Javascript Menu. DHTML Menu.

  • Submenus drop down over all the objects of the page (select, flash, object, embed, applet). If for some reasons a submenu can't drop down over an object, the latter will be hidden for a time when the submenu is shown.
  • These effects will make your menu more attractive and stylish. You can cast a shadow on the menu and submenus, set transparency. Among available transitional effects there are such as fade, mosaic, random dissolve, slide out and many others.
  • Create individual styles and assign them to any submenu and item. Use individual styles to achieve stunning effects!

Recent Questions

Q: I have implemented a deluxe-menu on my client's website and I had a couple of questions.

1. Can I control how fast the submenus scroll in my javascript menu examples? If you look at the site and hover over Need An Expert? on the menu and then point to Practice Areas, this submenu seems to scroll slower than if you mouse over "Technology" and scroll that submenu. The Technology submenu scrolls a lot faster. Is it because there are many more items in the Technology submenu? I tried to find a setting for "scroll speed" or the like, but I couldn't find it.

2. In internet explorer, when you mouse over Need An Expert?, Technology the first time you go to the page, there is a 3-4 second delay before the submenu opens. There are a lot of submenu items under Technology, but in Firefox, there doesn't seem to be this delay. Do you know why this would happen in IE? Is there a way to fix it? Could the problem be that each submenu item has a background graphic and this is causing the delay?

3. When you get to a page on the site and you rollover the top level menu, there is also a delay before the background image of the menu items shows up. You get a solid blue background color for a second or two (the bgcolor assigned) and then the graphic loads and shows up. Is there any way around this? I have a javascript to preload the image (back.jpg) but that doesn't seem to help.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!

A: 1. The scroll speed depends on number of items to be scrolled, more items -> faster scroll.
You can decrease the number of items or enlarge the size of submenu.

2,3. Please try to add the following param:

  var dm_writeAll = 1;

It will load all backgrounds on page load, no on mouseover.



Q: My site has three levels of a folder structure.  Can I create a menu that will allow me to link in and out of folders?  Or must I design three menu's with different link locations. 


A: You can use one menu.

Use additional parameters to make menu paths absolute:

  var pathPrefix_img = "http://domain.com/images/";
  var pathPrefix_link = "http://domain.com/pages/";

These parameters allow to make images and links paths absolute.
For example:

  var pathPrefix_img = "http://domain.com/images/";
  var pathPrefix_link = "http://domain.com/pages/";
  var menuItems = [
["text", "index.html", "icon1.gif", "icon2.gif"],
];

So, link path will be look so:
http://domain.com/pages/index.html

Images paths will be look so:
http://domain.com/images/icon1.gif
http://domain.com/images/icon2.gif

Please, try to use these parameters.


Q: Hi, I am looking at your Deluxe Menu package. It looks very nice, but I cannot find any kind of manual for how to use it. There's some online documentation on the Tuner, but (for example) I can't find anything that documents the dm_popup window open options. I find some sample code I can copy that has the call

return dm_popup(0, 1000, event)

1. So, what do these parameters mean?
2. It takes a long time for the menu to go away if you don't click anything. From tracing through the obfuscated javascript with firebug, it looks like the second parameter sets a timeout to make the menu go away. But when I change the "1000" to "1", the menu does not appear to behave any differently.
3. If I want to have more than one of these menus show up on the page, how would I do that?
4. I have it set up to show the popup when you right-click a page element. However, the menu items only appear to fire if you then left-click them. This is confusing to the user: I'd like to have the menu items also fire when you right-click them for consistency. How would I configure this?

These are the kinds of questions I would like to have answers to, but I cannot find any relevant documentation. Do I have lots of tracing through javascript ahead of me? If I have just missed the relevant documentation, please tell me where to find it. I would love to use your product, but if I have to spend all my time tracing javascript it's not a big win for me. Thanks for your assistance.

A: 1) You can find window open options info on our website:
http://deluxe-menu.com/popup-mode-sample.html
Click "Show additional info" button on this page.

2) You should adjust the second parameter in dm_popup() function:dm_popup(0, 500, event);

3) See the first parameter in the dm_popup() function is menuInd, soif you want to create several popup menus you should create severaldata file and call them on your page, for example:
<script type="text/javascript" language="JavaScript1.2" src="menu-top.js"></script> // ID - 0 //standard menu (doesn't use popup feature)
<script type="text/javascript" language="JavaScript1.2" src="source_pop.js"></script> // ID - 1
<script type="text/javascript" language="JavaScript1.2" src="source_pop1.js"></script> // ID - 2
<script type="text/javascript" language="JavaScript1.2" src="source_pop2.js"></script> // ID - 3
<script type="text/javascript" language="JavaScript1.2" src="source_pop3.js"></script> // ID - 4

and so on.

See how you should call dm_popup() functions:

<img src="../../../../fileadmin/img/flag_de.gif" width="50"
onMouseOver="return dm_popup(1, 2000, event);" style="cursor: pointer;">
// 1 - is ID of the second menu
....

<img src="../../../../fileadmin/img/flag_fr.gif" width="50"
onMouseOver="return dm_popup(2, 2000, event);" style="cursor: pointer;">
// 2 - is ID of the third menu
// 3 - is ID of the fourth menu
... and so on.

4) Unfortunately it is not possible now.

Unfortunately we don't have additional documentation yet. But you canfind all need info on our website. Try to use search field on ourwebsite.

You can dynamically generate the menu structure. For example movemenuItems into your phph page (or embed in a Smarty Template) insideSCRIPT tag:

 <script type="text/javascript">
    var menuItems = [
      ["Terminal","index.php?form=TERMINAL&tid={$tid}"],
      ["Kassenschnitte","index.php?form=KS&tid={$tid}"],
      ["Buchungen Debit","index.php?form=DEBIT&tid={$tid}"],
      ["Kredit- / Bonuskarten","index.php?form=KREDIT&tid={$tid}"],
      ["Rucklastschriften","index.php?form=RLAST&tid={$tid}"],
      ["Monatsstatistik","index.php?form=STATISTIK&tid={$tid}"],
      ["RL-H.Rechnung","index.php?form=RLASTABR&tid={$tid}"],
      ["LiveStream","index.php?form=LIVESTREAM&tid={$tid}"],
      ["Reports","index.php?form=REPORTS&tid={$tid}"],
      ["Datenhistorie","index.php?form=HISTORY&tid={$tid}"],
      ["Bankleitzahlen","index.php?form=BLZ&tid={$tid}"],
      ["<br />Ihre Nutzerdaten","index.php?form=NDATEN&tid={$tid}"],
   ["<br />{$NAVI}",""],
  ];
  dm_init();
</script>


Q: I'd like to buy a template for creating a basic vertical javascript popout menu that is image based. Can you tell me which of your products I should consider buying? I'm familiar with html, but not other programming languages.

A: If you want to create javascript popout menu you should buy Deluxe Menu,
http://deluxe-menu.com

See the example here:

http://deluxe-menu.com/image-based-menu-sample.html

You can also use your own images for the menu items.
If item text is empty, icon fields will be used as item images.
For example:
["", "index.html", "itemImageNormal.gif", "itemImageOver.gif", "Home Page"]

Please, try the trial version at first. It has full functionality.
