Javascript Menu. DHTML Menu.

  • Setup menu parameters manually or using De Luxe Tuner. Then add some rows of a code within html page code and your menu is ready!
  • Use special Java Script methods for: Dynamic changing of items (link, text, icons, arrows and even individual style!). Addition/removing of items or submenus. Disabling and enabling menu items. Getting the info on every submenu, menu, and items. Changing appearance of items. Other coding tricks.
  • Cross-frame mode lets you to construct full-featured dhtml menus on the pages with frames. But for all that frame set it's not necessary to insert any additional code into all the pages - just specify several extra menu parameters.
  • Ability to handle the menu from the keyboard via keystrokes.

Q: When I stay on one page (for example "Home") аlso must have the menu-point "home" another color or font. How can I make this?


A: You should set pressed item.
Please, check the following parameter

  var pressedItem=-2;
This parameter sets an index of an item that will be highlighted by default.
-2 - the toggle mode is disabled;
-1 - the toggle mode is enabled, but no items highlighted by default;
0,1,2,3,... - index of highlighted item in a top-menu.

Deluxe Menu v2.4 has only two states normal and mouseover. Now we'repreparing new version of Deluxe Menu. It saves it state after thereloading of the page. We're planing to release a new version during a month.

You can 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.
You can also set the correct
  var pressedItem=1;
parameter on each html page.


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: Can I add the value of the parameter to the link where I want my application to go when I active a submenu in the menu script?

A: Actually you can add php code inside menu links.

If you define your parameter in .js file you should write yourlinks in the following way, for example:

<?
....
$key = 123456;
....
?>
["Home","www.domain.com/home.php?key=<? echo $key ?>", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", ],

If you define your key parameter in the php file you should move your
menuItems into your php page directly:

<?
....
$key = 123456;
....
?>

<script type="text/javascript">
  var tmenuItems = [
['Deluxe Menu','http://deluxe-menu.com','icon.gif',,,,,],
['Deluxe Tree','http://deluxe-tree.com','icon.gif',,'New!',,,],
['Deluxe Tabs','http://deluxe-tabs.com','icon.gif',,'New!',,,],
["Home","www.domain.com/home.php?key=<? echo $key ?>", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", ],
];

dm_init();
</script>



Q: Can you explain website drop down menu creation and implement in html files?

A: Unfortunately we don't have step by step tutorial yet.
We'll try to create it in the nearest time.

1. Create your menu in Deluxe Tuner.

When you open Deluxe Tuner you can click "File/New" and add items and subitems
using buttons "Add Item" and "Add Subitem" on the main window.
You should set items and subitems parameters on the "Item Parameters" window.
See also other parameters for the menu on the main window.

More info about menu parameters you can find on our site
http://deluxe-menu.com/parameters-info.html
http://deluxe-menu.com/menu-items-info.html

You can also use Individual Styles for items and subitems
http://deluxe-menu.com/individual-item-styles-info.html
http://deluxe-menu.com/individual-submenu-styles-info.html

2. You should install the menu on your page.
You can click, for example, File/Export to HTML.

So, you'll have folder with all engine files and images
("deluxe-menu.files/" folder by default), deluxe-menu.html file and
data-deluxe-menu.js file with all menu parameters.

Open deluxe-menu.html file in any text editor and copy several rows of
code into your page (for example index.html page of your website).

Copy and paste several rows into your html page (index.html).

<head>
...
<!-- Deluxe Menu -->
<noscript><a href="http://deluxe-menu.com">Javascript Menu by Deluxe-Menu.com</a></noscript>
<script type="text/javascript" src="deluxe-menu.files/dmenu.js"></script>
...
</head>

<body>
...
<table>
<tr><td><script type="text/javascript" src="deluxe-menu.files/data-deluxe-menu.js"></script></td></tr> //data-deluxe-menu.js - data file createdin Deluxe Tuner.
</table>
...
</body>

You should also copy "deluxe-menu.files/" folder with all engine files
dmenu.js
dmenu_add.js
dmenu_dyn.js
dmenu_key.js
dmenu_cf.js
dmenu_popup.js
dmenu_ajax.js
dmenu_search.js
and data-deluxe-menu.js file into the same folder with your index.html page.

Try that.
