I saw the examples you have and I'd love to be able to do that on my website, but I don't understand the scripting that you have written there.
Like, what makes it float from this text...
A: If you want a floatable menu, you should set an absolute position forthe menu and paste the following code into your html page:
Paste the following code into <head> tag
Then set coordinates of top-left menu corner in the data .js file, forexample:
Then set var floatable=1.
The parameter floatable=1 makes a floatable menu.
Also you can change any of menu parameters inside data .js file.
Q: I have started using your menu and when testing in both IE-browsers the CPU jumps to 100% for at least 30 to 60sec.
Then the sub menu appears but also not as fast as in Firefox(no effects).
Now does my menu contains about 1476 item-lines, and I use the cross-frame modus.
A: 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
You can try to use AJAX-like technology.
Q: I would like to use it in a page containing two iFrames.
The iFrame called "nav" is where the menu will appear and the iFrame called "main" is where I want any sub-menu items to appear.
How can this be done given there are no "frameset" tags in this type of structure?
It works with<frameset> objects only. All it can to do with <IFrame> is to loadpages into it.
You should use standard installation for the menu.
Q: I ordered & installed the dhtml collapsable menu.
I can't seem to get the floating function to work. Here's how I have the variables set in the data-tree.js file:
var tfloatable = 1;
var tfloatIterations = 10;
var tfloatableX = 0;
var tfloatableY = 1;
And here are the links to the .js files in my HTML doc <head>:
Please let me know if there are any other settings that need to be changed. I'm hoping to go live with this site wed. so a quck reply is appreciated.
A: Notice, your dhtml collapsable menu won't float with relative position. You shouldset:
