Recent Questions Html Treemenu SafariQ: You have a great, and very intuitive and easy to learn, product.
I'm down to two dumb questions:
A. What controls the little red arrows? I'd like them on every one of the navigators.
B. How do I create equal space between the drop down menu items? It looks weird right now.
A: 1) If your top item has a submenu this arrow will appear automatically.
For the items without submenus you may write:
["Home <img src='skin_data.files/arrowmain11.gif'>","index.html", "", "", "", "_self", "", "", "", "", "", ],
["About Us <img src='skin_data.files/arrowmain11.gif'>","about_us.html", "", "", "", "_self", "", "", "", "", "", ],
You can find arrowmain11.gif image in the attached example.
Actually you can add any html code inside item's text.
2) Set the drop down menu padding:
var itemPadding="3px 15px 3px 3px";
Q: Hi, I need to know if it is possible to accomplish the following functionalities with your tree-menu library.
1. I need to have two or more trees in the same page
3. I need to eliminate the nodes that has check=true
4. I need to populate on-demand the tree using AJAX
5. I need to implement drag&drop through the use of the mouse events on the tree nodes
6. How would the tree behave with 10000 nodes??
7. I need to have a tree within another element that uses scroll
such as a DIV or SPAN (fixed area). When collapsed or expanded, the area should remain its original size.
A: 1. You can add any number of the menus on the one page.
2, 3, 5. Yes, you can do it. But you should create your own server-side script (for example, php) that will do it. The menu doesn't support such a feature.
6. It is possible that the loading speed can be lower if the menu is very large. But it doesn't take so much time.
Yes, you can notice some delay in IE, but in over browsers it works better.
I tried to create large menus on my machine: P4 3GHz, 512RAM WinXP SP2
- 1000 items ~ 10 sec
- 2000 items ~ 40 sec
Q: Hello. I have noticed that when you expand a menu and then click to another page, the menu is collapsed on the next page. I read about "state saving" and tried the parameter which did not work. Is there a way to accomplish this?
A: You can see the example for state saving here:
This menu saves its state.
To enable this mode you should include dtree_ss.js file intoyour html page and set the following parameter:
var tsaveState = 1;
See, if you open pages (with menus) from different folder itmeans that you open different menus. So, when you change a state, forexample, of the first menu within "content/" folder and then openanother page with the menu within "content/subfolder/", browsers looks for anothercookie file and can't find it and the second menu stays in a defaultstate. Is it clear?
Q: I'm testing out your cascading html menu but I cannot seem to see the live version of it on line. I can view it on my computer but I cannot send a link to my coworkers so they can view it also. Am I putting the code in the right location? Please point me into the right direction.
A: It is not correctly to call data file inside H2 tag
You should write
Check that you uploaded dtree.js and test1.js files on your server.
