Q: We are registered users of the JavaScript Tree Menu software. Today I tried to use the Javascript API, but there is something I do not understand and want to ask for support.

First, I set up a very simple menu:

  var menuItems=[
['Menu 1'],
['|Submenu 1'],
['Menu 2'],
['|Submenu 2'],
];

This menu is built via dm_init().

Then, I inspect the menu (in Firebug):

>>> dm_ext_getSubmenuParams(0, 0)
["dm0m0", 2, "", 0, 1]
>>> dm_ext_getSubmenuParams(0, 1)
["dm0m1", 1, "dm0m0i0", 1, 0]
>>> dm_ext_getSubmenuParams(0, 2)
["dm0m2", 1, "dm0m0i1", 1, 0]

Ok, there are three submenus. Now I am going to delete one of them:

>>> dm_ext_deleteItem(0, 0, 1)

"Menu 2" disappears on the screen, this works as expected. But now when I re-inspect the menu using the API, I find that the API reports exactly the same as before:

>>> dm_ext_getSubmenuParams(0, 0)
["dm0m0", 2, "", 0, 1]
>>> dm_ext_getSubmenuParams(0, 1)
["dm0m1", 1, "dm0m0i0", 1, 0]
>>> dm_ext_getSubmenuParams(0, 2)
["dm0m2", 1, "dm0m0i1", 1, 0]

So, it seems the report function continues to know about the original menu structure and reflects it. Am I using the API in a wrong way?

The problem I want to solve is to remove the entire menu dinamico dhtml, in order to rebuild it dynamically. Because I did not see a function aimed to this functionality, my plan was to delete all main menu entries subsequently until the main menu inspector no longer reports an entry. Is there (a better) way to achieve this?

A: Unfortunately, dm_ext_deleteItem() only change visibility of theseitems.

It doesn't delete them completely.

We'll try to fix it in the next versions of JavaScript Tree Menu.



Q: We're looking to purchase the developer's license for the Deluxe menu/Tuner program and are not sure which to get. It shows one that doesn't contain the dhtml scripts source code and one that does. What is the importance of having the javascript source code? Will the program not work correctly if you don't have it?

A: See in Single Website License, Multiple Website License and DeveloperLicense our source code is obfuscated.
And in Developer License with Javascript Source Code you can see thecode and change it.

But we DO NOT provide technical support for modified source code.


Q: In my page are links in subfolders (for example /ergebnisse/2006/test.htm). When I call a page in a subfolder, in first time this page is shown correctly. The next page I call could not found. I belief the pointer is in the subfolder an so the page could not found.


A: 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: Is there any way I can do the opposite and make the space my separators take up only a few pixels high? At present I can only make them the same height as the other buttons even though the separator image is only 2 pixels high.


A: You should set a separator in the menuItems, for example:

  var menuItems = [
["Home","index.cfm", , , , , , , , ],
["-"],
["About Us","about.cfm", , , , , , , , ],

];

Please, see the following parameters:

//--- Separators
  var separatorImage=""; //for subitems
  var separatorWidth="100%";
  var separatorHeight="3px";
  var separatorAlignment="right";
  var separatorVImage="images/public/separator.gif"; //for the top items
  var separatorVWidth="100%";
  var separatorVHeight="2px";
  var separatorPadding="";
