Javascript Menu. DHTML Menu.

  • Tune menu parameters manually or using Deluxe Tuner. Then add several rows of a code within html page - your menu is ready!
  • Use special JavaScript functions for: Dynamic changing of items (text, link, icons and even individual style!). Making a menu item active/inactive. Addition/removing of items. Changing of visibility of items. Getting the information on any menu, submenu and items. Other tricks.
  • Opportunity to control the menu from the keyboard.
  • Cross-frame mode allows you to build full-featured menus on the pages that use frame-based structure. But for all that it's not necessary to insert any additional code into all the pages - just specify some additional parameters of the menu.

Recent Questions

Q: I am looking at purchasing the Drop Down Menu Program. I cannot find any examples of other sites that may be using your product.
And each link that I click on for help gives me code to use on the page. Does this mean that I need to know JavaScript to use this program effectively? How recent is the newest version of your program?
Please advise if there is a support forum, also.


A: I advise you to try our new Javascript menu -- Deluxe Menu, http://deluxe-menu.com.
This is a newer version of DHTML Menu. It works better.

I can send you some links to the websites with Deluxe Menu.

No, there is no need in deep knowledge of javascript to use the menu.
You can use Deluxe Tuner application to create your menus easily.

We release the new version of the menu about two times a year.


Q: I still do not understand your answer about the simple java menu arrows, which work in preview, but not on the website. The html is correct.

A: You have
  var arrowImageMain=["ss.files/arrow_sub5.gif","ss.files/arrow_sub5.gif"];
in your data js, so the arrows must be here
http://domain/ss.files/arrow_sub5.gif

you arrows is here
http://domain/menu/ss.files/arrow_sub5.gif

You can use
  var pathPrefix_img="menu/";

or change paths here
  var arrowImageMain=["ss.files/arrow_sub5.gif","ss.files/arrow_sub5.gif"]; --> menu/ss.files/arrow_sub5.gif



Q: But one of my big questions... can I use an include to pull the script for menu in?

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

You can use cross frame menu.
It allows you to build full-featured menus on the pagesthat 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:

Q: Hi I recently bought a menu from you - which is great.
However, i have been told that search engines will find it hard to crawl through the menu and find the other parts of my site.

Is it possible for me to create my menu to make it easier for search engines to crawl through?


A: Deluxe Menu is a search engine friendly menu since v1.12.

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.
You can find this GUI in the trial package.
Run Tuner, load your menu and click Tools/Generate SE-friendly Code (F3).
