Recent Questions Portable Tree Menu

Q: Having purchased JavaScript Tree Menu and I am having a problem with the simple javascript menu I have created. The menu works fine when I view the html page generated by Deluxe Tuner but when I put it into my own html page the submenus are appearing above the simple javascript menu and not below as required. How do i stop this from happening please?

A: Try to adjust the following parameter:

  var subMenuVAlign="top";
or
  var subMenuVAlign="bottom";



Q: I want javascript navigation menu to lock into place when someone visits a page. Is there a way to do this?

A: Try to set the pressed item using the following API function:
function dm_ext_setPressedItem (menuInd, submenuInd, itemInd, recursion, parentOpen)
Sets a current pressed item.
menuInd - index of a dynamic menu on a page, >= 0.
submenuInd - index of a submenu, >= 0.
itemInd - index of an item, >=0.
recursion = true/false - highlight parent items.
parentOpen = true/false - open all submenus to show the selected item

See example here:
http://deluxe-menu.com/highlighted-items-sample.html

Try to click 'Highlight "Product Info/Installation/Description ofFiles" item'.

You can also try to use the following parameter:
  var smHidePause = 1000;
A delay (in ms) between mouse is moved from submenu and its closing.
You can make submenus to stay visible till you click outside the menu or scroll your page.
To enable this feature you should set this parameter in the following way:   var smHidePause = -1;



Q: I will build menu for several books’ Contents, each book is more than 100 lines and has links. I think if all the books’ contents in 1 *.JS file then it is TOO LOONG!!.
Can I break it down to 1 book for 1*.JS ? How?


A: You cannot divide your menuItems parameter.
You can only use one .js file for your menu parameters and the other.js file for your menuItems = [...];

But you can do it in two ways.

1) You can try to use several menus on the one page, for example:
param.js // file with menu parameters (all parameters before menuItems = [...];)
menu1.js // menuItems for "AC-DC", "ANLOG"
menu2.js // menuItems for "DIGITAL", "WinXP"
menu3.js // menuItems for "MS-Word", "MS-Excel"
In these menu files you should write
menuItems = [
...
];
dm_init();

Then you should install your menu in the following way

<script type="text/javascript" src="param.js"></script>
<table>
...
<script type="text/javascript" src="menu1.js"></script>
...
<script type="text/javascript" src="menu2.js"></script>
...
<script type="text/javascript" src="menu3.js"></script>

But it will be easier to use vertical menu in such case
  var isHorizontal=0;
  var smColumns=1;

2) You can also try to add some code, see the attached example.

In the first file (@MY books (Multiple Col.js) I write menuItems for the first item "AC-DC".
Notice that you should delete comma at the end of the last item
  var menuItems = [

["AC-DC","", , , , , , , , ],
 ["|@Book1","testlink.htm", , , , , , , , ],
...
 ["|@Book3","", , , , , , , , ],
   ["||CH02","", , , , , , , , ],
   ["||CH01","", , , , , , , , ] // delete comma at the end of the last item

];

In the second file (@MY books (1.js) you should write
menuItems = menuItems.concat(

[

["ANLOG","", , , , , , , , ],
 ["|@Book1","", , , , , , , , ],
 ["|@Book2","", , , , , , , , ],
 ["|@Book3","", , , , , , , , ] // delete comma at the end of the last item

]
);

In the third file (@MY books (2.js) you should write
menuItems = menuItems.concat(

[

["DIGITAL","", , , , , , , , ],
 ["|Item 1332","", , , , , , , , ],
["WinXP","", , , , , , , , ],
 ["|Item 1333","", , , , , , , , ],
["MS-Word","", , , , , , , , ],
 ["|Item 1334","", , , , , , , , ],
["MS-Excel","", , , , , , , , ],
 ["|Item 1335","", , , , , , , , ] // delete comma at the end of the last item
]
);

dm_init();

Notice that you should write dm_init(); function in the last file.

In the .html file you should write
...
<tr>
<script type="text/javascript" src="@MY books (Multiple Col.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="@MY books (1.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="@MY books (2.js"></script>
</tr>
I hope you understand me.


Q: I have an HTML application with 4 iframes. The main html file contains 3 iframes (top toolbar, left toolbar, and main area) and the menu. The main area iframe contains one additional iframe were the actual data is. When I interact with the data in this last iframe and try to dynamically change the menu in the .html file I get the error message: 'm' is null or not an object

The API call is:

dm_ext_addItem(0, 0, ["test1", "testlink.htm", "", "", "test1m", "_blank", "1"]);

I only have one menu.

I am using IE6

I included these files in both the hta file and the iframe source file.

<script type="text/javascript" src="./data.files/dmenu.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="./data.files/dmenu_dyn.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="./data.files/dmenu_key.js"></script>


A: JavaScript Tree Menu doesn't work with <IFrame> objects. It works with<frameset> objects only. All it can to do with <IFrame> is to loadpages into it.
You should use standard installation for the menu (cross-frame mode).

See more info here:
http://deluxe-menu.com/cross-frame-mode-sample.html
http://deluxe-menu.com/data-samples/cross-frame-horizontal-1-sample.htm

There is no need to call dmenu_...js files.

<script type="text/javascript" src="./data.files/dmenu.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="./data.files/dmenu_dyn.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="./data.files/dmenu_key.js"></script>

You should write:

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