Recent Questions Arrow Gif Tree Menu

Q: We have several problems with your menu.
Notice when trying to select a drop down item…the item disappears, rather than holding in place as the mouse is over the menu item.

Second, we’d like to know how to expand the width of the main headers and sub headers. Currently, they are not of the same width.

Lastly, we’d like to change the font and load new fonts to match the branding of the menu items.
Please let us know where we can find instructions to make these modifications/customizations.


A: Please, try to write your menuItems parameter correctly.
You should set "iconOver" parameter for each item (you can set "").
Please, see how you should write your menuItems:

["","index.php","nav_home_out.gif","nav_home_over.gif","","_self","0",,,],
["","","nav_experience_out.gif","nav_experience_over.gif","","_self","0",,,],
     ["|Contestants","experience_contestants.php","","","_self","2",,,],
...

You should use Individual styles, for example:

  var itemStyles = [
["itemWidth=120px","arrowImageMain=image1,image2=home_out.gif,home_over.gif"],     // style 0
["itemBorderWidth=2","itemBorderStyle=solid,solid", "itemBorderColor=#AA0000,#0000FF"],     // style 1
["fontStyle=bold 12px Arial,Helvetica", "fontDecoration=none,underline"],     // style 2
];

  var menuItems = [
["","index.php","nav_home_out.gif","nav_home_over.gif","","_self","0",,,],
    ["","","nav_experience_out.gif","nav_experience_over.gif","","_self","0",,,],
...

For submenus you should set the following parameter:

  var smWidth="150px";

> Lastly, we’d like to change the font and load new
> fonts to match the branding of the menu items.

You should also use Individual styles.
But you should set this parameter:

  var fontStyle="";
And then use different fonts for your items.


Q: I am using cross frame menu dropdown. I have three frames: Top, Left and main (middle).

I am using the script and data from your sample file; it works fine. Only problem is submenu is offset to the right. It does not show up exactly down below the top menu.

What could be the problem?

A: JavaScript Tree Menu doesn't work correctly (incorrect submenu position) if youhave complex frame structure.

The problem is in a structure of your frameset.
Mozilla browsers can't determine absolute coordinates for a frame, so submenus drop down with an offset.

You should create, for example, the following frameset structure:

--|------------
   | menu
--|------------
   |
   | submenus
   |

Now a top row has 2 columns and all browsers can determine a width of the 1st column in the second row.

You should write init function in the following way in that case:
dm_initFrame("mainframe",1,3,0);



Q: What I meant was that there is an API function dm_ext_changeItem that allows you to specify 8 dropdown menu parameters in an array. What if I only want to change one of them like the link for example? What do I specify in my function call to leave the other 7 parameters unchanged? Do I specify the existing values? Or, can I just put in a comma with no parameter? That would be a lot easier. Thank you.

A: You should specify only dropdown menu parameters you want to change.

You should just put a commas with no parameters, for example:

dm_ext_changeItem(0, 0, 1, ["JavaScript Tree Menu Info", "", "", "", "JavaScript Tree Menu Hint",,"1"]);


Q: Compliments on your product, I particularly enjoy the complete set of gui and java, that allows for the quick changes.

After a couple of months of using the trial, I have now purchased it and installed the license.

My question however regards the performance of the menu. Using firebug I note that my deluxe menu .js are the performance bottlenecks, It appears as if they are not being cached and it appears that collecting them is taking longer then the other .js files. What can I do to optimize the load time of the javascript multi level menu and prevent, reloading it from the server with every page reload. The apache has set the expiry correct I believe, as I understand from the header.

A: You can try to use AJAX technology.

AJAX-like technology: data for submenus can be loaded "on-the-fly" from the server.

New parameter:
  var tajax = 0/1; - disables/enables AJAX-like support

Current syntax for item parameters (  var tmenuItems):
[text, link, iconNormal, iconOver, iconExpanded, tip, target, itemStyleInd, itemXPStyleInd, jsFileName]

Where jsFileName - .js filename on the server with submenu items (  var tmenuItems).
