Q: How do I add content to each tab in the hover tab menu so that the content will appear on this same page
(as opposed to having to move to another page)?

A: You should paste your content in the <div> ..
tags.

<div id="content1" style=" visibility: hidden;" class="tabPage">
<p align=center><img src="img/logo_DM.gif" width=262 height=56 alt="Deluxe-Menu.com"></p>
</div>

<div id="content2" style="visibility: hidden;" class="tabPage">
<p align=center><img src="img/logo_DT.gif" width=262 height=56 alt="Deluxe-Tree.com"></p>
</div>

<div id="content3" style=" visibility: hidden;" class="tabPage">
<p align=center><img src="img/logo_DTabs.gif" width=254 height=58 alt="Deluxe-Tabs.com"></p>
</div>

See in Deluxe Tabs there are two modes:

1.   var tabMode=0;
You can create only one level of tabs and assign Object Id's of the
DIV's to show when you click on the tab.

["XP Tab 1","content1", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", ],
["XP Tab 2","content2", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", ],
["XP Tab 3","content3", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", ],
["XP Tab 4","content4", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", ],

2.   var tabMode=1;
You can assign only links in this mode.
You should create top level items with subitems.

["XP Tab 1","", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", ],
 ["|Link 1_1","http://deluxe-tabs.com", "", "", "", "", "0", "", "", ],
 ["|Link 1_2","testlink.htm", "", "", "", "", "0", "", "", ],
 ["|Link 1_3","testlink.htm", "", "", "", "", "0", "", "", ],
 ["|Link 1_4","testlink.htm", "", "", "", "", "0", "", "", ],
 ["|Link 1_5","testlink.htm", "", "", "", "", "0", "", "", ],
["XP Tab 2","", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", ],
 ["|Link 2_1","testlink.htm", "", "", "", "", "0", "", "", ],
 ["|Link 2_2","testlink.htm", "", "", "", "", "0", "", "", ],
 ["|Link 2_3","testlink.htm", "", "", "", "", "0", "", "", ],
 ["|Link 2_4","testlink.htm", "", "", "", "", "0", "", "", ],
 ["|Link 2_5","testlink.htm", "", "", "", "", "0", "", "", ],
["XP Tab 3","", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", ],
 ["|Link 3_1","testlink.htm", "", "", "", "", "0", "", "", ],
 ["|Link 3_2","testlink.htm", "", "", "", "", "0", "", "", ],
 ["|Link 3_3","testlink.htm", "", "", "", "", "0", "", "", ],
 ["|Link 3_4","testlink.htm", "", "", "", "", "0", "", "", ],
 ["|Link 3_5","testlink.htm", "", "", "", "", "0", "", "", ],

You can use Object ID as well as Link in both modes. Use the following prefixes within item's link field:
"object:" - means that there is object id after it;
"link:" - means that there is a link after it.
"javascript:" - means that there is a javascript code after it, for example:javascript:alert(\'Hello!\')

So, you should write for example:

 ["|Link 1_1","object:Content1_1", "", "", "", "", "0", "", "", ],




Q: I was wondering how do I add more then five items on the top javascript toggle menu rather then using a sub menu.

A: Actually you can add as many top items as you want.

Use Deluxe Tuner to add more items or add them in your data filemanually, for example:

  var menuItems = [

["Item 1","whatsnew.htm", "Buttons/whatsnewup.jpg", "Buttons/whatsnewover.jpg", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", ],
["Item 2","test.htm", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", ],
["Item 3","index.htm", "Buttons/homeup.jpg", "Buttons/homeover.jpg", "", "_parent", "", "", "", "", "", ],
["Item 4","about.htm", "Buttons/aboutup.jpg", "Buttons/aboutover.jpg", "", "_parent", "", "", "", "", "", ],
["Item 5","commserv.htm", "buttons/commservup.jpg", "buttons/commservover.jpg", "", "_parent", "", "", "", "", "", ],
["Item 6","conference.htm", "buttons/conferenceup.jpg", "buttons/conferenceover.jpg", "", "_parent", "", "", "", "", "", ],
["Item 7","lodges.htm", "buttons/districtsup.jpg", "", "", "_parent", "", "", "", "", "", ],


Q: Our company bought the deluxemenu bundle about one year ago.

We were wondering is there any api for the deluxmenu js tabs available?

We would need to programatically open a particular tab.

A: No, unfortunately Deluxe Tabs doesn't support API functions now.

You can use the following function to open specific tab:
dtabs_itemClick(menuInd,itemInd);
where
menuInd - index of a tab menu on a page, >= 0.
itemInd - index of a item, >=0.

For example:

<DIV onClick="dtabs_itemClick(0,2)" style="width: 200px; border: 2px solid #000;">Click to open the third tab</DIV>


Q: Will all your navigation bar examples work cross-frame?

A: See how should you create cross frame menu:

1. To initialize the cross frame menu call dm_initFrame()
function instead of standard dm_init() function within data.js file:

dm_initFrame(framesetID, mainFrameInd, subFrameInd, orientation);

framesetID - id attribute of the frameset;
mainFrameInd - index of the main frame (where the top-menu is placed), >=0;
subFrameInd - index of the subframe (where the submenus will be shown), >=0;
orientation - frame orientaion: 0 - top-to-bottom, 1 - left-to-right; 2 - bottom-to-top; 3 - right-to-left.

So you should create your menu in Deluxe Tuner, save it.
Create html file with your frame set.

Set ID for the first frameset:
<FRAMESET id=frmSet rows=220,*>
<FRAME id=frame1 src="Deluxe Menu Samples_files/cross-frame-horizontal-1.htm"> //menu frame
<FRAME id=frame2 name=frame2 src="Deluxe Menu Samples_files/testlink.htm"> //content frame
</FRAMESET>

Then you should open your data file in any text editor and change
dm_init(); for example to dm_initFrame("frmSet", 0, 1, 0);
