Javascript Menu. DHTML Menu.

  • Create contextual menus for your pages. For this purpose you should assign a special function for the object you want. The current coordinates of the mouse pointer or your own ones can be used for the contextual menu.
  • When the submenu is larger than the visible area of the page the submenu will be automatically decreased. To see 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 automatically scrolled! You can also specify height and width for each separate submenu.
  • Build menus completely based on Cascading Style Sheets. It is possible to appoint the individual CSS styles for separate elements of the menu.

Q: There's no explanation of what to do after creating a dhtml menu example or where to paste the code, which files to upload..

A: 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" on
the 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-tree.com/parameters-info.html
http://deluxe-tree.com/menu-items-info.html

You can also use Individual Styles for items and subitems

http://deluxe-tree.com/individual-item-styles-info.html
http://deluxe-tree.com/individual-submenu-styles-info.html

2. You should install the menu on your page.
You can click, for example, File/Export to HTML (you can't do it inthe MAC version).
Save your data file.
Add several rows into your html page.

<head>
...
<!-- Deluxe Menu -->
<noscript><a href="http://deluxe-menu.com">Javascript Menu 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>%lt;script type="text/javascript" src="deluxe-menu.files/data.js"></script></td></tr> //data.js - data file created in Deluxe Tuner.
</tablegt;
...
</body>

You should also copy 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

into "deluxe-menu.files/" folder. You should place this folder in the

Try that.



Q: How do I align sub-menus on the left for the javascript menu sample?

A: Set the following menu parameters:
  var subMenuAlign="left";
  var subMenuVAlign="top";


Q: How can I set the padding for the menu text at the top for the javascript select menu? I want more padding on the left of the text but I don't want it centered.

A: You can set bigger left padding for your Submenu Style, for example:

  var menuStyles = [
["menuBackColor=transparent","menuBorderWidth=0","itemSpacing=1","itemPadding=0px 5px 0px 25px"],
];

itemPadding=0px 5px 0px 25px - top right bottom left


Q: Can your menu, when placed in a master page, be propagated throughout an application's sub-folders
or will the html menu need to be added to each page separately?

A: If you don't want to create your menu on each page you can use a
server-side script (php, asp, vb, etc.) to generate html pages from
templates on your server.

However, these scripts don't work inside of Javascript .js files, so,
you should move parameters of a menu from a .js file into an html-page, e.g.:

<!-- Deluxe Menu -->
<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>
<!-- (c) 2006, http://deluxe-menu.com -->

<script type="text/javascript" language="JavaScript1.2">
// and describe parameters of a menu
  var parameter1=value1;
  var parameter2=value2;
etc.

  var menuItems = [
// here you generate items using server-side scripts (php, asp, vb, etc.)
];


The example of the menu working with PHP/MYSQL you can find here:

You can use cross frame menu. It allows you to build full-featured menus on the pages
that use frame-based structure. And it's not necessary to insert any code into all the pages -
just specify the additional parameters of the menu and initialize it.

To install the menu in a cross-frame mode, see more info here:
