I am having trouble changing a template of dhtml drop down menu code. I am using the
and I want to add more items to the top menu, however when I add an item, it doesn't follow the format of the existing items. A: See, we use Individual Item Styles for the top items in this template.
For, example select the "CONTACTS" item on the main window.
In the "Item Parameters" window you can see Individual Styles assignedfor this item:
Item Style - Style1
Icons / Normal - images/spacer.gif
When you add the new item you should assign Individual Styles for itand add icon in the same way.
That is all.
Does your product generate the page code or is t a dll I have to use? Reason I ask is because we store our menu stuff with image references in a db. If your product outputs code for the menu, then I can use that and in my own code I can place/substitute values and work with it from there.A: We have an .exe file - Deluxe tuner.
It generates .js files with menu parameters.
You can also export your menu to .html file.
You may generate a menu from a database or XML using any server-side script, e.g., PHP, ASP, VB, etc.
<!-- (c) 2006, http://deluxe-menu.com -->
// and describe parameters of a menu
var menuItems = [ // here you generate items using server-side scripts (php, asp, vb, etc.) ];
Unfortunately we don't have examples with ASP and SQL.
The example of the menu working with PHP/MYSQL you can find here:
I have already tried this exact same method, using and alternate "itemBackColor" and this is not what I needed. As you can see in your example putting in an item back color only give you a different bg color on the item itself, but the BG of the menu around it remains the same. In your example the lighter bg color of my menu is surrounding the item bg color making this look more like a mistake and poor design.
It do use the item bg color for the rollover in my menu, as you can see, but implementing this does not give me what I need. I need the BG color behind this item to be completely flush with the sides of the menu.
I had already checked the menu system thoroughly before contacting you and I was well aware of the option.. but as you can see this is not the solution. It is very important to me that this looks perfect, and what I need is not built into this menu by default.. I need another solution. A: You should set the following parameter:
You can also try to paste separators between items.
Can I ask a technical question? I am using the menu in a frameset, and I would like for the drop down menu selected branch to sty highlighted after the user moves the mouse to another window (where the menu brings up a new page), just so the user knows where he/she is. Is that possible? A: But if you open links in the another frame (window) the initial frame with your menu isnot reloaded, so the clicked item will be highlighted.
You should set the following parameters:
You can also set the following parameter to save menu state:
If you install the menu without frames. On your pages you should call the following function/functions to expand/highlight items, for example:
dtreet_ext_expandItem (dtreet_ext_getItemIDByIndex (0, 0), 1);
dtreet_ext_setPressedItem (0, dtreet_ext_getItemIDByIndex (0, 1));
