Recent QuestionsQ: I purchased your product yesterday and was quite impressed, but I am having a bit of a problem with my submenuitems.
In the general menu properties there is a "Global" var titemHeight = 22;
My problem is that I would like my upper level of my drop down menu to have one itemheight and my submenuitems to have a smaller height. Is this possible?
A: In the XP Style
the item's height for the top items and submenus will be different.
If you want to use
you can set ite's height for the submenus:
And for other items use the blank icon with the height you want to have for the upper level of your menu items.
Q: I cannot get the separator image to display in my dhtml right click menu. Is there a setting I am missing? I want to separate the main menu items with an image.
A: To add a separator you should
var separatorImage=""; //for subitems (top items in vertical dhtml right click menu)
var separatorVImage="separator.gif"; //for the top items (subitems items in vertical menu)
You can create separators using menuItems (you can do it in DeluxeTuner, use "Add separator" button), for example:
var menuItems = [
["-"], // this item is separator
Q: I am currently using your free trial version to see if it will work with an application I am working on. I am having a problem with using it in cross-frames mode when the frame that the sub menu appears in has a vertical scrollbar. Basically I have a header frame and a large content frame below it. The menu itself is appearing in the header frame and the sub menus are dropping down and appearing in the lower frame. There is a vertical scrollbar in the lower (content) frame and when I scroll down, the sub menus get scrolled off the screen. This is because they are being rendered at the very top of the content frame and disappear when the top of the frame is no longer visible due to scrolling. Setting the floatable = 1 attribute does not work because the menu itself is not being scrolled off the screen, just the sub-menu drop down is being scrolled off. Is there anything I can do to make this work with my framed application? Thank you for your time.
A: Unfortunately submenus won't float in cross-frame mode. Deluxe Menudoesn't have such feature now.
Q: By the way, this is an issue at your site, too...
Have a look at
FireFox - when hovering over the Product Info or Samples buttons, the Deluxe Menu flash element disappears behind the drop-down menu.
I notice this pages states: "If for some reasons a submenu can't drop down over an object the latter will be hidden for a time when the submenu is shown.".
A: Unfortunately, it is really so.
Now there is no work around for this.
We'll try to fix this bug in the future version of Deluxe Menu.
