Recent Questions Java Javascript Tree

Q: Greetings. How do I make a menu item as default selected and open when the page loads with the dhtml menu bar script? Thanks.

A: 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">dhtml menu bar script 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 dhtml menu bar script 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: Couple last questions. I have 25 icons (images) on one page. Each image needs it's own popup menu. Obviously I now have the first one working. How and where do I define IDs number 2-24 ? Does each icon need it's own "source_" file?

Also, where is it defined that the popup menu is ID 1 ?


A: > Also, where is it defined that the popup menu is ID 1 ?
Each menu has ID. The ID's number starts with 0.

So, when you have several data files on your page you have such ID's:

<script type="text/javascript" language="JavaScript1.2" src="menu-top.js"></script> // ID - 0

<script type="text/javascript" language="JavaScript1.2" src="source_pop.js"></script> // ID - 1

<script type="text/javascript" language="JavaScript1.2" src="source_pop1.js"></script> // ID - 2

<script type="text/javascript" language="JavaScript1.2" src="source_pop2.js"></script> // ID - 3

<script type="text/javascript" language="JavaScript1.2" src="source_pop3.js"></script> // ID - 4

and so on.

> I have 25 icons (images) on one page. Each image needs it's own popup menu.
If you want to have different Popup menus (there color, item, text,font and so on) you should create 25 different .js files with yourparameters. And call them from your page, for example:

<SCRIPT language=JavaScript1.2 src="source_pop.js" type=text/javascript></SCRIPT>
<SCRIPT language=JavaScript1.2 src="source_pop1.js" type=text/javascript></SCRIPT>
<SCRIPT language=JavaScript1.2 src="source_pop2.js" type=text/javascript></SCRIPT>
...
<SCRIPT language=JavaScript1.2 src="source_pop24.js" type=text/javascript></SCRIPT>

If you have different item text only you can use one
<SCRIPT language=JavaScript1.2 src="source_pop.js" type=text/javascript></SCRIPT>
file. But you should delete the following code:

  var menuItems = [

["Next","testlink.htm"],
["Prev","testlink.htm"],
["Close","testlink.htm"],
];

dm_init();

and move it to the html page:

<body>
...
<SCRIPT language=JavaScript1.2 src="source_pop.js" type=text/javascript></SCRIPT>
<script type="text/javascript"> //first popup menu ID - 1
  var menuItems = [

["Next","testlink.htm"],
["Prev","testlink.htm"],
["Close","testlink.htm"],
];

dm_init();
</SCRIPT>
<script type="text/javascript"> //second popup menu ID - 2
  var menuItems = [

["Text","testlink.htm"],
["Text1","testlink.htm"],
["Text2","testlink.htm"],
];

dm_init();
</SCRIPT>
<script type="text/javascript"> //third popup menu ID - 3
  var menuItems = [

["New_Text","testlink.htm"],
["New_Text1","testlink.htm"],
["New_Text2","testlink.htm"],
];

dm_init();
</SCRIPT>
...
<script type="text/javascript"> //twenty fourth popup menu ID - 3
  var menuItems = [

["New","testlink.htm"],
["New","testlink.htm"],
["New","testlink.htm"],
];

dm_init();
</SCRIPT>

<img src="testimage.gif" width=200 onClick="return dm_popup(1, 1000, event);" style="cursor: hand;">
<img src="testimage.gif" width=200 onClick="return dm_popup(2, 1000, event);" style="cursor: hand;">
<img src="testimage.gif" width=200 onClick="return dm_popup(3, 1000, event);" style="cursor: hand;">
...
<img src="testimage.gif" width=200 onClick="return dm_popup(24, 1000, event);" style="cursor: hand;">
...
</body>



Q: How do I create more space between the menu items?

I have tried adding to the Item Appearance, itemSpacing and itemPadding.


A: You can paste the separator.
Please, see the following parameters:

//------- Separators -------
  var separatorWidth = "10";
  var separatorHeight = "20";
  var separatorAlignment = "center";
  var separatorImage = "C";
  var separatorVWidth = "150";
  var separatorVHeight = "10%";
  var separatorVImage = "image.jpg";

You can create separators using menuItems, for example:

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

You can also use this parameter:

  var itemPadding = "4px";

You can also set multiple values, for example:

  var itemPadding = "2px 15px 5px 5px";

(top, right, bottom, left)


Q: I am still struggling with multiple menus on one page.
It is probably something I am doing wrong, but I cannot see it.


A: Now you have:

  var absolutePos=1;
  var posX="10";
  var posY="10";


So, both of your menus have the same absolute position.

You can use relative position and place your menu inside <table>. In this case you should write so:

  var absolutePos=0;
