I am trying to put the menu in the left column of the table, a form on the right side, and then center the entire table.
The html table is surrounded by a center tag (have tried a div tag with no difference).
It appears the xp menu is obeying the center tag, but not keeping it relative to the containing table...
How can I fix this issue? I have also attached the html source code as it is rendered in the browser in case that is of some use.
A: You should set the following parameter:
var tabsolute = 0;
You're using absolute position for the menu now.
Q: I want to be able to have all of the submenus start at the top of the menu. For example, when I hover across each of my menu items in a vertical level, I want the sublevel menu to start at the very top of the menu, not out beside the menu option. How can I achieve this
A: You can have such effect only for the first subitems.
Others subitems will have Y offset.
Please, see the attached example.
You should adjust the following parameters:
What I mean is I'd like to be able to open the page in a new window, so I'd need to specify the href as well as "target=_new" (in HTML anyway).
A: You can set target parameter for all items:
Where main - is the name of the main middle frame where you want to open the link.
or for each item individually:
["Home","testlink.html", "", "", "", "_blank", "", "", "", "", "", ],
Q: Can data be loaded dynamically?
For example, can your dhtml menu source code load the child of a node once the node is clicked on?
A: You can use AJAX like technology.
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.)
The example of the menu working with PHP/MYSQL you can find here:
