Javascript Menu. DHTML Menu.

  • There can be multi level menus - create as many rows or columns of the menu as you want.
  • Use a mouse to drag a menu as a usual window. Also you can construct the menu where each submenu can be "detached" from the main menu (MSOfficeToolbarLike mode).
  • When the page is scrolled the menu remains visible. The DHTML menu can "float" along one or two coordinate axes.

Q: I am ready to buy, I have downloaded the trial version and really like the way it sets up. Only one problem is the java script for menu making my page load slow. Is there anything I can do to make it faster? I would like to buy this software and finish my project today if you can help please.

A: If your menu is very large you can try to use AJAX technology:

Q: I'm trying out your menus, and I seem to have a problem with changing the title of a menu item. If the text is something like "Create a New Event" the entire menu spreads out and the rollover image starts replicating itself behind it, instead fo stretching with the text. So I see 1 /2 rollover images for that top level item, instead of just the one, width it's width spread out to accomodate the extra text.

I've tried the Styles bit, but that doesn't seem to fix the rollover image any...

Any pointers ?


A: You can try to set the exact width for each menu item using IndividualItem Styles.

You should use Individual Item Styles.
For example:
  var itemStyles = [
["itemWidth=120","itemBorderWidth=1","itemBorderStyle=solid,solid"], //style0
["itemWidth=100","itemBorderWidth=1","itemBorderStyle=solid,solid"], //style1
["itemWidth=130","itemBorderWidth=1","itemBorderStyle=solid,solid"], //style2
["itemWidth=150","itemBorderWidth=1","itemBorderStyle=solid,solid"], //style3
];

["Home","testlink.htm"],
["Samples","testlink.htm"],
 ["|Group 1","", , , , , "0", , , ],
 ["|Group 2","", , , , , "1", , , ],
 ["|Group 3","", , , , , "2", , , ],

...
[" More Samples","testlink.htm"],
 ["|Group 1","", , , , , "3", , , ],
 ["|Group 2","", , , , , "1", , , ],

Where "0", "1", "2", "3" - style number in itemStyles.

You also should check the width of your rollover image. It should bethe same width as your items.

You can also use
tags in the item text, for example:

  var menuItems = [
["line 1
line 2"],
];

Or you can set this parameter:

  var noWrap=0;

Try that.


Q: I downloaded the new version of dhtml menu source code copied the files over to my folder this menu was made with3.0 the files I copied over is 3.2 and now I get an error.

A: Now you have:

  var fontStyle=["nirmal 12px Trebuchet MS, Tahoma","nirmal 12px Trebuchet MS, Tahoma"];

It is not correct. You should write:

  var fontStyle=["normal 12px Trebuchet MS, Tahoma","normal 12px Trebuchet MS, Tahoma"];



Q: So, as you can see, I use "_self" in order to make the URL open in same window when left-clicked. If I set it to empty it opens in new window (is that correct behaviour (I thought we should use _blank to get that effect).


A: In the menuItems you can set target parameter for each itemindividually.
The following parameter:
  var itemTarget="_blank";
sets target for all items, so if you haven't specified target for theitem

["Arbeidsplaner","cp_workplan.php",,,,"","0","0"],

the target for this item will be "_blank".
