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

Recent Questions

Q: Our company bought the deluxemenu bundle about one year ago.

We were wondering is there any api for the deluxmenu js tabs available?

We would need to programatically open a particular tab.

A: No, unfortunately Deluxe Tabs doesn't support API functions now.

You can use the following function to open specific tab:
dtabs_itemClick(menuInd,itemInd);
where
menuInd - index of a tab menu on a page, >= 0.
itemInd - index of a item, >=0.

For example:

<DIV onClick="dtabs_itemClick(0,2)" style="width: 200px; border: 2px solid #000;">Click to open the third tab</DIV>


Q: How do assign my own onclick events to menu options for the dhtml menubar?
I want do more than just redirect to an href.

A: Actually you can use your own Javascript code instead standard links.
For example:

  var menuItems = [
["text", "javascript:your_code_here"]
];

or

  var menuitems = [
["<div onClick='your_code_here'>item text</div>", ""]
];



Q: Your service is excellent and I am making progress learning the program. I was able to resolve the transparency issue thanks to your help but, but now I have another one that is stumping me.

I can get the menu to show up in my html document and it works as I hoped it would. However, no matter where I put the line of code in my html file, the down menu in dhtml always shows up at the very top of the page. The instructions indicate the following:

Copy the following code into clipboard and paste it into the place you want to have the down menu in dhtml:

<script type="text/javascript" src="newmenu2.js"></script>

For example, into a table cell:
<table>
<td><script type="text/javascript" src="newmenu2.js"></script></td>
</table>

No matter where I put the code:
<script type="text/javascript" src="newmenu2.js"></script>, the menu shows up at the top of the page.
What am I missing?

A: Check that you're using relative position for the down menu in dhtml:

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



Q: Hi, I am looking at your Deluxe Menu package. It looks very nice, but I cannot find any kind of manual for how to use it. There's some online documentation on the Tuner, but (for example) I can't find anything that documents the dm_popup window open options. I find some sample code I can copy that has the call

return dm_popup(0, 1000, event)

1. So, what do these parameters mean?
2. It takes a long time for the menu to go away if you don't click anything. From tracing through the obfuscated javascript with firebug, it looks like the second parameter sets a timeout to make the menu go away. But when I change the "1000" to "1", the menu does not appear to behave any differently.
3. If I want to have more than one of these menus show up on the page, how would I do that?
4. I have it set up to show the popup when you right-click a page element. However, the menu items only appear to fire if you then left-click them. This is confusing to the user: I'd like to have the menu items also fire when you right-click them for consistency. How would I configure this?

These are the kinds of questions I would like to have answers to, but I cannot find any relevant documentation. Do I have lots of tracing through javascript ahead of me? If I have just missed the relevant documentation, please tell me where to find it. I would love to use your product, but if I have to spend all my time tracing javascript it's not a big win for me. Thanks for your assistance.

A: 1) You can find window open options info on our website:
http://deluxe-menu.com/popup-mode-sample.html
Click "Show additional info" button on this page.

2) You should adjust the second parameter in dm_popup() function:dm_popup(0, 500, event);

3) See the first parameter in the dm_popup() function is menuInd, soif you want to create several popup menus you should create severaldata file and call them on your page, for example:
<script type="text/javascript" language="JavaScript1.2" src="menu-top.js"></script> // ID - 0 //standard menu (doesn't use popup feature)
<script type="text/javascript" language="JavaScript1.2" src="source_pop.js"></script> // ID - 1
<script type="text/javascript" language="JavaScript1.2" src="source_pop1.js"></script> // ID - 2
<script type="text/javascript" language="JavaScript1.2" src="source_pop2.js"></script> // ID - 3
<script type="text/javascript" language="JavaScript1.2" src="source_pop3.js"></script> // ID - 4

and so on.

See how you should call dm_popup() functions:

<img src="../../../../fileadmin/img/flag_de.gif" width="50"
onMouseOver="return dm_popup(1, 2000, event);" style="cursor: pointer;">
// 1 - is ID of the second menu
....

<img src="../../../../fileadmin/img/flag_fr.gif" width="50"
onMouseOver="return dm_popup(2, 2000, event);" style="cursor: pointer;">
// 2 - is ID of the third menu
// 3 - is ID of the fourth menu
... and so on.

4) Unfortunately it is not possible now.

Unfortunately we don't have additional documentation yet. But you canfind all need info on our website. Try to use search field on ourwebsite.

You can dynamically generate the menu structure. For example movemenuItems into your phph page (or embed in a Smarty Template) insideSCRIPT tag:

 <script type="text/javascript">
    var menuItems = [
      ["Terminal","index.php?form=TERMINAL&tid={$tid}"],
      ["Kassenschnitte","index.php?form=KS&tid={$tid}"],
      ["Buchungen Debit","index.php?form=DEBIT&tid={$tid}"],
      ["Kredit- / Bonuskarten","index.php?form=KREDIT&tid={$tid}"],
      ["Rucklastschriften","index.php?form=RLAST&tid={$tid}"],
      ["Monatsstatistik","index.php?form=STATISTIK&tid={$tid}"],
      ["RL-H.Rechnung","index.php?form=RLASTABR&tid={$tid}"],
      ["LiveStream","index.php?form=LIVESTREAM&tid={$tid}"],
      ["Reports","index.php?form=REPORTS&tid={$tid}"],
      ["Datenhistorie","index.php?form=HISTORY&tid={$tid}"],
      ["Bankleitzahlen","index.php?form=BLZ&tid={$tid}"],
      ["<br />Ihre Nutzerdaten","index.php?form=NDATEN&tid={$tid}"],
   ["<br />{$NAVI}",""],
  ];
  dm_init();
</script>
