Q: I'm am try to use your Deluxe drop down menu generator and can not get it to work..

A: Unfortunately we don't have step by step tutorial yet.
We'll try to create it in the nearest time.

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" onthe 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-menu.com/parameters-info.html
http://deluxe-menu.com/menu-items-info.html

You can also use Individual Styles for items and subitems
http://deluxe-menu.com/individual-item-styles-info.html
http://deluxe-menu.com/individual-submenu-styles-info.html

2. You should install the menu on your page.
You can click, for example, File/Export to HTML.

So, you'll have folder with all engine files and images("Deluxe-menu.files/" folder by default), Deluxe-menu.html file anddata-Deluxe-menu.js file with all menu parameters.

Open Deluxe-menu.html file in any text editor and copy several rows ofcode into your page (for example index.html page of your website).

Copy and paste several rows into your html page (index.html).

<head>
...
<!-- Deluxe Menu -->
<noscript><a href="http://deluxe-menu.com">drop down menu generator 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><script type="text/javascript" src="Deluxe-menu.files/data-Deluxe-menu.js"></script></td></tr> //data-Deluxe-menu.js - data file
created in
Deluxe Tuner.
</table>
...
</body>

You should also copy "Deluxe-menu.files/" folder with 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
dmenu_search.js
and data-Deluxe-menu.js file into the same folder with your index.html page.

Try that.


Q: Can I request something for your next version please.....individual javascript list menu border colours, I think it would then be possible to create a dropped shadow effect perhaps :)

A: You can use different colors for each border side now.

For example:
  var menuBorderColor="#C0AF62 #4949E0 #000000 #B31E1E";

top          right      bottom      left





Q: We would like to use standard images for the main menue and add popup menues by using deluxe menue. The popups are triggered by hovering the cursor above the main menueimages and they should stay visible as long as the cursor is in the image.
If the cursor leaves the image, the popup should be closed unless it is in the popup menue.


A: See, you can use one Deluxe Menu (image-based) with images for the mainitems and submenus or you can use several pop up menus for each image.

http://deluxe-menu.com/popup-mode-sample.html

You should use onMouseover event.
