Recent Questions Html Tree Menus Tutorial

Q: Thank you for your quick service. Question for you, in the templates java expanding menu - Standard Tree Menu. There is an option to search by Index and also word query. When I bring the Template up I dont see this option on the sample menu. I'm I missing something or do I need to add it. If I need to add it can you explain to me how to do it.

A: You are able to paste any html code within java expanding menu items.

For example:

  var tmenuItems = [
...
["<nobr><FORM method=GET action='http://www.google.com/custom'><input name='as_q' value='search
the web' size=15 style='font-size:10'>&nbsp;<INPUT type=hidden name=cof
value='LW:144;L:http://domain.edu/images/sulogo.gif;LH:45;AH:center;GL:0;S: http://domain.edu;AWFID:e01cb67b8afe383e;'></form></nobr>","", "images/icons/search.gif", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", "",],

You should write your own code within tmenuItem.



Q: Is there a way to convert a dhtml javascript tree menu I created into a JavaScript Tree Menu using the same data so I do not have to type in all the names and links of items?

A: Actually menuItems and tmenuItems have a different structure.

  var menuItems = [
[text, link, iconNormal, iconOver, tip, target, itemStyleInd, submenuStyleInd, jsFilename],
];

  var tmenuItems = [
[text, link, iconNormal, iconOver, iconExpanded, tip, target, itemStyleInd, itemXPStyleInd, jsFilename],
];

We don't have such converter yet. You can try to change your menuItems in any text editor. I suppose it will be easier to convert items in editor than in Deluxe Tuner.


Q: I was able to install the rollover dropdown menu pretty easily. However, how do I make the text of it bigger for the main items? I can change the text easily for the subitems.

I can't find anyway to do this. Also, if I edit the size of the before/after for the buttons, do I need to edit anything else in the javascript? Most of their heights is 23px but I wnat to make it 27px.

Let me know and I will purchase the software if I can get it to work.

A: Try to change Individual Item styles. I suppose that you're usingIndividual style for the top items now.



Q: I've finally got it working and it looks good. So thanks. But... unfortunally there's still a small problem wich occured after I got everything else working: No matter if I set the parmeter "  var texpanded" to '1' or '0' it expands by default tree menu javascript. Why?

I also have another question I forgot to ask you about earlier: Originally I only had the data.js file but in the non-profit zip file you gave me there was no "data.js" file, only "data-tree.js". Wich one will the script use? Do I need both? The javascript call I put where I want the menu to appear calls for "DATA. js". So what good does the "data-TREE.js" file do?

I include the "data.js" file if you need to have a look at it. The "data-tree. js" file is identical now that I changed all the "  var tmenuItems" at the bottom). (The "menu.html" I guess you can look at yourself by "View source".)

Also, the submenus where I would like to put XP style menus are not finished yet but for now I have the same "tree" script in them. They are under "DART/dartspel.html", and on six artist discographys under MUSIK: Edguy, Katie Melua, Joe Satriani, Michael Schenker, Trans-Siberian Orchestra and Magnus Uggla. This is if you'ld like to see the sub pages where I use other "copys" of Deluxe-tree. (I hope you don't mind that the "Illegal copyright" nag is very small. It's supposed to dissapear anyway with the new Non-profit license).

A: 1) See the structure of your tmenuItems is incorrect now.

You should write:
["->HEM (Klicka f?r meny)","welcome.html", "data.files/hem.gif", "data.files/hem2.gif", "data.files/hem.gif", "Startsidan", "right", "", ],
Without '|' symbol in the beginning.

2) You should write tleft parameter correctly. Now you have:

//--- Positioning
  var tabsolute=1;
  var tleft="00px";
  var ttop="10px";

Write it in the following way:
  var tleft="10px";

3) data-tree.js file is the default tree menu javascript file. There is no need to use it if you already haveyour data.js file.
