Javascript Menu. DHTML Menu.

  • Tune menu parameters manually or using Deluxe Tuner. Then add several rows of a code within html page - your menu is ready!
  • Use special JavaScript functions for: Dynamic changing of items (text, link, icons and even individual style!). Making a menu item active/inactive. Addition/removing of items. Changing of visibility of items. Getting the information on any menu, submenu and items. Other tricks.
  • Opportunity to control the menu from the keyboard.
  • Cross-frame mode allows you to build full-featured menus on the pages that use frame-based structure. But for all that it's not necessary to insert any additional code into all the pages - just specify some additional parameters of the menu.

Q: I want javascript navigation menu to lock into place when someone visits a page. Is there a way to do this?

A: Try to set the pressed item using the following API function:
function dm_ext_setPressedItem (menuInd, submenuInd, itemInd, recursion, parentOpen)
Sets a current pressed item.
menuInd - index of a dynamic menu on a page, >= 0.
submenuInd - index of a submenu, >= 0.
itemInd - index of an item, >=0.
recursion = true/false - highlight parent items.
parentOpen = true/false - open all submenus to show the selected item

See example here:
http://deluxe-menu.com/highlighted-items-sample.html

Try to click 'Highlight "Product Info/Installation/Description ofFiles" item'.

You can also try to use the following parameter:
  var smHidePause = 1000;
A delay (in ms) between mouse is moved from submenu and its closing.
You can make submenus to stay visible till you click outside the menu or scroll your page.
To enable this feature you should set this parameter in the following way:   var smHidePause = -1;



Q: Are there instructions on how to set up cross-frame mouseover menu?

A: You should create your menu in Deluxe Tuner, save it.
Create html file with your frame set.

Set ID for the first frameset:
<FRAMESET id=frmSet rows=220,*>
<FRAME id=frame1 src="Deluxe Menu Samples_files/cross-frame-horizontal-1.htm"> //menu frame
<FRAME id=frame2 name=frame2 src="Deluxe Menu Samples_files/testlink.htm"> //content frame
</FRAMESET>

Then you should open your data file in any text editor and change
dm_init(); to dm_initFrame("frmSet", 0, 1, 0);




Q: I am very interested in using your deluxe menu products for my new website design, particularly the Tree Menu. I've been looking at the javascript tree source and am a bit worried that the links used will not be recognised by Search Engine robots - do you have any information regarding implementation of your menus so that the links are fully visible to search engines ?

A: You can generate search engine friendly code.
Deluxe Tree is a search engine friendly menu since v2.4.
To create a search engine friendly menu you should add additional html code within your html page:

<div id="dmlinks">
<a href="http://deluxe-menu.com">menu_item_text1</a>
<a href="http://deluxe-tree.com">menu_item_text2</a>
...etc.
</div>

To generate such a code use Deluxe Tuner application.
You can find this GUI in the trial package.
Run Tuner, load your menu and click Tools/Generate SE-friendly Code (F3).



Q: For example if you use the Growing Goodness menu located under Media Categories the first category is Agriculture w/ a sub category "Community Supported (CSA)" it is the sub category that is an active link. Is it possible to have only the active link "Community Supported (CSA) underlined and not Agriculture? And the same for all the other active links in this menu, all that have hyperlinks assigned to them.

A: You can write your links in the following way:

["Channels","", , , , , , , , ],
 ["|<a class='menu' href='http://growinggoodness.com/callingfromthecoast.htm'>Eco-Friendly</a>","", , , , "_self", , , , ],
 ["|<a class='menu' href='http://growinggoodness.com'>Farmers Market</a>","", , , , "_", , , , ],
["Media Categories","", , , , , , , , ],
 ["|Agriculture","", , , , , , , , ],
   ["||<a class='menu' href='http://growinggoodness.com/csa.htm'>Community Supported (CSA)</a>","", , , , "_self", , , , ],
   ["||Movie Trailers","", , , , , , , , ],
   ["|||<a class='menu' href='http://growinggoodness.com/farmboymovie.htm'>Farmboy</a>","", , , , "_self", , , , ],
   ["|||<a class='menu' href='http://growinggoodness.com/strongrootsfragilefarms.htm'>Strong Roots, Fragile Farms</a>","", , , , "_self", , ,, ],
   ["|||<a class='menu' href='http://growinggoodness.com/therealdirtonfarmerjohn.htm'>The Real Dirt On Farmer John</a>","", , , , "_self", , ,, ],

And create a style:
A.menu {
color: #FFF;
text-decoration: none;}
A.menu:hover {
color: #FFF;
text-decoration: underline;}
