Javascript Tree Menu. Expandable Menu.

  • Tune menu parameters manually or using Deluxe Tuner. Then add several rows of a code within html page - your menu is ready!
  • Use special JavaScript functions for: Dynamic changing of items (text, link, icons and even individual style!). Making a menu item active/disabled. Addition/removing of items. Changing of visibility of items. Collapsing/expanding of items. Getting the information on any menu, submenu and items. Other tricks. But for all that it's not necessary to insert any additional code into all the pages - just specify some additional parameters of the menu.

Q: I just don't understand the 'concept" of how It should be put into my html page.
I plan on having more than one menu on my page. and this would be an example of one of the drp down menus I want on it. I'm fairly new to making a webpage, but this menu is what I would like on my page.
sorry for being a little slow at this, I DO LOVE how it lays out and cant wait to get it to work on my webpage.


A: 1. Create your menu in Deluxe Tuner application.
You can create any menu as you like in Deluxe Tuner.

Deluxe Tuner v2.4 supports JavaScript Tree Menu (http://deluxe-menu.com) &Javascript/DHTML Tree (http://deluxe-tree.com) & Deluxe Tabs (http://deluxe-tabs.com)

You can use ready to use templates. You can find them in the templateswindow.

When you open Deluxe Tuner ( JavaScript Tree Menu ) you can click "File/New"and add items and subitems using buttons "Add Item" and "Add Subitem" onthe main window.
You should set items and subitems parameters on the "Item Parameters"window.
See also other parameters for the menu on the main window.

More info about menu parameters you can find on our site (you can alsouse local version of the site which you can find in the trial package"JavaScript Tree Menu / deluxe-menu.com /")
http://deluxe-menu.com/parameters-info.html
http://deluxe-menu.com/menu-items-info.html

You can also use Individual Styles for items and subitems
http://deluxe-menu.com/individual-item-styles-info.html
http://deluxe-menu.com/individual-submenu-styles-info.html

2. You should install the menu on your page.
You can click, for example, File/Export to HTML (you can't do it inthe MAC version).

Add several rows into your html page.

<head>
...
<!-- JavaScript Tree Menu -->
<noscript><a href="http://deluxe-menu.com">Javascript Menu by Deluxe-Menu.com</a></noscript>
<script type="text/javascript">  var dmWorkPath="deluxe-menu.files/";</script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="deluxe-menu.files/dmenu.js"></script>

...
</head>

<body>
...
<table>
<tr><td><script type="text/javascript" src="deluxe-menu.files/data.js"></script></td></tr> //data.js - data file created in Deluxe Tuner.
</table>
...
</body>

You should also copy all engine files
dmenu.js
dmenu4.js
dmenu_add.js
dmenu_dyn.js
dmenu_key.js
dmenu_cf.js
dmenu_popup.js
dmenu_ajax.js
into "deluxe-menu.files/" folder. You should place this folder in thesame folder with your index. html page.

If you want to install several menus on the one page you should writethe following code once

<!-- JavaScript Tree Menu -->
<noscript><a href="http://deluxe-menu.com">Javascript Menu by Deluxe-Menu.com</a></noscript>
<script type="text/javascript">  var dmWorkPath="deluxe-menu.files/";</script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="deluxe-menu.files/dmenu.js"></script>
And then call your data files several times.
<script type="text/javascript" src="deluxe-menu.files/data.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="deluxe-menu.files/data1.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="deluxe-menu.files/data2.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="deluxe-menu.files/data3.js"></script>

Try that.


Q: I use the apy menu inside a table cell and it has 6 sub menus. The table width is 600 so I would like to have each sub menu with width 100 and each item with the same width. I use menuWidth=100 and itemWidth=100 but it doesn't work, each menu has a different size depending on the label.
Also, each sub menu label can fit in less than 100 but I really want the width to be 100 so it looks consistant across the full menu.
What am I doing wrong ?


A: You should use individual item styles. For example:

  var itemStyles = [
["itemWidth=100px"],
];

["DHTML
Menus","", "", "", , , "0", , , , , ],
...
["Apycom
products","", "", "", , , "0", , , , , ],
...
["Contacts","http://www.apycom.com/contact.html", "", "", , , "0", , , , , ],

See the attached example.


Q: I want to be able to pull information into dynamic drop down menu from the mysql database.


A: You may generate a menu from a database or XML using any server-side script, e.g., PHP, ASP, VB, etc.
However, these scripts don't work inside of Javascript .js files, so,
you should move parameters of a menu from a .js file into an html-page, e.g.:

<!-- JavaScript Tree Menu -->
<noscript><a href="http://deluxe-menu.com">Javascript Menu by Deluxe-Menu.com</a></noscript>
<script type="text/javascript">  var dmWorkPath = "menudir/";</script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="menudir/dmenu.js"></script>
<!-- (c) 2008, http://deluxe-menu.com -->

<script type="text/javascript" language="JavaScript1.2">
// and describe parameters of a menu
  var parameter1=value1;
  var parameter2=value2;
etc.

  var menuItems = [
// here you generate items using server-side scripts (php, asp, vb, etc.)
];
</script>

The example of the menu working with PHP/MYSQL you can find here:

Q: I do have issues. There are not the problems when you are on the home page (you can click on one of the dropdown submenus and go there.
However, when you try to go to another page from there to another page on a nother drop down, nothing happens except javascript erros. The dropdowns physical work, in that they drop down, but the links don't go anywhere. Does that make sense.


A: See, the problem was in your dmWorkPath parameter

On all pages placed in the subfolder you should write it in thefollowing way:

<script type="text/javascript">  var dmWorkPath = "../ifnav.files/";</script>

Please, correct it.

You should also use additional parameters to make menu paths absolute:

  var pathPrefix_img = "http://domain.com/images/";
  var pathPrefix_link = "http://www.infocusnet.org/design/";

These parameters allow to make images and links paths absolute.
For example:

  var pathPrefix_img = "http://domain.com/images/";
  var pathPrefix_link = "http://www.infocusnet.org/design/";

  var menuItems = [
["text", "index.html", "icon1.gif", "icon2.gif"],
];

So, link path will be look so:
http://domain.com/pages/index.html

Images paths will be look so:
http://domain.com/images/icon1.gif

Please, use pathPrefix_link parameter.
