Q: I want to set up dhtml tab on my page, and have HTML code inside the tab,
rather than have the tab be a link.
I'm having trouble figuring this out. Can you help?
In other words, when a user clicks on a tab, I want a table to display below
the tabs instead of it being a link.

A: See in Deluxe Tabs there are two modes:

1.   var tabMode=0;
You can create only one level of tabs and assign Object Id's of the
DIV's to show when you click on the tab.

["XP Tab 1","content1", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", ],
["XP Tab 2","content2", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", ],
["XP Tab 3","content3", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", ],
["XP Tab 4","content4", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", ],

2.   var tabMode=1;
You can assign only links in this mode.
You should create top level items with subitems.

["XP Tab 1","", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", ],
 ["|Link 1_1","http://deluxe-tabs.com", "", "", "", "", "0", "", "", ],
 ["|Link 1_2","testlink.htm", "", "", "", "", "0", "", "", ],
 ["|Link 1_3","testlink.htm", "", "", "", "", "0", "", "", ],
 ["|Link 1_4","testlink.htm", "", "", "", "", "0", "", "", ],
 ["|Link 1_5","testlink.htm", "", "", "", "", "0", "", "", ],
["XP Tab 2","", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", ],
 ["|Link 2_1","testlink.htm", "", "", "", "", "0", "", "", ],
 ["|Link 2_2","testlink.htm", "", "", "", "", "0", "", "", ],
 ["|Link 2_3","testlink.htm", "", "", "", "", "0", "", "", ],
 ["|Link 2_4","testlink.htm", "", "", "", "", "0", "", "", ],
 ["|Link 2_5","testlink.htm", "", "", "", "", "0", "", "", ],
["XP Tab 3","", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", ],
 ["|Link 3_1","testlink.htm", "", "", "", "", "0", "", "", ],
 ["|Link 3_2","testlink.htm", "", "", "", "", "0", "", "", ],
 ["|Link 3_3","testlink.htm", "", "", "", "", "0", "", "", ],
 ["|Link 3_4","testlink.htm", "", "", "", "", "0", "", "", ],
 ["|Link 3_5","testlink.htm", "", "", "", "", "0", "", "", ],

You can use Object ID as well as Link in both modes. Use the following prefixes within item's link field:
"object:" - means that there is object id after it;
"link:" - means that there is a link after it.
"javascript:" - means that there is a javascript code after it, for example:javascript:alert(\'Hello!\')

So, you should write for example:

 ["|Link 1_1","object:Content1_1", "", "", "", "", "0", "", "", ],




Q: Also I have a problem getting the separator to show in my javascript right click menu. I have individual settings for the main menu items. I then tried to place an after item image, and they will show, though then the mouseover image does not work.

A: To add a separator you should

//--- Separators
  var separatorImage=""; //for subitems (top items in vertical javascript right click menu)
  var separatorWidth="100%";
  var separatorHeight="3px";
  var separatorAlignment="right";
  var separatorVImage="separator.gif"; //for the top items (subitems items in vertical menu)
  var separatorVWidth="100%";
  var separatorVHeight="2px";
  var separatorPadding="";

You can create separators using menuItems (you can do it in DeluxeTuner, use "Add separator" button), for example:

  var menuItems = [
["item 1"],
["-"], // this item is separator
["item 2"],
];



Q: I’d like to know how to populate the navigation bar menu from a database?


A: Please, see the example of .php file.The content of .php file depends on your database structure.

<?php

// The example for PHP/MySQL.
// MySQL database has the table "menuTable" that contains data for menu items.
// The table has the following fields:
// 1. "text" - item text
// 2. "link" - item link
// 3. "icon1" - item icon (normal state)
// 4. "icon2" - item icon (mouseover state)
function getMenuItems()
{
$jsItems = '';

// Select all records from table "menuTable"
$allItems = mysql_query('SELECT * FROM menuTable;');

// Extract items data from database and build Javascript code for menuItems
while ($itemData=mysql_fetch_array($allItems))
{
$jsItems .= '["'.$itemData['text'].'", "'.$itemData['link'].'", "'.$itemData['icon1'].'", "'.$itemData['icon2'].'"],';
}

// Return Javascript code
return $jsItems;
}


?>

<script>
  var menuParam1 = value1;
  var menuParam2 = value2;
  var menuParam2 = value2;
...

  var menuItems = [

// Write Javascript code for menu items
echo getMenuItems();

?>

];
</script>


Q: Is there a javascript function that I can call that will return the ID or the Text value of the currently checked tab?

A: Unfortunately there is no such a function now.

There are such variables.

dtabs_tabs[menuN].b1 - dtabs_tabs[menuN].selectedItem
dtabs_tabs[menuN].JT0 - dtabs_tabs[menuN].selectedSmItem

But they contain the index of the selected menu item, not the ID.
