Q: I can’t seem to figure out how to keep last clicked item in my java menu script marked.

I use these options:

pressedItem = -1

  var saveNavigationPath = 1;

Where and how do I determine the background color of the clicked item?

I also have this problem on Deluxe Tree.


A: The 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="http://deluxe-menu.com">Javascript Menu by Deluxe-Menu.com</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 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.


Q: I worked up some menus on my local machine and they work fine I want to push them to my server.
When I do, I don't see the menu that I saw on my local machine.
Instead, I see a hypertext link with a word that I used in one menu. What could be wrong?
Do I have to chmod the JS file? Do I have it mapped wrong. Is it because I am using a demo version?


A: Demo version of the menu has full functionality.
I can't find the call of dmenu.js file on deluxe-menu.htm and dmenu.js file in the "deluxe-menu_files" folder.
Please, upload this file on your server.

More info about the installation of the menu you can find here:

Q: At present the javascript drop down menus expand intelligently into the area with more real estate (i.e. up or down). How can I force the menus to only expand down?


A: Set the following parameter:
  var subMenuVAlign="bottom";


Q: I will build menu for several books’ Contents, each book is more than 100 lines and has links. I think if all the books’ contents in 1 *.JS file then it is TOO LOONG!!.
Can I break it down to 1 book for 1*.JS ? How?


A: You cannot divide your menuItems parameter.
You can only use one .js file for your menu parameters and the other.js file for your menuItems = [...];

But you can do it in two ways.

1) You can try to use several menus on the one page, for example:
param.js // file with menu parameters (all parameters before menuItems = [...];)
menu1.js // menuItems for "AC-DC", "ANLOG"
menu2.js // menuItems for "DIGITAL", "WinXP"
menu3.js // menuItems for "MS-Word", "MS-Excel"
In these menu files you should write
menuItems = [
...
];
dm_init();

Then you should install your menu in the following way

<script type="text/javascript" src="param.js"></script>
<table>
...
<script type="text/javascript" src="menu1.js"></script>
...
<script type="text/javascript" src="menu2.js"></script>
...
<script type="text/javascript" src="menu3.js"></script>

But it will be easier to use vertical menu in such case
  var isHorizontal=0;
  var smColumns=1;

2) You can also try to add some code, see the attached example.

In the first file (@MY books (Multiple Col.js) I write menuItems for the first item "AC-DC".
Notice that you should delete comma at the end of the last item
  var menuItems = [

["AC-DC","", , , , , , , , ],
 ["|@Book1","testlink.htm", , , , , , , , ],
...
 ["|@Book3","", , , , , , , , ],
   ["||CH02","", , , , , , , , ],
   ["||CH01","", , , , , , , , ] // delete comma at the end of the last item

];

In the second file (@MY books (1.js) you should write
menuItems = menuItems.concat(

[

["ANLOG","", , , , , , , , ],
 ["|@Book1","", , , , , , , , ],
 ["|@Book2","", , , , , , , , ],
 ["|@Book3","", , , , , , , , ] // delete comma at the end of the last item

]
);

In the third file (@MY books (2.js) you should write
menuItems = menuItems.concat(

[

["DIGITAL","", , , , , , , , ],
 ["|Item 1332","", , , , , , , , ],
["WinXP","", , , , , , , , ],
 ["|Item 1333","", , , , , , , , ],
["MS-Word","", , , , , , , , ],
 ["|Item 1334","", , , , , , , , ],
["MS-Excel","", , , , , , , , ],
 ["|Item 1335","", , , , , , , , ] // delete comma at the end of the last item
]
);

dm_init();

Notice that you should write dm_init(); function in the last file.

In the .html file you should write
...
<tr>
<script type="text/javascript" src="@MY books (Multiple Col.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="@MY books (1.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="@MY books (2.js"></script>
</tr>
I hope you understand me.
