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: We are using the javascript drop down menu code to create an external link. The absolute path is recognised but it does not work. At the bottom of the page the browser displays an "error on page" message and nothing happens.

A: Now you have

<script type="text/javascript">  var dmWorkPath = "wdmenu.files/";</script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="wdmenu.files/dmenu.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">  var dmWorkPath="wdtabs.files/";</script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="wdtabs.files/wdtabs.js"></script>


The second call for dmWorkPath is incorrect. Delete it. So you'llhave:

<script type="text/javascript">  var dmWorkPath = "wdmenu.files/";</script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="wdmenu.files/dmenu.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="wdtabs.files/wdtabs.js"></script>

Your menu will work correctly.



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 need to be able to highlight the selected menu item of the sliding drop down menu.

A: Deluxe Menu has only two states normal and mouseover.

Try to do the following things:

- delete   var pressedItem=1; parameter from your data file
- set correct parameter on each page before you call data file, forexample:

<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>
<script type="text/javascript">  var pressedItem=3;</script>
...
<script type="text/javascript" src="menudir/data.js"></script>

You can also set a pressed item using Javascript API:

function dm_ext_setPressedItem (menuInd, submenuInd, itemInd, recursion)

Sets a current pressed item.
menuInd - index of a menu on a page, >= 0.
submenuInd - index of a submenu, >= 0.
itemInd - index of an item, >=0.
recursion = true/false - highlight parent items.

But notice, to use dm_ext_setPressedItem() you should know ID of selected item and subitem.
You can't get this ID after you reload your page. That is why you should write your own code on PHP.



Q: The first is that for some reason my item separator image will not show. I have tried everything.. and no matter what I do the image will not show. I designed a graphic that is 2 pixels high and is the width of the total menu. The first problem is that the graphic wont show at all.. and I do not know why. Secondly, I am now thinking that I would like to use the separator graphic on all levels of the menu.. but this creates a another issue.. as the width of the submenus varies based on the length of the text displayed. How then can I have a separator image work in the submenus?


A: Try to write you Item Styles so:
  var itemStyles = [
["itemBorderWidth=1","itemBorderStyle=solid,solid","itemBorderColor=#D7F5FE,#FFFFFF",
"fontColor=#A0A0A0,#A0A0A0","fontDecoration=none,none"],
["itemBackColor=#6DD0FE,#00ACFC","itemBorderWidth=1","itemBorderStyle=solid,solid",
"itemBorderColor=#6DD0FE,#FFFFFF"],
];

See the normal item border color.

You didn't paste separator into your menuItems.
