Recent QuestionsQ: I got it working however I have an additional question.
How do I allocate the width of each "button" see sample how for instance the "FAQ" button is so narrow compared to others. I tried adding spaces with no result.
A: You can use Individual Item Styles to set exact width for the menuitems.
var itemStyles = [
["itemWidth=100px"], //style 0
var menuItems = [
["Home","testlink.html", "", "", "", "", "0", "", "", ], //style 0
["Product Info","", "", "", "", "", "0", "", "", ], //style 0
Q: I contact you because this morning we have bought a single license of your deluxe tree menu for our web site www.roderstore.com All features of tree menu work good when I try it on local computer.
When I send the files on web site there is the problem that we must work on different directory : the script must be saved in a directory and the html page with menu inside is installed in another directory.
We can't save the script inside the directory of html pages because there are a lot of pages that call the tree menu, in different levels of path.
In the header of html page I have write the absolute path of script ( http://www.domain.com/menu/it/deluxe-menu.files/ ) and I have called the source of script with all absolute path.
I presume that the problem is the different directory of script and html page ?
What can we do ?
You can also send us a direct link to your website, so we can check it.
Q: Can I make dhtml menu sample so a user can open a link on a Deluxe-Menu in a new browser tab instead of a new window using IE?
I really like your menu system.
A: You can try to write the following code for your items:
["<a href='index.html' target='_blank' class='home'>Home</a>","", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", ],
And create styles
Q: I'm trying to position my menus inside absolutely positioned <DIV> tags. If the <DIV> tag has style="position:absolute; top:100px; left:50px;" in the actual tag, deluxe-menu seems to work correctly. If I have the "position:absolute; top:100px; left:50px;" in a <STYLE> tag or a linked stylesheet and applied using id or class selectors, then deluxe-menu does not work correctly: sub menus have a 100pixel offset in the y direction and a 50 pixel offset in the x direction. This is with no change to the .js data file (I have absolutePos=0;) Is this a known issue, and is it planned to be fixed?
A: See, the problem is that the script can't get css properties of the object if they are described in separate .css block (or file).
In other words, you can't get the value of "position" attribute of the object if the object doesn't have this property within inline style(style="position:absolute"). To get the value you should move .css style into style="" attribute.
Please, try to add your
css file -> inline css, for example:
For example, you should add style="position:absolute;"
So, you'll have:
<DIV id=head style="position:absolute;">
Now we have only such solution for this problem.
We'll try to fix this problem in the future versions.
