Recent Questions

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: As a part-time webdeveloper I have gotten very interested in your product. I really appreciate a number of things

- it's very flexible
- it's very easy to work with
- examples nicely show the capabilities

But I have a couple of questions:

- When opening a menu, there is an option for keeping the menu-item that has been pressed hightlighed (so that the user can see what he/she pressed). Is it possible, programmatically, to decide when this highlighting should be removed? The scenario is that, when a menu-item is clicked the used might browse for a couple of pages within the context defined by the menu-item, but when the user leaves, the menu-item should no longer be highlighted. I will (programmatically) decide the context, but is it possible for me to interact with the menu, and for example decide explicitly which menu should be highlighted?
- Our design department would like the menu containing the elements: "Skovdrift, Juletreer, Skovrejsning, etc". Please notice that "Brende" is supposed to show a menu item that is hightlighted. Is is possible to create this menu such that it is dynamic and each item is text-based (and not based on two pictures for each menu-entry: hightlighted and not)? I've been wondering how to solve this problem, but I cannot figure out a solution. The problem that I is stuck at, is how organise this speciel "frame" around each menu-element. Something that be partly accomplished using "arrowImageMain", but that does not bring me all the way. Please notice that the menu-items might not have any sub-menu.


A: I suppose that you're saying about
  var pressedItem=-2;
Defines an item that will appear in the highlighted state
(-2 - normal mode, -1 - toggle mode is active, but highlighted item not defined, 0,1,2,3,... - # of pressed item including separators)

This parameter will not approach you.

You should 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 trying to figure out how to make multiple clickable link popup windows on the same page.

A: You can do it in two ways:
1) Call different data files with DIFFERENT winID:"window1"!

2) Call only one data file and use deluxePopupWindow.open() function to open your windows:

<a href="javascript:;" onclick="deluxePopupWindow.open('window1', 'Content1 Content1', 'Window1',
'width=220,height=100,resizable,scrollbars=no,middle,right,fade-effect',
'windowsvista_graphite')">Click Here to see a chase1 sample</a>

Q: - I downloaded and installed your trial version..
- Selected "Tuner" then "tabs"
- Left pane sorta baffled me - even after reading documentation
- so in preview pane I selected "Templates" and Kaspersky style..
- The preview looked nothing like the kaspersky javascript menu example.. My feeling was that I had to somehow find the image elements to complete the menu tabs.. (A rather daunting task)..
- AM I missing something??

A: To use Kaspersky style javascript menu example you should assign Individual Stylesfor your items. You can find this info in the templates window.
