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: 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: The submenu should look identical to the main menu but it is not allowing this.
Even though parameters are set to 0 it is showing smart scroll and also not showing the sub menus how they should be.
I also notice and error in the templates window view when I am looking at the javascript onmouseover menu.


A: You've set the exact width for your submenus:

  var smHeight="21px"; // it is the height of the whole submenu

It is not right.

Try to write:
  var smHeight="";

> I also notice and error in the templates window view when I am looking
> at the menu.

Now you have:

  var pressedItem="";

It is not correct. Try to set:

  var pressedItem="-2";

See the attached example.


Q: The problem that I'm having is when ever the menu has an external link clicked to load in the main frame, the main menu (blue one with icons) dropped down & the frame below is moved to the bottom ofthe menu, or in other terms the menu frame stretches to the size of the menu & moves the main frame down.

A: The menu will work correctly in the cross-frame mode if you load pages into the sub frame from the same domain.
If you load pages from another domain submenus won't be shown in the subframe - they will be shown in the frame with the top-menu.
It's caused by a security policy of browsers - a script can't modify a content of pages from another domain.



Q: I currently have the menus set to show the selected item in white and the non-selected items in blue.

However, I can only choose one item in each menu.

Is there any way to choose multiple items from a single ajax drop down menu and have all of selected items show white? If so, what option do I need to enable for the ajax drop down menu?

Programmatically, I think it would be similar to something to:

dm_ext_setPressedItem (1,1,1);
dm_ext_setPressedItem (1,1,2);

A: No, Deluxe Menu doesn't has a feature to highlight multiple items now.

Actually you can use the following function:
function dm_ext_changeItem (menuInd, submenuInd, itemInd, iParams)

You can create Individual Item Style with style of selected item andusing this function assign it for the items you want to highlight

dm_ext_changeItem(0, 0, 1, ["Deluxe Menu Info", "", "", "", "ajax drop down menu hint",,"1"]);
