Recent QuestionsQ: I'm using your DHTML menu product.
I've read the parameters but am unable to make the drop down menu links stop spawning a new window on click.
I love the product and want to use it on my web but I've got to make it stop having babies! Have you some advice for me or a FAQ page you can send?
A: You should use the following parameter
var itemTarget = "_self";
Please, see also individual items targets, for example:
["|Features","testlink.html", "default.files/icon2.gif", "default.files/icon2o.gif", , "_blank", , , , ],
Change "_blank" to "" or to "_self".
Q: I purchased the most recent version of "Deluxe Menu & Tree & Tabs & Window Multiple Website License", and now can't open menus from previous versions. When I try to open a custom drop down menu that was created in an older version, I get the error:
Can't open the file:
Check youre encode parameter
This happens on all of the older menus that we're trying to update............Do I have to run some type of conversion program on older menu files?
Please let me know as quickly as possible.........we have over 100 custom drop down menus out there and now it seems that we can't edit them!
A: This message means that you should change the encoding:
"Tools/Use utf8 encode"
Change this setting and then open your data files.
Q: The window pops up every time I load the screen.
I want dhtml pop up window to pop when someone clicks.
A: You can specify the ID of the element you want to click on.
Actions sections in Deluxe Tuner, onClick parameter.
1) You can show the popup window when you hover, click or mouseout on some elements on yourpage. For example you have:
<p><img border="0" src="images/submenu-bg.gif" width="170" height="29" id="open_popup"></p>
So, in Deluxe Tuner you should enter 'open_popup' object ID in the onMouseOver,
onClick or onMouseOut fields.
Actually you can assign id to any object on your page:
add id="open_popup" for <a>, <div>, <img> ... tags.
2) You can also use deluxePopupWindow.open() function to open the popups.
More info about deluxePopupWindow.open() function you can find:
function deluxePopupWindow.open("winID", "content", "header", "param", "skin", "contentType")
Use another winID (first parameter) than you have in your data file if you don't want to close 1-st popup window or use thesame winID=win if you want to close 1-st popup.
content - will be the path to the file you want to load in your popup (files/test.html)
skin - is the name of your skin (default in my example)
contentType - set this parameter to iframe.
If you want to open several windows at once use different id's for each link.
Q: I used your trial version. In my application, I need one column of submenu to be displayed, all other columns should be closed.
A: You should adjust the following parameters, for example you should write so:
var transDuration=350; //Delay of a transitional effect (in ms) on submenu's showing.
var transDuration2=200; //Delay of a transitional effect (in ms) on submenu's hiding.
