We have been evaluating your menu control.
We are interested in making our main dhtml rollover menu items a constant width, but the data.js parameters ( var menuWidth="800px"; var menuHeight="30px"; var smWidth=""; var smHeight="";) don't seem to give us that capability. We dynamically remove main menu items based on user roles and when we do the main menu always re-sizes and the remaining main menu item widths no longer match our sub-menu widths. We're able to adjust for this by using the API but that seems to be a lot of unnecessary coding. If we could keep each main menu item a fixed width, our sub-menu widths would not have to change.
Do you have information on how to accomplish fixed main menu item widths, even better would be an example? A: Actually you can specify the width and of all or individual dhtml rollover menu items or submenus usingIndividual Item/Submenu styles.Q:
Our requirement is to design a website using Cross Frame Menu ,
in allcombinations like Horizontal Menu with sub menus Vertical Menu with sub menus
Let me know the necessary information to create Cross Frame Menu using your side dropdown menu..A: See how should you create cross frame menu:
1. To initialize the cross frame menu call dm_initFrame()
function instead of standard dm_init() function within data.js file:
dm_initFrame(framesetID, mainFrameInd, subFrameInd, orientation);
framesetID - id attribute of the frameset;
mainFrameInd - index of the main frame (where the top-menu is placed), >=0;
subFrameInd - index of the subframe (where the submenus will be shown), >=0;
orientation - frame orientaion: 0 - top-to-bottom, 1 - left-to-right; 2 - bottom-to-top; 3 - right-to-left.
So you should create your menu in Deluxe Tuner, save it.
Create html file with your frame set.
Set ID for the first frameset:
<FRAMESET id=frmSet rows=220,*>
Then you should open your data file in any text editor and change
dm_init(); for example to dm_initFrame("frmSet", 0, 1, 0);

The first is that for some reason my item separator image will not show. I have tried everything.. and no matter what I do the image will not show. I designed a graphic that is 2 pixels high and is the width of the total menu. The first problem is that the graphic wont show at all.. and I do not know why. Secondly, I am now thinking that I would like to use the separator graphic on all levels of the menu.. but this creates a another issue.. as the width of the submenus varies based on the length of the text displayed. How then can I have a separator image work in the submenus? A: Try to write you Item Styles so:
var itemStyles = [
See the normal item border color.
You didn't paste separator into your menuItems.
