Javascript Menu. DHTML Menu.

  • There can be multi level menus - create as many rows or columns of the menu as you want.
  • Use a mouse to drag a menu as a usual window. Also you can construct the menu where each submenu can be "detached" from the main menu (MSOfficeToolbarLike mode).
  • When the page is scrolled the menu remains visible. The DHTML menu can "float" along one or two coordinate axes.

Q: There is a grey line that surrounds my menu (its on a page with black background. How do I get rid of the grey line?


A: See, you set the shadow for the top items and submenus

  var shadowLen=2;
  var shadowColor="#C4C4C4";
  var shadowTop=1;

You should set

  var shadowLen=0;
  var shadowColor="#C4C4C4";
  var shadowTop=0;


Q: Thank you for such an excellent product. I have a question pertaining to the submenu items in your tree-menu line. My menus are 540px wide and contain lots of text with good sized pictures (icons). Can I use an iframe tag inside of the css menu submenu instead of simple text with this icon?

A: You are able to paste any html code within items.
So you can paste a form too.

For example:

  var menuItems = [
...
   ["||<nobr><FORM method=GET action='http://www.google.com/custom'><input name='as_q' value='search
the web' size=15 style='font-size:10'> <INPUT type=hidden name=cof

Q: I am interested in Deluxe Tabs MAC Style.
However before I do I want to make sure that:

- I can change the buttons pictures on both the first row and the second row. There has to be a <img src=" " > tag in the code somewhere, correct?


- I can expand or diminish the number of buttons and links


- Also, I have a question: if I am on "Mac Tab 1" menu, and I click on "Mac Tab 2" menu without clicking on any of the links onthe second row, what is the page that I see? Do I see by default Link 2_1 or do I see some kind of generic page? In other words is there a "main" page for each tab menu and then you have the other pages which correspond to Link 2_1, Link 2_2, etc.?

- Is it possible to remember a visited sub-menu? For example I am on "Mac Tab 2/Link 2_3" and I go to "Mac Tab 4/Link 4_2" and then I come back to "Mac Tab 2". Can the main page for this "Mac Tab 2" be Link 2_3 which was my last visited link on that tab?


A: 1) No, there is no such tag - <img src=" " >

For the main items you should set such parameters:
bbeforeItemImage - left part of the item
bafterItemImage - right part of the item
bitemBackImage - center part of the item

in normal, mouseover and selected states.

And for the subitems (in MAC template) you should set onlybitemBackImage - the center part of the item.

Please, see the code of this template.

2) You can create any number of the buttons and links.

3) You can set links for main items and for the subitems.
For example:

  var bmenuItems =
[
["Mac Tab 1","http://deluxe-menu.com",,,,,,],
 ["|Link 1_1","http://apycom.com",,,,,,"0"],
 ["|Link 1_2","testlink.htm",,,,,,"0"],
 ["|Link 1_3","testlink.htm",,,,,,"0"],

So, if you click on "Mac Tab 1" you will go to http://deluxe-menu.com
And if you write so
["Mac Tab 1","",,,,,,],
no page will open.

4) This Tab menu can save pressed item automatically within1 page only. If you open another page, the menu can't remember presseditem. You should do that manually using Javascript and menu parameters(  var bselectedItem,   var bselectedSmItem) or using any server-sidescript (php, asp, etc.)


Q: Do you have any working examples of a menu generated using .php from a MySQL database?

Our website is dynamic from a MySQL db and we already have categories and sub-categories. It would be useful if we could use this with our deluxe menu.

I don't know how to set this up, so any assistance would be appreciated.


A: You may generate a menu from a database or XML using any server-side script, e.g., PHP, ASP, VB, etc.
However, these scripts don't work inside of Javascript .js files, so, you should move parameters of a menu from a .js file into an html-page, e.g.:

<!-- Deluxe Menu -->
<noscript><a href="http://deluxe-menu.com">Javascript Menu by Deluxe-Menu.com</a></noscript>
<script type="text/javascript">  var dmWorkPath = "menudir/";</script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="menudir/dmenu.js"></script>
<!-- (c) 2006, http://deluxe-menu.com -->

<script type="text/javascript" language="JavaScript1.2">
// and describe parameters of a menu
  var parameter1=value1;
  var parameter2=value2;
etc.

  var menuItems = [
// here you generate items using server-side scripts (php, asp, vb, etc.)
];</script>

The example of the menu working with PHP/MYSQL you can find here:
