Recent Questions

Q: When I maximize the screen the popup windows appear to open below taskbar.
Is there a setting to correct this so that windows always appear above the cascading navigation bar?

A: You should set the following parameter to show submenus above the top items:

  var subMenuVAlign="bottom";

But notice that if there will be no enough space above the menu your submenus will be
shown under the menu.

Q: Hi - I'm using Deluxe Tuner/Menu version 2.0 and wanted to know if it's possible to set the status bar messages to something other than the link text from the menu items that it currently picks up?

A: You should set parameter:

Text in a browser's status bar when you put a pointer over an item. Values:
"link" - show item link;
"text" - show item text;
"tip" - show item tip.
With another value shows specified value.

Info about this parameter you can find here

Q: One other question, how do you get the menu bar to highlight and stay on the page you are viewing rather than highlighting home the whole time.

A: You should 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: From your website, I see that you are able to populate a menu through ASP/VB, but I have not been able to figure out how this is done.
How exactly do you use an ASP script to generate the menu items for the dynamic menu?

A: You may generate a menu from a database or XML using any server-side script, e.g., PHP, ASP, VB, etc.
However, these scripts don't work inside of Javascript .js files, so, you should move parameters of a menu from a .js file into an html-page, e.g.:

<!-- Deluxe Menu -->
<noscript><a href="">Javascript Menu by</a></noscript>
<script type="text/javascript">  var dmWorkPath = "menudir/";</script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="menudir/dmenu.js"></script>
<!-- (c) 2006, -->

<script type="text/javascript" language="JavaScript1.2">
// and describe parameters of a menu
  var parameter1=value1;
  var parameter2=value2;

  var menuItems = [
// here you generate items using server-side scripts (php, asp, vb, etc.)

Unfortunately we don't have examples with ASP and SQL.
The example of the menu working with PHP/MYSQL you can find here:
