Recent Questions Css Tree Menu Tutorial

Q: We are using the javascript drop down menu code to create an external link. The absolute path is recognised but it does not work. At the bottom of the page the browser displays an "error on page" message and nothing happens.

A: Now you have

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


The second call for dmWorkPath is incorrect. Delete it. So you'llhave:

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

Your menu will work correctly.



Q: I would like to add the javascript API to a link contained in my website that will have the corresponding item in the deluxe-tree menu act as if it was "clicked".

Presumably I need to add the script (for example) <A HREF="http://deluxe-menu.com/features-info.html" TARGET="_self" "..javascriptHere ..">. Can you give me an example please of what code goes into there.

I presume I use dm_ext_setPressedItem (menuInd, submenuInd, itemInd, recursion) but where do I get the ????Ind data from and make the javascript call in the above link.

A copy of a working example together with where to get the data , perhaps on your own web pages, would help.

A: Javascript/DHTML Tree doesn't save a presseditem as it saves a tree state. It works within 1 page only and if youreload the page you should set a pressed item using Javascript API:

function dtreet_ext_setPressedItem (menuInd, itemID)

<script type="text/javascript">

  var i = <?php echo $selitem; ?>;
onload=setPressed;
function setPressed()
{
dtreet_ext_setPressedItem(0,dtreet_ext_getItemIDByIndex(0, i));
}

</script>
You should define selitem using server side script.



Q: I have seen a certain menu effect on a few websites and have so far been unable to reproduce it in simply HTML/CSS. Today I saw the effect on a website, looked at the source code and it appears they are using some of your code.

I have a fairly typical screen layout with a menu bar on the left hand 10% of the screen and the main screen content on the right 90%. Some of my screens get very long, so that when you scroll all the way down to the bottom, the menu is left way up off screen. I would like the menu block to move down so that it is always a certain number of pixels below the top of the viewed screen, not the absolute top of the page. Is this something your software does? If so, which one of your products?


A: You can create such menu with JavaScript Tree Menu.
You should use floatable menu, so you can always see the menu.
But to use the floatable feature

  var floatable=1;

you should use the absolute position for the menu

  var absolutePos=1;
  var posX="10";
  var posY="10";

Please, try the trial version of the menu.


Q: Irene, thank you. I am working on seeing what you did and trying to get it to work on my computer. I keep getting ActiveX blocking errors when open page with the drop down menu source code on my computer. Is this something I can control from within the html code? Or is this something each user is going to have to change setting(s) in their IE Internet Options?

p.s., I had the code on the page twice cuz was just trying to get something... anything.... to work. I deleted the 2nd set which was further down on the page. I'm trying to get the menus to appear in the grey band just below the blue heading section but prior to the white text description section. And, once I get the menus to work, the navigation bar on left will be deleted. Thank you so much for your patience and help!

A: You can get the following message
"To help protect your security in IE ..."
on your local machine only. You won't have such message when you openyour website via Internet.

If you don't want to see this message you should do the followingthings:

Tools/Internet Options/Advanced Options/

and set
"Allow active content from files to run on My Computer".

Close Internet Explorer and open it once again.
There will be no such message any more.
