Q: I am evaluating your fine menu builder application.

Please let me know the following:

a) How could I call a script instead of specifying a link?

 ["|Product A","http://dhtml-menu.com","","","",,"0",],

b) If the above is possible, please let me know how, in the called script, I could know where the call to the script come from.


A: You can use your own javascript functions in the menu items.

You should paste "javascript:some_function()" into item's link field, for example:

  var menuItems = [
["text", "javascript:your_function(...)", ...]
];


Q: I need to be able to highlight the selected menu en dhtml item of the Deluxe Menu.

A: Deluxe Menu has only two states normal and mouseover.

Try to do the following things:

- delete   var pressedItem=1; parameter from your menu en dhtml 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: Thank you for your prompt replay- the menu now works! However, the multi level dhtml menu takes forever to load up as demonstrated on our website. I was wondering whether there was any possible way of getting it to load up faster.

A: I have noticed no delays in the menu loading.

But your menu is big enough. You can try to us AJAX technology.

Try to set the following parameter also:

  var dm_writeAll=1;



Q: What i am doing is a horizontal menu with submenus opening down vertically. The main menu and sub menu has a background image. These are rather large for a menu and when the sub menu expands i want it to stay below the main menu and not go upwards to cover the main menu when the browser window is too small.


A: Yes, they will stay forcibly below the main menu.

You can use Smart Scrollable Feature. In that case sub menus won't cover
the main menu items. You can see an example here
http://deluxe-menu.com/scrollable-submenus-sample.html

You may specify the exact height for submenus, for example:

  var smHeight="500px";

Use the following parameters to set the direction for submenus:
  var subMenuAlign="left";
  var subMenuVAlign="top";
