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!

Recent Questions Cooljs Tree Sample

Q: I created a custom error page for a site, but the menu would not display.

I found that this was due to the erroneous "current directory" in the bad link test, for a non-existent directory.

which is: level2/level3/

I changed the script code from:
<script type="text/javascript">  var dmWorkPath = "DMworkfiles/";</script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="DMworkfiles/dmenu.js"></script>

to:

<script type="text/javascript">  var dmWorkPath = "DMworkfiles/";</script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="/DMworkfiles/dmenu.js"></script>

adding the "/" before "DMworkfiles/dmenu.js" source reference allowed the .js file to be found in the root directory and the menu would display.

The problem is that the little menu "expansion" arrow .gif cannot be found in the "current working directory" of level2/level3/. just little "blanks" show.

I tried changing:
  var dmWorkPath = "DMworkfiles/";

to:
  var dmWorkPath = "/DMworkfiles/";

but that did not enable the display of the arrows.

I also had to prefix all of the links in the menu with a "/" to indicate the root directory because of the "current directory" for the bad page.

I hope I have explained the problem sufficiently.
What am I doing wrong or missing here?


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: Do you by chance have the dhtml menu samples working with XML?

A: Unfortunately we don't have working example.

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">dhtml menu samples by Deluxe-Menu.com</a></noscript>
<script type="text/javascript">  var dmWorkPath = "menudir/";</script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="menudir/dmenu.js"></script>
<!-- (c) 2008, 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.)
];
</script>

The example of the menu working with PHP/MYSQL you can find here:

Q: Can you please give me an example of how I would return the full path to the selected item of the web site menu?

A: See the following example:

function getFullPath(mInd){
  var result='';

// get pressed item
  var params = dm_ext_getMenuParams(mInd);
if (!(params[2]>=0)) return '';

function getPathForItem(mInd,smInd,itInd){
// get for this item
  var params = dm_ext_getItemParams(mInd,smInd,itInd);
  var result = params[2]+ '('+ params[3]+')';

// find root item id
if (smInd <= 0) return result;
params = dm_ext_getSubmenuParams(mInd,smInd);

for (  var smInd_=0;smInd_ for (  var itInd_=0;itInd_ itParam = dm_ext_getItemParams(mInd,smInd_,itInd_);
if (itParam[0]=arams[2])// id
return result + '->' + getPathForItem(mInd,smInd_,itInd_);
}
}
return result;
};

return getPathForItem(mInd,params[1],params[2]);
}
