What we want is, when a user enters our site from the index (home) page then clicks on a link and the sub-page opens, for the dhtml menu tree to be open to the section the user is in and viewing. We also DO NOT want the browser to save the state of the menu, since that is inconsistent with where the user is in the site. Note: we do not use the Menu on the home page, is this a problem?
Per your tech support email, I've added the expand code, which works going from the home page to sub-pages. However, it interferes with navigating to other sub-pages once your in the site. The menu doesn't keep the section open, it closes back up. You mentioned the expand code has to be entered on every page....is that so in this instance and if so, that's a maintenance nightmare - does a better way exist for this type of menu?
Then we activated the "save state" option and the menu stays open on the sub-pages, but the expand option doesn't work.
It's like they cancel each other out and you can only have one or the other.
Can I get these two to work together? What do I need to do? Is it better to use the XP-style menu?
A: When user clicks the link, the browser loads a new page and the script re-create the dhtml menu tree.
If you want to open the needed section automatically on load you can use the following:
1. Save the state to cookies
2. Use frames
3. Put the special script on each page of site that will open appropriate section.
Q: I want to have the dhtml popup display as you mouse over an image - is this possible?
A: For example you want to open a popup onMouseover, onClick oronMouseout on a link.
So, you should create a link on your page and set id="" for it, forexample:
In Deluxe Tuner you should set:
onMouseOver - over
onMouseOut - out
onClick - link
So you'll have
Q: I purchased your product yesterday and was quite impressed, but I am having a bit of a problem with my submenuitems.
In the general menu properties there is a "Global" var titemHeight = 22;
My problem is that I would like my upper level of my drop down menu to have one itemheight and my submenuitems to have a smaller height. Is this possible?
A: In the XP Style
the item's height for the top items and submenus will be different.
If you want to use
you can set ite's height for the submenus:
And for other items use the blank icon with the height you want to have for the upper level of your menu items.
Q: I do not see any samples of the code and pages necessary for the drop down menu js works in a cross frame..
A: 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(); to dm_initFrame("frmSet", 0, 1, 0);
