Q: I downloaded the trial version, so I’m doing some testing....

I can’t highlight the selected dhtml pop up menu item of the current page. The   var ttoggleMode is enabled and
tpressedFontColor = "#AA0000

This is caused by the trial version?

A: Please, check the following parameter

  var pressedItem=-2;
This parameter sets an index of an item that will be highlighted by default.
-2 - the toggle mode is disabled;-1 - the toggle mode is enabled, bu
t no items highlighted by default;
0,1,2,3,... - index of highlighted item in a top-menu.

The menu has only two states normal and mouseover. We'll try to add the pressed state in the future.

You can 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.

You can also set the correct
  var pressedItem=1;
parameter on each html page.



Q: I'm am try to use your Deluxe drop down menu generator and can not get it to work..

A: Unfortunately we don't have step by step tutorial yet.
We'll try to create it in the nearest time.

1. Create your menu in Deluxe Tuner.

When you open Deluxe Tuner you can click "File/New"and add items and subitems using buttons "Add Item" and "Add Subitem" onthe main window.
You should set items and subitems parameters on the "Item Parameters"window.
See also other parameters for the menu on the main window.

More info about menu parameters you can find on our site
http://deluxe-menu.com/parameters-info.html
http://deluxe-menu.com/menu-items-info.html

You can also use Individual Styles for items and subitems
http://deluxe-menu.com/individual-item-styles-info.html
http://deluxe-menu.com/individual-submenu-styles-info.html

2. You should install the menu on your page.
You can click, for example, File/Export to HTML.

So, you'll have folder with all engine files and images("Deluxe-menu.files/" folder by default), Deluxe-menu.html file anddata-Deluxe-menu.js file with all menu parameters.

Open Deluxe-menu.html file in any text editor and copy several rows ofcode into your page (for example index.html page of your website).

Copy and paste several rows into your html page (index.html).

<head>
...
<!-- Deluxe Menu -->
<noscript><a href="http://deluxe-menu.com">drop down menu generator by deluxe-menu.com</a></noscript>
<script type="text/javascript">  var WorkPath="Deluxe-menu.files/";</script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="Deluxe-menu.files/dmenu.js"></script>
...
</head>

<body>
...
<table>
<tr><td><script type="text/javascript" src="Deluxe-menu.files/data-Deluxe-menu.js"></script></td></tr> //data-Deluxe-menu.js - data file
created in
Deluxe Tuner.
</table>
...
</body>

You should also copy "Deluxe-menu.files/" folder with all engine files
dmenu.js
dmenu4.js
dmenu_add.js
dmenu_dyn.js
dmenu_key.js
dmenu_cf.js
dmenu_popup.js
dmenu_ajax.js
dmenu_search.js
and data-Deluxe-menu.js file into the same folder with your index.html page.

Try that.

Q: I make an example of html menu, but when i use it with frameset then the menu not show completly.

Is this possible, perhaps by using a javascript call?


A: To initialize the cross frame menu you should call dm_initFrame() function
instead of standard dm_init() function within data.js file:

dm_initFrame(framesetID, mainFrameInd, subFrameInd, orientation);

framesetID - id attribute of the frameset;
mainFrameInd - index of the main frame (where the top-menu is placed), >=0;
subFrameInd - index of the subframe (where the submenus will be shown), >=0;
orientation - frame orientaion: 0 - top-to-bottom, 1 - left-to-right; 2 - bottom-to-top; 3 - right-to-left.
