Q: I have been using the trial deluxe menu with the deluxe tuner tocreate a menu and have run into a problem.

The menu is based on the following template:

Vista Styles (Part 2) Vista Style 1.

When I saved the menu file to put into an html file I followedthe instructions on the screen to save all the files to the folderwhere I wanted the menu to appear in an html., and then followedthe instructions to paste the menu into the html file where Iwanted the menu to appear.

It is not working. It seems as though something is left out ofthe code, or perhaps not all the necessary files are being copied.The menu appears perfectly in the deluxe tuner preview screen, butnot when I try to save it and use it elsewhere.

I have included all the files, including the instructions thatcame up when I saved the menu, in the attached zip file and wonderif you might take a look at it and tell me what I am doing wrong and/or leaving out.

Can you help?


A: Your menu works fine.
But you should paste
btn_blue2.gif
btn_blue.gif
into "data-NINnew.files" folder.


Q: In the rollover menus, how can I have a heading link to and open another website's home page?

A: 1) You can show the popup window when you hover, click or mouseout on some elements on yourpage. For example you have:

<p><img border="0" src="images/submenu-bg.gif" width="170" height="29" id="open_popup"></p>

So, in Deluxe Tuner you should enter 'open_popup' object ID in the onMouseOver,onClick or onMouseOut fields.

Actually you can assign id to any object on your page:
add id="open_popup" for <a>, <div>, <img> ... tags.

2) Or you can create only one data file and use deluxePopupWindow.open() function to open the popups.

More info about deluxePopupWindow.open() function you can find:
http://deluxepopupwindow.com/window-installation-info.html

function deluxePopupWindow.open("winID", "content", "header", "param", "skin", "contentType")

Use another winID (first parameter) than you have in your data file if you don't want to close 1-st popup window or use thesame winID=win if you want to close 1-st popup.

content - will be the path to the file you want to load in your popup (files/test.html)
skin - is the name of your skin (default in my example)
contentType - set this parameter to iframe.

I call the skin .js file with id='win'.
On the page you should open popup windows with the same id:

<a title="Click to open sample" href="javascript:;" onclick="deluxePopupWindow.open('win', 'files/test.html', 'Window','width=220,height=270,resizable,scrollbars=no,middle,right,fade-effect', 'windowsvista_graphite', 'iframe')">Click to open 1 PopupWindow with 'files/test.html' content.</a>

<a title="Click to open sample" href="javascript:;" onclick="deluxePopupWindow.open('win', 'files/1test.html', 'Window','width=220,height=270,resizable,scrollbars=no,middle,right,fade-effect', 'windowsvista_graphite', 'iframe')">Click to open 2 PopupWindow with 'files/1test.html' content.</a>

<a title="Click to open sample" href="javascript:;" onclick="deluxePopupWindow.open('win', 'files/2test.html', 'Window','width=220,height=270,resizable,scrollbars=no,middle,right,fade-effect', 'windowsvista_graphite', 'iframe')">Click to open 3 PopupWindow with 'files/2test.html' content.</a>

<a title="Click to open sample" href="javascript:;" onclick="deluxePopupWindow.open('win', 'files/3test.html', 'Window','width=220,height=270,resizable,scrollbars=no,middle,right,fade-effect', 'windowsvista_graphite', 'iframe')">Click to open 4 PopupWindow with 'files/3test.html' content.</a>

<a title="Click to open sample" href="javascript:;" onclick="deluxePopupWindow.open('win', 'files/4test.html', 'Window','width=220,height=270,resizable,scrollbars=no,middle,right,fade-effect', 'windowsvista_graphite', 'iframe')">Click to open 5 PopupWindow with 'files/4test.html' content.</a>

<a title="Click to open sample" href="javascript:;" onclick="deluxePopupWindow.open('win', 'files/5test.html', 'Window','width=220,height=270,resizable,scrollbars=no,middle,right,fade-effect', 'windowsvista_graphite', 'iframe')">Click to open 6 PopupWindow with 'files/5test.html' content.</a>

<a title="Click to open sample" href="javascript:;" onclick="deluxePopupWindow.open('win', 'files/6test.html', 'Window','width=220,height=270,resizable,scrollbars=no,middle,right,fade-effect', 'windowsvista_graphite', 'iframe')">Click to open 7 PopupWindow with 'files/6test.html' content.</a>

So, the previous window will be closed and the new one will be opened.If you want to open several windows at once use different id's for each link.



Q: We have a problem with the submenus going cross-frame.
Whenever there is a webpage from another website in the content/target-frame the frameset twists and all the pages are shown in the topframe. A lot of the information on our web is in office word-files and when they are opened in the content/target-frame the same cross-frame-problem happens. Is it only possible for the sub-menus to go cross-frame when one of our own webpages is shown in the target-frame?


A: See more info about cross-frame mode here:
http://deluxe-menu.com/cross-frame-mode-sample.html

Notice, the menu will work correctly in the cross-frame mode if you load pages into the sub frame from the same domain.
If you load pages from another domain submenus won't be shown in the subframe - they will be shown in the frame with the top-menu.
It's caused by a security policy of browsers - a script can't modify a content of pages from another domain.
