Getting the info on every submenu, menu, and items. Changing appearance of items. Other coding tricks.

Recent Questions

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 have another question.. after I successfully click and load the data in to my window using the mouseover tab, the tab defaults back to the original default tab.
Because I have to reload my page after the tab has been selected the tab chosen is lost. What do you recommend for "remembering" the tab so that when the page reloads the correct tab is highlighted. I know that I need to set the   var bselectedItem but if you have a "nifty" way for me to do that I am all ears.

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

You can set "bselectedItem" and "  var bselectedSmItem" parametersbased on your link before you call your data file.

For example, move "  var 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: The pop-up windows are loading as the page loads, as well as when you click the appropriate object.
How can we prevent the pre-loading of html popups so that they only load onclick?

A: In that case you shouldn't set openAfter and closeAfter parameters.

So, you'll have:

deluxePopupWindow.attachToEvent(win,',,,,,')
or
deluxePopupWindow.attachToEvent(win,'openAfter=,closeAfter=,,,,')

See the following example:

Q: Is this transparent feature there for individual submenu styles or for individual menu items in scrolling menu? I want that.

A: See, you can use "transparent" value instead of any color in the mainmenu parameters and in Individual styles.

  var menuBackColor="transparent";
  var menuBorderColor="transparent";
  var itemBackColor=["transparent","transparent"];
  var itemBorderColor=["transparent","transparent"];
  var moveColor="transparent";
  var shadowColor="transparent";

  var itemStyles = [
["itemBackColor=transparent,transparent","itemBorderColor=transparent,transparent"],
];

  var menuStyles = [
["menuBackColor=transparent","menuBorderColor=transparent"],
];
