Recent Questions Dtree Tutorial

Q: Everything is working quite well -- with the following exception:

I added a button.gif file to my item, hoping that the graphic would appear rather than just a colored cell. (Yes, I did upload the button.gif file to the .files folder.)

My work looks great in the preview window, but still shows the colored cells in my web page (www.misyssbm.com/buy/index.php left side menu). My text changes show up on the web page, so I know it was updated.

Any ideas (note I have two deluxe menus)?


A: You should check all your images paths.
You should also upload these files on your server in"side_menu.files/" folder.
I've tried to download "side_menu.files/btn_navy.gif" but I can't doit.
Please, check it.


Q: We have several problems with your menu.
Notice when trying to select a drop down item…the item disappears, rather than holding in place as the mouse is over the menu item.

Second, we’d like to know how to expand the width of the main headers and sub headers. Currently, they are not of the same width.

Lastly, we’d like to change the font and load new fonts to match the branding of the menu items.
Please let us know where we can find instructions to make these modifications/customizations.


A: Please, try to write your menuItems parameter correctly.
You should set "iconOver" parameter for each item (you can set "").
Please, see how you should write your menuItems:

["","index.php","nav_home_out.gif","nav_home_over.gif","","_self","0",,,],
["","","nav_experience_out.gif","nav_experience_over.gif","","_self","0",,,],
     ["|Contestants","experience_contestants.php","","","_self","2",,,],
...

> Second, we’d like to know how to expand the width of the

You should use Individual styles, for example:

  var itemStyles = [
["itemWidth=120px","arrowImageMain=image1,image2=home_out.gif,home_over.gif"],     // style 0
["itemBorderWidth=2","itemBorderStyle=solid,solid", "itemBorderColor=#AA0000,#0000FF"],     // style 1
["fontStyle=bold 12px Arial,Helvetica", "fontDecoration=none,underline"],     // style 2
];

  var menuItems = [
["","index.php","nav_home_out.gif","nav_home_over.gif","","_self","0",,,],
    ["","","nav_experience_out.gif","nav_experience_over.gif","","_self","0",,,],
...

For submenus you should set the following parameter:

  var smWidth="150px";

> Lastly, we’d like to change the font and load new
> fonts to match the branding of the menu items.

You should also use Individual styles.
But you should set this parameter:

  var fontStyle="";
And then use different fonts for your items.


Q: I'm still having the issue with the sub-menus not being in the proper place, however I was able to fix the issue with menu now showing up in IE at all, it turns out I forgot a tag. So do you know why the sub-menu alignment changes depending on the browser window size? Either of the links below should give an example.


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" 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=navholder>

So, you'll have:

<DIV id=navholder style="position:absolute;">


Q: I have tried various different ways,I cannot get a separator image I have specified in the Separators section to display for the navigation-bar-menu. I have verified that the image exists, but still nothing.

A: To add a separator you should

//--- Separators
  var separatorImage=""; //for subitems (top items in vertical menu)
  var separatorWidth="100%";
  var separatorHeight="3px";
  var separatorAlignment="right";
  var separatorVImage="separator.gif"; //for the top items (subitems items in vertical menu)
  var separatorVWidth="100%";
  var separatorVHeight="2px";
  var separatorPadding="";

You can create separators using menuItems (you can do it in Deluxe
Tuner, use "Add separator" button), for example:

   ["||All Images","gallery_all.html", , , , "_self", , , , ],
   ["||-"],
   ["||Pricing & Ordering Info","gallery_pricing.html", , , ,"_self", , , , ],
