Recent QuestionsQ: Please let us know how to select the font and background colors using the hexidecimal number?
We have another website and want to use the exact same color scheme.
We want to enter the number such as FF8080.
Hopefully, we can enter the hex numbers into this program.
A: You should write, for example, so:
var menuBackColor = "#FF8080";
var menuBorderColor = "#FF8080";
var itemBackColor = ["#FF8080","#FF8080"];
var itemBorderColor = ["#FF8080","#FF8080"];
var fontColor = ["#000000","#FFFFFF"];
Q: I downloaded the free trial version and so far it looks like we can do everything. I have a couple questions:
the designer wants it so that when any of the submenu choice are selected, the main main menu in java item should be highlighted when the submenu page is displayed (kind of a breadcrumb). So, is there any way to change the background image of one of the main menu items after the menu loads? I haven't tried running my main menu in java in a webpage yet so I'm not sure if you generate a separate CSS file or put all of the settings into a STYLE= attribute of each tag.
A: The main menu in java 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:
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.
Q: How to set the icon vertically top when the menu in dhtml text is wrapped?
A: Unfortunately it is not possible to align icon vertically now.
But you can do it using html code within menu in dhtml items, for example:
var menuItems = [
["<img src='deluxe-menu.files/orangeDot.jpg' style='border: 0 none;'> Home","testlink.html", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", ],
["<img src='deluxe-menu.files/orangeDot.jpg' style='border: 0 none;'> Product Info hgdgfjh aaaaaaaaa aaaaaaa aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa aaaa","", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", ],
Q: We are testing you menu in our application. It is being used in cross frame mode. It works very nicely except a couple issues.
The main one is after loading a new page in the sub menus window when I go back to the main menu to select another option but on the initial mouse over it takes several seconds for the menu to come up. Once the delay of loading the initial submenu is over it loads all others very quickly until a new page is loaded again. Is there a way to optimize the menu to reduce this load time? I have already set dm_writeAll=0 but that only increased the speed of the initial display of the main menu.
And the other question is does the dmObjectsCheck option work in cross frame mode? I have it set =1 and the submenus still underneath objects (such as select list) which have a higher z order.
A: Try to do the following:
move all <script> calls into <head>, but delete dm_initFrame()function from data .js file -- move them instead of files calls, i.e.:
<div><script>dm_initFrame("frmSet", 1, 2, 1); </script></div>
It this case data will be loaded when <head> will load, but after thatmenus must be shown quickly.
Let me know about results.
Deluxe Menu overlap select objects in cross-frame mode.
