Javascript Menu. DHTML Menu.

  • Submenus drop down over all the objects of the page (select, flash, object, embed, applet). If for some reasons a submenu can't drop down over an object, the latter will be hidden for a time when the submenu is shown.
  • These effects will make your menu more attractive and stylish. You can cast a shadow on the menu and submenus, set transparency. Among available transitional effects there are such as fade, mosaic, random dissolve, slide out and many others.
  • Create individual styles and assign them to any submenu and item. Use individual styles to achieve stunning effects!

Q: I am intersted in a horizontal drop down menu.

I need the rollover and selected color of each section in the onmouseover drop down menu to be a different color.

Here is my scenario

link1 link2 link3
All links are white.
On rollover, link1 turns red, and the drop down below is red (if possible can each individual link in the the dropdown rollover to a diffrent color, say pink?)
When you click a link in the link1 dropdown, and go to that page, link1 will now be red (highlighted) while on that page, and link2 and link3 are still white.

Now, On rollover, link2 turns blue, and the drop down below is blue(if possible can each individual link in the the dropdown rollover to a diffrent color, say light blue?)
When you click a link in the link2 dropdown, and go to that page, link2 will now be blue, and link2 and link3 are still white. I also need the flyout menus to be able to be different widths. Say the drop down menu under link1 has short links, then it only needs to be 100 pixels wide. If the sublinks under link 2 are longer, its dropdown menu might need to be 200 pixels wide. In other words, the flyout width needs to be flexible to fit the length of the text in the link.
I have tried other programs, but have found none that can do this. The problem seems to be they cant have different width flyout menus (often this is the case if they are css based).
OR
It is not possible to show a 'up' or highlighted color on a main link when you are on a page that is a sublink)

Does this make sense, and is it possible with your builder?

A: Yes, you can create such a menu using Deluxe Menu.

To use different font colors for the main items you should useIndividual Item styles. And to cerate different color and differentwidth of the submenus you should use Individual Item/Submenu styles.

See the attached example.zip. See how you should use styles.

> I also need the flyout menus to be able to be different widths.
Actually the submenu width is depend on the item's size. You can alsowrap item's text. Set   var noWrap=0; or use standard <br> tagsinside items' text:

 ["|very long text <br> in Item 14","", "", "", "", "", "3", "1", "", "", "", ],

You can set exact width for each submenu using IndividualSubmenu Styles.

> When you click a link in the link1 dropdown, and go to that
> page, link1 will now be red (highlighted) while on that page, and
> link2 and link3 are still white.

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">onmouseover drop down 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 am investigating why a few things have not been working for sometime on our site.

This is the error I get in the console "The requested URL /js/menudir/dtree_ss.js was not found on this server."

I update the files awhile back and removed the dtress_ss.js as I was instructed, why is it that it that the script is still trying to reference this file?

What do I have to do to remove this error from java script tree menu?

When I updated the files a few months back the new files seem to fix a problem we were having with Chrome, but broke the drop down menu in Explorer. I have yet to resolve this. The drop down menu appears to work fine in all other browsers.

The nav menu not working in IE7 (not sure about IE6 or IE8) is a bigger issue than the error in the console, but thought maybe they were related. From our analytics, the strong majority of our customers are using IE7.

A: 1) dtree_ss.js
The current version of Deluxe Tree doesn't have dtree_ss.js at all. You should deletethe following code from your page:
<script language="JavaScript1.2" src="/js/menudir/dtree_ss.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

In the body tag you should write:
<td >
<script src="/js/menudir/data-tree.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
</td>

In the HEAD tag you should write:

<!-- Deluxe Tree -->
<noscript><a href="http://deluxe-tree.com">java script tree menu by Deluxe-Tree.com</a></noscript>
<script type="text/javascript">  var tWorkPath="/js/menudir/";</script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="/js/menudir/dtree.js"></script>
<!-- (c) 2009, http://deluxe-tree.com -->

2) Error in IE7.
You're using new engine files and old data files for the menus now.
I'm sending you the example.
Use engine files for Deluxe Menu and Deluxe Tree and data files (data.js and data-tree.js)from it.


Q: I built the menu and tried it in my site and I see nothing but text. No Block arrangement as in the preview within the builder.


A: Please, send us a copy of your html page (including .js files) ora direct link to your website, so we can check it.

Probably that you have overlooked to add dmenu.js file or images onyour server.
