  var itemStyles = [
["itemWidth=150"], //style 0
];

Q: Everything will go fine during setup, until I get further into it, I will get an error. It says error on a line of text that isnt even there. The line of text does not exists. Please let me know how I can correct this issue and get the program running right.

A: See, it is not correct to write " symbols within menuItems:

   ["||A23 (3" DIAM)","http://www.interlight.biz/products.int?Category=INCANDESCENT&Subcat=A+SHAPE&Dept=A23+%283%22+DIAM%29",

Try to write your last items in the following way:
   ["||A15 (2" DIAM)","http://www.interlight.biz/products.int?Category=INCANDESCENT&Subcat=A+SHAPE&Dept=A15+%282%22+DIAM%29", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", ],

Q: You've been helping me with some issues on the Deluxe Tree Menu system my company has purchased and most issues are resolved, so thank you! One big problem remains though and we can't seem to figure it out, so I hope you can help.

What we want is, when a user enters our site from the index (home) page then clicks on a link and the sub-page opens, for the dhtml menu tree to be open to the section the user is in and viewing. We also DO NOT want the browser to save the state of the menu, since that is inconsistent with where the user is in the site. Note: we do not use the Menu on the home page, is this a problem?

Per your tech support email, I've added the expand code, which works going from the home page to sub-pages. However, it interferes with navigating to other sub-pages once your in the site. The menu doesn't keep the section open, it closes back up. You mentioned the expand code has to be entered on every page....is that so in this instance and if so, that's a maintenance nightmare - does a better way exist for this type of menu?

Then we activated the "save state" option and the menu stays open on the sub-pages, but the expand option doesn't work.
It's like they cancel each other out and you can only have one or the other.

Can I get these two to work together? What do I need to do? Is it better to use the XP-style menu?

A: When user clicks the link, the browser loads a new page and the script re-create the dhtml menu tree.
If you want to open the needed section automatically on load you can use the following:

1. Save the state to cookies
2. Use frames
3. Put the special script on each page of site that will open appropriate section.

Q: The problem that I am still experiencing (Im sure I have missed something obvious!) - is that all the pages open when you click on the relevant links but they always open with the "About Us" tab showing and then as soon as you click on a different tab you see it highlight for a second and then it just reverts back to the About Us tab even though the page has changed. As the site opens I obviously want the first tab to be highlighted as opposed to the 2nd one and the each page highlights and holds as you go through the menu.


A: See, you set
  var bselectedItem=2;

That is why "About us" tab is selected.
You should change the selected tab depending on the page you are now.

This Tabs menu can save pressed item automatically within1 page only. If you open another page, the menu can't remember presseditem. You should do that manually using Javascript and menu parameters(  var bselectedItem) or using any server-side script (php, asp, etc.)

Deluxe Tabs doesn't support API functions which can return theselected tab.

If your site is written on PHP you can set "bselectedItem" parameter based on your link beforeyou call tabs-kasper.js file.

For example, move "bselectedItem" parameter from tabs-kasper.js file to yourcode.

<TD vAlign=top align=left>
/* Select Tab */
<script type="text/javascript" language="JavaScript1.2">
  var bselectedItem=<?php echo $seltabs; ?>;
</script>
<SCRIPT src="tabs-kasper.js" type=text/javascript></SCRIPT>
</TD>

You should define seltabs using server side script.

You can also set on every page before you call tabs-kasper.js file(for example, for solution tab).

<TD vAlign=top align=left>
/* Select Tab */
<script type="text/javascript" language="JavaScript1.2">
  var bselectedItem=4;
</script>
<SCRIPT src="tabs-kasper.js" type=text/javascript></SCRIPT>
</TD>

Try that.
