Recent Questions

Q: We recently bought your product.

We are developing in ASP.NET (VB) and we have a problem making you deluxe menu dynamic to suit our needs. We are using the Deluxe Menu.

The problem is each time a page with dhtml nav loads, we want to be able to generate the menuItems variable to reflect the options the individual user has, so it can't be hard coded into data.js it MUST be provided by an aspx file and attached somehow. I can't work out how to attach the variable (even a static one) as a separate file, so if you can do it with a static one, we can extend it to a dynamic one later.

For example the JS in the data.js file we want the MenuItem dimension you be loaded in a seperate file, some kind of include.

  var menuItems = [
["Home","index.aspx", "", "", "", "_self", "", "", "", "", "", ],
["About","about.aspx", "", "", "", "_self", "", "", "", "", "", ],
["Contact","contact.aspx", "", "", "", "_self", "", "", "", "", "", ],
["Help","", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", ],
 ["|HowTo Register","RegHelp.aspx", "", "", "", "_self", "", "", "", "", "", ],

Hope this makes sense.

A: You can move
  var menuItems = [
...
];
dm_init();

dhtml nav code from your data file to your page (template) directly:

<script>
  var menuItems = [
...
];
dm_init();

</script>


Q: Can I show / hide the javascript floating menu as needed.

A: You should paste javascript code into item's link field of the floating menu,for example:

  var menuItems =
[ ["text", "javascript:document.getElementById('dm0m0').style.visibility='hidden'", ...]
];


Q: Now I experiences a problem with the Danish letters in the dhtml drop down menu generator! I have changed the letters in the scriptfile - but this does not work.

Have we a problem with Danish letters?

A: Notice that you should have UTF8 charset on your page too:
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html" charset="UTF-8">

You can also use another charset on your html page and open your data file in text editor, enter thissymbols and save data file in the way you save your html page.

Notice that you should turn off "Tools/Use utf8 encode" setting inorder to open your data file correctly in Deluxe Tuner.



Q: I'm am try to use your Deluxe drop down menu generator and can not get it to work..

A: Unfortunately we don't have step by step tutorial yet.
We'll try to create it in the nearest time.

1. Create your menu in Deluxe Tuner.

When you open Deluxe Tuner you can click "File/New"and add items and subitems using buttons "Add Item" and "Add Subitem" onthe main window.
You should set items and subitems parameters on the "Item Parameters"window.
See also other parameters for the menu on the main window.

More info about menu parameters you can find on our site
http://deluxe-menu.com/parameters-info.html
http://deluxe-menu.com/menu-items-info.html

You can also use Individual Styles for items and subitems
http://deluxe-menu.com/individual-item-styles-info.html
http://deluxe-menu.com/individual-submenu-styles-info.html

2. You should install the menu on your page.
You can click, for example, File/Export to HTML.

So, you'll have folder with all engine files and images("Deluxe-menu.files/" folder by default), Deluxe-menu.html file anddata-Deluxe-menu.js file with all menu parameters.

Open Deluxe-menu.html file in any text editor and copy several rows ofcode into your page (for example index.html page of your website).

Copy and paste several rows into your html page (index.html).

<head>
...
<!-- Deluxe Menu -->
<noscript><a href="http://deluxe-menu.com">drop down menu generator by deluxe-menu.com</a></noscript>
<script type="text/javascript">  var WorkPath="Deluxe-menu.files/";</script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="Deluxe-menu.files/dmenu.js"></script>
...
</head>

<body>
...
<table>
<tr><td><script type="text/javascript" src="Deluxe-menu.files/data-Deluxe-menu.js"></script></td></tr> //data-Deluxe-menu.js - data file
created in
Deluxe Tuner.
</table>
...
</body>

You should also copy "Deluxe-menu.files/" folder with all engine files
dmenu.js
dmenu4.js
dmenu_add.js
dmenu_dyn.js
dmenu_key.js
dmenu_cf.js
dmenu_popup.js
dmenu_ajax.js
dmenu_search.js
and data-Deluxe-menu.js file into the same folder with your index.html page.

Try that.
