Javascript Menu. DHTML Menu.

  • Use a mouse to move a menu as a usual window. Also you can create the menu where each submenu can be "separated" from the menu (MS Office toolbar-like mode).
  • When the page is scrolled the menu remains visible. The menu can "float" along one or two coordinate axes.
  • There can be multilevel menus - create as many rows of the menu as necessary. Any submenu in its turn can include different number of columns.

Q: The asp drop down menu should indicate with on which page I me just considers
(with anothercolour of the font of the active Link from the navigation, or an underline, bolder font, ...).

A: Deluxe Menu has only two states normal and mouseover, but
you can highlight menu items in two ways:

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.

Q: How can I set a top menu as a link in the web tree view?
Also, some of the parent menu items don't work as a link even though areconfigured as links.


A: Actually you cannot use links for the top items in the XP Style.
But theoretically you can use links for the top items. You can write

["<a href='index.html' class='home' target="frame">Home</a>","", "", "", "", "Return to Index page", "", "0", "", ],
["<a href='http://www.domain.uk' class='home' target="frame">About Us</a>","", "", "", "", "", "", "0", "", ],

Q: We recently bought your product.

We are developing in ASP.NET (VB) and we have a problem making you deluxe menu dynamic to suit our needs. We are using the Deluxe Menu.

The problem is each time a page with dhtml nav loads, we want to be able to generate the menuItems variable to reflect the options the individual user has, so it can't be hard coded into data.js it MUST be provided by an aspx file and attached somehow. I can't work out how to attach the variable (even a static one) as a separate file, so if you can do it with a static one, we can extend it to a dynamic one later.

For example the JS in the data.js file we want the MenuItem dimension you be loaded in a seperate file, some kind of include.

  var menuItems = [
["Home","index.aspx", "", "", "", "_self", "", "", "", "", "", ],
["About","about.aspx", "", "", "", "_self", "", "", "", "", "", ],
["Contact","contact.aspx", "", "", "", "_self", "", "", "", "", "", ],
["Help","", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", ],
 ["|HowTo Register","RegHelp.aspx", "", "", "", "_self", "", "", "", "", "", ],
 ["|FAQ","FAQ.aspx", "", "", "", "_self", "", "", "", "", "", ],
 ["|Dos 'n' Don'ts","DoDont.aspx", "", "", "", "_self", "", "", "", "", "", ],
 ["|Workshop","workshop.aspx", "", "", "", "_self", "", "", "", "", "", ],
["Gold Run","", "", "", "", "_self", "", "", "", "", "", ],
 ["|About Goldrun","goldrunAbout.aspx", "", "", "", "_self", "", "", "", "", "", ],
 ["|Veiw Sites","GoldDistribSites.aspx", "", "", "", "_self", "", "", "", "", "", ],
["My Run","", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", ],
 ["|About","aboutmyrun.aspx", "", "", "", "_self", "", "", "", "", "", ],
["TICs","", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", ],
 ["|About","abouttics.aspx", "", "", "", "_self", "", "", "", "", "", ],
["Metro","", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", ],
 ["|About","aboutmetro.aspx", "", "", "", "_self", "", "", "", "", "", ],
["Distribution","", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", ],
 ["|About","DistribAbout.aspx", "", "", "", "_self", "", "", "", "", "", ],
 ["|Status","DistribStatus.aspx", "", "", "", "_self", "", "", "", "", "", ],
 ["|News","DistribNews.aspx", "", "", "", "_self", "", "", "", "", "", ],
 ["|Display Units","DistribDisplay.aspx", "", "", "", "_self", "", "", "", "", "", ],
 ["|Team","", "", "", "", "_self", "", "", "", "", "", ],
 ["|View Sites","DistribSites.aspx", "", "", "", "_self", "", "", "", "", "", ],
 ["|TIC Budget","", "", "", "", "_self", "", "", "", "", "", ],
];

Hope this makes sense.

A: You can move
  var menuItems = [
...
];
dm_init();

dhtml nav code from your data file to your page (template) directly:

<script>
  var menuItems = [
...
];
dm_init();

</script>


Q: There is one other issue I am hoping you can help with? When the dhtml web menu drops down in Safari over a SWF -- it disappears. I have added the function dm_ext_ruleObjectHide() code to the top of my data file. Can you please advise what else I can try?

A: Submenu couldn't overlap flash in Safari correctly.

And the following code:
// Safari detect
if ((parseInt(navigator.productSub)>=20020000) &&(navigator.vendor.indexOf('Apple Computer') != -1) &&(navigator.product=='Gecko'))
return true;

in function
function dm_ext_ruleObjectHide()
{
// Safari detect
if ((parseInt(navigator.productSub)>=20020000) &&(navigator.vendor.indexOf('Apple Computer') != -1) &&(navigator.product=='Gecko'))
return true;
else
return false;
}

cause flash to disappear in Safari.

You can try to write this function in the following way:

function dm_ext_ruleObjectHide()
{
return false;
}
