Recent Questions Accordion Tree Menu Tutorial

Q: How do I apply styles to submenu items that are different from the styles of top javascript drop down menu items? For instance, I want to know how to apply background images for the submenus, but not for the menu items. I also want borders around the submenu ITEMS, not just the entire submenu. Here is the link to my page with the menus. The menu I am referring to is the top right hand menu (black with grey).

A: Create Individual Item and Submenu styles and assign it to your submenu items.

  var itemStyles = [

["itemHeight=23px","itemBackImage=deluxe-menu.files/btn_black.gif,deluxe-menu.files/btn_cyan.gif","itemBorderWidth=1","itemBorderStyle=solid,groove","itemBorderColor=#2C2C2C,#FF0000"],
];
  var menuStyles = [
["menuBackColor=transparent","menuBorderWidth=0","menuBorderStyle=none","itemSpacing=0","itemPadding=0px 0px 0px 10px"],
];

["Home","testlink.html", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", ],
["Product Info","", "deluxe-menu.files/icon1.gif", "deluxe-menu.files/icon1o.gif", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", ],
 ["|Features","testlink.html", "", "", "", "", "0", "0", "", "", "", ],

Q: I am attempting to install a menu I've created into FrontPage2003.
I read what the web site says but it didn't seem to work. Any other suggestions?

A: JavaScript Tree Menu wasn't developed as Dreamweaver/Frontpage extension,BUT you can use it as standard Javascript files. To install the menuinto your html page:

1. open the page in your program
2. open html source code of the page
3. add several rows of code (<script> tags), For info see: http://deluxe-menu.com/installation-info.html

That's all.
To create and configure your menus use Deluxe Tuner application
(included into the trial package): http://deluxe-menu.com/deluxe-tuner-info.html



Q: One more question. How can I make the javascript submenus appear much more quickly? They appear but only after mouseing-over the menu and waiting for approximatelyone second.

A: Try to adjust the following parameters:
  var dm_writeAll=0;

  var smShowPause=100;
  var smHidePause=1000;

  var transDuration=150;
  var transDuration2=200;

You can also turn off transitional effects
  var transition=-1;
