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: I cannot see the arrow.gif's in my rollover drop down menu.

Here is my code:
  var arrowImageMain=["menudir/arrow_main3.gif","menudir/arrow_main3.gif"];
  var arrowWidthSub=0;
  var arrowHeightSub=0;
  var arrowImageSub=["menudir/arrow_sub5.gif","menudir/arrow_sub4.gif"];

Do I need to put the arrow's somewhere else?

A: You should check the following parameter:

  var pathPrefix_img="data-samples/images/";

Please check that you have the correct path to your aroows relative to the folder withindex.html file.

For example, you have:
menudir/
menu.js
dmenu.js
arrow_main3.gif
...
index.html

In menu.js file you should write:
  var pathPrefix_img="menudir/";
  var arrowImageMain=["arrow_main3.gif","arrow_main3.gif"];
  var arrowImageSub=["arrow_sub5.gif","arrow_sub4.gif"];

or
  var pathPrefix_img="";
  var arrowImageMain=["menudir/arrow_main3.gif","menudir/arrow_main3.gif"];
  var arrowImageSub=["menudir/arrow_sub5.gif","menudir/arrow_sub4.gif"];


Q: I have been mostly creating my menus by starting with a template file that has the features I need, and then modifying that file by hand (as opposed to using the Tuner program). In this case I am using data-vista-01.js.

When I load my html file that has references to the necessary resources (e.g. .js, gif, etc) in a directory that has the Images folder and Menu folder copied directly from the installed Deluxe Menu program directories, I get what I want.

This is perfect. But I think to myself, surely I don't need all the .js files from the Menu directory, nor do I need all the .gif files from the Images directory, so I started deleting those files one at a time, until I got to the point where Images contained only the Vista1 folder + the empty.gif file, and the Menu folder contained only dmenu.js. My menu now not working.

I'm guessing that some graphic files need to draw the top-level menu bar are missing. But which ones?
So my question is, what files do I really need? Is this something the documentation describes, and if so where?

I hope I don't have to include the full contents of the Menu and Images folder, as they are quite large.


A: Unfortunately, you should add all need images manually.
We'll try to correct it soon.
You can open your data.js file and see what images you're using in themenu and copy tese images into your folder.

You should also change the following parameter:

  var pathPrefix_img="";

There is no need to use all engine files for the menu.
Description of files you can find here:

Q: The menu is very large and I am concerned about load speed.

Does the ajax like technology just load the top tabs and then only the sub menus if they are clicked? I have clicked true and added 5 as there are 5 submenus but it does not seem to make any difference.

What can I do to speed up the javascript onclick menu?

A: Check that you've set the following parameter:

  var dm_writeAll=0;


Q: Do the Vista style menus support a separator?
It seems to add some space but the separator line is not drawn.


A: Yes, you can paste a separator in the Vista style menus.

Please, see the following parameters:

//--- Separators
  var separatorImage=""; //for subitems
  var separatorWidth="5";
  var separatorHeight="100%";
  var separatorAlignment="right";
  var separatorVImage="images/public/separator.gif"; //for the top items
  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.
