Is there a way to use the smartscrolling function (for a vertical menu) on the MAIN menu instead of only for the submenu's? A: You can't use scrolling in the main menu. But if you have verylarge menu you can use multilevel menu,
Theoretically we can do scrolling in the main menu, but we think that it will be better touse multilevel menu in that case.
Thank you for your reply. I have run the example sent by you. Your dhtml menu example has horizontal menus and it hides all the menus.
But I am using xp vertical menu. In that I have Home,Sales,Customer Support,Reports,Access Control menus.
For Admin login I need all the menus including submenus.
But for employee login i need Home , Sales, Customer Support menus and i need only few sub menus only.
Please help me with this issue. A: You can try to use API functions in that case:
function dm_ext_changeItemVisibility (menuInd, submenuInd, itemInd, visibility)
I have been mostly creating my menus by starting with a template file that has the features I need, and then modifying that file by hand (as opposed to using the Tuner program). In this case I am using data-vista-01.js.
This is perfect. But I think to myself, surely I don't need all the .js files from the Menu directory, nor do I need all the .gif files from the Images directory, so I started deleting those files one at a time, until I got to the point where Images contained only the Vista1 folder + the empty.gif file, and the Menu folder contained only dmenu.js. My menu now not working.
I'm guessing that some graphic files need to draw the top-level menu bar are missing. But which ones?
So my question is, what files do I really need? Is this something the documentation describes, and if so where?
I hope I don't have to include the full contents of the Menu and Images folder, as they are quite large. A: Unfortunately, you should add all need images manually.
We'll try to correct it soon.
You can open your data.js file and see what images you're using in themenu and copy tese images into your folder.
You should also change the following parameter:
There is no need to use all engine files for the menu.
Description of files you can find here:
I’ve tried every configuration available—absolute and relativepositioning and so on. I can’t get the menus to display correctly.
I have to offset the topDX by -150 and so on just to fudge it into a CLOSE position…it certainly doesn’t mirror the preview window A: See, the problem is that the script can't get css properties of the object if they are described in separate .css block (or file).
In other words, you can't get the value of "position" attribute of the object if the object doesn't have this property within inline style(style="position:absolute"). To get the value you should move .css style into style="" attribute.
Please, try to add your
css file -> inline css, for example:
You should add style="position:absolute;"
So, you'll have:
<DIV id=navholder style="position:absolute;">
