2.0 Buttons by Web-Buttons.com v3.0.0

Javascript Menu. DHTML Menu.

  • Use a mouse to move a menu as a usual window. Also you can create the menu where each submenu can be "separated" from the menu (MS Office toolbar-like mode).
  • When the page is scrolled the menu remains visible. The menu can "float" along one or two coordinate axes.
  • There can be multilevel menus - create as many rows of the menu as necessary. Any submenu in its turn can include different number of columns.

Recent Questions

Q: I can't figure out how to get menu items to swap images to use like a traditional image rollover. In the Dhtml menu, I can change the style background without needing images, or I can use generic images as a background, but I have situations where I need to use unique images for each state of a button.

These unique image buttons contain text and graphics, and there are different images for different states: normal, mouse over, mouse down.


A: The menu has only two states normal and mouseover.
You should use Individual Item Styles.

Please, see the example of Deluxe Menu here:

http://deluxe-menu.com/data-templates/vista-style-02-template-sample.html

You should use "itemBackImage" parameter.

  var itemStyles = [
["itemWidth=92px","itemBorderWidth=0","fontStyle=normal 11px Tahoma","fontColor=#FFFFFF,#FFFFFF","itemBackImage=btn_greenblack.gif,btn_green.gif"],
];


Q: When using javascript tabbed menu, where do I place the text content related to the selected tab, (the text presented on the rest of the screen under the tab)? And who do I connect a specfic text to a certain tab?

A: See, for each item you should assign the ID property of the contentDIV (see data file with your menu parameters). You should set  var tabMode=0;

["Style Name","contentName", "", "", "", "", "1", "", "", ],
["-","", "", "", "", "", "0", "", "", ],
["Style Description","contentDescription", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", ],
["-","", "", "", "", "", "0", "", "", ],
["Style Variations","contentVariations", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", ],
["-","", "", "", "", "", "0", "", "", ],
["Empty","", "", "", "", "", "2", "", "", ],

And on your html page you should create DIV's with such ID. You canset background image for these DIV's in styles.

<div id="contentName" style="height: 0%; visibility: hidden; background-image: url('img/back.jpg'); background-repeat:repeat-y;" class="tabPage">
<br><br><br>
<p align=center><img src="img/style01_title.gif" width=140 height=90 alt="Glass Style Tabs"></p>

<br><br><br>

You should paste content of javascript tabbed menu here!!!!!
</div>

<div id="contentDescription" style="height: 0%; visibility: hidden;" class="tabPage">
<br><br><br>
<p align=center><img src="img/style01_title.gif" width=140 height=90 alt="Glass Style Tabs"></p>

<br><br><br>

You should paste your description here!!!!!

Q: How can I center my navigation java script menu bar within my HTML page? I have tried putting the script into a table that is centered. I have also changed the   var menuWidth to 800px. The navigation bar is still right-justified instead of centered in both IE and Firefox/Mozilla.

A: Now you use absolute position for the java script menu bar:

  var absolutePos=1;
  var posX="0px";
  var posY="0px";


You should set:
  var absolutePos=0;



Q: I need to work it with PHP/MySQL. I have found some information on it in your Support section, but have problems to understand and wonder if you have more information or a working sample of the loading bar with PHP/ MySQL.

A: Info about generating menu (menu items )from a database, please, see:

http://deluxe-menu.com/generate-menu-from-database-xml-php-asp-vb-support.html
Please, see the example of .php file.
The content of .php file depends on your database structure.


<?php

// The example for PHP/MySQL.
// MySQL database has the table "menuTable" that contains data for menu items.
// The table has the following fields:
// 1. "text" - item text
// 2. "link" - item link
// 3. "icon1" - item icon (normal state)
// 4. "icon2" - item icon (mouseover state)
function getMenuItems()
{
$jsItems = '';

// Select all records from table "menuTable"
$allItems = mysql_query('SELECT * FROM menuTable;');

// Extract items data from database and build Javascript code for menuItems
while ($itemData=mysql_fetch_array($allItems))
{
$jsItems .= '["'.$itemData['text'].'", "'.$itemData['link'].'", "'.$itemData['icon1'].'", "'.$itemData['icon2'].'"],';
}

// Return Javascript code
return $jsItems;
}

?>

<script>
  var menuParam1 = value1;
  var menuParam2 = value2;
  var menuParam2 = value2;
...

  var menuItems = [

<?php

// Write Javascript code for menu items
echo getMenuItems();

?>

];

</script>
