Recent Questions Jquery Collapsable Tree Howto

Q: Is there a way to have the menu stay expanded in the same exact state when
I click on a menu item of the javascript tree view and go to a new page?

A: There is no need to write additional code on a server side to remember what items were expanded/collapsed.
DHTML Tree Menu can save items state automatically.
Please, see the example of the menu that works with cookies:
http://dhtml-menu.com/tree-examples/tree-menuxp-save-state.html

Set the following parameter:

  var tsaveState = 1;

and the menu remembers its structure for each user who visit your page.
Try to expand/collapse items. Then reload the page and you'll see results.


Q: I need to know if all these products are search engine friendly?
If the content within the javascript menu is easily spidered and indexed.?


A: JavaScript Tree Menu is a search engine friendly menu since v1.12.

To create a search engine friendly menu you should add additional html code within your html page:

<div id="dmlinks">
<a href="menu_link1">menu_item_text1</a>
<a href="menu_link2">menu_item_text2</a>
...etc.
</div>

To generate such a code use Deluxe Tuner application.
You can find this GUI in the trial package.
Run Tuner, load your menu and click Tools/Generate SE-friendly Code (F3).


Q: What I would like to see is the ability to have a base site navigation menu with all the definitional entries (size, locations, icons, etc.) defined but all the menuitems be called from an Ajax file.

A: You cannot use ajax submenus for the top items.
But you can use several .js file, for example:

params.js //file with all menu parameters (size, locations, icons, etc.)
all code before
  var menuItems = [
...
];
dm_init();

data_ajax1.js //data files for ajax submenus
data_ajax2.js
data_ajax3.js
...

main_data.js - data file with the following code:

  var menuItems = [
["Item 1","", "", "", "", "", "0", "0", "data_ajax1.js", "", "", ],
["Item 2","", "", "", "", "", "0", "0", "data_ajax2.js", "", "", ],
["Item 3","", "", "", "", "", "0", "0", "data_ajax3.js", "", "", ],
["Item 4","", "", "", "", "", "0", "0", "data_ajax4.js", "", "", ],
];
dm_init();

You can also place this code into your html page directly (in the place where you want tohave a menu):

<script type="text/javascript">
  var menuItems = [
["Item 1","", "", "", "", "", "0", "0", "data_ajax1.js", "", "", ],
["Item 2","", "", "", "", "", "0", "0", "data_ajax2.js", "", "", ],
["Item 3","", "", "", "", "", "0", "0", "data_ajax3.js", "", "", ],
["Item 4","", "", "", "", "", "0", "0", "data_ajax4.js", "", "", ],
];
dm_init();


Q: Can you please give me tips on how I can style all menuitems to have font bold when selected and normal font when not selected?

A: Unfortunately, Javascript/DHTML Tree doesn't have such a feature. You can onlyset it's color. You cannot set the font of menu item bold when selected.

You can set menu item's font bold onMouseover, see example here:
http://deluxe-tree.com/data-templates/vista-style-7-template-sample.html

You should addthe following code in your data file:

function changeFont(obj, over)
{
obj.style.fontWeight = over ? 'bold' : 'normal';
obj.style.fontSize = over ? '13px' : '12px'; // You can not use this line
}

  var tmenuItems = [

["<div onMouseOver='changeFont(this, 1)' onMouseOut='changeFont(this, 0)'>Security</div>","", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", ],
["<div onMouseOver='changeFont(this, 1)' onMouseOut='changeFont(this, 0)'>Ease of Access</div>","", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", ],
 ["|<div onMouseOver='changeFont(this, 1)' onMouseOut='changeFont(this, 0)'>Internet Options</div>","", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", ],
 ["|<div onMouseOver='changeFont(this, 1)' onMouseOut='changeFont(this, 0)'>Windows Firewall</div>","", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", ],
["<div onMouseOver='changeFont(this, 1)' onMouseOut='changeFont(this, 0)'>Network and Internet</div>","", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", ],
["<div onMouseOver='changeFont(this, 1)' onMouseOut='changeFont(this, 0)'>Hardware</div>","", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", ],
["<div onMouseOver='changeFont(this, 1)' onMouseOut='changeFont(this, 0)'>Programs</div>","", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", ],
["<div onMouseOver='changeFont(this, 1)' onMouseOut='changeFont(this, 0)'>Appearance</div>","", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", ],
 ["|<div onMouseOver='changeFont(this, 1)' onMouseOut='changeFont(this, 0)'>User Accounts</div>","", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", ],
 ["|<div onMouseOver='changeFont(this, 1)' onMouseOut='changeFont(this, 0)'>Personalization</div>","", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", ],
["<div onMouseOver='changeFont(this, 1)' onMouseOut='changeFont(this, 0)'>Sound and Speech</div>","", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", ],
["<div onMouseOver='changeFont(this, 1)' onMouseOut='changeFont(this, 0)'>Additional Options</div>","", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", ],
];

Please, notice also that you should add this function every time whenyou change your menu in Deluxe Tuner application, as Tuner deletesthis function.
