Javascript Tree Menu. Expandable Menu.

  • You can set default expanded/collapsed items and submenus.
  • After clicking on menu item selected item becomes highlighted.
  • When the submenu is larger than the visible area of the page the submenu will be automatically decreased. To see all the submenu items you do not need to use scrollbars or something like that - just put your mouse to the bottom of a submenu and it will be automatically scrolled! You can also specify height and width for each separate submenu.
  • There is no need to write additional code on a server side to remember what items were expanded/collapsed. Javascript/DHTML Tree can save items state automatically!

Recent Questions Prototype Based Tree Menu

Q: We have a problem with the submenus going cross-frame.
Whenever there is a webpage from another website in the content/target-frame the frameset twists and all the pages are shown in the topframe. A lot of the information on our web is in office word-files and when they are opened in the content/target-frame the same cross-frame-problem happens. Is it only possible for the sub-menus to go cross-frame when one of our own webpages is shown in the target-frame?

A: See more info about cross-frame mode here:

Notice, the menu will work correctly in the cross-frame mode if you load pages into the sub frame from the same domain.
If you load pages from another domain submenus won't be shown in the subframe - they will be shown in the frame with the top-menu.
It's caused by a security policy of browsers - a script can't modify a content of pages from another domain.

Q: Can you please write me, can I have the active menu button in the javascript menu generator different color display.

A: The menu has only two states normal and mouseover.

Try to do the following things:

- delete   var pressedItem=1; parameter from your data file
- set correct parameter on each page before you call data file, forexample:

<noscript><a href="">Javascript Menu by</a></noscript>
<script type="text/javascript">  var dmWorkPath = "menudir/";</script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="menudir/dmenu.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">  var pressedItem=3;</script>

<script type="text/javascript" src="menudir/data.js"></script>

You can also set a pressed item using Javascript API:

function dm_ext_setPressedItem (menuInd, submenuInd, itemInd, recursion)

Sets a current pressed item.
menuInd - index of a menu on a page, >= 0.
submenuInd - index of a submenu, >= 0.
itemInd - index of an item, >=0.
recursion = true/false - highlight parent items.
But notice, to use dm_ext_setPressedItem() you should know ID of selected item and subitem.
You can't get this ID after you reload your page. That is why you should write your own code on PHP.

Q: When using the tab menu css the third item in the second tab seems to have a mind of its own.а will not take the attributes of all other tabs.

Have tried to force it to comply be creating an individual style just for that button...but that doesn't work either.

have spent (wasted) much time trying to get this to work.а What is the problem?ааа Very frustrated.

A: This tab differs from other tabs because it is selected tab. You'veset:

  var bselectedSmItem=10;

You can try to set it in the following way:

  var bselectedSmItem=0;

Q: I did have a question. I cannot seem to figure out how to get the individual menu styles to be applied to any of my items for thenavigation bar through the Deluxe Tuner. I’ve looked through through your documentation, but I cannot find anything that explains to me how I do this in the Deluxe Tuner.

A: To create Individual styles click "Edit Individual Styles..." button.

1) In the "Individual Styles" window click "Add Style", enter the nameof the new style.
2) Edit parameters of your style
4) Click "OK" button.
5) Select items (you can use Ctrl and Shift buttons to select group ofitems) and assign "Item Style"/"Submenu Style" to it. (in the "Item Parameters" window)
