Recent Questions Expandable Tree Menu Onmouseover Html Tutorial

Q: My site has three levels of a folder structure.  Can I create a menu that will allow me to link in and out of folders?  Or must I design three menu's with different link locations. 


A: You can use one menu.

Use additional parameters to make menu paths absolute:

  var pathPrefix_img = "http://domain.com/images/";
  var pathPrefix_link = "http://domain.com/pages/";

These parameters allow to make images and links paths absolute.
For example:

  var pathPrefix_img = "http://domain.com/images/";
  var pathPrefix_link = "http://domain.com/pages/";
  var menuItems = [
["text", "index.html", "icon1.gif", "icon2.gif"],
];

So, link path will be look so:
http://domain.com/pages/index.html

Images paths will be look so:
http://domain.com/images/icon1.gif
http://domain.com/images/icon2.gif

Please, try to use these parameters.


Q: I wonder if you can help me. I've uploaded all my files, including the menus to the client site.
All the menus were working fine, where each link was targeted to the frame "mainFrame" in the middle of the page. This morning, all the css javascript menu link targets don't work anymore. That is, the targeting info has not changed but the linked pages are opening up as a _parent page -- that is, replacing the entire page.


A: You should use absolute paths.

See the url browser tried to open:

http://domain.com/a_bp/bpdoc/3sell/32_sales_order_management/321_sales_order/
7operations/72_monitor_operations/index.html

instead of:

http://domain.com/7operations/72_monitor_operations/index.html

  var pathPrefix_link = "http://domain.com/pages/";

These parameter allows to make links paths absolute.
For example:

  var pathPrefix_link = "http://domain.com/pages/";

  var menuItems = [
["text", "index.html", "icon1.gif", "icon2.gif"],
];

So, link path will be look so:
http://domain.com/pages/index.html

Please, try to use this parameter.


Q: I am intersted in a horizontal drop down menu.

I need the rollover and selected color of each section in the onmouseover drop down menu to be a different color.

Here is my scenario

link1 link2 link3
All links are white.
On rollover, link1 turns red, and the drop down below is red (if possible can each individual link in the the dropdown rollover to a diffrent color, say pink?)
When you click a link in the link1 dropdown, and go to that page, link1 will now be red (highlighted) while on that page, and link2 and link3 are still white.

Now, On rollover, link2 turns blue, and the drop down below is blue(if possible can each individual link in the the dropdown rollover to a diffrent color, say light blue?)
When you click a link in the link2 dropdown, and go to that page, link2 will now be blue, and link2 and link3 are still white. I also need the flyout menus to be able to be different widths. Say the drop down menu under link1 has short links, then it only needs to be 100 pixels wide. If the sublinks under link 2 are longer, its dropdown menu might need to be 200 pixels wide. In other words, the flyout width needs to be flexible to fit the length of the text in the link.
I have tried other programs, but have found none that can do this. The problem seems to be they cant have different width flyout menus (often this is the case if they are css based).
OR
It is not possible to show a 'up' or highlighted color on a main link when you are on a page that is a sublink)

Does this make sense, and is it possible with your builder?

A: Yes, you can create such a menu using JavaScript Tree Menu.

To use different font colors for the main items you should useIndividual Item styles. And to cerate different color and differentwidth of the submenus you should use Individual Item/Submenu styles.

See the attached example.zip. See how you should use styles.

> I also need the flyout menus to be able to be different widths.
Actually the submenu width is depend on the item's size. You can alsowrap item's text. Set   var noWrap=0; or use standard <br> tagsinside items' text:

 ["|very long text <br> in Item 14","", "", "", "", "", "3", "1", "", "", "", ],

You can set exact width for each submenu using IndividualSubmenu Styles.

> link2 and link3 are still white.

JavaScript Tree Menu has only two states normal and mouseover.

Try to do the following things:

- delete   var pressedItem=1; parameter from your data file
- set correct parameter on each page before you call data file, forexample:

<noscript><a href="http://deluxe-menu.com">onmouseover drop down 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=3;</script>
...
<script type="text/javascript" src="menudir/data.js"></script>

You can also set a pressed item using Javascript API:

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: I have not been able to get the dhtml context menu - or any other Javascript - to appear. I use FrontPage2000. Any ideas?

A: See how you should install JavaScript Tree Menu on your pages.

JavaScript Tree Menus weren't developed as Dreamweaver/Frontpage extension,BUT you can use it as standard Javascript files. To install the dhtml context menuinto your html page:

1. open the page in your program
2. open html source code of the page
3. add several rows of code (<script> tags), For info see:
http://deluxe-tree.com/installation-info.html

That's all.

It is possible that Dreamweaver changes some paths, so you havean error in the preview.
On your site or in your browser there'll be no errors.

Create your menu in Deluxe Tuner application.
You can create any dhtml context menu as you like in Deluxe Tuner.

2. You should install the menu on your page.
You can click, for example, File/Export to HTML (you can't do it inthe MAC version).

Add several rows into your html page.

<head>
...
<!-- JavaScript Tree Menu -->
<noscript><a href="http://deluxe-menu.com">dhtml context menu by Deluxe-Menu.com</a></noscript>
<script type="text/javascript">  var dmWorkPath="deluxe-menu.files/";</script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="deluxe-menu.files/dmenu.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="data-deluxe-menu.js"></script> //data-deluxe-menu.js - data file created in Deluxe Tuner.
...
</head>

<body>
...
<table>
<tr><td><script type="text/javascript" src="deluxe-menu.files/data.js"></script></td></tr>
</table>
...
</body>

dmenu.js
dmenu4.js
dmenu_add.js
dmenu_dyn.js
dmenu_key.js
dmenu_cf.js
dmenu_popup.js
dmenu_ajax.js
