the designer wants it so that when any of the submenu choice are selected, the main main menu in java item should be highlighted when the submenu page is displayed (kind of a breadcrumb). So, is there any way to change the background image of one of the main menu items after the menu loads? I haven't tried running my main menu in java in a webpage yet so I'm not sure if you generate a separate CSS file or put all of the settings into a STYLE= attribute of each tag.
A: The main menu in java 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.
Q: We have a problem with the submenus going cross-frame.
Whenever there is a webpage from another website in the content/target-frame the frameset twists and all the pages are shown in the topframe. A lot of the information on our web is in office word-files and when they are opened in the content/target-frame the same cross-frame-problem happens. Is it only possible for the sub-menus to go cross-frame when one of our own webpages is shown in the target-frame?
A: See more info about cross-frame mode here:
Notice, the menu will work correctly in the cross-frame mode if you load pages into the sub frame from the same domain.
If you load pages from another domain submenus won't be shown in the subframe - they will be shown in the frame with the top-menu.
It's caused by a security policy of browsers - a script can't modify a content of pages from another domain.
Q: Although our college standard is IE, a lot of our students use firefox. I tried the css drop menu in Firefox 2, and it works, but the nice transition effect isn't there. Will you make this work soon?
A: Transparency and other transitional effects are supported by IE 5.5+only. This is MS IE feature. Other browsers don't support them.
Q: There's a 1 pixel white padding around the css drop down menu that I'm trying to remove.
Is it a padding setting -- a margin setting -- a div setting?
A: This is a shadow.
Set the following parameter:
