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: Question: How do you enable or configure settings so that on default a specific "Tab" is always set to on or shown as the preload tab, I have a eStore page where I would like to insure that a specific Tab is always shown on default and all others are hidden on the first revealing of the page? Can you help?

A: Use the following parameters to set the selected top and submenu items:

  var bselectedItem = 0;
  var bselectedSmItem = 0;

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=<?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: Is there any luck with getting your popup menusto work with the dynamic drive script..?

A: Unfortunately we don't work with dynamic drive script.
But I suppose that you can use it with Deluxe Menu without any problems.
But in that case you should move menuItems and dm_init(); function from your data file tothe html page directly.
For example delete the following code from your data file

  var menuItems = [
["Aston Martin Page","javascript:ajaxpage('ajaxfiles/external3.htm', 'rightcolumn');\"", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", ],
];
dm_init();

and paste it in SCRIPT tags on your html page in the place where you want to have a menu:

...
<div>
<script type="text/javascript">
  var menuItems = [
["Aston Martin Page","javascript:ajaxpage('ajaxfiles/external3.htm', 'rightcolumn');\"", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", ],
];
dm_init();
</script>
</div>


Q: I have problems to show scandic letters in rollover navigation bar in ie6/7 browsers.
Every other browsers show menu correctly, but these can't show scandic letters.


A: Actually you can use any letters in the menu.

Please, check that you've set "Tools/Use utf8 encode".

When you save your data file in UTF8 you should use the same encoding on our html page.

So you should write:

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8">

If you don't want to use UTF-8 encode on your page you should turn off
"Tools/Use utf8 encode" property, save your data file and manually
change your letters in any text editor.




Q: I would like to reduce or remove the indentation between submenus. That way I can save space for the menu. How can I set indentation?
I would like to change the height of the submenu items (no icons used). How can I do that?


A: Unfortunately, you cannot reduce the indent between main items inXP-Style.

To reduce the indentation between submenus you should set thefollowing parameter:

  var titemHeight=15;
