Recent Questions

Q: Is there any way to call a javascript function on mouseover from a menu item?

A: You can use your own javascript functions in the menu items.

You should paste "javascript:some_function()" into item's link field, for example:

  var menuItems = [
["text", "javascript:your_function(...)", ...]
];

  var menuItems = [
["item text", "javascript:alert('Hello World')", , , , ,]
];

Unfortunately, you can't assign onmouseover/onClick event to each item. However, you can achieve this by using standard html objects within items, for example:

  var menuitems = [
["<div onMouseover='your_code_here'>item text</div>", "index.html"]
];



Q: I have built a menu with deluxe menu and I have put everything in the same map but the page doesn't display the drop down menu it says there is an error. Could you look what I do wrong?

A: It is not correctly to write local paths on your website. They won'twork:

<script type="text/javascript" src="file:///C:/Test%20website%202008/x5/data.js"></script></td>

You should upload your data.js file in the same folder with yourdmenu.js file and write:

<script type="text/javascript" src="data.files/data.js"></script></td>



Q: What I meant was that there is an API function dm_ext_changeItem that allows you to specify 8 dropdown menu parameters in an array. What if I only want to change one of them like the link for example? What do I specify in my function call to leave the other 7 parameters unchanged? Do I specify the existing values? Or, can I just put in a comma with no parameter? That would be a lot easier. Thank you.

A: You should specify only dropdown menu parameters you want to change.

You should just put a commas with no parameters, for example:

dm_ext_changeItem(0, 0, 1, ["Deluxe Menu Info", "", "", "", "Deluxe Menu Hint",,"1"]);


Q: I am trying to have the selected top menu w dhtml item remain on the mouseover event after it is selected. It seemed to be working fine when i was just testing with # as a link but when i actually linked to different pages it returns to normal. How do i get this to work.

I tried removing the variable from the data file and calling it using
<script type="text/javascript" language="JavaScript1.2">   var pressedItem=set 1,2,3 depending on page </script>
but this does not seem to work as it does for tabs.

A: You can find more info here:
http://www.deluxe-menu.com/highlighted-items-sample.html

Deluxe Menu has only two states normal and mouseover.

Try to do the following things:

- delete   var pressedItem=1; parameter from your data file
- set correct parameter on each page before you call data file, forexample:

<noscript><a href="http://deluxe-menu.com">menu w dhtml by Deluxe-Menu.com</a></noscript>
<script type="text/javascript">  var dmWorkPath = "menudir/";</script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="menudir/dmenu.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">  var pressedItem=3;</script>
...
<script type="text/javascript" src="menudir/data.js"></script>

You can also set a pressed item using Javascript API:

function dm_ext_setPressedItem (menuInd, submenuInd, itemInd, recursion)

Sets a current pressed item.
menuInd - index of a menu on a page, >= 0.
submenuInd - index of a submenu, >= 0.
itemInd - index of an item, >=0.
recursion = true/false - highlight parent items.

But notice, to use dm_ext_setPressedItem() you should know ID of selected item and subitem.
You can't get this ID after you reload your page. That is why you should write your own code on PHP.
