Javascript Menu. DHTML Menu.

  • Setup menu parameters manually or using De Luxe Tuner. Then add some rows of a code within html page code and your menu is ready!
  • Use special Java Script methods for: Dynamic changing of items (link, text, icons, arrows and even individual style!). Addition/removing of items or submenus. Disabling and enabling menu items. Getting the info on every submenu, menu, and items. Changing appearance of items. Other coding tricks.
  • Cross-frame mode lets you to construct full-featured dhtml menus on the pages with frames. But for all that frame set it's not necessary to insert any additional code into all the pages - just specify several extra menu parameters.
  • Ability to handle the menu from the keyboard via keystrokes.

Q: Thanks, we tried giving   var pressedItem=0; and the script as below:

<script type="text/javascript">
onload=setPressed;
function setPressed()
{
dm_ext_setPressedItem (0,8,0,0);
}
</script>

We are facing 2 problems

1) Two menus are getting highlighted, the "Home" and the dynamic html menu which is called onLoad using dm_ext_setPressedItem (0,8,0,0); function)

2) The submenu of the dm_ext_setPressedItem (0,8,0,0) is not getting highlighted.

A: Try to set
  var pressedItem=-2;

dm_ext_setPressedItem function has a following parameters:
function dm_ext_setPressedItem (menuInd, submenuInd, itemInd, recursion, parentOpen)

So, if you want to highlight item in the submenu you should use itemInd of this item (notitemInd of the parent item).

For example you want to highlight submenu item of the 'Manage Users' parent item with
itemInd=15.
You can find more info about dynamic html menu indexes here:
http://deluxe-menu.com/highlighted-items-sample.html#ind

So you should write the function in the following way:
dm_ext_setPressedItem (0, 3, 15, 1, 1)

menuInd = 0 if you have only one menu on the page
submenuInd = 3, see how to determine submenuInd in the table

http://deluxe-menu.com/highlighted-items-sample.html#ind
itemInd = 15, see how to determine itemInd in the table

http://deluxe-menu.com/highlighted-items-sample.html#ind
recursion = 1, to highlight parent items
parentOpen = 1, to open the submenu with the selected item.


Q: Is there a way to programmatically specify which tab is selected in the drop down menu using javascript?

What I mean is, I want to set the selected tab programmatically (Not clicking the tab).

A: Deluxe Tabs doesn't support API functions which can return theselected tab.

If your site is written on PHP you can set "bselectedItem" and "varbselectedSmItem" parameters based on your link beforeyou call your data file.

For example, move "bselectedItem" and "  var bselectedSmItem" parametersfrom your data file to your code.

<TD vAlign=top align=left>
/* Select Tab */
<script type="text/javascript" language="JavaScript1.2">
  var bselectedItem=<?php echo $seltabs; ?>;
  var bselectedSmItem=<?php echo $selsmtabs; ?>;
</script>
<SCRIPT src="data.js" type=text/javascript></SCRIPT>
</TD>

You should define seltabs and selsmtabs using server side script.

You can also set it on every page before you call data.js file, forexample:

<TD vAlign=top align=left>
/* Select Tab */
<script type="text/javascript" language="JavaScript1.2">
  var bselectedItem=4;
  var bselectedSmItem=3;
</script>
<SCRIPT src="data.js" type=text/javascript></SCRIPT>
</TD>



Q: Is there a way to programmatically close a hover popup via javascript?

A: You can close the popup using the following function:document.getElementById('win').hide();

Unfortunately it won't work if you use iframe as window content.
You open another page in the popup (in Iframe) so you cannot access
document.getElementById('win').hide();
element which is situated on the first page.

When you use text or object_id as window content the content of the popup will be situated
on the same page so you can access document.getElementById('win') element and hide it.

There is a workaround for Iframe.
Use text as content type and add the following code inside popup:

<a onclick="document.getElementById('win').hide();">...</a> <iframe></iframe>

Q: I ran across your site on a search engine and downloaded the trial copy. I am playing around with it and have successfully generated  a menu bar which I wanted to try and test out.  I have followed the directions for installing it on my trial page of my website and can not get it to work. I am not sure what I am doing wrong .  I would truly love to buy this, but even with following the installation instructions, I can not get free javascript drop down menu to work.  I use Dreamweaver to build my site.

A: Deluxe Menu wasn't developed as Dreamweaver/Frontpage extension and wedon't have plug-ins for it. To install the menu into your html page:

1. create and save .js file with your menu parameters in Deluxe Tuner(you can use "File/Save as/HTML" function).
You can enter any name you like, for example enter "menu". So you'llhave menu.html, menu.js files and "menu.files" folder with all menu files.
2. open your .html page in Dreamweaver
3. Copy generated menu.js file and "menu.files/" folder in the same folderwith your index.html page.
4. Open generated menu.html in any text editor and copy several rows of code (<script> tags), For info see:
