Q: I know. I have two menus on the page and I am not using beforeItemImage orafterItemImage for the top menu in javascript (the one you referenced below), but I need it for the second menu. The parameters for that menu are in mainnav_data.js.

Even when I only call dmWorkPath and dmenu.js once, it does not work.

A: See, it is not correctly to use image-based items:

["","", "mainnav_data.files/corpinfo.gif", "mainnav_data.files/corpinfo2.gif", "", "_self", "0", "", "", "", "", ],

and specify beforeItemImage/afterItemImage parameters. They won't work in that case.

You can create such buttons in the following ways:
1) Use image-based menu (images with text).

Create normal and mouse-over state images (with text) for each item:
["","", "mainnav_data.files/corpinfo.gif", "mainnav_data.files/corpinfo2.gif", "", "_self", "", "", "", "", "", ],
["","", "mainnav_data.files/new.gif", "mainnav_data.files/new2.gif", "", "_self", "", "", "", "", "", ],
["","", "mainnav_data.files/xxxxx.gif", "mainnav_data.files/xxxxx2.gif", "", "_self", "", "", "", "", "", ],


2) Use combined background for the menu in javascript items (images without text).

  var beforeItemImage = [,]; //left-side image for normal and mouse over state
  var itemBackImage = [,]; //background or image for normal and mouse over state
  var afterItemImage = [,]; //right-side image for normal and mouse over state
  var beforeItemImageW = '';
  var afterItemImageW = '';
  var beforeItemImageH = '';
  var afterItemImageH ='';

But you should create a small images in any Graph Editor, for example:
button_n_back.gif
button_n_left.gif
button_n_right.gif
button_o_back.gif
button_o_left.gif
button_o_right.gif

You cannot use these two methods together!


Q: Compliments on your product, I particularly enjoy the complete set of gui and java, that allows for the quick changes.

After a couple of months of using the trial, I have now purchased it and installed the license.

My question however regards the performance of the menu. Using firebug I note that my deluxe menu .js are the performance bottlenecks, It appears as if they are not being cached and it appears that collecting them is taking longer then the other .js files. What can I do to optimize the load time of the javascript multi level menu and prevent, reloading it from the server with every page reload. The apache has set the expiry correct I believe, as I understand from the header.

A: You can try to use AJAX technology.

AJAX-like technology: data for submenus can be loaded "on-the-fly" from the server.

New parameter:
  var tajax = 0/1; - disables/enables AJAX-like support

Current syntax for item parameters (  var tmenuItems):
[text, link, iconNormal, iconOver, iconExpanded, tip, target, itemStyleInd, itemXPStyleInd, jsFileName]

Where jsFileName - .js filename on the server with submenu items (  var tmenuItems).



Q: I updated .js files and added   var key to data file.
When I tested there is no nag tag. But the sub-menu no longer worked. (it worked before with "Trail Version" nag).
The status bar on IE shows "Error on page".

I am looking forward to your help.


A: Please, see menu parameters. Now you have:

  var menuBorderWidth="";
  var itemBorderWidth="";

You should write:

  var menuBorderWidth=0;
  var itemBorderWidth=0;


Q: How can I from javascript code change a displayed tab selection to another one in the dynamic menu tabs... lets say from first tab to the third tab?


A: 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 and   var   var bselectedSmItem) 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" and "varbselectedSmItem" parameters
based on your link beforeyou call your data file.

For example, move "bselectedItem" and "  var bselectedSmItem" parametersfrom your data file to your code.

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

You should define seltabs and selsmtabs using server side script.

You can also set it on every page before you call data.js file, forexample:

<TD vAlign=top align=left>
/* Select Tab */
<script type="text/javascript" language="JavaScript1.2">
  var bselectedItem=4;
  var bselectedSmItem=3;
</script>
<SCRIPT src="data.js" type=text/javascript></SCRIPT>
</TD>

Try that.
