Q: I see that you have the demo of the menu working over a frame so that it displays over the lower frame, vertical top to bottom.
However I have played around with your demo and can't seem to replicate the same feature.
Could you please tell me what I have to set to make the easy dropdown menu float over the lower framed window?

A: To initialize the cross frame menu call dm_initFrame() function instead of standard dm_init() function within data.js file:

dm_initFrame(framesetID, mainFrameInd, subFrameInd, orientation);

framesetID - id attribute of the frameset;
mainFrameInd - index of the main frame (where the top-menu is placed), >=0;
subFrameInd - index of the subframe (where the submenus will be shown), >=0;
orientation - frame orientaion: 0 - top-to-bottom, 1 - left-to-right; 2 - bottom-to-top; 3 - right-to-left.

For example, for the following structure:

<frameset id="frmSet" rows="185,*">
<frame id="frame1" src="cross-frame-horizontal-1.htm">
<frame id="frame2" name="testlink.htm" scrolling="no">
</frameset>

the dm_initFrame() function call at the end of data.js file will look like:

dm_initFrame("frmSet", 0, 1, 0);


Q: You've been helping me with some issues on the Deluxe Tree Menu system my company has purchased and most issues are resolved, so thank you! One big problem remains though and we can't seem to figure it out, so I hope you can help.

What we want is, when a user enters our site from the index (home) page then clicks on a link and the sub-page opens, for the dhtml menu tree to be open to the section the user is in and viewing. We also DO NOT want the browser to save the state of the menu, since that is inconsistent with where the user is in the site. Note: we do not use the Menu on the home page, is this a problem?

Per your tech support email, I've added the expand code, which works going from the home page to sub-pages. However, it interferes with navigating to other sub-pages once your in the site. The menu doesn't keep the section open, it closes back up. You mentioned the expand code has to be entered on every page....is that so in this instance and if so, that's a maintenance nightmare - does a better way exist for this type of menu?

Then we activated the "save state" option and the menu stays open on the sub-pages, but the expand option doesn't work.
It's like they cancel each other out and you can only have one or the other.

Can I get these two to work together? What do I need to do? Is it better to use the XP-style menu?

A: When user clicks the link, the browser loads a new page and the script re-create the dhtml menu tree.
If you want to open the needed section automatically on load you can use the following:

1. Save the state to cookies
2. Use frames
3. Put the special script on each page of site that will open appropriate section.

Q: I used Deluxe Menu and generated a beautiful drop down navigation menu for our school web page. however, I am using MS FrontPage and apparently it is blocking the content. Whenever I bring it into the program all I get is a text drop down navigation menu. What am I doing or not doing?

A: Deluxe Menu wasn't developed as Dreamweaver/Frontpage extension,BUT you can use it as standard Javascript files. To install the drop down navigation menuinto your html page:

1. create and save .js file with your menu parameters in Deluxe Tuner
2. open the page in Frontpage
3. add several rows of code (<script> tags), For info see:
http://deluxe-menu.com/installation-info.html

<head>
<!-- Deluxe Menu -->
<noscript><a href="http://deluxe-menu.com">Javascript Menu by Deluxe-Menu.com</a></noscript>
<script type="text/javascript">  var dmWorkPath="deluxe-menu.files/";</script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="deluxe-menu.files/dmenu.js"></script>
</head>
<body>
...
<script type="text/javascript" src="data-deluxe-menu.js"></script>//your data file created in Deluxe Tuner
...
</body>
You should copy all engine files and images for the drop down navigation menu in "deluxe-menu.files/" folder and paste it in the same folder with you .html files.

Engine files:
dmenu.js
dmenu4.js
dmenu_add.js
dmenu_dyn.js
dmenu_key.js
dmenu_cf.js
dmenu_popup.js
dmenu_ajax.js
dmenu_search.js

That's all.

It is possible that you'll have errors in the preview but your drop down navigation menushould work fine in the browser.
