Recent Questions Script Tree Menu Howto

Q: I have implemented a deluxe-menu on my client's website and I had a couple of questions.

1. Can I control how fast the submenus scroll in my javascript menu examples? If you look at the site and hover over Need An Expert? on the menu and then point to Practice Areas, this submenu seems to scroll slower than if you mouse over "Technology" and scroll that submenu. The Technology submenu scrolls a lot faster. Is it because there are many more items in the Technology submenu? I tried to find a setting for "scroll speed" or the like, but I couldn't find it.

2. In internet explorer, when you mouse over Need An Expert?, Technology the first time you go to the page, there is a 3-4 second delay before the submenu opens. There are a lot of submenu items under Technology, but in Firefox, there doesn't seem to be this delay. Do you know why this would happen in IE? Is there a way to fix it? Could the problem be that each submenu item has a background graphic and this is causing the delay?

3. When you get to a page on the site and you rollover the top level menu, there is also a delay before the background image of the menu items shows up. You get a solid blue background color for a second or two (the bgcolor assigned) and then the graphic loads and shows up. Is there any way around this? I have a javascript to preload the image (back.jpg) but that doesn't seem to help.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!

A: 1. The scroll speed depends on number of items to be scrolled, more items -> faster scroll.
You can decrease the number of items or enlarge the size of submenu.

2,3. Please try to add the following param:

  var dm_writeAll = 1;

It will load all backgrounds on page load, no on mouseover.



Q: You will see I got the first level looking amazing.. this is exactly what I wanted. The interesting thing I figured out was not to use the item border.. this was messing things up. You may notice that when each item highlights.. there is a 1px white line at the separators.. but this is not produced with the item border, but rather from the separator itself which I made in two 1 pixel lines, one blue, on white.. this created that effect.

So now my only problem left is to figure out how to bring this look into the submenus. I was thinking it would be nice to use the separators in the same way throughout the submenus. There does not however seem to be a way to do this. When I tried inserting a separator into a submenu.. nothing happened... I am probably doing this wrong.

Can you please show me how to create the same look I have in the first level in the submenus.. this would be helpful.

I must say, this menu is finally starting to look the way I originally envisioned it. I am very happy. =o)

Thank you so much for all the help you have given me.


A: To add separators in submenus you should write it so:

 ["|-",] //first level submenus
   ["||-",] //second level submenus
and so on.

Try that.


Q: I looked through your FAQ's to solve my problem of trying to make the background of the top dhtml slide menu transparent. I set the itemBackColor to transparent and also menuBackColor to transparent. Do I have to changeanother setting to activate this? Right now it is currently white and I can't even find a spot that would make it white, unless it's just white by default.

A: Check that you haven't set background color in the Individual Styles.

Q: Please let us know how to select the font and background colors using the hexidecimal number?
We have another website and want to use the exact same color scheme.
We want to enter the number such as FF8080.

Hopefully, we can enter the hex numbers into this program.


A: You should write, for example, so:

  var menuBackColor = "#FF8080";
  var menuBorderColor = "#FF8080";
  var itemBackColor = ["#FF8080","#FF8080"];
  var itemBorderColor = ["#FF8080","#FF8080"];
  var fontColor = ["#000000","#FFFFFF"];
