Q: I have a quick question: I have an iframe menu item (see note 1) for the dhtml menu sample,
and when I click a link in that iframe, I would like to close the menu.
Is this possible, perhaps by using a javascript call?

A: You couldn't close the menu, you can only hide it.
You can try touse the following code to hide the menu.

   ["||test menuitem
<iframe src='test.php' onClick='document.getElementById(\'dm0m0\').style.visibility=\'hidden\';'
></iframe>","", , , , ,"0" , , , ],

You can also place your Iframe in DIV tag with indents.

   ["||test menuitem
<div style='padding: 10px;'><iframesrc='test.php'
onClick='document.getElementById(\'dm0m0\').style.visibility=\'hidden\';'></iframe></div>","", , , , ,"0" , , , ],

Q: The items of the flash drop down menu hides behind the video. Do you have other suggestions?

A: You should add "opaque" parameter for <object> and <embed> tags, for example:

<object width="750" height="435">
<param value="" name="movie"/>
<param value="true" name="allowFullScreen"/>
<param value="always" name="allowscriptaccess"/>
<param name="wmode" value="opaque">
<embed width="750" height="435" allowfullscreen="true" wmode="opaque" allowscriptaccess="always" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" src=""/>

Q: I am using JavaScript Tree Menu and I had a question.

When you roll your mouse over the menu items, the background color of that menu item changes (it becomes darker). Is there a way to establish a setting such that when a Menu Item is CLICKED, the color of that Menu Item STAYS darker. This will help the user know which category of the website they are currently visiting.

Please let me know. Thanks!

A: The menu has only two states normal and mouseover. We'll try to add the pressed state in the future.

You can 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: I am trying to figure out how to specify the css for the top css dropdown menu.

I saw this in some of the example code, but there was nothing similar in Deluxe Tuner

  var itemStyles = [

["CSS=topItemNormal,topItemOver","CSSText=topItemTextNormal,topItemTextOver" ],
  var menuStyles = [

I tried adding the above to my js code, but it didn't work. I can get it to work in non-css through Deluxe Tuner.

I am trying to draw a white border around the blue css dropdown menu

border-width: 1px;
border-style: solid;
border-color: White;

/* Style for submenus */

/* Style for top items: normal state */
text-decoration: none;
FONT-SIZE: 11pt;
FONT-FAMILY: Verdana, Arial;
padding:2px 4px;

A:   var itemStyles = [

  var menuStyles = [

The following code is Individual Styles. You can edit them in DeluxeTuner.

Open your data file, click "Edit Individual Styles..." button on themain window. And create individual item style and individual submenustyle. Then you should assign these styles to your items.
