Javascript Menu. DHTML Menu.

  • There can be multi level menus - create as many rows or columns of the menu as you want.
  • Use a mouse to drag a menu as a usual window. Also you can construct the menu where each submenu can be "detached" from the main menu (MSOfficeToolbarLike mode).
  • When the page is scrolled the menu remains visible. The DHTML menu can "float" along one or two coordinate axes.

Recent Questions

Q: I have a issue involving the location of the files.

What is the correct method of referencing the webroot (document root) in the deluxe tuner?

I ask because I have some pages that are in a sub folder on the server.
eg. index page is http://www.domain.com/index.html
but another page might be at
http://www.domain.com/somedir/somepage.html

And then the references do not work.
Currently I am editing the data.js file after saving it in deluxe tuner.


A: If you want to use relative paths you should write your links in thefollowing way.

If you have, for example such file structure:

     deluxe-menu_files/
      dmenu.js
      data.js
     images/
     html_pages/
      page1.html
      page2.html

     index.html

So, you should write write all your paths concerning index.html file.
For example, you paths will be:
    ["HOME","html_pages/page1.html", , , , "_self", "-1", , , ],
    ["ABOUT US","html_pages/page2.html", , , , , , , , ],

Unfortunately, Deluxe Tuner can't do it automatically. You shouldcorrect your paths manually.

You can use additional parameters to make menu paths absolute:

  var pathPrefix_img = "http://domain.com/images/";
  var pathPrefix_link = "http://domain.com/pages/";

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

  var pathPrefix_img = "http://domain.com/images/";
  var pathPrefix_link = "http://domain.com/pages/";

  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
http://domain.com/images/icon2.gif

Please, try to use these parameters.


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: Would it be possible at some point to introduce more font decoration options to the mouseover variables, I would like to add bold as a mouseover font decoration, but obviously this is not possible at the moment.


A: Unfortunately, Deluxe Menu doesn't have such a feature. You can onlyset it's color. You cannot set the font of menu item bold when selected.

You should addthe following code in your data file:

function changeFont(obj, over)
{
obj.style.fontWeight = over ? 'bold' : 'normal';
obj.style.fontSize = over ? '13px' : '12px'; // You can not use this line
}

  var menuItems = [

["<div onMouseOver='changeFont(this, 1)' onMouseOut='changeFont(this, 0)'>Security</div>","", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", ],
["<div onMouseOver='changeFont(this, 1)' onMouseOut='changeFont(this, 0)'>Ease of Access</div>","", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", ],
["|<div onMouseOver='changeFont(this, 1)' onMouseOut='changeFont(this, 0)'>Internet Options</div>","", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", ],
["|<div onMouseOver='changeFont(this, 1)' onMouseOut='changeFont(this, 0)'>Windows Firewall</div>","", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", ],
["<div onMouseOver='changeFont(this, 1)' onMouseOut='changeFont(this, 0)'>Network and Internet</div>","", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", ],
["<div onMouseOver='changeFont(this, 1)' onMouseOut='changeFont(this, 0)'>Hardware</div>","", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", ],



Q: I am trying to create a multicolumn dhtml navigation menu and nothing appears when I upload it to my server. I am attaching my menu called menu.js that I have created and placed in a folder called menudir.

Can you please advise, thank you.

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">dhtml navigation menu 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.
