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: Is it possible to enter text in the java source code that won't display as a link?
A: If you don't want to use items as links you can disable these items.
To disable item you should set target parameter to "_".
You can do it in "Item Parameters" window.
Q: I need to set individual itemtargets for a number of items in the navigation bar menu...
A: You can set target parameter for all items:
where main - is the name of the main frame where you want to open the link
or for each item individually:
["Home","testlink.html", "", "", "", "_blank", "", "", "", "", "", ],
["Home","testlink.html", "", "", "", "main", "", "", "", "", "", ],
Q: I can’t seem to figure out how to keep last clicked item in my java menu script marked.
I use these options:
pressedItem = -1
var saveNavigationPath = 1;
Where and how do I determine the background color of the clicked item?
A: The menu has only two states normal and mouseover.
Try to do the following things:
- delete var pressedItem=1; parameter from your data file
- set correct parameter on each page before you call data file, forexample:
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.
