    Don't allow your website visitors to get lost. Try Javascript/DHTML Tree Menu!

Recent Questions Drop Down Tree Menu Rails Tutorial

Q: All links in navigation bar examples open in a new window even when they're configured to open in the same page (or another frame).

A: Check the following parameters:
  var itemTarget="_self";

["menu item","link.htm", "", "","Tip", "_self", "", "", "", "", "", ],

Q: In my previous email asking about your menu program's ability to display a different color word on a menu item when the site is on that selected page, I made a mistake - I was experimenting with Vista xp1 style, the black/blue shiny dhtml menu templates.


A: The menu has only two states normal and mouseover. We'll try to add the pressed state in the future.

You can set a pressed item using Javascript API:

function dm_ext_setPressedItem (menuInd, submenuInd, itemInd, recursion)

Sets a current pressed item.
menuInd - index of a menu on a page, >= 0.
submenuInd - index of a submenu, >= 0.
itemInd - index of an item, >=0.
recursion = true/false - highlight parent items.

But notice, to use dm_ext_setPressedItem() you should know ID of selected item and subitem.
You can't get this ID after you reload your page. That is why you should write your own code on PHP.


Q: The secondary javascript menu style sub menu under Aircraft doesn't line up the same as in Tuner..

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:

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

Now a second row has 3 columns and all browsers can determine a width of the 1st column in the second row.


Q: I pushed the js files you attached and it fixed my Trial error message but now my left menus APPLMENU.JS and APPL2MENU.JS won't mouse over and won't open the submenus and it gives a javascript error.


A: Now you have several errors in you data files appl2menu.js andapplmenu.js.

Now you have
  var menuBackColor="cccccc";
  var menuBorderWidth="";
  var itemBorderWidth="";

This is not right.
Try to write them:
  var menuBackColor="#CCCCCC";
  var menuBorderWidth="0"; //this parameter cannot be empty
  var itemBorderWidth="0"; //this parameter cannot be empty
