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: I have tried various different ways, but I cannot get a separator image
I have specified in the Separators section of menu generator to display in.
I have verified that the image exists, but still nothing.


A: To add a separator you should

//--- Separators
  var separatorImage=""; //for subitems (top items in vertical menu)
  var separatorWidth="100%";
  var separatorHeight="3px";
  var separatorAlignment="right";
  var separatorVImage="separator.gif"; //for the top items (subitems items in vertical menu)
  var separatorVWidth="100%";
  var separatorVHeight="2px";
  var separatorPadding="";

You can create separators using menuItems
(you can do it in DeluxeTuner, use "Add separator" button),
for example:

   ["||All Images","gallery_all.html", , , , "_self", , , , ],
   ["||-"],
   ["||Pricing & Ordering Info","gallery_pricing.html", , , ,"_self", , , , ],

Try that.



Q: The problem that I am still experiencing (Im sure I have missed something obvious!) - is that all the pages open when you click on the relevant links but they always open with the "About Us" tab showing and then as soon as you click on a different tab you see it highlight for a second and then it just reverts back to the About Us tab even though the page has changed. As the site opens I obviously want the first tab to be highlighted as opposed to the 2nd one and the each page highlights and holds as you go through the menu.


A: See, you set
  var bselectedItem=2;

That is why "About us" tab is selected.
You should change the selected tab depending on the page you are now.

This Tabs menu can save pressed item automatically within1 page only. If you open another page, the menu can't remember presseditem. You should do that manually using Javascript and menu parameters(  var bselectedItem) or using any server-side script (php, asp, etc.)

Deluxe Tabs doesn't support API functions which can return theselected tab.

If your site is written on PHP you can set "bselectedItem" parameter based on your link beforeyou call tabs-kasper.js file.

For example, move "bselectedItem" parameter from tabs-kasper.js file to yourcode.

<TD vAlign=top align=left>
/* Select Tab */
<script type="text/javascript" language="JavaScript1.2">
  var bselectedItem=<?php echo $seltabs; ?>;
</script>
<SCRIPT src="tabs-kasper.js" type=text/javascript></SCRIPT>
</TD>

You should define seltabs using server side script.

You can also set on every page before you call tabs-kasper.js file(for example, for solution tab).

<TD vAlign=top align=left>
/* Select Tab */
<script type="text/javascript" language="JavaScript1.2">
  var bselectedItem=4;
</script>
<SCRIPT src="tabs-kasper.js" type=text/javascript></SCRIPT>
</TD>

Try that.


Q: I see that you have the demo of the menu working over a frame so that it displays over the lower frame, vertical top to bottom.
However I have played around with your demo and can't seem to replicate the same feature.
Could you please tell me what I have to set to make the easy dropdown menu float over the lower framed window?

A: To initialize the cross frame menu call dm_initFrame() function instead of standard dm_init() function within data.js file:

dm_initFrame(framesetID, mainFrameInd, subFrameInd, orientation);

framesetID - id attribute of the frameset;
mainFrameInd - index of the main frame (where the top-menu is placed), >=0;
subFrameInd - index of the subframe (where the submenus will be shown), >=0;
orientation - frame orientaion: 0 - top-to-bottom, 1 - left-to-right; 2 - bottom-to-top; 3 - right-to-left.

For example, for the following structure:

<frameset id="frmSet" rows="185,*">
<frame id="frame1" src="cross-frame-horizontal-1.htm">
<frame id="frame2" name="testlink.htm" scrolling="no">
</frameset>

the dm_initFrame() function call at the end of data.js file will look like:

dm_initFrame("frmSet", 0, 1, 0);


Q: I'm having a difficult time figuring out how to get content into each "tab" for the dhtml tab menus.
I see that content can be put into div-tag or frame, but how is it referenced in tab so whensomeone clicks the tab,
it shows that content?
Is it the link variable in the MenuTuner? Can the content be a separate html page?

A: See in Deluxe Tabs there are two modes:

1.   var tabMode=0;
You can create only one level of tabs and assign Object Id's of the
DIV's to show when you click on the tab.

["XP Tab 1","content1", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", ],
["XP Tab 2","content2", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", ],
["XP Tab 3","content3", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", ],
["XP Tab 4","content4", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", ],

2.   var tabMode=1;
You can assign only links in this mode.
You should create top level items with subitems.

["XP Tab 1","", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", ],
 ["|Link 1_1","http://deluxe-tabs.com", "", "", "", "", "0", "", "", ],
 ["|Link 1_2","testlink.htm", "", "", "", "", "0", "", "", ],
 ["|Link 1_3","testlink.htm", "", "", "", "", "0", "", "", ],
 ["|Link 1_4","testlink.htm", "", "", "", "", "0", "", "", ],
 ["|Link 1_5","testlink.htm", "", "", "", "", "0", "", "", ],
["XP Tab 2","", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", ],
 ["|Link 2_1","testlink.htm", "", "", "", "", "0", "", "", ],
 ["|Link 2_2","testlink.htm", "", "", "", "", "0", "", "", ],
 ["|Link 2_3","testlink.htm", "", "", "", "", "0", "", "", ],
 ["|Link 2_4","testlink.htm", "", "", "", "", "0", "", "", ],
 ["|Link 2_5","testlink.htm", "", "", "", "", "0", "", "", ],
["XP Tab 3","", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", ],
 ["|Link 3_1","testlink.htm", "", "", "", "", "0", "", "", ],
 ["|Link 3_2","testlink.htm", "", "", "", "", "0", "", "", ],
 ["|Link 3_3","testlink.htm", "", "", "", "", "0", "", "", ],
 ["|Link 3_4","testlink.htm", "", "", "", "", "0", "", "", ],
 ["|Link 3_5","testlink.htm", "", "", "", "", "0", "", "", ],

You can use Object ID as well as Link in both modes. Use the following prefixes within item's link field:
"object:" - means that there is object id after it;
"link:" - means that there is a link after it.
"javascript:" - means that there is a javascript code after it, for example:javascript:alert(\'Hello!\')

So, you should write for example:

 ["|Link 1_1","object:Content1_1", "", "", "", "", "0", "", "", ],
