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: I am evaluating your product and would like to display my top menu without a border, but have the dropdown (child menus) all have a border and shadow.
If I change the menuBorderWidth to anything but 0, I get a menu on both the top menus and dropdowns. I need a topBorderWidth and a childBorderWidth.

Is there any way to accomplish this?


A: Yes, you can do it.

Please, set:

  var menuBorderWidth=0;

To set border for submenus you should use Individual Submenu styles, for example:

  var menuStyles = [
     ["menuBorderWidth=1","menuBorderColor=#9A9CA7"], //style 0
];

  var menuItems = [

     ["Home","testlink.html", , , , , , , , ],
     ["Product Info","", "default.files/icon1.gif", "default.files/icon1o.gif", , , , , , ],
          ["|Features","testlink.html", "default.files/icon2.gif", "default.files/icon2o.gif", , , , "0", , ], //style 0
     ["Samples","", "default.files/icon1.gif", "default.files/icon1o.gif", , , , , , ],
          ["|Sample 1","testlink.html", "default.files/icon6.gif", "default.files/icon6o.gif", , , , "0", , ], //style 0
          ["|Sample 2 is Disabled","testlink.html", "default.files/icon6.gif", "default.files/icon6o.gif", , "_", , "-1", , ],
...

You should assign style for the first item in the submenu.


Q: Last, I couldn't solve the issue I meet when I set up a long name for an dhtml side menu item: next item overlaps. Is it possible to specify the width of an item?

A: You can try to use the following dhtml side menu parameters to use combinedbackground for your items:

  var beforeItemImage = [,]; //left-side image for normal and mouse over state
  var itemBackImage = [,]; //background or image for normal and mouse over state
  var afterItemImage = [,]; //right-side image for normal and mouse over state
  var beforeItemImageW = '';
  var afterItemImageW = '';
  var beforeItemImageH = '';
  var afterItemImageH ='';

But you should create a small images in any Graph Editor, for example:
button_n_back.gif
button_n_left.gif
button_n_right.gif
button_o_back.gif
button_o_left.gif
button_o_right.gif
