I have a menu with one "root" item. I see the use of the "+" symbol within the item name. I do not see any documentation regarding this symbol, only "|". Can you explain?
If I have one menu with this one "root" node, how would I add an subitem to this root node?
Here is my code so far, but the inserted items appear to be at the same level as the root node.
var rootItem = dtreet_ext_getItemIDByIndex ( 0,0 );
var menuItem = new Array(10);
for ( var i = 0; i < producers.length; i++ )
var producer = producers[ i ];
menuItem = producer.name;
dtreet_ext_insertItem ( 0, 0, i + 1, menuItem );
A: See dtreet_ext_insertItem () function has the following parameters:
function dtreet_ext_insertItem (menuInd, parentItemID, itemInd, itemParams)
Creates a new item and inserts it into a specified position.
parentItemID - ID property of an item.<, >= 0.
itemParams - item parameters.
Notice that parentItemID is the Id property of the parent item (notindex). If you want to add top items you should set parentItemID=0.
itemInd - you should use this parameter if you want to add item in thespecific place, for example set itemInd=5 if you want to add itembefore the existing item with itemInd=5.
If you set itemInd=null the new item will be added at the end of this submenu and its index will be added automatically.
Q: In my previous email asking about your menu program's ability to display a different color word on a menu item when the site is on that selected page, I made a mistake - I was experimenting with Vista xp1 style, the black/blue shiny dhtml menu templates.
A: The menu has only two states normal and mouseover. We'll try to add the pressed state in the future.
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.
Q: Doesn't this mean that I have to add this search engine code to all of my sites pages? If so this could be tedious when adding additional pages to a large site.Is this something I can adjust ...or make submenus were you can't see through them?
A: Unfortunately it is really so. You should paste search engine code onthe each page with the menu.
If you don't want to create your menu (and add search engine friendlycode) on each page, you can try to use frames, the menu has a cross-frame mode. Also you can use aserver-side script (php, asp, vb, etc.) to generate html pages fromtemplates on your server.
Q: Are these cool html scripts compatible with .NET?
So, you can create the menu using standard html page and them movemenu code within .asp page.
