Q: I have a question regarding deluxe tab implementation.Can you guide me on how to change tab selection dynamically for the tabbed navigation.

A: Deluxe Tabs doesn't support API functions which can return the selected tab.

You can set "bselectedItem" and "  var bselectedSmItem" parameters based on your link before you call your data file.

For example, move "  var bselectedItem" and "  var bselectedSmItem" parameters from your data file to your code.

<TD vAlign=top align=left>
/* Select Tab */
<script type="text/javascript" language="JavaScript1.2">
  var bselectedItem=   var bselectedSmItem= </script>
<SCRIPT src="data.js" type=text/javascript></SCRIPT>
</TD>

You should define seltabs and selsmtabs using server side script.

You can also set it on every page before you call data.js file, for example:

<TD vAlign=top align=left>
/* Select Tab */
<script type="text/javascript" language="JavaScript1.2">
  var bselectedItem=4;
  var bselectedSmItem=3;
</script>
<SCRIPT src="data.js" type=text/javascript></SCRIPT>
</TD>

Q: I created a custom error page for a site, but the menu would not display.

I found that this was due to the erroneous "current directory" in the bad link test, for a non-existent directory.

which is: level2/level3/

I changed the script code from:
<script type="text/javascript">  var dmWorkPath = "DMworkfiles/";</script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="DMworkfiles/dmenu.js"></script>

to:

<script type="text/javascript">  var dmWorkPath = "DMworkfiles/";</script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="/DMworkfiles/dmenu.js"></script>

adding the "/" before "DMworkfiles/dmenu.js" source reference allowed the .js file to be found in the root directory and the menu would display.

The problem is that the little menu "expansion" arrow .gif cannot be found in the "current working directory" of level2/level3/. just little "blanks" show.

I tried changing:
  var dmWorkPath = "DMworkfiles/";

to:
  var dmWorkPath = "/DMworkfiles/";

but that did not enable the display of the arrows.

I also had to prefix all of the links in the menu with a "/" to indicate the root directory because of the "current directory" for the bad page.

I hope I have explained the problem sufficiently.
What am I doing wrong or missing here?


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: You will see I got the first level looking amazing.. this is exactly what I wanted. The interesting thing I figured out was not to use the item border.. this was messing things up. You may notice that when each item highlights.. there is a 1px white line at the separators.. but this is not produced with the item border, but rather from the separator itself which I made in two 1 pixel lines, one blue, on white.. this created that effect.

So now my only problem left is to figure out how to bring this look into the submenus. I was thinking it would be nice to use the separators in the same way throughout the submenus. There does not however seem to be a way to do this. When I tried inserting a separator into a submenu.. nothing happened... I am probably doing this wrong.

Can you please show me how to create the same look I have in the first level in the submenus.. this would be helpful.

I must say, this menu is finally starting to look the way I originally envisioned it. I am very happy. =o)

Thank you so much for all the help you have given me.


A: To add separators in submenus you should write it so:

 ["|-",] //first level submenus
   ["||-",] //second level submenus
and so on.

Try that.


Q: Is there a way with your script drop down menu to make the menus appear to be expanded when on a certain page?


A: No, unfortunately there is no way to expand Deluxe Menu.

You can try to use Deluxe Tree, http://deluxe-tree.com in that case.
You can expand specific items in Deluxe Tree using

dtreet_ext_expandItem ()

function.
