Recent Questions Drop Down Tree Menu Rails TutorialQ: I'd like to create a tabbed menu which has about 9 or 10 main tabs.
I'd like to conserve the horizontal space, and wrap the menu after 4 or 5 tabs to have two rows of main tabs. Some tabs have sub menus, some don't.
The first main tab has about 10 items, and I'd like the user to be able to click on that main tab to see the 10 items.
I was going along splendidly with tab mode on. Then I get too far to the right and want to wrap.
hence that is why I want two rows, and apparently need to add the $ to wrap the menu around to a second row.
Do I need to use two tab menus to accomplish this?
A: This doesn't work in TabMode=1.
I suppose that it will be better to use two menus on the page.
Q: Maybe have some code that would tell the tree menu html to expand on that particular page?
A: On your pages you should call the following function/functions to expand/highlight items,
dtreet_ext_expandItem (dtreet_ext_getItemIDByIndex (0, 0), 1);
dtreet_ext_setPressedItem (0, dtreet_ext_getItemIDByIndex (0, 1));
Q: As a part-time webdeveloper I have gotten very interested in your product. I really appreciate a number of things
- it's very flexible
- it's very easy to work with
- examples nicely show the capabilities
But I have a couple of questions:
- When opening a menu, there is an option for keeping the menu-item that has been pressed hightlighed (so that the user can see what he/she pressed). Is it possible, programmatically, to decide when this highlighting should be removed? The scenario is that, when a menu-item is clicked the used might browse for a couple of pages within the context defined by the menu-item, but when the user leaves, the menu-item should no longer be highlighted. I will (programmatically) decide the context, but is it possible for me to interact with the menu, and for example decide explicitly which menu should be highlighted?
- Our design department would like the menu containing the elements: "Skovdrift, Juletreer, Skovrejsning, etc". Please notice that "Brende" is supposed to show a menu item that is hightlighted. Is is possible to create this menu such that it is dynamic and each item is text-based (and not based on two pictures for each menu-entry: hightlighted and not)? I've been wondering how to solve this problem, but I cannot figure out a solution. The problem that I is stuck at, is how organise this speciel "frame" around each menu-element. Something that be partly accomplished using "arrowImageMain", but that does not bring me all the way. Please notice that the menu-items might not have any sub-menu.
A: I suppose that you're saying about
Defines an item that will appear in the highlighted state
(-2 - normal mode, -1 - toggle mode is active, but highlighted item not defined, 0,1,2,3,... - # of pressed item including separators)
This parameter will not approach you.
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: Is there a way to get text to wrap on a tree menu rather then have scroll bars if the text is wider then the area?
A: To wrap your text you can use the following parameter:
you can also use standard <br> tags.
["|Home aaaa aaaaaa aaaaaa<br>aaa aaaaaaaaaaa","testlink.htm", "default.files/icon1_s.gif", "default.files/icon1_so.gif", "", "Home Page Tip", "", "", "", ],
