Recent Questions Script Tree Menu Howto

Q: Navigation bar code should indicate with on which page I me just considers..
(with anothercolour of the font of the active Link from the navigation, or an underline, bolder font, ...).

A: JavaScript Tree Menu has only two states normal and mouseover,
but you can highlight menu items in two ways:

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,

for example:

<noscript><a href="http://deluxe-menu.com">Javascript Menu by Deluxe-Menu.com</a></noscript>
<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: How do you change the back ground color of the menu?
menuBackColor just changes the pull down background.
I'm stuck with a blue background which i guess is the default.

I've looked at the parameters page for info, tried a few different items but none worked for changing the background.

I'm sure its something very obvious, but any help would be appreciated.

A: Please, don't forget to change also item background colors:

  var itemBackColor = ["color", "color"];



Q: Are vertical menus also supported, because I don't see any in the javascript menu examples?

A: Yes, you can create vertical menu with JavaScript Tree Menu.

You should set this parameter:

  var isHorizontal=0;

See one of the javascript menu examples here:

Q: It appears that this product only supports IE (on the PC and Mac). It does not support Safari or Netscape on any platform. Is that correct?

I ask because I like the product and would like to purchase the developer\'s license but our users represent a wide range of platforms and browsers.


A: DHTML products support a major part of modern browsers:

IE 5+
Opera 5+
Mozilla/Firefox
NS 6+

Also they support MAC browsers: Safari, IE, Firefox.
But DHTML Menu has some problems on this browsers with a submenuspositioning in some cases.

If you can't see Tree Menu in Firefox you should set these parameters:

Try to specify units in "px".
  var tmenuWidth = "280px";
It's necessary to specify exact value for Mozilla browsers. It helpsto position menus correctly.

You should set this parameter:
  var tmenuHeight = "auto";
