Recent Questions Lightweight Css Tree MenuQ: I'm looking at evaluating your Deluxe menu software for inclusion in our current web based software solution and am particularly taken with the 'Ajax style' loading.
Could you please answer a couple of questions with respect to that.
At what point does it load those file ¦ initially when menu is drawn (so multiple small hits to app server) or when the user selects the menu? Does the link href *have* to be a .js file ¦ or can it be any valid file type that returns the correct data? I have to generate the menu options dynamically from a DB and therefore really need to include a JSP style file.
Our current menu system (made up of 4 levels deep contains over 300 links, which is why I want to minimise server hit as much as possible!
A: It loads when the user move his mouse above the menu items.
You can use any extension for these files. But the file structureshould be the same as in our example.
Q: We need Asian fonts to be displayed on the menu. Is there any way that we can really make it happen?
The constraint is we have to display the drop down in Cross Frame and Cross Domain environment.
Your inputs will be really appreciated.
A: You can use any font in your menu.
You should install the font on your computer.
The only issue is that submenus can be shown in incorrect positionwhen you're using dir=rtl for your page.
var dmRTL = 0;
Set this parameter to 1 if you're using right-to-left direction of html page <HTML dir=rtl>.Use also var smViewType = 2;for right-to-left languages.
Q: We are using a licensed copy of Deluxe-Menu but in Internet Explorer 7.0 it displays an incorrect copyright message even though all parameters are included and the key is correct. Help! We cannot leave our web site up in this condition!
A: To add a separator you should
var separatorImage=""; //for subitems (top items in vertical menu)
var separatorVImage="separator.gif"; //for the top items (subitems items in vertical menu)
You can create separators using menuItems (you can do it in DeluxeTuner, use "Add separator" button), for example:
["||All Images","gallery_all.html", , , , "_self", , , , ],
["||Pricing & Ordering Info","gallery_pricing.html", , , ,"_self", , , , ],
Try that. You can also send us a copy of your html page (including .js files) ora direct link to your website, so we can check it.
