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.

Recent Questions

Q: One more question. How can I make the javascript submenus appear much more quickly? They appear but only after mouseing-over the menu and waiting for approximatelyone second.

A: Try to adjust the following parameters:
  var dm_writeAll=0;

  var smShowPause=100;
  var smHidePause=1000;

  var transDuration=150;
  var transDuration2=200;

You can also turn off transitional effects
  var transition=-1;



Q: I have a web site in which I am using Deluxe Menu in the top frame as a menu that crosses the frame and a menu in the lower frame that uses it as a menu in the same frame.
However, if a user selects the menu in the upper frame they get the menu that is associated with the menu of the lower frame.
The configuration files are names differently.
Is there a setting that needs to be set for the menu to distinguish between the two menus instantiations?


A: I suppose that you have two entries of dmenu.js file on your site in the tag.
You must have only one entry of dmenu.js file.
Please, delete the same code.
You should write so:

<head>

<!-- Deluxe Menu -->
<noscript><a href="http://deluxe-menu.com">Javascript Menu by Deluxe-Menu.com</a></noscript>
<script type="text/javascript">  var dmWorkPath = "menu2.files/";</script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="menu2.files/dmenu.js"></script>
<!-- (c) 2006, by Deluxe-Menu.com -->

</head>

...
<div>
<SCRIPT src="deluxe-menu_files/data-deluxe-menu.js" type=text/javascript></SCRIPT>

Q: We have a query on a navigation that we have created. We would like to knowhowto set the colour for a nav item of the asp drop down menu if any pages in that section are currently being visited?

A: To save your navigation path you should set the following parameter:

  var saveNavigationPath = 1;
The menu keeps items highlighted during menu navigation.
0 - disabled, 1 - enabled (default).

You can highlight menu items by default in two ways:

1) Set the pressed item on each page idividually using the following parameter:

  var pressedItem = -2;
The toggle mode. Sets an index of an item that will be highlighted by default.
-2 - the toggle mode is disabled;
-1 - the toggle mode is enabled, but no items highlighted by default;
0,1,2,3,... - index of highlighted item in a top-level menu.
- delete   var pressedItem=1; parameter from your data file
- set correct parameter on each page before you call data file, for example:

<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=2;</script>

...
<script type="text/javascript" src="menudir/data.js"></script>

2) Set the pressed item/subitem using dm_ext_setPressedItem () function.

Q: Using data-visa-5.js

Trying to get the menu to start collapsed rather than fully expanded.

Thought it was the   var texpanded=0 setting but doesn't seem to have any effect.

A: See, when you set + sign before item's text that is mean that thisitem will be expanded.
Now you have:
