It seems to me that if the dmWorkPath for each menu is declared separately, then the menus should work separately (with no interaction). I did not find this to be the case.
Do you have more complete information about creating multiple menus on one page? I would like to understand the issues.
A: David, if you want to create multiple menus on one page you should only call several data.js files with the menu.
For example you can see templates.html. You can find this file in the trial package.
Q: I have implemented a deluxe-menu on my client's website and I had a couple of questions.
2. In internet explorer, when you mouse over Need An Expert?, Technology the first time you go to the page, there is a 3-4 second delay before the submenu opens. There are a lot of submenu items under Technology, but in Firefox, there doesn't seem to be this delay. Do you know why this would happen in IE? Is there a way to fix it? Could the problem be that each submenu item has a background graphic and this is causing the delay?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!
A: 1. The scroll speed depends on number of items to be scrolled, more items -> faster scroll.
You can decrease the number of items or enlarge the size of submenu.
2,3. Please try to add the following param:
var dm_writeAll = 1;
It will load all backgrounds on page load, no on mouseover.
Q: The only remaining problem I see is that the html popup menu appears in slightly different positions depending upon where your mouse touches the icon.
Is there a way to make the menu position absolute in respect to the icon? I have tried playing with the menu item parameters that seemed related with no success.
A: See dm_popup() function parameters:
return dm_popup(menuInd, pause, event, x, y)
menuInd - index of the menu on a page, >= 0.
pause - determines the time when the html popup menu will be hidden.
event - constant. Do not change.
x, y - optional. Set these parameters if you want the menu to appear in the specified place.
In other case the menu will be shown in the mouse position.
Q: By the way, this is an issue at your site, too...
Have a look at
I notice this pages states: "If for some reasons a submenu can't drop down over an object the latter will be hidden for a time when the submenu is shown.".
A: Unfortunately, it is really so.
Now there is no work around for this.
