  • Use a mouse to move a menu as a usual window. Also you can create the menu where each submenu can be "separated" from the menu (MS Office toolbar-like mode).
  • When the page is scrolled the menu remains visible. The menu can "float" along one or two coordinate axes.
  • There can be multilevel menus - create as many rows of the menu as necessary. Any submenu in its turn can include different number of columns.

Q: However, when I place it inside a CSS-defined div element (for absolute page placement) the submenu's all drop down a couple hundred pixels.

A: See, the problem is that the script can't get css properties of the object if they are described in separate .css block (or file).In other words, you can't get the value of "POSITION: absolute" attribute of the object if the object doesn't have this property within inline style (style="POSITION:absolute;"). To get the value you should move .css style into style="" attribute.

Please, try to add your
css file -> inline css, for example:

You should add style="POSITION: absolute;"

to the

<div id="menu">

So, you'll have:

<DIV id="menu" style="POSITION: absolute;">
Try that.

Q: The trees I'll be building can be very large and will need to be demand loaded. In other words, I need to add the children *after* the user clicks on the parent.

A: No, unfortunately it is not possible in Deluxe Tree. Deluxe Treedoesn't have AJAX feature like Deluxe Menu.

Q: What do you recommend for "remembering" the tab in the js tab menu,
so that when the page reloads the correct tab is highlighted.

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

You can set "bselectedItem" and "  var bselectedSmItem" parametersbased on your link before you call your data file.

For example, move "  var 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=^lt;?php echo $selsmtabs; ?>;
<SCRIPT src="data.js" type=text/javascript></SCRIPT>

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 src="data.js" type=text/javascript></SCRIPT>

Q: Hi there, hope someone could help me out.

We have recently purchased your menu product, and I would like to know how I indicate on a javascript slide menu, the root node that was selected. So in other words, if I have a horizontal navigation and I select the 3rd index along the menu and select something from this, how can I make the 3rd index highlighted?

I am not sure how else to phrase this question and hope this makes sense. You help will be appreciated.

A: You can find more info here:

Deluxe Menu has only two states normal and mouseover.

Try to do the following things:

- delete   var pressedItem=1; parameter from your data file
- set correct parameter on each page before you call data file, forexample:

<noscript><a href="">Javascript Slide Menu by</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.
