Q: I know. I have two menus on the page and I am not using beforeItemImage orafterItemImage for the top menu in javascript (the one you referenced below), but I need it for the second menu. The parameters for that menu are in mainnav_data.js.

Even when I only call dmWorkPath and dmenu.js once, it does not work.

A: See, it is not correctly to use image-based items:

["","", "mainnav_data.files/corpinfo.gif", "mainnav_data.files/corpinfo2.gif", "", "_self", "0", "", "", "", "", ],

and specify beforeItemImage/afterItemImage parameters. They won't work in that case.

You can create such buttons in the following ways:
1) Use image-based menu (images with text).

Create normal and mouse-over state images (with text) for each item:
["","", "mainnav_data.files/corpinfo.gif", "mainnav_data.files/corpinfo2.gif", "", "_self", "", "", "", "", "", ],
["","", "mainnav_data.files/new.gif", "mainnav_data.files/new2.gif", "", "_self", "", "", "", "", "", ],
["","", "mainnav_data.files/xxxxx.gif", "mainnav_data.files/xxxxx2.gif", "", "_self", "", "", "", "", "", ],


2) Use combined background for the menu in javascript items (images without text).

  var beforeItemImage = [,]; //left-side image for normal and mouse over state
  var itemBackImage = [,]; //background or image for normal and mouse over state
  var afterItemImage = [,]; //right-side image for normal and mouse over state
  var beforeItemImageW = '';
  var afterItemImageW = '';
  var beforeItemImageH = '';
  var afterItemImageH ='';

But you should create a small images in any Graph Editor, for example:
button_n_back.gif
button_n_left.gif
button_n_right.gif
button_o_back.gif
button_o_left.gif
button_o_right.gif

You cannot use these two methods together!


Q: Another problem I've found with v3.1 is that the top X value of the javascript floating menu is not used once you start scrolling a page.

A: Yes, we've made some changes in javascript floating menu feature in the new version.

Try to set
  var floatable=2;



Q: We are unable to get sub-menus to appear on page load or rather simulate a "windows application style menu".

How can we in combination with the java menu api function dm_ext_setPressedItem get the associated sub-menu to display? This function simply sets the item to "pressed" rather than actually showing the sub-menu. Attempts at beginning an item's text value with "+" only works with Javascript/DHTML Tree.

Again, we are trying to use the menu not only as a navigator but also as a visual aid for the user to determine what page they are viewing. For example, when a user clicks on a menu item and that page loads, the menu should display the top-level item pressed, the sub-menu group, and the item pressed.

Furthermore, it would also be useful if we could then "unlock" the pressed items and navigate the menu under normal circumstances.

If there are no existing "quick" functions to accomplish this, could you please point out the function in dmenu.js or another engine file that initiates the display of sub-menus, we could then force the menu to select a top-level item in the onload event thus showing a top-level item pressed along with it's related sub-menu.

A: Unfortunately JavaScript Tree Menu doesn't have such a feature now. It is notpossible to set parent item highlighted, expanded submenu group andhighlighted submenu item.

You can do it using Javascript/DHTML Tree now only.


Q: I cannot get the separator image to display in my dhtml right click menu. Is there a setting I am missing? I want to separate the main menu items with an image.

A: To add a separator you should

//--- Separators
  var separatorImage=""; //for subitems (top items in vertical dhtml right click 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 DeluxeTuner, use "Add separator" button), for example:

  var menuItems = [
["item 1"],
["-"], // this item is separator
["item 2"],
];
