Q: Greetings. How do I make a menu item as default selected and open when the page loads with the dhtml menu bar script? Thanks.

A: 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="">dhtml menu bar script by</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 dhtml menu bar script 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.

Q: I ran across your site on a search engine and downloaded the trial copy. I am playing around with it and have successfully generated  a menu bar which I wanted to try and test out.  I have followed the directions for installing it on my trial page of my website and can not get it to work. I am not sure what I am doing wrong .  I would truly love to buy this, but even with following the installation instructions, I can not get free javascript drop down menu to work.  I use Dreamweaver to build my site.

A: Deluxe Menu wasn't developed as Dreamweaver/Frontpage extension and wedon't have plug-ins for it. To install the menu into your html page:

1. create and save .js file with your menu parameters in Deluxe Tuner(you can use "File/Save as/HTML" function).
You can enter any name you like, for example enter "menu". So you'llhave menu.html, menu.js files and "menu.files" folder with all menu files.
2. open your .html page in Dreamweaver
3. Copy generated menu.js file and "menu.files/" folder in the same folderwith your index.html page.
4. Open generated menu.html in any text editor and copy several rows of code (<script> tags), For info see:

<!-- Deluxe Menu -->
<noscript><a href="">free javascript drop down menu by</a></noscript>
<script type="text/javascript">  var dmWorkPath="menu.files/";</script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="menu.files/dmenu.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="menu.js"></script>

That's all.

Q: For each item in my menu, can I specify an image in place of text or background?

A: If you want to use images instead item text, you should useindividual item styles. For example:

  var itemStyles = [
["itemWidth=200", "itemBackImage=image1.gif,image2.gif"], // style 0
["itemWidth=150", "itemBackImage=image3.gif,image4.gif"], // style 1

  var menuItems = [
[" ", "link", "", "", "tip", "target", "0"],
[" ", "link", "", "", "tip", "target", "1"],

Where "0", "1" - style number in itemStyles.

Please, use Deluxe Tuner application to create and assign individualstyles. You can find Deluxe Tuner in the trial package.

Q: I have problem with Deluxe CSS Menu. The menus function well, I can see all of the text at each level.
But the buttons in the css drop-down menu have no graphic shape or back gound color and this is at all levels.
I went through your support page but I cannot find anything that mentions this condition.
Please help help me solve this issue.

A: Try to set in Deluxe tuner: Tools->Copy all files when saving.

Try to export your menu to html once again.
