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 cannot see the shadow on the top items of the menu. Can you help me?


A: Now you have shadow the submenus only, if you want to have shadowfor the top items you should set the following parameters:

//--- Transitional Effects & Filters
  var shadowLen=4;
  var shadowColor="#B1B1B1";
  var shadowTop=1;

You can see the shadow in Internet Explorer 5+ only.

Q: Typically in order to generate a menu with multiple layers I’d put a pipe character in front of the menu text..  For example:

 ["|Page Admin","/admin/handoutadmin.php", , , , "_new", , , , ],
     ["||Student Pages","/admin/handoutadmin.php?type=1", , , , "_new", , , , ],
     ["||Teacher Pages","/admin/handoutadmin.php?type=2", , , , "_new", , , , ],
     ["||Family Letters","/admin/handoutadmin.php?type=4", , , , "_new", , , , ],
     ["||Transparencies","/admin/handoutadmin.php?type=3", , , , "_new", , , , ],

  However, when I try to do it with dm_ext_addItem it actually SHOWS the pipe character and doesn’t create any menu levels at all. 
For example:

dm_ext_addItem(0, 0, ["Add a Handout to this Lesson", "", "", "", "", "", ""]);

dm_ext_addItem(0, 0,  ["|Student Page","/admin/handoutadmin.php?type=$type", "", "", "", "_new", ""]);

dm_ext_addItem(0, 0,  ["|Teacher Page","/admin/handoutadmin.php?type=$type", "", "", "", "_new", ""]);

How can I generate multiple levels of the menu with javascript?

A: I suppose that your code is not valid
dm_ext_addItem(0, 0,  ["|Teacher Page", "/admin/handoutadmin.php?type=$type", "", "", "", "_new", ""]);

Try to write it in the following way:
dm_ext_addItem(0, 0,  ["|Teacher Page", "/admin/handoutadmin.php?type=", "", "", "", "_new", ""]);



Q: We are experimenting with your library but can't seem to make it work. I am getting "d_ddm is undefined" in dmenu_popup.js menu script.

Could you tell me what we are doing wrong?

A: You should change

onClick="return dm_popup(1, 500, event);

to

onClick="return dm_popup(0, 500, event);

If you have only one menu on the page your menuInd = 0;


Q: I've looked through the FAQ's till my eyes burned... I know how to collapse/expand all on page load, but can't find an answer to this specific question

I am using tsaveState=1 and tcloseExpanded=1 and that works great when navigating the javascript vertical tree menu. But I'd like to be able to tell the javascript vertical tree menu to collapse all the way on the initial page load, without resetting those first two variables.

for instance;

a user logs on, goes to the order page, uses the menu to navigate and place an order. After the order is processed through a php verification page, the user is directed back to the order page via the php header() function, with the menu still intact, and the values of the order updated.

But once the user navigates away from the order page, and then returns to complete another order, I'd like the menu items to all be collapsed.

If that's not an inherent design of your menu program, is there a variable that I can pass with the initial load that will cause a full collapse?

A: No, unfortunately there is no such parameter in Deluxe Tree.

But you can try to delete
  var tsaveState=1;
parameter from your data file and add it on your html page directly.

So, on your initial page you can set:
  var tsaveState=0;

and on other pages you should set:
  var tsaveState=1;
