Q: When the html tab menu is initialized can you not have any selected tabs?
I do not want to select any tabs when the menu is initialized for some cases.

A: No, unfortunately it is not possible. Some top item should behighlighted.

But you can try to add separator in the beginning of the menu and set:
  var bselectedItem=0;
  var bseparatorWidth="0px";

  var bmenuItems = [
["-",],
["   Deluxe Menu","content1", "img/icon_ie.gif", "img/icon_ie.gif", "img/icon_ie.gif", "", "", "", "", ],
["   Deluxe Tree","content2", "img/icon_ie.gif", "img/icon_ie.gif", "img/icon_ie.gif", "", "", "", "", ],
["   Deluxe Tabs","content3", "img/icon_ie.gif", "img/icon_ie.gif", "img/icon_ie.gif", "", "", "", "", ],

Q: When doing a multi-frame frameset (1 top frame, 2 bottom frames) like this:

<frameset ID="frames" ONLOAD="getBottom()" ROWS="50, *" BORDER="0" FRAMEBORDER="no" FRAMESPACING="0">
   <frame NAME="frmTop" SRC="top.htm" MARGINHEIGHT=0 MARGINWIDTH=0 SCROLLING=NO NORESIZE FRAMEBORDER="0" />
    <frameset ID="bottomFrames" cols="171,*">
     <frame name="frmLeft" src="left.htm" MARGINHEIGHT=0 MARGINWIDTH=0 SCROLLING=NO NORESIZE FRAMEBORDER="0"/>
     <frame name="frmMain" MARGINHEIGHT=0 MARGINWIDTH=0 SCROLLING=NO NORESIZEFRAMEBORDER="0" />
    </frameset>
</frameset>


And using the dm_frameinit like this:
dm_initFrame("[object]", 0, 2, 0);

it works fine in IE -> the menus are displayed exactly under the text and in the bottom right frame.

However, in Firefox, the menu drop down is displayed to the right of the top menu text, and exactly the number of pixels as the width of the left frame.

Perhaps there needs to be some FireFox checking to fix this?
Can you help me with that?


A: The problem is in a structure of your frameset.
Mozilla browsers can't determine absolute coordinates for a frame, sosubmenus drop down with an offset.

You should create the following frameset structure:

 --|------------
   | menu
 --|------------
   |
   | submenus
   |

Now a top row has 2 columns and all browsers can determine awidth of the 1st column in the second row.


Q: I place all of my files in folders.  If I want the Deluxe menu to work I have to have the Deluxe menu saved in each folder for it to work with the files inside those folders. 


A: There is no need to copy al files for the menu in each folder.

To install the menu you can use such paths:

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

You can use additional parameters to make menu paths absolute:

  var pathPrefix_img = "http://domain.com/images/";
  var pathPrefix_link = "http://domain.com/pages/";

These parameters allow to make images and links paths absolute.
For example:

  var pathPrefix_img = "http://domain.com/images/";
  var pathPrefix_link = "http://domain.com/pages/";

  var menuItems = [
["text", "index.html", "icon1.gif", "icon2.gif"],
];

So, link path will be look so:
http://domain.com/pages/index.html

Images paths will be look so:
http://domain.com/images/icon1.gif
http://domain.com/images/icon2.gif

Please, try to use these parameters.


Q: I want to activate script pop up by a hyperlink.

A: Drop down menu items is an array of arrays. It has the following structure:

  var menuItems = [
[text, link, iconNormal, iconOver, tip, target, itemStyleInd, submenuStyleInd, jsFilename],
[text, link, iconNormal, iconOver, tip, target, itemStyleInd, submenuStyleInd, jsFilename],
...
];

where target is target for an item link.
Available values: _self, _blank, _parent, _search, _top.

So you can set the target value _blank for the items you need.

For example:

  var menuItems = [

["Home","testlink.html", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", ],
["Product Info","", "deluxe-menu.files/icon1.gif", "deluxe-menu.files/icon1o.gif", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", ],
 ["|Features","http://deluxe-menu.com", "", "", "", "_blank", "", "", "", "", "", ],

];
