Javascript Menu. DHTML Menu.

  • There can be multi level menus - create as many rows or columns of the menu as you want.
  • Use a mouse to drag a menu as a usual window. Also you can construct the menu where each submenu can be "detached" from the main menu (MSOfficeToolbarLike mode).
  • When the page is scrolled the menu remains visible. The DHTML menu can "float" along one or two coordinate axes.

Recent Questions

Q: When running DeluxeMenu with IE or Firefox, the background (appearance and items) is transparent.
It is not smart because it affects the reading of the menu's.
My question is: how can I fix this problem for IE and Firefox ?
If you look at it with Opera (version 9.00) one does not have the problem.


A: You should set this parameter:

  var transparency="100";


Q: I've now begun to offer my clients multiple levels offunctionality. Is there any way to add another level of complexity to the php drop down menu? Would AJAX Menus be the best approach for doing this?

A: You can do it in three ways now.

1) You can use API functions to generate items dynamically:

function dm_ext_createSubmenu (menuInd, submenuInd, itemInd, iParams)
function dm_ext_addItem (menuInd, submenuInd, iParams)

See more info:
http://deluxe-menu.com/functions-info.html

2) Use AJAX feature and create different .js files depend on company and user level.

3) Generate your menu items dynamically from database.
Unfortunately we don't have working example with ASP.

You may generate a menu from a database or XML using any server-side script, e.g., PHP, ASP, VB, etc.
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) 2008, 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:

Q: Couple last questions. I have 25 icons (images) on one page. Each image needs it's own popup menu. Obviously I now have the first one working. How and where do I define IDs number 2-24 ? Does each icon need it's own "source_" file?

Also, where is it defined that the popup menu is ID 1 ?


A: > Also, where is it defined that the popup menu is ID 1 ?
Each menu has ID. The ID's number starts with 0.

So, when you have several data files on your page you have such ID's:

<script type="text/javascript" language="JavaScript1.2" src="menu-top.js"></script> // ID - 0

<script type="text/javascript" language="JavaScript1.2" src="source_pop.js"></script> // ID - 1

<script type="text/javascript" language="JavaScript1.2" src="source_pop1.js"></script> // ID - 2

<script type="text/javascript" language="JavaScript1.2" src="source_pop2.js"></script> // ID - 3

<script type="text/javascript" language="JavaScript1.2" src="source_pop3.js"></script> // ID - 4

and so on.

> I have 25 icons (images) on one page. Each image needs it's own popup menu.
If you want to have different Popup menus (there color, item, text,font and so on) you should create 25 different .js files with yourparameters. And call them from your page, for example:

<SCRIPT language=JavaScript1.2 src="source_pop.js" type=text/javascript></SCRIPT>
<SCRIPT language=JavaScript1.2 src="source_pop1.js" type=text/javascript></SCRIPT>
<SCRIPT language=JavaScript1.2 src="source_pop2.js" type=text/javascript></SCRIPT>
...
<SCRIPT language=JavaScript1.2 src="source_pop24.js" type=text/javascript></SCRIPT>

If you have different item text only you can use one
<SCRIPT language=JavaScript1.2 src="source_pop.js" type=text/javascript></SCRIPT>
file. But you should delete the following code:

  var menuItems = [

["Next","testlink.htm"],
["Prev","testlink.htm"],
["Close","testlink.htm"],
];

dm_init();

and move it to the html page:

<body>
...
<SCRIPT language=JavaScript1.2 src="source_pop.js" type=text/javascript></SCRIPT>
<script type="text/javascript"> //first popup menu ID - 1
  var menuItems = [

["Next","testlink.htm"],
["Prev","testlink.htm"],
["Close","testlink.htm"],
];

dm_init();
</SCRIPT>
<script type="text/javascript"> //second popup menu ID - 2
  var menuItems = [

["Text","testlink.htm"],
["Text1","testlink.htm"],
["Text2","testlink.htm"],
];

dm_init();
</SCRIPT>
<script type="text/javascript"> //third popup menu ID - 3
  var menuItems = [

["New_Text","testlink.htm"],
["New_Text1","testlink.htm"],
["New_Text2","testlink.htm"],
];

dm_init();
</SCRIPT>
...
<script type="text/javascript"> //twenty fourth popup menu ID - 3
  var menuItems = [

["New","testlink.htm"],
["New","testlink.htm"],
["New","testlink.htm"],
];

dm_init();
</SCRIPT>

<img src="testimage.gif" width=200 onClick="return dm_popup(1, 1000, event);" style="cursor: hand;">
<img src="testimage.gif" width=200 onClick="return dm_popup(2, 1000, event);" style="cursor: hand;">
<img src="testimage.gif" width=200 onClick="return dm_popup(3, 1000, event);" style="cursor: hand;">
...
<img src="testimage.gif" width=200 onClick="return dm_popup(24, 1000, event);" style="cursor: hand;">
...
</body>



Q: I'd like to buy a template for creating a basic java script vertical menu that is image based. Can you tell me which of your products I should consider buying? I'm familiar with html, but not other programming languages.

A: If you want to create java script vertical menu you should buy Deluxe Menu,

http://deluxe-menu.com

See the example here:

You can also use your own images for the menu items.
If item text is empty, icon fields will be used as item images.
For example:
["", "index.html", "itemImageNormal.gif", "itemImageOver.gif", "Home Page"]

Please, try the trial version at first. It has full functionality.
