Javascript Menu. DHTML Menu.

  • Submenus can be shown in 4 ways: - From from left to right + upwards and also left to right. - From right to left and also from right to left + upwards (e.g. for right-to-left languages).
  • Use images for icons, backgrounds of submenus and items. Using images you can create menus entirely based on graphics.
  • Create both horizontal and vertical menus and submenus with any amount of menus on one page.
  • Insert any HTML code inside the menu item - be it a form or a picture, a flash-object or a text. This ability allows you to create various menus of any complexity.

Recent Questions

Q: We are unable to get sub-menus to appear on page load or rather simulate a "windows application style menu".

How can we in combination with the java menu api function dm_ext_setPressedItem get the associated sub-menu to display? This function simply sets the item to "pressed" rather than actually showing the sub-menu. Attempts at beginning an item's text value with "+" only works with Deluxe Tree.

Again, we are trying to use the menu not only as a navigator but also as a visual aid for the user to determine what page they are viewing. For example, when a user clicks on a menu item and that page loads, the menu should display the top-level item pressed, the sub-menu group, and the item pressed.

Furthermore, it would also be useful if we could then "unlock" the pressed items and navigate the menu under normal circumstances.

If there are no existing "quick" functions to accomplish this, could you please point out the function in dmenu.js or another engine file that initiates the display of sub-menus, we could then force the menu to select a top-level item in the onload event thus showing a top-level item pressed along with it's related sub-menu.

A: Unfortunately Deluxe Menu doesn't have such a feature now. It is notpossible to set parent item highlighted, expanded submenu group andhighlighted submenu item.

You can do it using Deluxe Tree now only.


Q: I have a Menu called topnavbar.js when this menu is applied to a page not in a subfolder the links work. This topnavbar menu includes the following items; District Office, Cumberland Head Elementary School, Beekmantown Elementary School, Beekmantown Middle School, and Beekmantown High School.

However, if you put the topnavbar on a page that is located in a subfolder the links in the topnavbar add this subfolder name to the link.  So instead of districtoffice.htm the link is transportation/districtoffice.htm and that page doesn’t exist.


A: You can 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: I want to use your menu to create a javascript menu bars like effect in my application. For that I need only the images in the menu items and sub menu items(no text).

And I also want to enable disable toolbar items dynamically depending on the flow in my web application.

I could not find any help for the javascript API on your site that changes the menu dynamically.

A: Our menu is very flexible, so you'll be able to implement any menusystem you want, see for example:
