then reappear after a while.
Can you tell me how to stop this from happening?


A: ow you have such parameter:

  var itemBackColor=["#FFFFFF","#4792E6"];

The second color is the mouseover background color.


Q: When I maximize the screen the popup windows appear to open below taskbar.
Is there a setting to correct this so that windows always appear above the cascading navigation bar?

A: You should set the following parameter to show submenus above the top items:

  var subMenuVAlign="bottom";

But notice that if there will be no enough space above the menu your submenus will be
shown under the menu.



Q: I have implemented a deluxe-menu on my client's website and I had a couple of questions.

1. Can I control how fast the submenus scroll in my javascript menu examples? If you look at the site and hover over Need An Expert? on the menu and then point to Practice Areas, this submenu seems to scroll slower than if you mouse over "Technology" and scroll that submenu. The Technology submenu scrolls a lot faster. Is it because there are many more items in the Technology submenu? I tried to find a setting for "scroll speed" or the like, but I couldn't find it.

2. In internet explorer, when you mouse over Need An Expert?, Technology the first time you go to the page, there is a 3-4 second delay before the submenu opens. There are a lot of submenu items under Technology, but in Firefox, there doesn't seem to be this delay. Do you know why this would happen in IE? Is there a way to fix it? Could the problem be that each submenu item has a background graphic and this is causing the delay?

3. When you get to a page on the site and you rollover the top level menu, there is also a delay before the background image of the menu items shows up. You get a solid blue background color for a second or two (the bgcolor assigned) and then the graphic loads and shows up. Is there any way around this? I have a javascript to preload the image (back.jpg) but that doesn't seem to help.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!

A: 1. The scroll speed depends on number of items to be scrolled, more items -> faster scroll.
You can decrease the number of items or enlarge the size of submenu.

2,3. Please try to add the following param:

  var dm_writeAll = 1;

It will load all backgrounds on page load, no on mouseover.



Q: In IE7 I see the deluxe-menu.com link on the top and no horizontal menu items on my page.

In Firefox it will work fine.

Can you help me to get the Solution?

A: Your browser has JavaScript option disabled.
It means that no one JavaScript element can be run.
You should to enable JavaScript in IE:
Tools -> Internet Options -> Security -> Custom level... -> Scripting -> Active Scripting = Enable

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

You can use search engine friendly code, so you'll see all yourlinks (for the main items and submenus) when your security settings in IE doesn't allow Javascript.

You can generate search engine friendly code.
Deluxe Menu is a search engine friendly menu since v1.12.
To create a search engine friendly menu you should add additional html code within your html page:

<div id="dmlinks">
<a href="http://deluxe-menu.com">menu_item_text1</a>
<a href="http://deluxe-tree.com">menu_item_text2</a>
...etc.
</div>

To generate such a code use Deluxe Tuner application.
You can find this GUI in the trial package.
Run Tuner, load your horizontal menu and click Tools/Generate SE-friendly Code (F3).
