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!

Q: I'm using your menu for my customers.

IHtml menu script works really great but since your last updates I'm really missing the parameter smviewtype=3, so I can have a subnavigation going other direction as usual.

Since you had this feature build in I choosed your menu and did a lot of programming, to get it integrated into contenido cms system.

I would be very pleased, if you could help me on this point.

A: You should set the way you show submenus using subMenuAlign and subMenuVAlign parameters.See more info here:

Q: I'm am try to use your Deluxe drop down menu generator and can not get it to work..

A: Unfortunately we don't have step by step tutorial yet.
We'll try to create it in the nearest time.

1. Create your menu in Deluxe Tuner.

When you open Deluxe Tuner you can click "File/New"and add items and subitems using buttons "Add Item" and "Add Subitem" onthe main window.
You should set items and subitems parameters on the "Item Parameters"window.
See also other parameters for the menu on the main window.

More info about menu parameters you can find on our site
http://deluxe-menu.com/parameters-info.html
http://deluxe-menu.com/menu-items-info.html

You can also use Individual Styles for items and subitems
http://deluxe-menu.com/individual-item-styles-info.html
http://deluxe-menu.com/individual-submenu-styles-info.html

2. You should install the menu on your page.
You can click, for example, File/Export to HTML.

So, you'll have folder with all engine files and images("Deluxe-menu.files/" folder by default), Deluxe-menu.html file anddata-Deluxe-menu.js file with all menu parameters.

Open Deluxe-menu.html file in any text editor and copy several rows ofcode into your page (for example index.html page of your website).

Copy and paste several rows into your html page (index.html).

<head>
...
<!-- JavaScript Tree Menu -->
<noscript><a href="http://deluxe-menu.com">drop down menu generator by deluxe-menu.com</a></noscript>
<script type="text/javascript">  var WorkPath="Deluxe-menu.files/";</script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="Deluxe-menu.files/dmenu.js"></script>
...
</head>

<body>
...
<table>
<tr><td><script type="text/javascript" src="Deluxe-menu.files/data-Deluxe-menu.js"></script></td></tr> //data-Deluxe-menu.js - data file
created in
Deluxe Tuner.
</table>
...
</body>

You should also copy "Deluxe-menu.files/" folder with all engine files
dmenu.js
dmenu4.js
dmenu_add.js
dmenu_dyn.js
dmenu_key.js
dmenu_cf.js
dmenu_popup.js
dmenu_ajax.js
dmenu_search.js
and data-Deluxe-menu.js file into the same folder with your index.html page.

Try that.


Q: I'm a having an issue with my dhtml dropdown menus poping-up behind a flash object on a page. The key to this issue is that the menus work perfectly in our non-secure (HTTP) development environment, but do not work correctly on our secure (HTTPS) beta environment. The code on the 2 environments is exactly the same, and the beta environment does work when viewed in HTTP. Both the flash object and the Deluxe-Menu are called using relative paths, not absolute paths.

Please let me know what additional information you need from me. I appreciate any help you can provide.

A: Check that you're using latest version of engine files - v3.3.

You should add "opaque" parameter for <object> and <embed> tags.

See, how you should install flash on your pages.
<object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,0,0" height="150"
width="732" name="if-header">
<param name="movie" value="images/flash/if-header.swf">
<param name="quality" value="best">
<param name="play" value="true">
<param name="wmode" value="opaque">
<embed height="150" name="if-header" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" src="images/flash/if-header.swf" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="732"
quality="best" wmode="opaque" play="true">
</object>


Q: I need a menu system where on the click of certain items, server side code on the page can be called and executed. Can that be done using deluxe menu?

A: You can use your own Javascript code instead standard links. For example:

  var menuItems = [
["text", "javascript:your_code_here"]
];
