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.

Recent Questions

Q: What can I do to optimize the load time for dhtml rollover
and prevent reloading it from the server with every page reload.

A: You can try to use AJAX technology.

AJAX-like technology: data for submenus can be loaded "on-the-fly" from the server.

New parameter:
  var tajax = 0/1; - disables/enables AJAX-like support

Current syntax for item parameters (  var tmenuItems):
[text, link, iconNormal, iconOver, iconExpanded, tip, target, itemStyleInd, itemXPStyleInd, jsFileName]

Where jsFileName - .js filename on the server with submenu items (  var tmenuItems).



Q: Could you please explain how to increase the height of our javascript menu submenu links to 18 or 20 px each?

A: You can create Individual submenu style and assign it to the firstitem in each submenu.

  var menuStyles = [
["menuBackColor=transparent","menuBorderWidth=1","itemSpacing=1","itemPadding=0px 5px 0px 5px"],
["itemPadding=5px 2px 5px 2px"],
];

  var menuItems = [

["Advanced Taser Guns","http://www.defenseproducts101.com/tasers.html", "", "", "", "", "0", "", "", "", "", ],
 ["|Advanced Taser Guns","http://www.defenseproducts101.com/tasers.html", "", "", "", "", "", "1", "", "", "", ], //assign style



Q: I can't figure out how to get menu items to swap images to use like a traditional image rollover. In the Dhtml menu, I can change the style background without needing images, or I can use generic images as a background, but I have situations where I need to use unique images for each state of a button.

These unique image buttons contain text and graphics, and there are different images for different states: normal, mouse over, mouse down.


A: The menu has only two states normal and mouseover.
You should use Individual Item Styles.

Please, see the example of Deluxe Menu here:

http://deluxe-menu.com/data-templates/vista-style-02-template-sample.html

You should use "itemBackImage" parameter.

  var itemStyles = [
["itemWidth=92px","itemBorderWidth=0","fontStyle=normal 11px Tahoma","fontColor=#FFFFFF,#FFFFFF","itemBackImage=btn_greenblack.gif,btn_green.gif"],
];


Q: I'm trying out the trial version and so far I really like the features. Can you tell me if I can expel the transparent look of the mouse over drop down menu?

When the mouse over drop down menu drops down over text, you can see the text. What can I do to fix it.

A: You should set the following mouse over drop down menu parameter:

  var transparency="100";
