Q: We are registered users of the Deluxe Menu software. Today I tried to use the Javascript API, but there is something I do not understand and want to ask for support.

First, I set up a very simple menu:

  var menuItems=[
['Menu 1'],
['|Submenu 1'],
['Menu 2'],
['|Submenu 2'],
];

This menu is built via dm_init().

Then, I inspect the menu (in Firebug):

>>> dm_ext_getSubmenuParams(0, 0)
["dm0m0", 2, "", 0, 1]
>>> dm_ext_getSubmenuParams(0, 1)
["dm0m1", 1, "dm0m0i0", 1, 0]
>>> dm_ext_getSubmenuParams(0, 2)
["dm0m2", 1, "dm0m0i1", 1, 0]

Ok, there are three submenus. Now I am going to delete one of them:

>>> dm_ext_deleteItem(0, 0, 1)

"Menu 2" disappears on the screen, this works as expected. But now when I re-inspect the menu using the API, I find that the API reports exactly the same as before:

>>> dm_ext_getSubmenuParams(0, 0)
["dm0m0", 2, "", 0, 1]
>>> dm_ext_getSubmenuParams(0, 1)
["dm0m1", 1, "dm0m0i0", 1, 0]
>>> dm_ext_getSubmenuParams(0, 2)
["dm0m2", 1, "dm0m0i1", 1, 0]

So, it seems the report function continues to know about the original menu structure and reflects it. Am I using the API in a wrong way?

The problem I want to solve is to remove the entire menu dinamico dhtml, in order to rebuild it dynamically. Because I did not see a function aimed to this functionality, my plan was to delete all main menu entries subsequently until the main menu inspector no longer reports an entry. Is there (a better) way to achieve this?

A: Unfortunately, dm_ext_deleteItem() only change visibility of theseitems.

It doesn't delete them completely.

We'll try to fix it in the next versions of Deluxe Menu.



Q: Two questions. First I get a "Error! Skin Load!" popup when my onmouseover popup window loads.
I see references to "skin.js". Is this supposed to be generated?

Secondly.

I am being really dense. I would like to use Deluxe Popup Windows in response to a mouse click on a picture. So far with deluxe Menu, I just put a statement like this:

<script type="text/javascript" src="rvmonitor.js"></script>
where I wanted the menu to show up. The web page loads and the Deluxe Menu displays.

I have managed to make the onmouseover popup window appear by using that code, the web page loads and the popup loads (with the skin error).

I know how to get a larger picture from a smaller one like this:

<a href="../images/Tige/CabinetMod/Tige_CabinetMod04.JPG">
<img class="border0" src="../images/Tige/CabinetMod/Tige_CabinetMod04_small.JPG" alt="Gasketmount">></a>

I just don't know how to put the rvmonitor.js into the <a href...></a> function. Could I have a simple example?

A: See, to install Deluxe Popup Window you should call two .js files onyour page:

<head>
...
<script type="text/javascript" src="deluxe-popup-window.files/dpopupwindow.js"></script> //engine file
</head>
<body>
...
<script type="text/javascript" src="deluxe-popup-window.js"></script> //data file
...
</body>

Copy deluxe-popup-window.files folder and deluxe-popup-window.js fileinto the same folder with your html page.

To open your window on mouse click you should do the following things:

<a title="Click to open the window" href="javascript:;"onclick="deluxePopupWindow.open('win', '<img class=\'border0\'src=\'../images/Tige/CabinetMod/Tige_CabinetMod04.JPG\' alt=\'Gasketmount\'>', 'Full Image', 'width=180,height=270,resizable,scrollbars=no,middle,right,fade-effect', 'windowsvista_graphite')"><imgmount\'>class="border0" src="../images/Tige/CabinetMod/Tige_CabinetMod04_small.JPG" alt="Gasket mount"></a>.


Q: Hi, I just downloaded a trial version of your software but I don't know how to use it. Do you have online tutorials to learn how to work with it?? Thank you.

You can use ready to use templates. You can find them in the templateswindow.

When you open Deluxe Tuner ( Deluxe Menu ) you can click "File/New"and add items and subitems using buttons "Add Item" and "Add Subitem" onthe main window.
You should set items and subitems parameters on the "Item Parameters"window.
See also other parameters for the menu on the main window.

http://deluxe-menu.com/individual-item-styles-info.html

2. You should install the menu on your page.
You can click, for example, File/Export to HTML (you can't do it inthe MAC version).

Add several rows into your html page.

<head>

<!-- Deluxe Menu -->

...
</head>

<body>
...
<table>

dmenu_add.js
dmenu_dyn.js
dmenu_key.js
dmenu_cf.js
dmenu_popup.js
dmenu_ajax.js
into "deluxe-menu.files/" folder. You should place this folder in thesame folder with your index. html page.


Q: I have just purchased your Deluxe Menu multi site license and I'm really enjoying it. I've been able to tweak a menu tree template to achieve the plain and simple expandable menu that I was looking for. However, I do have one quick question. My drop down menu in java script is overlapping some of my page content in both IE and Firefox. I've had the absolute positioning option turned off and on and the menu links still overlap. In Firefox they even move the page content quite a bit. I'm still playing around with it I just thought I would email for suggestions. Any help or tips you can offer would be greatly appreciated.

A: Try to set the following parameter to wrap text:

  var tnoWrap=0;
