I opened Deluxe Tuner program to build a menu and there are categories titled common, dimensions, font, appearance etc. and I have NO IDEA what to do?
Can you walk me through the development of a menu?
A: First of all you should add items.
Please, click "Add item" and "Add subitem".
In the "Item parameters" window you can set text, link, target, iconsfor the menu items. You can also assign different style for each menuitem (item style and submenu style).
But at first you should create this style. Click "Edit IndividualStyle/Add Style" and set different parameters for the style.
Try to set different parameters of the menu.
In the "Preview window" you can see all your changes.
First of all you should choose menu orientation:
var isHorizontal = 1; Menu orientation: 0 - vertical, 1 - horizontal.
You can set exact width and height of the menu in the "Dimension"category.
You should set
if you want to have absolute positioning menu.
Font style you can set in the "Font" category.
To set color of the menu you should set the following parameters:
Try also to change these parameters:
Arrows for main items and subitems you can set here:
If want to have floatable or movable menu you should set the followingparameters:
You can also try to change any template.
Q: I am looking to get the Floating to work for the flash drop down menu.
A: To enable floating feature you should set the following parameters:
Check also that you have dmenu_add.js file in the same folder withdmenu.js file.
Q: Deluxe menu v. 2 (the most recent version) -- I've triedeverything but cannot get the separator images (vertical orhorizontal) to appear. My other images appear fine, and I know theimages are where I've called them. I've tried root relative anddocument relative paths, and even set the advanced image prefixvariable, but they never appear. Can you spot what's wrong?
A related question: what I'm trying to do is to simply have a 1pxseparator between my main items (vertical) and between my sub-items(horizontal). Short of building a css mode menu, is this possibleusing your script -- if I set border=1 without any spacing, then thetwo borders between adjoining items come together and I get whatappears to be a 2px border separator. Is it possible to set margin-right=1, margin-bottom=1? This doesn't seem possible through thetuner: it appears to be border on all four sides or nothing.
A: You should see the following parameters:
//------- Separators -------
var separatorImage=""; //--- file exists in this location
You should set a separator in the menuItems, for example:
var menuItems = [
["Home","index.cfm", , , , , , , , ],
["About Us","about.cfm", , , , , , , , ],
Q: The button menu is on the top of the screen but it has lines through each of the menus just after the words and before the arrow on each of them.
I have stretched the menu out tocover the whole of the top of the page but i need to get these lines out of the menu.
Can you please help me with this problem
A: See images in Vista Templates have the fixed width and height (92 x21):
var itemStyles = [
"fontStyle=normal 11px Tahoma","fontColor=#3A3A3A,#000000","itemBackImage=data-vista-2-04.files/btn_olive.gif,data-vista-2-04.files/btn_white.gif"],
When items text is too long you can have such effect.
You can try to use combined background for your items, for example:
var beforeItemImage = [,]; //left-side image for normal and mouse over state
var itemBackImage = [,]; //background or image for normal and mouse over state
var afterItemImage = [,]; //right-side image for normal and mouse over state
var beforeItemImageW = '';
var afterItemImageW = '';
var beforeItemImageH = '';
var afterItemImageH ='';
But you should create a small images in any Graph Editor, for example:
