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 was trying out the Vista samples and was able to change the sub-item font size but not the cascade menu javascript item(s) font size. Is this by design?


A: You should change font for the main items in the Individual Styles.

  var itemStyles = [
["itemWidth=92px","itemBorderWidth=0","fontStyle=normal 11pxTahoma","fontColor=#FFFFFF,#FFFFFF","itemBackImage=data-vista-03.files/btn_magentablack.gif,data-vista-03.files/btn_magenta.gif"],
];

Try that.


Q: Compliments on your product, I particularly enjoy the complete set of gui and java, that allows for the quick changes.

After a couple of months of using the trial, I have now purchased it and installed the license.

My question however regards the performance of the menu. Using firebug I note that my deluxe menu .js are the performance bottlenecks, It appears as if they are not being cached and it appears that collecting them is taking longer then the other .js files. What can I do to optimize the load time of the javascript multi level menu and prevent, reloading it from the server with every page reload. The apache has set the expiry correct I believe, as I understand from the header.

A: You can try to use AJAX technology.

AJAX-like technology: data for submenus can be loaded "on-the-fly" from the server.

New parameter:
  var tajax = 0/1; - disables/enables AJAX-like support

Current syntax for item parameters (  var tmenuItems):
[text, link, iconNormal, iconOver, iconExpanded, tip, target, itemStyleInd, itemXPStyleInd, jsFileName]

Where jsFileName - .js filename on the server with submenu items (  var tmenuItems).



Q: I'm interested in buying your products. I have no experience in programming, only know html/php. How easy would it be to set up these down vertical menu items? I understand your explanation of copying scripts into the relevant html pages. But what about inserting the menus? Do I have to program them myself?

Thanks for your help. I just love your deluxe items.


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

1. Create your menu in Deluxe Tuner application.
You can create any menu as you like in Deluxe Tuner.

Deluxe Tuner v2.4 supports Deluxe Menu (http://deluxe-menu.com) &Deluxe Tree (http://deluxe-tree.com) & Deluxe Tabs (http://deluxe-tabs.com)

You can use ready to use templates. You can find them in the templateswindow.

When you open Deluxe Tuner ( Deluxe Menu ) 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 (you can alsouse local version of the site which you can find in the trial package"Deluxe Menu / deluxe-menu.com /")
http://deluxe-menu.com/parameters-info.html

You can also use Individual Styles for items and subitems

2. You should install the menu on your page.
You can click, for example, File/Export to HTML (you can't do it inthe MAC version).

Add several rows into your html page.

<head>
...
<!-- Deluxe Menu -->
<noscript><a href="http://deluxe-menu.com">Javascript Menu by Deluxe-Menu.com</a></noscript>
<script type="text/javascript">  var dmWorkPath="deluxe-menu.files/";</script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="deluxe-menu.files/dmenu.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="data-deluxe-menu.js"></script> //data-deluxe-menu.js - data file created in Deluxe Tuner.
...
</head>

<body>
...
<table>
<tr><td><script type="text/javascript" src="deluxe-menu.files/data.js"></script></td></tr>
</table>
...
</body>

dmenu_add.js
dmenu_dyn.js
dmenu_key.js
dmenu_cf.js

into "deluxe-menu.files/" folder. You should place this folder in thesame folder with your index. html page.



Q: Is this transparent feature there for individual submenu styles or for individual menu items in scrolling menu? I want that.

A: See, you can use "transparent" value instead of any color in the mainmenu parameters and in Individual styles.

  var menuBackColor="transparent";
  var menuBorderColor="transparent";
  var itemBackColor=["transparent","transparent"];
  var itemBorderColor=["transparent","transparent"];
  var moveColor="transparent";
  var shadowColor="transparent";

  var itemStyles = [
["itemBackColor=transparent,transparent","itemBorderColor=transparent,transparent"],
];

  var menuStyles = [
["menuBackColor=transparent","menuBorderColor=transparent"],
];
