Can I create menus with cross-frame capability using your drop down menu generator?
With the menu beingin one frame and the submenus opening to the other frame? 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);

I have a question about your code for drop down menu; I was searching the internet for some programs that could generate a good menu for me. I came across your program deluxe tuner. It said it was freehowever it seems as if you need another program to get this one to work although it looks like deluxe tuner does everything I need to do. Anyways I am having a serious issue. The program generates the navbar perfectly fine, the problem is getting it to import into my web page. I tried the instructions below in dreamweaver CS3 severaltimes. I then tried to do it to a blank web page still nothing. I go into the source code and paste the code that this program generates exactly where I am told to place it then I also place the other code where I would like the navbar to be. Nothing happens I preview my site and I just get a blank page??? I placed the source files under the root of the web folder; I double checked the code to make sure that it is pointing to the source files. The Main .Js file sits in the root folder the same folder that the page is in, and the other .js files sit under a folder called “ NavBar.files “ that deluxe tuner generated for me.What could I possible be missing?? If I need to pay for the program I defiantly will but not until I get an answer on this question. A: Your installation seems to be correct.
Please, check that you have all files for the code for drop down menu in the correctplaces, for example:
Try also to set exact width for the code for drop down menu, for example:
I would like to call a popup window (created in Deluxe Truner) from a deluxe menu item. A: You should add the code for popup window on your html page with the menu:
<!-- Deluxe Popup Window -->
<noscript><a href="http://deluxepopupwindow.com">menu drop down by DeluxePopupWindow.com</a></noscript>
<!-- (c) 2006, DeluxePopupWindow.com -->
Inside menuItems you should open the window in the following way:
"", "", "", "", "0", "", "", "", "", ],

The problem that I'm having is when ever the menu has an external link clicked to load in the main frame, the main menu (blue one with icons) dropped down & the frame below is moved to the bottom ofthe menu, or in other terms the menu frame stretches to the size of the menu & moves the main frame down.A: 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.
