Q: The pop-up windows are loading as the page loads, as well as when you click the appropriate object.
How can we prevent the pre-loading of html popups so that they only load onclick?

A: In that case you shouldn't set openAfter and closeAfter parameters.

So, you'll have:

deluxePopupWindow.attachToEvent(win,',,,,,')
or
deluxePopupWindow.attachToEvent(win,'openAfter=,closeAfter=,,,,')

See the following example:

Q: Can I call javascript within the drop menu javascript?

A: Yes, it is possible.
Actually you can use your own Javascript code instead standard links and html code inside item text. For example:

  var menuItems = [
["text", "javascript:your_code_here"]
];

or

  var menuitems = [
["<div onClick='urlSubstitution(\'transco/sheet.asp?stype=1\')'>Table of Contents</div>", ""]
];

Q: Can I create menus with cross-frame capability using your drop down menu generator?
With the menu beingin one frame and the submenus opening to the other 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);

Q: When I stay on one page (for example "Home") аlso must have the menu-point "home" another color or font. How can I make this?


A: You should set pressed item.
Please, check the following parameter

  var pressedItem=-2;
This parameter 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-menu.

Deluxe Menu v2.4 has only two states normal and mouseover. Now we'repreparing new version of Deluxe Menu. It saves it state after thereloading of the page. We're planing to release a new version during a month.

You can set a pressed item using Javascript API:

function dm_ext_setPressedItem (menuInd, submenuInd, itemInd, recursion)

Sets a current pressed item.
menuInd - index of a menu on a page, >= 0.
submenuInd - index of a submenu, >= 0.
itemInd - index of an item, >=0.
recursion = true/false - highlight parent items.

But notice, to use dm_ext_setPressedItem() you should know ID of selected item and subitem.
You can't get this ID after you reload your page. That is why you should write your own code on PHP.
You can also set the correct
  var pressedItem=1;
parameter on each html page.
