Javascript Menu. DHTML Menu.

  • Tune menu parameters manually or using Deluxe Tuner. Then add several rows of a code within html page - your menu is ready!
  • Use special JavaScript functions for: Dynamic changing of items (text, link, icons and even individual style!). Making a menu item active/inactive. Addition/removing of items. Changing of visibility of items. Getting the information on any menu, submenu and items. Other tricks.
  • Opportunity to control the menu from the keyboard.
  • Cross-frame mode allows you to build full-featured menus on the pages that use frame-based structure. But for all that it's not necessary to insert any additional code into all the pages - just specify some additional parameters of the menu.

Q: How does one go about changing the parameter or the menu in java script so that a menu selection stays 'on'?
In other words, the menu remains selected, perhaps in a background color that shows the user this menu choice is selected and the user is in the selected menu area.


A: To save your navigation path you should set the following parameter:

  var saveNavigationPath = 1;
The menu keeps items highlighted during menu navigation.
0 - disabled, 1 - enabled (default).

You can highlight menu items by default in two ways:

1) Set the pressed item on each page idividually using the following parameter:

  var pressedItem = -2;
The toggle mode. Sets an index of an item that will be highlighted by default.
-2 - the toggle mode is disabled;
-1 - the toggle mode is enabled, but no items highlighted by default;0,1,2,3,... - index of highlighted item in a top-level menu.
- delete   var pressedItem=1; parameter from your data file
- set correct parameter on each page before you call data file, for example:

<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>
<script type="text/javascript">  var pressedItem=2;</script>
...
<script type="text/javascript" src="menudir/data.js"></script>

2) Set the pressed item/subitem using dm_ext_setPressedItem () function.

Q: I use your licensed deluxe menu and I got a customer specific issue:

Is it possible to set no background color for the menus first level and a background color for all submenus?

I couldn't find a parameter to set different variables for main level and sublevels...

Thank you for your feedback

A: You should use Individual Styles for your subitems.

  var menuBackColor="";
  var itemBackColor=["",""];

  var itemStyles = [
["itemBackColor=#81BEC9,#CCE6EA"], //style0
];
["Home","testlink.html", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", ],
["Product Info","", "default.files/icon1.gif", "default.files/icon1o.gif", "", "", "", "", "", ],
 ["|Features","testlink.html", "default.files/icon2.gif", "default.files/icon2o.gif", "", "", "0", "", "", ], //style
 ["|Installation","", "default.files/icon2.gif", "default.files/icon2o.gif", "", "", "0", "", "", ],//style0
   ["||Description of Files","testlink.html", "default.files/icon6.gif", "default.files/icon6o.gif", "", "", "", "", "", ],

Q: I have managed to insert a separator in a menu and set the image path but the separator image does not show.

Is there anything else I need to do?


A: Please, see the following parameters:

//------- Separators -------
//--- Separators
  var separatorImage="";
  var separatorWidth="5";
  var separatorHeight="100%";
  var separatorAlignment="right";
  var separatorVImage="images/public/separator.gif";
  var separatorVWidth="3";
  var separatorVHeight="100%";
  var separatorPadding="";

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

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

];
Try that.


Q: When doing a multi-frame frameset (1 top frame, 2 bottom frames) like this:

<frameset ID="frames" ONLOAD="getBottom()" ROWS="50, *" BORDER="0" FRAMEBORDER="no" FRAMESPACING="0">
   <frame NAME="frmTop" SRC="top.htm" MARGINHEIGHT=0 MARGINWIDTH=0 SCROLLING=NO NORESIZE FRAMEBORDER="0" />
    <frameset ID="bottomFrames" cols="171,*">
     <frame name="frmLeft" src="left.htm" MARGINHEIGHT=0 MARGINWIDTH=0 SCROLLING=NO NORESIZE FRAMEBORDER="0"/>
     <frame name="frmMain" MARGINHEIGHT=0 MARGINWIDTH=0 SCROLLING=NO NORESIZEFRAMEBORDER="0" />
    </frameset>
</frameset>


And using the dm_frameinit like this:
dm_initFrame("[object]", 0, 2, 0);

it works fine in IE -> the menus are displayed exactly under the text and in the bottom right frame.

However, in Firefox, the menu drop down is displayed to the right of the top menu text, and exactly the number of pixels as the width of the left frame.

Perhaps there needs to be some FireFox checking to fix this?
Can you help me with that?


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.
