Recent QuestionsQ: Is it possible to use an external file with these applets? Have tried
but it does not work!
Any suggestions? I have one site with many pages, it would be handy not to have to change 20 pages just to modify one link.
A: You can use "menuItemsFile" param, example
<param name="menuItemsFile" value="menu1.txt">
The menu menu items are in menu1.txt, so you'll need to changeonly this menu1.txt if it necessary to add/remove/change items.

Q: I can't figure out how to get menu items to swap images to use like a traditional image rollover. In the Dhtml menu, I can change the style background without needing images, or I can use generic images as a background, but I have situations where I need to use unique images for each state of a button.
These unique image buttons contain text and graphics, and there are different images for different states: normal, mouse over, mouse down.
A: The menu has only two states normal and mouseover.
You should use Individual Item Styles.
Please, see the example of Deluxe Menu here:
You should use "itemBackImage" parameter.
var itemStyles = [
["itemWidth=92px","itemBorderWidth=0","fontStyle=normal 11px Tahoma","fontColor=#FFFFFF,#FFFFFF","itemBackImage=btn_greenblack.gif,btn_green.gif"],
Q: I am using the deluxe menu in a cross frame set-up. The sub menu's are to be in the 'MAIN' frame. All works great until I have a php file loaded into the MAIN frame.. the sub menus will load in the parent frame.. where the main drop down menu is..
Click skip intro or wait for the site to appear… you will see the menu down the left side… if you click the second button down you will load a php blog page into the MAIN frame… then hover over the third button down and you will see the problem with the sub menu.. it works fine when other pages are loaded (click Home and then hover over the screenplay button again.
Everything is local (the blog is loaded and running for our server account)
A: Your menu is situated in http://www.domain.com domain andthis content is situated in http://domain.com domain(without www).
Try to use the same domains for the menu and your content.
