Javascript Menu. DHTML Menu.

  • Use a mouse to move a menu as a usual window. Also you can create the menu where each submenu can be "separated" from the menu (MS Office toolbar-like mode).
  • When the page is scrolled the menu remains visible. The menu can "float" along one or two coordinate axes.
  • There can be multilevel menus - create as many rows of the menu as necessary. Any submenu in its turn can include different number of columns.

Q: I am interested in your dhtml menu product, I did not see any examples using a target attribute for the url, i.e.
<a href=http://yoursite.com/ target-"_blank">
Also if this is supported if you could send me an example of how to configure this...


A: You should use the following parameter
  var itemTarget = "_self";

Please, see also individual items targets, for example:
 ["|Features","testlink.html", "default.files/icon2.gif", "default.files/icon2o.gif", , "_blank", , , , ],
Change "_blank" to "" or to "_self".


Q: Sorry to bother you again, but we've done everything suggested in your fix regarding flash obscuring the multiple drop down menu, but we're still having the same problem in Firefox.

We've - set the parameter in the data file to -   var dmObjectsCheck=1;

We've added the following to the start of the data file -

function dm_ext_ruleObjectHide()
{
return false;
}

We've embeded the flash as suggested to -

<object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000"
codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,0,0"
height="150" width="732" name="if-header">
<param name="movie" value="images/flash/if-header.swf">
<param name="quality" value="best">
<param name="play" value="true">
<param name="wmode" value="opaque">
<embed height="150" name="if-header"
pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer"
src="images/flash/if-header.swf"
type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="732" quality="best"
wmode="opaque" play="true">
</object>

But still our multiple drop down menu sits behind the flash. Are we missing something else?

A: See it is necessary to have opaque parameters in <object> and <embed>tags to display submenus correctly in Firefox.

So, you should open .js file for your flash and find "embed" and"object" words.
And add opaque parameters, for example:

swfNode = '<embed type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="opaque" src="'+ this.getAttribute('swf') +'" width="'+ this.getAttribute('width') +'" height="'+ this.getAttribute('height') +'"';
swfNode += ' id="'+ this.getAttribute('id') +'" name="'+ this.getAttribute('id') +'" ';
  var params = this.getParams();
for(  var key in params){ swfNode += [key] +'="'+ params[key] +'" '; }
  var pairs = this.getVariablePairs().join("&");
if (pairs.length > 0){ swfNode += 'flashvars="'+ pairs +'"'; }
swfNode += '/>';
} else { // PC IE
if (this.getAttribute("doExpressInstall")) {
this.addVariable("MMplayerType", "ActiveX");
this.setAttribute('swf', this.xiSWFPath);
}
swfNode = '<object id="'+ this.getAttribute('id') +'" classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" width="'+ this.getAttribute('width') +'" height="'+ this.getAttribute('height') + '">';
swfNode += '<param name="movie" value="'+ this.getAttribute('swf') +'" /> <param name="wmode" value="opaque"> ';
  var params = this.getParams();
for(  var key in params) {
swfNode += '<param name="'+ key +'" value="'+ params[key] +'" />';
}



Q: I’m interested in buying your products.
I have no experience in programming, only know html/php.
How easy would it be to set up these mouseover menus?
I understand your explanation of copying scripts into the relevant html pages.
But what about inserting the menus? Do I have to program them myself?


A: Unfortunately we don't have step by step tutorial now. We'll try tocreate it in the nearest time.

1. Create your menu in Deluxe Tuner application.
You can create any menu as you like in Deluxe Tuner.

You can use ready to use templates. You can find them in the templateswindow.

When you open Deluxe Tuner ( Deluxe Menu ) you can click "File/New"
and add items and subitems using buttons "Add Item" and "Add Subitem" onthe main window.

You should set items and subitems parameters on the "Item Parameters"window.
See also other parameters for the menu on the main window.

More info about menu parameters you can find on our site
(you can alsouse local version of the site which you can find in the trial package
"Deluxe Menu / deluxe-menu.com /")

http://deluxe-menu.com/parameters-info.html
http://deluxe-menu.com/menu-items-info.html

You can also use Individual Styles for items and subitems:

http://deluxe-menu.com/individual-item-styles-info.html
http://deluxe-menu.com/individual-submenu-styles-info.html

2. You should install the menu on your page.
You can click, for example, File/Export to HTML (you can't do it inthe MAC version).

Add several rows into your html page.

<head>
...
<!-- Deluxe Menu -->
<noscript><a href="http://deluxe-menu.com">Javascript Menu by Deluxe-Menu.com</a></noscript>
<script type="text/javascript">  var dmWorkPath="deluxe-menu.files/";</script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="deluxe-menu.files/dmenu.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="data-deluxe-menu.js"></script>
//data-deluxe-menu.js - data file created in Deluxe Tuner.
...
</head>

<body>
...
<table>
<tr><td>
<script type="text/javascript" src="deluxe-menu.files/data.js"></script>
</td></tr>
</table>
...
</body>

You should also copy all engine files:
dmenu.js
dmenu4.js
dmenu_add.js
dmenu_dyn.js
dmenu_key.js
dmenu_cf.js
dmenu_popup.js
dmenu_ajax.js
dmenu_search.js
into "deluxe-menu.files/" folder.
You should place this folder in thesame folder with your index. html page.

Try that.


Q: I got the menu to display across frames, but it displays differently in Firefox & Mozillavs. Internet Explorer. Is that to be expected?

In The Mozilla-based browsers, the submenu butts right upunder the main menu – which is how I want it. In IE, it is about 10 pixels below.

Also, I can’t get the submenus to drop down directly under the main menus – they are offset by about 100 pixels to the right.

A: The problem is in a structure of your frameset.
Mozilla browsers can't determine absolute coordinates for a frame, sosubmenus drop down with an offset.

You should create the following frameset structure:

--|------------
   | menu
--|------------
   |
   | submenus
   |

Now a top row has 2 columns and all browsers can determine awidth of the 1st column in the second row.
