Javascript Tree Menu. Expandable Menu.

  • You can set default expanded/collapsed items and submenus.
  • After clicking on menu item selected item becomes highlighted.
  • When the submenu is larger than the visible area of the page the submenu will be automatically decreased. To see all the submenu items you do not need to use scrollbars or something like that - just put your mouse to the bottom of a submenu and it will be automatically scrolled! You can also specify height and width for each separate submenu.
  • There is no need to write additional code on a server side to remember what items were expanded/collapsed. Javascript/DHTML Tree can save items state automatically!

Q: How can I upgrade to JavaScript Tree Menu v2.0? Now I'm using v1.14.


A: How to upgrade to v2.00
---------------------------------------------------------------
You can download the licensed engine .js files from the same link in your license message.
JavaScript Tree Menu v2.00 has new parameters and features.
To upgrade to v2.00 you should do the following.

Step 1.
    1.1 For Windows users
      a. Run Deluxe Tuner v2.0
      (can be found in the trial menu package v2.0
      http://deluxe-menu.com/deluxe-menu.zip).
      b. Open menu data file (.js file where menu parameters are placed):
select File/Open…
      c. Save the file: select File/Save, then click "No" button when the dialog box appears.

    1.2 For other OS users
      a. Open menu data file (.js file where menu parameters are placed) in a text editor.
      b. Make sure that the following variables exist in the data file:

        var keystrokes = 0;
        var dm_focus = 1;
        var dm_actKey = 113;

        var dynamic = 0;
        var smHideOnClick = 1;
        var itemAlignTop = 'left';
        var smSmartScroll = 1;

        var dmAJAX = 0;
        var dmAJAXCount = 30;
        var dmRTL = 0;
        var dmObjectsCheck = 0;
        var menuBackRepeat = "repeat";
        var menuHeight = "";
        var transDuration2 = 200;

If one of the variables doesn't exist - add it at the beginning of the file.

They are:

      - dmenu_dyn.js
      - dmenu_key.js

Replace all old .js files by the files from v2.00.

Q: JavaScript Tree Menu supports keyboard navigation eg. CTRL+F2 to activate menu.

Why does Deluxe Tabs not have the same feature?

I would like to use both java script navigation menu systems on the same page, and both need to have keyboard navigation for accessibility reasons.

A: Unfortunately it is really so, Javascript/DHTML Tree and Deluxe Tabs doesn'thave such a feature now.

We'll try to add this feature in the next versions of the java script navigation menu.
