Javascript Menu. DHTML Menu.

  • Setup menu parameters manually or using De Luxe Tuner. Then add some rows of a code within html page code and your menu is ready!
  • Use special Java Script methods for: Dynamic changing of items (link, text, icons, arrows and even individual style!). Addition/removing of items or submenus. Disabling and enabling menu items. Getting the info on every submenu, menu, and items. Changing appearance of items. Other coding tricks.
  • Cross-frame mode lets you to construct full-featured dhtml menus on the pages with frames. But for all that frame set it's not necessary to insert any additional code into all the pages - just specify several extra menu parameters.
  • Ability to handle the menu from the keyboard via keystrokes.

Q: I have created a CSS menu that appears in the <noscript> section, but am having a problem getting it to behave the same as the java menu. I want to show all the items as asingle line at each level, aligned to the left of the frame. I cannot find a way ofsetting left align in the style sheet or in the deluxe tuner for the css dhtml menu.

A: We've added align parameters in the new version 3.6:
  var subMenuAlign="pleft";

You should set this parameter and specify width for submenu. You can use different smwidthfor each submenu using Individual Submenu styles.

Q: Am I under the correct assumption that if the inner menu item text expands past the ItemWidth or MenuWidth (being that the Width is set -- eg 150px), that the javascript menu div width will expand past it's boundaries instead of wrapping the text? (eg. A text like "Please Make this Wrap instead of expand the width boundary" seems to expand the container's width rather than wrap)

A: There are 2 ways to do that:

1. set

  var noWrap=0;

2. use <br> tags, for example:

  var menuItems = [
["line 1<br>line 2"],

Q: I'm using the trial version of your product and have a question for you before purchasing:

How do I show different content when selecting the different dhtml layer menu tabs?

For example, when I use the Windows Forms tab control in VB .NET, there's more to the tab control than just the dhtml layer menu tabs themselves...there's also the "body" of each individual tab that changes when I select different tabs.
Does your product do the same?

A: You should specify any Object ID name of the DIV.

See, for each item you should assign the ID property of the contentDIV (see data file with your menu parameters).

["Style Name","contentName", "", "", "", "", "1", "", "", ],
["-","", "", "", "", "", "0", "", "", ],
["Style Description","contentDescription", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", ],
["-","", "", "", "", "", "0", "", "", ],
["Style Variations","contentVariations", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", ],
["-","", "", "", "", "", "0", "", "", ],
["Empty","", "", "", "", "", "2", "", "", ],

And on your html page you should create DIV's with such ID. You canset background image for these DIV's in styles.

<div id="contentName" style="height: 0%; visibility: hidden; background-image: url('img/back.jpg'); background-repeat:repeat-y;" class="tabPage">
<p align=center><img src="img/style01_title.gif" width=140 height=90 alt="Glass Style Tabs"></p>

Q: We purchased your software and would like a way to give our users the ability to right click (or equivalent) and open a link in to a new window.

Is there a way to do this? If not, do you have a work around that people have found helpful.

As an example, I have a menu item that goes to Typically, it loads this in to one of our frames. However, I would like the end user to have the ability to either load it in to one of our existing frames or to load it in its own window.

A: You can try to write the following code for your items:

["<a href='index.html' target='_blank' class='home'>Home</a>","", "", "", "", "Return to Index page", "", "0", "", ],

And create styles
color: #FFFFFF;}
color: #FFBEBE;}
