Recent QuestionsQ: I have an HTML application with 4 iframes. The main html file contains 3 iframes (top toolbar, left toolbar, and main area) and the menu. The main area iframe contains one additional iframe were the actual data is. When I interact with the data in this last iframe and try to dynamically change the menu in the .html file I get the error message: 'm' is null or not an object
The API call is:
dm_ext_addItem(0, 0, ["test1", "testlink.htm", "", "", "test1m", "_blank", "1"]);
I only have one menu.
I am using IE6
I included these files in both the hta file and the iframe source file.
A: Deluxe Menu doesn't work with <IFrame> objects. It works with<frameset> objects only. All it can to do with <IFrame> is to loadpages into it.
You should use standard installation for the menu (cross-frame mode).
See more info here:
There is no need to call dmenu_...js files.
You should write:
<!-- Deluxe Menu -->
<!-- (c) 2006, http://deluxe-menu.com -->
Q: That is what I need:
a) I build a menu with an item like this:
b) when I select that item, I need that page product1.htm loads into an iFrame.
Can I do this?
A: You should set the Iframe name as the target value in the menuItems.

var itemTarget = "";
Q: I am using Deluxe Menu and I had a question.
When you roll your mouse over the menu items, the background color of that menu item changes (it becomes darker). Is there a way to establish a setting such that when a Menu Item is CLICKED, the color of that Menu Item STAYS darker. This will help the user know which category of the website they are currently visiting.
Please let me know. Thanks!
A: The menu has only two states normal and mouseover. We'll try to add the pressed state in the future.
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: Can youtell me which transition is the regular traditional transition with no effects for the dhtml navigation?
