Javascript Menu. DHTML Menu.

  • Submenus drop down over all the objects of the page (select, flash, object, embed, applet). If for some reasons a submenu can't drop down over an object, the latter will be hidden for a time when the submenu is shown.
  • These effects will make your menu more attractive and stylish. You can cast a shadow on the menu and submenus, set transparency. Among available transitional effects there are such as fade, mosaic, random dissolve, slide out and many others.
  • Create individual styles and assign them to any submenu and item. Use individual styles to achieve stunning effects!

Recent Questions

Q: Last, I couldn't solve the issue I meet when I set up a long name for an dhtml side menu item: next item overlaps. Is it possible to specify the width of an item?

A: You can try to use the following dhtml side menu parameters to use combinedbackground for your items:

  var beforeItemImage = [,]; //left-side image for normal and mouse over state
  var itemBackImage = [,]; //background or image for normal and mouse over state
  var afterItemImage = [,]; //right-side image for normal and mouse over state
  var beforeItemImageW = '';
  var afterItemImageW = '';
  var beforeItemImageH = '';
  var afterItemImageH ='';

But you should create a small images in any Graph Editor, for example:
button_n_back.gif
button_n_left.gif
button_n_right.gif
button_o_back.gif
button_o_left.gif
button_o_right.gif



Q: I got the menu to display across frames, but it displays differently in Firefox & Mozillavs. Internet Explorer. Is that to be expected?

In The Mozilla-based browsers, the submenu butts right upunder the main menu – which is how I want it. In IE, it is about 10 pixels below.

Also, I can’t get the submenus to drop down directly under the main menus – they are offset by about 100 pixels to the right.

A: The problem is in a structure of your frameset.
Mozilla browsers can't determine absolute coordinates for a frame, sosubmenus drop down with an offset.

You should create the following frameset structure:

--|------------
   | menu
--|------------
   |
   | submenus
   |

Now a top row has 2 columns and all browsers can determine awidth of the 1st column in the second row.



Q: I am having a little problem. While the code seems to be working fine with IE7, it doesnТt load on Firefox 2.0.

IТve spent quite a while looking through the code and looking at the live examples on your site to see if there is anything I can do, but havenТt found a solution to this problem!


A: You should set the following parameter:

  var tmenuHeight = "auto";


Q: I have been working with on a site and I am kind stack using the program. I want to use the tree option but not all “buttons” need to have subcategories. For example:

Category 1

            Sub-menu 1-1
            Sub-menu 1-2
            Sub-menu 1-3

Category 2

            Sub-menu 2-1
            Sub-menu 2-2
            Sub-menu 2-3

Category 3

Category 4

When someone click on the “Category 1” or “Category 2”, I want them to see the sub-menus. However, when some click on “Category 3” or “Category 4”, I would like to have it open the appropriate page. How do I do this? This will make a lot easier because not all buttons need to have sub-menus… I hope that makes sense and you can help me on getting this done.


A: You cannot use links for the top items in XP Style only.

  var tXPStyle=1;

but you can write:
["<a href='http://deluxe-menu.com'>Item 45</a>","", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", ],
