Recent Questions Javascript Category Tree

Q: I want javascript navigation menu to lock into place when someone visits a page. Is there a way to do this?

A: Try to set the pressed item using the following API function:
function dm_ext_setPressedItem (menuInd, submenuInd, itemInd, recursion, parentOpen)
Sets a current pressed item.
menuInd - index of a dynamic menu on a page, >= 0.
submenuInd - index of a submenu, >= 0.
itemInd - index of an item, >=0.
recursion = true/false - highlight parent items.
parentOpen = true/false - open all submenus to show the selected item

See example here:
http://deluxe-menu.com/highlighted-items-sample.html

Try to click 'Highlight "Product Info/Installation/Description ofFiles" item'.

You can also try to use the following parameter:
  var smHidePause = 1000;
A delay (in ms) between mouse is moved from submenu and its closing.
You can make submenus to stay visible till you click outside the menu or scroll your page.
To enable this feature you should set this parameter in the following way:   var smHidePause = -1;



Q: Once more I have a small question about JavaScript Tree Menu.
I have rewritten my homepage (still off-line) to use stylesheets instead of frames. But for some reason the drop down menu templates won't appear anymore.
Does DM need frames or can it also work without frames? I would suppose that it can also work on a page with no frames. But for some reason I can't seem to get it to work.


A: If you don't use frames there is no need to write your init functionin the following way:

dm_initFrame("lower", 0, 1, 1);

That is way you cannot see your menu.
Please, write:

dm_init();


Q: I have been using the DHTML Menu program for years and they are working good.

But I found an office where the javascript tree menu example just simply does'nt appear.

I am curious about it, why just in that office the Menu is not working.

I can note than other javascript routines I put on my page are not working neither.

Can you give me some idea of what can I check on the computers?
Something on the explorer? (IE6) , or a kind of program?

A: Your browser has JavaScript option disabled.
It means that no one JavaScript element can be run.
You should to enable JavaScript in IE:
Tools -> Internet Options -> Security -> Custom level... -> Scripting -> Active Scripting = Enable

There is no way to enable these preferences automatically, in othercase there are no reasons to create security preferences.

You can use search engine friendly code, so you'll see all yourlinks (for the main items and submenus) when your security settings in IE doesn't allow Javascript.

You can generate search engine friendly code.
JavaScript Tree Menu is a search engine friendly menu since v1.12.
To create a search engine friendly menu you should add additional html code within your html page:

<div id="dmlinks">
<a href="http://deluxe-menu.com">menu_item_text1</a>
<a href="http://deluxe-tree.com">menu_item_text2</a>
...etc.
</div>

To generate such a code use Deluxe Tuner application.
You can find this GUI in the trial package.
Run Tuner, load your menu and click Tools/Generate SE-friendly Code (F3).


Q: Your service is excellent and I am making progress learning the program. I was able to resolve the transparency issue thanks to your help but, but now I have another one that is stumping me.

I can get the menu to show up in my html document and it works as I hoped it would. However, no matter where I put the line of code in my html file, the down menu in dhtml always shows up at the very top of the page. The instructions indicate the following:

Copy the following code into clipboard and paste it into the place you want to have the down menu in dhtml:

<script type="text/javascript" src="newmenu2.js"></script>

For example, into a table cell:
<table>
<td><script type="text/javascript" src="newmenu2.js"></script></td>
</table>

No matter where I put the code:
<script type="text/javascript" src="newmenu2.js"></script>, the menu shows up at the top of the page.
What am I missing?

A: Check that you're using relative position for the down menu in dhtml:

  var absolutePos=0;
  var posX="0px";
  var posY="0px";
