Q: Can you provide an example of how to dynamically change the menu items at runtime for the dropdown menus?
(asp is fine, but if it needs to javascript that is also ok)

A: 1) You can use API functions to affect items dynamically:
http://deluxe-menu.com/functions-info.html

2)Generate your menu items dynamically from database.
Unfortunately we don't have working example with ASP.

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" src="menudir/dmenu.js"></script>
<!-- (c) 2008, 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:

Q: I’m trying to setup a simple DHTML MENU (TREE MENU). It works just fine. I just have an issue that I can’t solve.

The parameter “  var tmenuHeight = "0"; Your documentation says the following
-----------

Height of the menu in (px, % or other units).
If the value 0 - the menu sets its height automatically.
If the value is small - scrollbars appear.

In IE it looks fine but I cannot see the menu in Firefox. When I set the parameter to for example 100 then it shows up both in IE and Firefox. But I cannot set a value in pixels. I don’t know how big the menu is because it’s dynamically built. According to your doc I can specify the value in percentage but this doesn’t work. When I set the value to “100%” it doesn’t show up in Firefox again.  

How can I solve this issue?

A: Try to set this parameter in the following way:

  var tmenuHeight = "auto";



Q:  1) is it possible to have multiple(different) images, popup menus?

 2) Can it Automatically popup instead of Left click?
 Would you show me How?

  3) What is: menuInd - index of the javascript menu script on a page, >= 0 ?
 Could you give more explanation?

A: >  1) is it possible to have multiple(different) images, popup menus?
Yes, you can use any number of popup menus on your page.

>  2) Can it Automatically popup instead of Left click?
>  Would you show me How?
You can use onMouseOver event instead of onClick or onContextMenu events in that case.

> 3) What is: menuInd - index of the javascript menu script on a page, >= 0 ?
Each menu has ID. The ID's number starts with 0.

So, when you have several data files on your page you have such ID's:

<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.

If you want to have different Popup menus (there color, item, text,font and so on) you should create different .js files with yourparameters. And call them from your page, for example:

<script type="text/javascript" language="JavaScript1.2" src="menu-top.js"></script>

<SCRIPT language=JavaScript1.2 src="source_pop.js" type=text/javascript></SCRIPT>
<SCRIPT language=JavaScript1.2 src="source_pop1.js" type=text/javascript></SCRIPT>
<SCRIPT language=JavaScript1.2 src="source_pop2.js" type=text/javascript></SCRIPT>
<SCRIPT language=JavaScript1.2 src="source_pop3.js" type=text/javascript></SCRIPT>

If you have different item text only you can use one
<SCRIPT language=JavaScript1.2 src="source_pop.js" type=text/javascript></SCRIPT>
file. But you should delete the following code:

  var menuItems = [

["Next","testlink.htm"],
["Prev","testlink.htm"],
["Close","testlink.htm"],
];

dm_init();

and move it to the html page:

<body>
...
<SCRIPT language=JavaScript1.2 src="source_pop.js" type=text/javascript></SCRIPT>
<script type="text/javascript"> //first popup menu ID - 1
  var menuItems = [

["Next","testlink.htm"],
["Prev","testlink.htm"],
["Close","testlink.htm"],
];

dm_init();
</SCRIPT>
<script type="text/javascript"> //second popup menu ID - 2
  var menuItems = [

["Text","testlink.htm"],
["Text1","testlink.htm"],
["Text2","testlink.htm"],
];

dm_init();
</SCRIPT>
<script type="text/javascript"> //third popup menu ID - 3
  var menuItems = [

["New_Text","testlink.htm"],
["New_Text1","testlink.htm"],
["New_Text2","testlink.htm"],
];

dm_init();
</SCRIPT>

<script type="text/javascript"> //fourth popup menu ID - 4
  var menuItems = [

["New","testlink.htm"],
["New","testlink.htm"],
["New","testlink.htm"],
];

dm_init();
</SCRIPT>

<img src="testimage.gif" width=200 onClick="return dm_popup(1, 1000, event);" style="cursor: hand;">
<img src="testimage.gif" width=200 onClick="return dm_popup(2, 1000, event);" style="cursor: hand;">
<img src="testimage.gif" width=200 onClick="return dm_popup(3, 1000, event);" style="cursor: hand;">
<img src="testimage.gif" width=200 onClick="return dm_popup(4, 1000, event);" style="cursor: hand;">

</body>
