Q: What I would like to see is the ability to have a base site navigation menu with all the definitional entries (size, locations, icons, etc.) defined but all the menuitems be called from an Ajax file.

A: You cannot use ajax submenus for the top items.
But you can use several .js file, for example:

params.js //file with all menu parameters (size, locations, icons, etc.)
all code before
  var menuItems = [
...
];
dm_init();

data_ajax1.js //data files for ajax submenus
data_ajax2.js
data_ajax3.js
...

main_data.js - data file with the following code:

  var menuItems = [
["Item 1","", "", "", "", "", "0", "0", "data_ajax1.js", "", "", ],
["Item 2","", "", "", "", "", "0", "0", "data_ajax2.js", "", "", ],
["Item 3","", "", "", "", "", "0", "0", "data_ajax3.js", "", "", ],
["Item 4","", "", "", "", "", "0", "0", "data_ajax4.js", "", "", ],
];
dm_init();

You can also place this code into your html page directly (in the place where you want tohave a menu):

<script type="text/javascript">
  var menuItems = [
["Item 1","", "", "", "", "", "0", "0", "data_ajax1.js", "", "", ],
["Item 2","", "", "", "", "", "0", "0", "data_ajax2.js", "", "", ],
["Item 3","", "", "", "", "", "0", "0", "data_ajax3.js", "", "", ],
["Item 4","", "", "", "", "", "0", "0", "data_ajax4.js", "", "", ],
];
dm_init();


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 want to use single css drop down menu bar for each page without applying HTML Code for each page separatly.I mean to use CSS Menu as per our .JS Menu.

A: Unfortunately it is not possible with css menu.

On each page you should call css file with styles:

<link href="menu.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />

and add code for the menu on each page in the place where you want to have a menu, forexample:

<ul class="cssMenu cssMenum">
<li class=" cssMenui"><a class=" cssMenui" href="testlink.html">Home</a></li>
<li class=" cssMenui"><a class=" cssMenui" href="#"><span><img class="def" src="default.files/icon1.gif"/>
<img class="over" src="default.files/icon1o.gif">Product Info</span>
<![if gt IE 6]></a><![endif]><!--[if lte IE 6]><table><tr><td><![endif]-->
<ul class=" cssMenum">
<li class=" cssMenui"><a class=" cssMenui" href="testlink.html"><img class="def" src="default.files/icon2.gif"/>
<img class="over" src="default.files/icon2o.gif">Features</a></li>
</ul>
<!--[if lte IE 6]></td></tr></table></a><![endif]-->lt;/li>
<li class=" cssMenui"><a class=" cssMenui" href="testlink.htm">
<img class="def" src="default.files/icon1.gif"/>
<img class="over" src="default.files/icon1o.gif">Contact Us</a></li>
</ul>

You can also try to use frames.
Also you can use aserver-side script (php, asp, vb, etc.) to generate html pages fromtemplates on your server.
