Recent Questions

Q: Using the example menu you have, how do i make the sub-menu for the 'Sample' menu item a multi-column and leave the 'Product Info' menu item as is.
I only want certain sub-menus to have multi-columns. I don't want all menu items to have a multi-column sub.


A: Please, see the attached example.
You should use individual styles.

  var menuStyles = [
    ["smColumns=2"],
    ["smColumns=1"], //style 1
];

...
   ["More Samples","testlink.htm"],
      ["|Group 1","", , , , , "3", "1", , ], //assign style 1

Try that.


Q: In the rollover menus, how can I have a heading link to and open another website's home page?

A: 1) You can show the popup window when you hover, click or mouseout on some elements on yourpage. For example you have:

<p><img border="0" src="images/submenu-bg.gif" width="170" height="29" id="open_popup"></p>

So, in Deluxe Tuner you should enter 'open_popup' object ID in the onMouseOver,onClick or onMouseOut fields.

Actually you can assign id to any object on your page:
add id="open_popup" for <a>, <div>, <img> ... tags.

2) Or you can create only one data file and use deluxePopupWindow.open() function to open the popups.

More info about deluxePopupWindow.open() function you can find:
http://deluxepopupwindow.com/window-installation-info.html

function deluxePopupWindow.open("winID", "content", "header", "param", "skin", "contentType")

Use another winID (first parameter) than you have in your data file if you don't want to close 1-st popup window or use thesame winID=win if you want to close 1-st popup.

content - will be the path to the file you want to load in your popup (files/test.html)
skin - is the name of your skin (default in my example)
contentType - set this parameter to iframe.

I call the skin .js file with id='win'.
On the page you should open popup windows with the same id:

<a title="Click to open sample" href="javascript:;" onclick="deluxePopupWindow.open('win', 'files/test.html', 'Window','width=220,height=270,resizable,scrollbars=no,middle,right,fade-effect', 'windowsvista_graphite', 'iframe')">Click to open 1 PopupWindow with 'files/test.html' content.</a>

<a title="Click to open sample" href="javascript:;" onclick="deluxePopupWindow.open('win', 'files/1test.html', 'Window','width=220,height=270,resizable,scrollbars=no,middle,right,fade-effect', 'windowsvista_graphite', 'iframe')">Click to open 2 PopupWindow with 'files/1test.html' content.</a>

<a title="Click to open sample" href="javascript:;" onclick="deluxePopupWindow.open('win', 'files/2test.html', 'Window','width=220,height=270,resizable,scrollbars=no,middle,right,fade-effect', 'windowsvista_graphite', 'iframe')">Click to open 3 PopupWindow with 'files/2test.html' content.</a>

<a title="Click to open sample" href="javascript:;" onclick="deluxePopupWindow.open('win', 'files/3test.html', 'Window','width=220,height=270,resizable,scrollbars=no,middle,right,fade-effect', 'windowsvista_graphite', 'iframe')">Click to open 4 PopupWindow with 'files/3test.html' content.</a>

<a title="Click to open sample" href="javascript:;" onclick="deluxePopupWindow.open('win', 'files/4test.html', 'Window','width=220,height=270,resizable,scrollbars=no,middle,right,fade-effect', 'windowsvista_graphite', 'iframe')">Click to open 5 PopupWindow with 'files/4test.html' content.</a>

<a title="Click to open sample" href="javascript:;" onclick="deluxePopupWindow.open('win', 'files/5test.html', 'Window','width=220,height=270,resizable,scrollbars=no,middle,right,fade-effect', 'windowsvista_graphite', 'iframe')">Click to open 6 PopupWindow with 'files/5test.html' content.</a>

<a title="Click to open sample" href="javascript:;" onclick="deluxePopupWindow.open('win', 'files/6test.html', 'Window','width=220,height=270,resizable,scrollbars=no,middle,right,fade-effect', 'windowsvista_graphite', 'iframe')">Click to open 7 PopupWindow with 'files/6test.html' content.</a>

So, the previous window will be closed and the new one will be opened.If you want to open several windows at once use different id's for each link.



Q: Is there a way to programmatically close a hover popup via javascript?

A: You can close the popup using the following function:document.getElementById('win').hide();

Unfortunately it won't work if you use iframe as window content.
You open another page in the popup (in Iframe) so you cannot access
document.getElementById('win').hide();
element which is situated on the first page.

When you use text or object_id as window content the content of the popup will be situated
on the same page so you can access document.getElementById('win') element and hide it.

There is a workaround for Iframe.
Use text as content type and add the following code inside popup:

<a onclick="document.getElementById('win').hide();">...</a> <iframe></iframe>

Q: Can you please write me, as I have the active menu button in the drop down menu software different color display?

A: The menu has only two states normal and mouseover.

Try to do the following things:

- delete   var pressedItem=1; parameter from your data file
- set correct parameter on each page before you call data file, forexample:

<noscript><a href="http://deluxe-menu.com">Javascript Menu by Deluxe-Menu.com</a></noscript>
<script type="text/javascript">  var dmWorkPath = "menudir/";</script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="menudir/dmenu.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">  var pressedItem=3;</script>
...
<script type="text/javascript" src="menudir/data.js"></script>

You can also 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.
