I am intersted in a horizontal drop down menu.
I need the rollover and selected color of each section in the onmouseover drop down menu to be a different color.
Here is my scenario
link1 link2 link3
All links are white.
On rollover, link1 turns red, and the drop down below is red (if possible can each individual link in the the dropdown rollover to a diffrent color, say pink?)
When you click a link in the link1 dropdown, and go to that page, link1 will now be red (highlighted) while on that page, and link2 and link3 are still white.
Now, On rollover, link2 turns blue, and the drop down below is blue(if possible can each individual link in the the dropdown rollover to a diffrent color, say light blue?)
When you click a link in the link2 dropdown, and go to that page, link2 will now be blue, and link2 and link3 are still white. I also need the flyout menus to be able to be different widths. Say the drop down menu under link1 has short links, then it only needs to be 100 pixels wide. If the sublinks under link 2 are longer, its dropdown menu might need to be 200 pixels wide. In other words, the flyout width needs to be flexible to fit the length of the text in the link.
I have tried other programs, but have found none that can do this. The problem seems to be they cant have different width flyout menus (often this is the case if they are css based).
It is not possible to show a 'up' or highlighted color on a main link when you are on a page that is a sublink)
To use different font colors for the main items you should useIndividual Item styles. And to cerate different color and differentwidth of the submenus you should use Individual Item/Submenu styles.
See the attached example.zip. See how you should use styles.

Actually the submenu width is depend on the item's size. You can alsowrap item's text. Set var noWrap=0; or use standard <br> tagsinside items' text:
["|very long text <br> in Item 14","", "", "", "", "", "3", "1", "", "", "", ],
You can set exact width for each submenu using IndividualSubmenu Styles.

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">onmouseover drop down menu by Deluxe-Menu.com</a></noscript>
function dm_ext_setPressedItem (menuInd, submenuInd, itemInd, recursion)
Sets a current pressed item.
menuInd - index of a menu 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.
This is probably a really basic question, but I was wondering if
your dhtml menu maker makes it possible to determine the direction of the
drop down menu. In other words, my menu is at the bottom of the page
and I want the drop down list to actually go "up," not down.
Is that possible with your software?A: Yes it is possible.
You should use the following parameter
var subMenuVAlign="top"; //downward
var subMenuVAlign="bottom"; //upward
var subMenuAlign="left"; //from left to right
var subMenuAlign="right"; //from right to left
We currentlly have a menu that uses standard html hyperlinks to open a new window with _blank as the target. Unfortunately, the size of the window is controlled by the browser and we want to be able to control it. The only way that we know how to do that is to use the window.open client-side function and pass the window's dimensions. Here is a sample of the code that would do that:
I need to have a horizontal menu and a vertical menu on the same page (obviously with different content). I did this as two separate "projects" in the tuner and gave them different names so that the files wouldn't step on each other. However, it looks like only the second menu works, though it does show both. I assume it has something to do with the variable dmWorkPath overriding the first value with the second. How can I have two menus each with different content on the same HTML page? A: You can use as many menus as you want on the one page.
But you should call dmWorkPath parameter and dmenu.js file only once.
