Javascript Menu. DHTML Menu.

  • Use a mouse to move a menu as a usual window. Also you can create the menu where each submenu can be "separated" from the menu (MS Office toolbar-like mode).
  • When the page is scrolled the menu remains visible. The menu can "float" along one or two coordinate axes.
  • There can be multilevel menus - create as many rows of the menu as necessary. Any submenu in its turn can include different number of columns.

Recent Questions

Q: How would I use the submenu feature to display itself only if a person is logged in. such as if a person logged in then the member area would expand, else it would always stay closed with only the login username section showing?


A: Unfortunately it is not possible. You can only add items depending onthe logged user.

You should use API functions:
see more info:
http://deluxe-menu.com/functions-info.html
For example, you can use:
function dtreet_ext_insertItem (menuInd, parentItemID, itemInd, itemParams)
function dtreet_ext_deleteItem (menuInd, itemID)
function dtreet_ext_showItem (itemID, visibility)
function dtreet_ext_expandItem (itemID, expand)


Q: I have created a menu for a product tutorial. It consists of about 50 topics, each of which is listed in my menu. I’m wondering if there is a way to gray out the menu link for the open tutorial topic?


A: Unfortunately, Deluxe Menu doesn't have such a feature.
You should write your own code, for example, on PHP.

You can try to use the following function

function disable() {
dm_ext_changeItem(1, 1, 1, ["", "", "", "", "", "_"]);
}
to disable your items.

The example you can find on our site
http://www.deluxe-menu.com/dynamic-functions-sample.html

Please, see the source code.


Q: Is there a javascript API for the expandable menu tree to fire an user click event so the browser will load proper page accordingly? I looked around the current APIs from your site and could not find one.

Please advise.

A: You can use dtreet_ext_userClick (itemID) function.
See more info:

http://deluxe-tree.com/functions-info.html

Actually you can use your own Javascript code instead standard links and html code inside item text. For example:

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

or

  var tmenuitems = [
["<div onClick='urlSubstitution(\'transco/sheet.asp?stype=1\')'>Table of Contents</div>", ""]
];


Q: I do have issues. There are not the problems when you are on the home page (you can click on one of the dropdown submenus and go there.
However, when you try to go to another page from there to another page on a nother drop down, nothing happens except javascript erros. The dropdowns physical work, in that they drop down, but the links don't go anywhere. Does that make sense.


A: See, the problem was in your dmWorkPath parameter

On all pages placed in the subfolder you should write it in thefollowing way:

<script type="text/javascript">  var dmWorkPath = "../ifnav.files/";</script>

Please, correct it.

You should also use additional parameters to make menu paths absolute:

  var pathPrefix_img = "http://domain.com/images/";
  var pathPrefix_link = "http://www.infocusnet.org/design/";

These parameters allow to make images and links paths absolute.
For example:

  var pathPrefix_img = "http://domain.com/images/";
  var pathPrefix_link = "http://www.infocusnet.org/design/";

  var menuItems = [
["text", "index.html", "icon1.gif", "icon2.gif"],
];

So, link path will be look so:
http://domain.com/pages/index.html

Images paths will be look so:
http://domain.com/images/icon1.gif

Please, use pathPrefix_link parameter.
