Javascript Menu. DHTML Menu.

  • Create contextual menus for your pages. For this purpose you should assign a special function for the object you want. The current coordinates of the mouse pointer or your own ones can be used for the contextual menu.
  • When the submenu is larger than the visible area of the page the submenu will be automatically decreased. To see all the submenu items you do not need to use scrollbars or something like that - just put your mouse to the bottom of a submenu and it will be automatically scrolled! You can also specify height and width for each separate submenu.
  • Build menus completely based on Cascading Style Sheets. It is possible to appoint the individual CSS styles for separate elements of the menu.

Q: How can I vary the width of the individual items on the main bar for the javascript menu?

A: You can use Individual Styles to set the width for the menu items.Please, use Deluxe Tuner to create your individual styles.

You should write for example so:

  var itemStyles = [
["itemWidth=98px"], // style 0
["itemWidth=100px"], // style 1
["itemWidth=110px"], // style 2
["itemWidth=120px"], // style 3
["itemWidth=95px"], // style 4
];

  var menuItems = [
["","", "data.files/products.gif", "data.files/products_mo.gif", "Products", "_self","0" , , , ],

Q: What I try to make is a menu dhtml with items having a border of only 1 px, also between the menu items. However it seems that Deluxe menu draws a 1 px line around every menu item giving an effective border line of 2 px between the area where the items touch each other. I want to have 1 px border also on the areas where the items touch each other.
Any suggestion how to fix this?


A: If you want to have the 1px border between the items only you canuse separators.

Please, see the following parameters:

//--- Separators
  var separatorImage=""; //for subitems
  var separatorWidth="5";
  var separatorHeight="100%";
  var separatorAlignment="right";
  var separatorVImage="images/public/separator.gif"; //for the top items
  var separatorVWidth="1";
  var separatorVHeight="100%";
  var separatorPadding="";

You should set a separator in the menuItems, for example:

  var menuItems = [
["Home","index.cfm", , , , , , , , ],
["-"],
["About Us","about.cfm", , , , , , , , ],

];


Q: Is it possible set a menu item to pressed when a page is loaded when you have multiple drop down menus on the page?  

I have 2 menus side by side and I was able to set the pressed item with the JavaScript API as described in your FAQs but when I try to show an item as pressed  in a second menu on the same page, the corresponding item in the first menu shows as pressed. Is there a different function that I can use for this or a way to reset the menu ID in the second menu to start from where the first menu left off so I can use the same function?

A: See the first parameter in
dm_ext_setPressedItem (menuInd, submenuInd, itemInd, recursion)
function is index of the menu.

So, if you use several menus on the one page you should use differentmenuInd parameter.

For example you have:

<script type="text/javascript" src="menu/data1.js"></script> //menuInd=0
...
<script type="text/javascript" src="menu/data2.js"></script> //menuInd=1
...
<script type="text/javascript" src="menu/data3.js"></script> //menuInd=2
...
<script type="text/javascript" src="menu/data4.js"></script> //menuInd=3

So, for the second menu you should write:

dm_ext_setPressedItem (1, 2, 5)



Q: Can you resize the height of a submenu button to 22px? (The main dhtml pulldown menu should remain the same height).

I am sending you html files. Please checked it out and is it possible in delux menu?

A: Set itemHeight=22px for the styles (dhtml pulldown menu and sub):

  var itemStyles = [
["itemWidth=200px","itemHeight=22px","itemBackImage=left.files/button-gradient.jpg,left.files/button-gradient.jpg", "fontStyle='normal 14px Arial','normal 14px Arial'","fontColor=#ccd0d1,#a3a377","fontDecoration=none,none"],
["itemHeight=22px","itemBackImage=left.files/button-gradient.jpg,left.files/button-gradient.jpg","itemBorderWidth=1", "itemBorderStyle=solid,solid","itemBorderColor=#a3a377,#a3a377","fontStyle='normal 12px Arial','normal 12px Arial'","fontColor=#ccd0d1,#a3a377","fontDecoration=none,none"],
];
