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'm currently experimenting with your script which I far more performant than any of the other I have tried so far, so we will probably go with yours and get a distributer license.

I do have a problem though...

I have two menus on my site.

Unfortunately, as they are being used, if you go over the first item in the left menu, it will show its submenu at the top; if you go over the first item of the top menu, it will also show the contents of the second menu...

How can we change this?


A: Installation of your menu is not correct.
See more info about installation here:
http://deluxe-menu.com/installation-info.html

There is no
<script type="text/javascript">  var dmWorkPath = "menudir/";</script>
parameter on your page.

Notice also that you should call dmenu.js file only once and then callyour data files.
Now you have two calls of dmenu.js file.


Q: What do you recommend for "remembering" the tab in the js tab menu,
so that when the page reloads the correct tab is highlighted.

A: Deluxe Tabs doesn't support API functions which can return theselected tab aslo.

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

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

<TD vAlign=top align=left>
/* Select Tab */
<script type="text/javascript" language="JavaScript1.2">
  var bselectedItem=<?php echo $seltabs; ?>;
  var bselectedSmItem=^lt;?php echo $selsmtabs; ?>;
</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, forexample:

<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 want to use the java mac tabs, but my sub menu has no image like on the table sample on your site.

A: You should assign Individual Style for all subitems:

  var bmenuItems = [

["XP Tab 1","", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", ],
 ["|Link 1_1","testlink.htm", "", "", "", "", "0", "", "", ],
 ["|Link 1_2","testlink.htm", "", "", "", "", "0", "", "", ],
 ["|Link 1_3","testlink.htm", "", "", "", "", "0", "", "", ],
 ["|Link 1_4","testlink.htm", "", "", "", "", "0", "", "", ],
 ["|Link 1_5","testlink.htm", "", "", "", "", "0", "", "", ],




Q: I am curious why there are no font settings for "Individual Styles" for"Submenu styles".

Basically I want to have a different font and color for my submenu items so they appear differently than the normal primary Items - but it seems there is only two options for fonts:

- The global font parameters affecting all fonts (primary and sub).
- And the Individial Styles for primary Item Styles.

Why no font paramenters for Submenu Items?


A: You can assign Item Style for the submenu item too.

See the example:

  var itemStyles = [
["fontStyle=normal 13px Comic Sans MS"], //item style 0
];
  var menuStyles = [
];

["Product Info","", "default.files/icon1.gif", "default.files/icon1o.gif", , , "0", , , ], //item style 0
   ["||How To Setup","testlink.html", "default.files/icon6.gif", "default.files/icon6o.gif", , , "0", , , ], //item style 0
