Javascript Menu. DHTML Menu.

  • Build right-click menus for your site. For this purpose you should appoint a peculiar method for the object you want. The current X,Y of the mouse pointer or your own ones can be used for the context menu.
  • Design menus absolutely based on CSS (Cascading Style Sheets). It is possible to apply the personal CSS styles for every elements of the menu.
  • When the submenu is bigger than the visible page area, the size of submenu will be automatically decreased. To view all the submenu items you do not need to use scrollbars or something like that - just put your mouse to the bottom of a submenu and it will be automagically scrolled! You can also define width and height for each submenu.

Recent Questions

Q: When I maximize the screen the popup windows appear to open below taskbar.
Is there a setting to correct this so that windows always appear above the cascading navigation bar?

A: You should set the following parameter to show submenus above the top items:

  var subMenuVAlign="bottom";

But notice that if there will be no enough space above the menu your submenus will be
shown under the menu.



Q: We are unable to get sub-menus to appear on page load or rather simulate a "windows application style menu".

How can we in combination with the java menu api function dm_ext_setPressedItem get the associated sub-menu to display? This function simply sets the item to "pressed" rather than actually showing the sub-menu. Attempts at beginning an item's text value with "+" only works with Deluxe Tree.

Again, we are trying to use the menu not only as a navigator but also as a visual aid for the user to determine what page they are viewing. For example, when a user clicks on a menu item and that page loads, the menu should display the top-level item pressed, the sub-menu group, and the item pressed.

Furthermore, it would also be useful if we could then "unlock" the pressed items and navigate the menu under normal circumstances.

If there are no existing "quick" functions to accomplish this, could you please point out the function in dmenu.js or another engine file that initiates the display of sub-menus, we could then force the menu to select a top-level item in the onload event thus showing a top-level item pressed along with it's related sub-menu.

A: Unfortunately Deluxe Menu doesn't have such a feature now. It is notpossible to set parent item highlighted, expanded submenu group andhighlighted submenu item.

You can do it using Deluxe Tree now only.


Q: And another question about displaying the links code in html.

How to create a drop down menu links to be displayed in the html code for search engines to catch them, is that possible?

A: You can use search engine friendly code and install it on yourpage before you call your data file.
You'll see text links in that case.

To create a search engine friendly menu you should add additional html code within your html page:

<div id="dmlinks">
<a href="http://deluxe-menu.com">menu_item_text1</a>
<a href="http://deluxe-tree.com">menu_item_text2</a>
...etc.
</div>

To generate such a code use Deluxe Tuner application.

Run Tuner, load your menu and click Tools/Generate SE-friendly Code (F3)



Q: I don't know anything about what JavaScript is all about...and I'm currently trying to get a menu that will float as I scroll down the page.
I saw the examples you have and I'd love to be able to do that on my website, but I don't understand the scripting that you have written there.
Like, what makes it float from this text...


A: If you want a floatable menu, you should set an absolute position forthe menu and paste the following code into your html page:

Paste the following code into <head> tag

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

Then set coordinates of top-left menu corner in the data .js file, forexample:

  var absolutePos=1;
  var posX=30;
  var posY=110;

Then set   var floatable=1.

The parameter floatable=1 makes a floatable menu.

Also you can change any of menu parameters inside data .js file.
