Javascript Menu. DHTML Menu.

  • Submenus can be shown in 4 ways: - From from left to right + upwards and also left to right. - From right to left and also from right to left + upwards (e.g. for right-to-left languages).
  • Use images for icons, backgrounds of submenus and items. Using images you can create menus entirely based on graphics.
  • Create both horizontal and vertical menus and submenus with any amount of menus on one page.
  • Insert any HTML code inside the menu item - be it a form or a picture, a flash-object or a text. This ability allows you to create various menus of any complexity.

Q: I can't get the hand pointer to work with my dhtml menu scripts in firefox and IE. I know that firefox requires the itemCursor to be set to pointer, but it doesn't work for all links in my menus. I believe that this worked in past version of deluxe-menu, but stopped working somewhere along the way. To recreate this, create a horizontal menu, and set the pressedItem to be one of the menu items and set the itemCursor to be "pointer". Then, you'll see that the pressed item's pointer is the finger icon, but the other menu items are just the arrow. Is there something I'm doing wrong or a setting that will fix this?

A: No, the reason is not in the pressed item.

See when you set:
  var itemCursor="pointer";

your cursor will be a hand for the items with url only. For the itemswithout url it will be default arrow.



Q: It seems that if I try and use the syntax  ["| with some HTML such as <DIV class = 'myclass'> inside dropdown menu it IGNORES the HTML and just treats it like another link.
But if I don't start the line with  ["| ..... Then I get a syntax error.

For example:

I am trying to place 4 links in a square shape in the top left of my screen. To do this I was going to create DIV's and set the TOP and LEFT to different values from within a loop (I left out the code that does the updating for myleft and mytop...)

  var menuItems = [

<loop>

 ["|<div style='position: absolute; left: <cfoutput>#myleft#</cfoutput>px; top: <cfoutput>#mytop#</cfoutput>px>'","", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", "",],

 ["|#ParentMenuDesc#","index.cfm?Workflow=#Workflow#&role=#Privilege_id#&cacheid=#createuuid()#&Process_Type=#Process_Type#&PageMode=#Process_Logic#", "#menu_option_icon#", "", "", "_top", "", "", "", "", "",],

 ["|</div>","", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", "",],

<end loop>

];

What am I doing wrong here?.... Can you show me how to accomplish this task?

A: No, this syntax is incorrect. It won't work.

  var menuItems = [

<loop>

 ["|<div style='position: absolute; left: <cfoutput>#myleft#</cfoutput>px; top: <cfoutput>#mytop#</cfoutput>px>'","", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", "",],

 ["|#ParentMenuDesc#","index.cfm?Workflow=#Workflow#&role=#Privilege_id#&cacheid=#createuuid()#&Process_Type=#Process_Type#&PageMode=#Process_Logic#", "#menu_option_icon#", "","", "_top", "", "", "", "", "",],

 ["|</div>","", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", "",],<end loop>

];

You should have <div> ... </div> tags in each dropdown menu item!
It is not correctly to write <div> ... </div> tags for wholesubmenu.

  var menuItems = [
 ["|<div style='position: absolute; left:<cfoutput>#myleft#</cfoutput>px; top: <cfoutput>#mytop#</cfoutput>px>text</div>'","", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", "",],

 ["|#ParentMenuDesc#","index.cfm?Workflow=#Workflow#&role=#Privilege_id#&cacheid=#createuuid()#&Process_Type=#Process_Type#&PageMode=#Process_Logic#", "#menu_option_icon#", "","", "_top", "", "", "", "", "",],

 ["| ","", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", "",],
];



Q: I tried to add a fixed width on some of the items that I thought had too much empty space on the right of the text but would not work. Is it possible to have a fixed amount of pixels after the text for all navigation items of the css drop-down menu?

A: You can set padding parameter in the following way:

  var itemPadding="3px 15px 3px 3px";
                            top right bottom left



Q: I'm having a difficult time figuring out how to get content into each "tab" for the dhtml tab menus.
I see that content can be put into div-tag or frame, but how is it referenced in tab so whensomeone clicks the tab,
it shows that content?
Is it the link variable in the MenuTuner? Can the content be a separate html page?

A: See in Deluxe Tabs there are two modes:

1.   var tabMode=0;
You can create only one level of tabs and assign Object Id's of the
DIV's to show when you click on the tab.

["XP Tab 1","content1", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", ],
["XP Tab 2","content2", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", ],
["XP Tab 3","content3", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", ],
["XP Tab 4","content4", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", ],

2.   var tabMode=1;
You can assign only links in this mode.
You should create top level items with subitems.

["XP Tab 1","", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", ],
 ["|Link 1_1","http://deluxe-tabs.com", "", "", "", "", "0", "", "", ],
 ["|Link 1_2","testlink.htm", "", "", "", "", "0", "", "", ],
 ["|Link 1_3","testlink.htm", "", "", "", "", "0", "", "", ],
 ["|Link 1_4","testlink.htm", "", "", "", "", "0", "", "", ],
 ["|Link 1_5","testlink.htm", "", "", "", "", "0", "", "", ],
["XP Tab 2","", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", ],
 ["|Link 2_1","testlink.htm", "", "", "", "", "0", "", "", ],
 ["|Link 2_2","testlink.htm", "", "", "", "", "0", "", "", ],
 ["|Link 2_3","testlink.htm", "", "", "", "", "0", "", "", ],
 ["|Link 2_4","testlink.htm", "", "", "", "", "0", "", "", ],
 ["|Link 2_5","testlink.htm", "", "", "", "", "0", "", "", ],
["XP Tab 3","", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", ],
 ["|Link 3_1","testlink.htm", "", "", "", "", "0", "", "", ],
 ["|Link 3_2","testlink.htm", "", "", "", "", "0", "", "", ],
 ["|Link 3_3","testlink.htm", "", "", "", "", "0", "", "", ],
 ["|Link 3_4","testlink.htm", "", "", "", "", "0", "", "", ],
 ["|Link 3_5","testlink.htm", "", "", "", "", "0", "", "", ],

You can use Object ID as well as Link in both modes. Use the following prefixes within item's link field:
"object:" - means that there is object id after it;
"link:" - means that there is a link after it.
"javascript:" - means that there is a javascript code after it, for example:javascript:alert(\'Hello!\')

So, you should write for example:

 ["|Link 1_1","object:Content1_1", "", "", "", "", "0", "", "", ],
