Recent Questions

Q: I am spending a lot more time and have figured a few things out. One more question please: How do I specify the target link I want a dhtml submenu to go to?

I see HREF specified in the code, but no where in the program to specify it.


A: See, the following parameter sets target for all items

  var itemTarget="_self";

If you want to set different target for each item you should set it inthe "Item Parameters" window. Choose your item in the main window andset target in the target field.


Q: I see that you have the demo of the menu working over a frame so that it displays over the lower frame, vertical top to bottom.
However I have played around with your demo and can't seem to replicate the same feature.
Could you please tell me what I have to set to make the easy dropdown menu float over the lower framed window?

A: To initialize the cross frame menu 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.

For example, for the following structure:

<frameset id="frmSet" rows="185,*">
<frame id="frame1" src="cross-frame-horizontal-1.htm">
<frame id="frame2" name="testlink.htm" scrolling="no">
</frameset>

the dm_initFrame() function call at the end of data.js file will look like:

dm_initFrame("frmSet", 0, 1, 0);


Q: I'm trying to set the frame parameters to frame name body. I have tried seven different text items: body, _body, frame name=body, framename=body, "framename=body", the relative URL, and the exact URL in the titemTarget parameter (common parameters). Nothing seems to work. It always sets the target to a new window. What text do I need to enter for the default parameter to be the body frame target?

Also, is there a way to expand only the menus and not the submenus? There doesn't seem to be a halfway point. Either all the menus are open, or all closed. If I set the default to hidden, it is non-functional. If I set it to expanded, that's not what I'm looking for either.

The menu looks good; other than these two problems it is functioning properly.


A: Please, check the following parameter:

  var titemTarget="framename";

You can also set item target for each item
 ["|Home","testlink.htm", "default.files/icon1_s.gif", "default.files/icon1_so.gif", "", "Home Page Tip", "framename", "", "", ],

Try that.

> Also, is there a way to expand only the menus and not the submenus?
You want to expand only the main items when you load your page?

If it is so you can set expanded items by default.

If you want to expand specific items by default you should set "+"symbol at the beginning of item text.

["+Deluxe Tree: XP Style","", "default.files/xpicon1_s.gif", "", "", "XP Title Tip", "", "0", "", ], // this item is expanded by default
 ["|Home","testlink.htm", "default.files/icon1_s.gif", "default.files/icon1_so.gif", "", "Home Page Tip", "framename", "", "", ],
 ["|Product Info","", "default.files/icon2_s.gif",
"default.files/icon2_so.gif", "", "Product Info Tip", "", "", "", ], // this subitem is not expanded by default


Q: How do I disable the menu link for the page that is currently being displayed? I don’t the menu item removed, I just want the link to be inactive and possibly a different color.


A: To disable items you should set the target parameter to "_".

Unfortunately, Deluxe Menu doesn't have such a feature.
You should write your own code, for example, on PHP.

You can try to use the following function

function disable() {
dm_ext_changeItem(1, 1, 1, ["", "", "", "", "", "_"]);
}
to disable your items.
