Q: A brief one on dynamic menu in the perspective of bilinguism

I understood from the tuner that a menu can be made dynamic (although it is somewhat minimally documented ;-))

Leaving alone all the beautiful sophisticated and complex mechanic of it

Say I have my main menu that says :
  var dynamic=1; (that's all I got from the doc ..)

And then

  var menuItems = [

["Choice 1 ","page1.php", "", "", "Choice 1",", "_self", "", "", "", "", "", ],

["Choice 2","page2.php", "", "", "Choice 2", "_self", "", "", "", "", "", ],
];

Minimalist ? ;-) right ?

1/ first I'm not too sure about what exactly in order are these 11 parameters although I'm fine with the only 4 I have here

2/ if I would want to change on the fly menu javascript dropdown page on a PHP parameter Page1.php?lang=French (I perfectly master how to capture the PHP value)

So that My menu becomes on the fly

["Choix 1 ","page1.php", "", "", "Choix 1",", "_self", "", "", "", "", "", ],
["Choix 2","page2.php", "", "", "Choix 2", "_self", "", "", "", "", "", ],

Thanks in advance if you can shed some light on this

PS : And although I used hardly 1% of deluxe capability my first customer is very happy about it..

A: Actually you can find all info about the menu javascript dropdown parameters and featureson our website:

To change the menu items on the fly you can use API functions
function dm_ext_changeItem (menuInd, submenuInd, itemInd, iParams)
function dm_ext_addItem (menuInd, submenuInd, iParams)
function dm_ext_changeItemVisibility (menuInd, submenuInd, itemInd, visibility)


Q: I have been evaluating your dhtml-tree product, for a potential use.

It does just about every thing I want apart from 1 thing:

I want each css dropdown menu item to (optionally) support the following syntax:

<a href="menu_link.html" onClick="return fnClickedLinked()">Menu Link</a>

I have worked out how to change the "menu_link.html", and also that it could be something like "javascript:fnClickedLinked()".

However I want the above syntax, where search engines can pick up the link and if my function returns false, the link is not followed when clicked.

Is this possible?

Or can I cancel the link navigation using the tree API node click event??

A: Actually you can add the html code inside item's text:

 ["|<a href="menu_link.html" onClick="return fnClickedLinked()">Menu Link</a>","", "", "", "", "Tip", "", "", "", "", ],

You can also try to use API function:

function dtreet_ext_userClick (itemID)

Q: I can't figure out how to change the names of each tab for the simple dhtml tabs!

A: You can set the name of each tab in the Deluxe Tuner.
Double click on the item name in the Items area.

Or set the name of the tab using   var bmenuItems:

  var bmenuItems = [
["Name of Tab1","content1", "", "", "", "", "1", "", "", ],
["-","", "", "", "", "", "0", "", "", ],
["Name of Tab2","content2", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", ],
["-","", "", "", "", "", "0", "", "", ],
["Name of Tab2","content3", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", ],
["-","", "", "", "", "", "0", "", "", ],
["Contact us","content4", "", "", "", "", "2", "", "", ],
];

Q: The cascading javascript menu does not spans frames or windows like Applets. Is that correct?

I was not able to make the sample to do it.

A: The DHTML Menu and Java Menu are built on different technologies.Java menus can create submenus that cover frames as a standard Windowssubmenus. DHTML Menu can't do that, because it's controls is htmlobjects, they can't overlap Windows controls. So, cascading javascript menu hascross-frame ability that allows it to show submenus in differentframes. But it can support this mode for the same domain only -- ifyou loaded a page to a subframe from another domain, the submenuscan't be shown in it. It happens because all browsers don't allow todo that for security reasons. Just imagine if you'll able to create aframeset from 2 frames, 1st frame will be with a zero height-width,and you'll load your page into it. Then user will go to another domainand your "invisible" frame will change a content of other pages!
