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 Dawntree Template

Q: How can I vary the width of the individual items (Home, Product Info etc) on the main menu bar?


A: I'm not sure I understand you. You want to use different width (exactwidth) for the main items?

You can use Individual Styles to set the width for the menu items.Please, use Deluxe Tuner to create your individual styles.

You should write for example so:

  var itemStyles = [
["itemWidth=98px"], // style 0
["itemWidth=100px"], // style 1
["itemWidth=110px"], // style 2
["itemWidth=120px"], // style 3
["itemWidth=95px"], // style 4
];
  var menuItems = [

Q: I am investigating why a few things have not been working for sometime on our site.

This is the error I get in the console "The requested URL /js/menudir/dtree_ss.js was not found on this server."

I update the files awhile back and removed the dtress_ss.js as I was instructed, why is it that it that the script is still trying to reference this file?

What do I have to do to remove this error from java script tree menu?

When I updated the files a few months back the new files seem to fix a problem we were having with Chrome, but broke the drop down menu in Explorer. I have yet to resolve this. The drop down menu appears to work fine in all other browsers.

The nav menu not working in IE7 (not sure about IE6 or IE8) is a bigger issue than the error in the console, but thought maybe they were related. From our analytics, the strong majority of our customers are using IE7.

A: 1) dtree_ss.js
The current version of Javascript/DHTML Tree doesn't have dtree_ss.js at all. You should deletethe following code from your page:
<script language="JavaScript1.2" src="/js/menudir/dtree_ss.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

In the body tag you should write:
<td >
<script src="/js/menudir/data-tree.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
</td>

In the HEAD tag you should write:

<!-- Javascript/DHTML Tree -->
<noscript><a href="http://deluxe-tree.com">java script tree menu by Deluxe-Tree.com</a></noscript>
<script type="text/javascript">  var tWorkPath="/js/menudir/";</script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="/js/menudir/dtree.js"></script>
<!-- (c) 2009, http://deluxe-tree.com -->

2) Error in IE7.
You're using new engine files and old data files for the menus now.
I'm sending you the example.
Use engine files for JavaScript Tree Menu and Javascript/DHTML Tree and data files (data.js and data-tree.js)from it.


Q: > Does you tree menu php support right-to-left layout? that is to say it opens thebranches/submenus from the right to left .

A: Yes it is possible to create a menu for right-to-left languages with Javascript/DHTML Tree in the same way as in standard htmlcode.
Please, set <HTML dir="rtl">.

You should set the following parameters:

  var titemAlign="right";
  var ticonAlign="right";
  var texpandBtnAlign="right";

JavaScript Tree Menu support right-to-left languages.
In JavaScript Tree Menu you can set the following parameter:
  var dmRTL = 1;

Set this parameter to 1 if you're using right-to-left direction of html page <HTML dir=rtl>.


Q: I have 6 menu items that are ALL graphics...they can't just be background images because they all have graphic text, so the rollovers are unique to each menu item. I just need it to function like a typical rollover with images.


A: Yes, you can create such menu.

You should write your menu items in the following way:
["","", "images/vista1/btn_black.gif", "images/vista1/btn_black_blue.gif", , , , , , ],
["","", "images/vista1/btn_black.gif", "images/vista1/btn_black_blue.gif", , , , , , ],
