Q: Hello, I am trying out your dhtml menu and would like to load an iframe into one of the menus, how would I go about this?


A: If you want to insert <iframe> object inside a menu item you can do following things.

You can paste any html code into menu items, for example:

["item text <iframe src="link"></iframe>", link, ...]


Q: How does one go about changing the parameter or the menu in java script so that a menu selection stays 'on'?
In other words, the menu remains selected, perhaps in a background color that shows the user this menu choice is selected and the user is in the selected menu area.


A: To save your navigation path you should set the following parameter:

  var saveNavigationPath = 1;
The menu keeps items highlighted during menu navigation.
0 - disabled, 1 - enabled (default).

You can highlight menu items by default in two ways:

1) Set the pressed item on each page idividually using the following parameter:

  var pressedItem = -2;
The toggle mode. Sets an index of an item that will be highlighted by default.
-2 - the toggle mode is disabled;
-1 - the toggle mode is enabled, but no items highlighted by default;0,1,2,3,... - index of highlighted item in a top-level menu.
- delete   var pressedItem=1; parameter from your data file
- set correct parameter on each page before you call data file, for example:

<noscript><a href="http://deluxe-menu.com">Javascript Menu by Deluxe-Menu.com</a></noscript>
<script type="text/javascript">  var dmWorkPath = "menudir/";</script >
<script type="text/javascript" src="menudir/dmenu.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">  var pressedItem=2;</script>
...
<script type="text/javascript" src="menudir/data.js"></script>

2) Set the pressed item/subitem using dm_ext_setPressedItem () function.

Q: The submenu should look identical to the main menu but it is not allowing this.
Even though parameters are set to 0 it is showing smart scroll and also not showing the sub menus how they should be.
I also notice and error in the templates window view when I am looking at the javascript onmouseover menu.


A: You've set the exact width for your submenus:

  var smHeight="21px"; // it is the height of the whole submenu

It is not right.

Try to write:
  var smHeight="";

> I also notice and error in the templates window view when I am looking
> at the menu.

Now you have:

  var pressedItem="";

It is not correct. Try to set:

  var pressedItem="-2";

See the attached example.


Q: I need to load a tab page and have the correct javascript menu rollover tab showing based on a variable that is available when the page loads. How do I get the tab to change to a different tab then the one defined in the configuration file?

Example

bmenuItem = 0; /* this is the default */

When my page reloads I want bmenuItem = someVariable;

How do I do this?

A: Deluxe Tabs doesn't support API functions which can return theselected javascript menu rollover tab.

You can set "bselectedItem" and "  var bselectedSmItem" parametersbased on your link before you call your data file.

For example, move "  var bselectedItem" and "  var bselectedSmItem" parametersfrom your data file to your code.

<TD vAlign=top align=left>
/* Select Tab */
<script type="text/javascript" language="JavaScript1.2">
  var bselectedItem=<?php echo $seltabs; ?>;
  var bselectedSmItem=<?php echo $selsmtabs; ?>;
</script>
<SCRIPT src="data.js" type=text/javascript></SCRIPT>
</TD>

You should define seltabs and selsmtabs using server side script.

You can also set it on every page before you call data.js file, forexample:

<TD vAlign=top align=left>
/* Select Tab */
<script type="text/javascript" language="JavaScript1.2">
  var bselectedItem=4;
  var bselectedSmItem=3;
</script>
<SCRIPT src="data.js" type=text/javascript></SCRIPT>
</TD>
