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: I am now running the newest version, all ok. A new client wants to have submenus openFor the left hand menu navigation that I purchased, can I choose what dhtml tree menus will be expanded or collapsed when the user first comes to the webpage for the first time?

For instance, right now, when the user first goes to the page ALL of the menus are collapsed. If I wanted the first and third tree menus to be expanded and the others to stay collapsed when a new user first went to the page, how would I accomplish that?

Thank you very much for your help. on mouse rollover as well as on mouse click. Is this possible with tree menu in XP style?

A: You can expand some items by default.
Add '+' sign before items text in that case:

["+Deluxe Tree: XP Style","", "deluxe-tree.files/xpicon1_s.gif", "", "", "XP Title Tip", "", "0", "", "", ],
 ["|Home","testlink.htm", "deluxe-tree.files/icon1_s.gif", "deluxe-tree.files/icon1_so.gif", "", "Home Page Tip", "", "", "", "data-new.js", ],

"Deluxe Tree: XP Style" item will be expanded by default in that case.

Use   var texpanded=1; parameter to expand all menu items by default.

Use function dtreet_ext_expandItem (itemID, expand) API function to expand the specificmenu items dynamically:

Q: We are testing you menu in our application. It is being used in cross frame mode. It works very nicely except a couple issues.

The main one is after loading a new page in the sub menus window when I go back to the main menu to select another option but on the initial mouse over it takes several seconds for the menu to come up. Once the delay of loading the initial submenu is over it loads all others very quickly until a new page is loaded again. Is there a way to optimize the menu to reduce this load time? I have already set dm_writeAll=0 but that only increased the speed of the initial display of the main menu.

And the other question is does the dmObjectsCheck option work in cross frame mode? I have it set =1 and the submenus still underneath objects (such as select list) which have a higher z order.


A: Try to do the following:
move all <script> calls into <head>, but delete dm_initFrame()function from data .js file -- move them instead of files calls, i.e.:

<head>
<script src=data.js>
...

</head>

...

<div><script>dm_initFrame("frmSet", 1, 2, 1); </script></div>

It this case data will be loaded when <head> will load, but after thatmenus must be shown quickly.
Let me know about results.

Deluxe Menu overlap select objects in cross-frame mode.


Q: Looking at the tab menu code below, am I right in guessing what the first 6 parameters are, and can you tell me what the last 3 are forplease?

  var bmenuItems = [

["-","", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", ],

["Title","...link.asp", "iconNormal", "iconMouseOver","iconSelected", "tootip", "?", "?", "?", ],

["-","", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", ],
];


A:   var bmenuItems = [

[item_text, object_to_show, normal_icon, mouseover_icon, selected_icon, tooltip, item_style],

[item_text, object_to_show, normal_icon, mouseover_icon, selected_icon, tooltip, item_style],
...
];

so it's a item_style, the last two are reserved and not used.
