Q: I want to change the background color of one of the menu items of the menu horizontal.If I understand correctly I go to INDIVIDUAL STYLES and should be able tochange the background color for one of the menu items there. Under item appearance I tried to change itemBackColor - but I can't seem to make it take affect (I tried clicking OK but its under the Style Names, so thats probably not it.

Please advise.

A: You should click "Edit Individual Styles" button.

On the 'Item Styles' tab click "Add style" button.

Set itemBackColor and click "OK" button.

Select the item you want to change the style for and assign new style for it. Go to Item Parameters window 'Item style' field.

  var itemStyles = [
["itemBackColor=#EB2999,#590937"], //style0
];

  var menuItems = [
["Home","testlink.html", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", ],
["Product Info","", "default.files/icon1.gif", "default.files/icon1o.gif", "", "", "0", "", "", "", "", ], //style0



Q: I would like to add a javascript link but cannot seem to get it handle the event as a tag or onclick event. I just want to grab the current page, insert it into a string, and go off to the page it specifies. Can this be done?


A: You're able to use Javascript for each item, for example:

  var menuitems = [
["item text", "javascript:your_code_here"]
];

Unfortunately, you can't assign onmouseover/onClick event to each item.
However, you can achieve this by using standard html objects within items, for example:

  var menuitems = [
["<div onClick='your_code_here'>item text</div>", "index.html"]
];


Q: I need to be able to highlight the selected menu item of the currentpage in the html tree menu.
Is there a way to do this?

A: Please, try to set this parameters:

  var ttoggleMode = 1; Enables a toggle-mode. 0 - disabled, 1 - items stay highlighted after mouse click.
  var tpressedFontColor = "#AA0000";


Q: Can I use data from a SQL server using ASP for drop down menu code?

A: You may generate a menu from a database or XML using any server-side script, e.g., PHP, ASP, VB, etc.
However, these scripts don't work inside of Javascript .js files,
so, you should move parameters of a menu from a .js file into an html-page, e.g.:

<!-- JavaScript Tree Menu -->
<noscript><a href="http://deluxe-menu.com">Javascript Menu by Deluxe-Menu.com</a></noscript>
<script type="text/javascript">  var dmWorkPath = "menudir/";</script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="menudir/dmenu.js"></script>
<!-- (c) 2006, http://deluxe-menu.com -->

<script type="text/javascript" language="JavaScript1.2">
// and describe parameters of a menu
  var parameter1=value1;
  var parameter2=value2;
etc.

  var menuItems = [
// here you generate items using server-side scripts (php, asp, vb, etc.)
];


Unfortunately we don't have examples with ASP and SQL.
The example of the menu working with PHP/MYSQL you can find here:
