Q: I want to change the background color of one of the menu items of the menu horizontal.If I understand correctly I go to INDIVIDUAL STYLES and should be able tochange the background color for one of the menu items there. Under item appearance I tried to change itemBackColor - but I can't seem to make it take affect (I tried clicking OK but its under the Style Names, so thats probably not it.

Please advise.

A: You should click "Edit Individual Styles" button.

On the 'Item Styles' tab click "Add style" button.

Set itemBackColor and click "OK" button.

Select the item you want to change the style for and assign new style for it. Go to Item Parameters window 'Item style' field.

  var itemStyles = [
["itemBackColor=#EB2999,#590937"], //style0
];

  var menuItems = [
["Home","testlink.html", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", ],
["Product Info","", "default.files/icon1.gif", "default.files/icon1o.gif", "", "", "0", "", "", "", "", ], //style0



Q: > You should call the following function:
> dtreet_ext_getItemIDByIndex (0, 12)
> where 12 - is index of the item.

How would I know that 12 is the index of the item? How is itemInd different from its itemID? I assume the menuInd is always 0 for the first menu (or only in my case) menu on a page?


A: Yes, menuInd is the number of the menu on your page (in your casemenuInd=0).

itemInd is the number of the item in your menuItems, for example:

  var tmenuItems =
[
["Home", "http://deluxe-tree.com", "icon1_t.gif", "icon1_to.gif","", "Home Page Tip","_blank"],//itemInd=0

["<img src='data_files/images/sep.gif' width=113 height=1>"],//itemInd=1

["+What's New<br><span id='letter'>This is pretty cool. I need to buy this deluxe menu</span>", "", "icon2_t.gif", "icon2_to.gif", "", "Product Info Tip"],//itemInd=2
 ["|What's New", "testlink.htm", ""], //itemInd=3
 ["|Features", "testlink.htm", ""], //itemInd=4
 ["|Installation", "testlink.htm", ""], //itemInd=5
 ["|Functions", "testlink.htm", ""], //itemInd=6
 ["|Supported Browsers", "testlink.htm", ""], //itemInd=7
["Samples", "", "icon3_t.gif", "icon3_to.gif", "", "Samples Tip"], //itemInd=8
 ["|Sample 1", "testlink.htm", ""], //itemInd=9
 ["|Sample 2", "testlink.htm", ""], //itemInd=10
 ["|Sample 3", "", ""], //itemInd=11
   ["||New Sample 1", "testlink.htm", ""],//itemInd=12
   ["||New Sample 2", "testlink.htm", ""],//itemInd=13



Q: I ran across your site on a search engine and downloaded the trial copy. I am playing around with it and have successfully generated  a menu bar which I wanted to try and test out.  I have followed the directions for installing it on my trial page of my website and can not get it to work. I am not sure what I am doing wrong .  I would truly love to buy this, but even with following the installation instructions, I can not get free javascript drop down menu to work.  I use Dreamweaver to build my site.

A: JavaScript Tree Menu wasn't developed as Dreamweaver/Frontpage extension and wedon't have plug-ins for it. To install the menu into your html page:

1. create and save .js file with your menu parameters in Deluxe Tuner(you can use "File/Save as/HTML" function).
You can enter any name you like, for example enter "menu". So you'llhave menu.html, menu.js files and "menu.files" folder with all menu files.
2. open your .html page in Dreamweaver
3. Copy generated menu.js file and "menu.files/" folder in the same folderwith your index.html page.
4. Open generated menu.html in any text editor and copy several rows of code (<script> tags), For info see:

http://deluxe-menu.com/installation-info.html

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

That's all.


Q: However, when I place it inside a CSS-defined div element (for absolute page placement) the submenu's all drop down a couple hundred pixels.


A: See, the problem is that the script can't get css properties of the object if they are described in separate .css block (or file).In other words, you can't get the value of "POSITION: absolute" attribute of the object if the object doesn't have this property within inline style (style="POSITION:absolute;"). To get the value you should move .css style into style="" attribute.

Please, try to add your
css file -> inline css, for example:

You should add style="POSITION: absolute;"

to the

<div id="menu">

So, you'll have:

<DIV id="menu" style="POSITION: absolute;">
Try that.
