Javascript Menu. DHTML Menu.

  • Submenus can be shown in 4 ways: - From from left to right + upwards and also left to right. - From right to left and also from right to left + upwards (e.g. for right-to-left languages).
  • Use images for icons, backgrounds of submenus and items. Using images you can create menus entirely based on graphics.

Q: I'm using your DHTML menu product.
I've read the parameters but am unable to make the drop down menu links stop spawning a new window on click.
I love the product and want to use it on my web but I've got to make it stop having babies! Have you some advice for me or a FAQ page you can send?


A: You should use the following parameter

  var itemTarget = "_self";

Please, see also individual items targets, for example:

 ["|Features","testlink.html", "default.files/icon2.gif", "default.files/icon2o.gif", , "_blank", , , , ],

Change "_blank" to "" or to "_self".


Q: Is there any way can we display sub level menu items on mouse over of first level menu items using tabs (Text Style Javascript Dhtml Tab / Java Script Tab Script Text Style / Javascript Tab Navigation Text Style / Javascript Tabbed Menus XP Style)


A: Unfortunately, you can do it on mouseover with Deluxe Tabs.
But you can create such menu using Deluxe Menu.


Q: Could you please help me with another question?

I am using your regular dhtml menu inside an asp page.
I want to make a call to different javascripts with parameters from different menu items (Which should work fine.. )

I have now been trying to do this by using the alert() java metod....

This line works perfect:
 ["|Test A","javascript:alert('Test');", "", "", "", "", "0", "-1", "", ],

But if I try to write the same line within ASP brachets ( <% %> ) the menu does not show up:

<%
response.Write( " ['|Test A','javascript:alert('Test');', '', '', '', '', '0', '-1', '', ], " )
%>>

I have also found that if I remove the parameter inside the javascript like this:
<%
response.Write( " ['|Test A','javascript:alert();', '', '', '', '', '0', '-1', '', ], " )
%>>

the menu will show up and the script will work but since I can not insert any parameter it is pointless..

How can I achieve this?

I really hope you can help me with this one!

A: Try to write your code in the following way:

<%
response.Write( " ['|Test A','javascript:alert(\'Test\');', '', '', '', '', '0', '-1', '', ], " )
%>



Q: I am trying to have the selected top item in the pop up menu remain on the mouseover event after it is selected.
It seemed to be working fine when i was just testing with # as a link
but when i actually linked to different pages it returns to normal.
How do i get this to work?

A: You can find more info here:
http://www.deluxe-menu.com/highlighted-items-sample.html

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="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.
