Recent Questions Scriptaculous Tree Menu

Q: What can I do to optimize the load time for dhtml rollover
and prevent reloading it from the server with every page reload.

A: You can try to use AJAX technology.

AJAX-like technology: data for submenus can be loaded "on-the-fly" from the server.

New parameter:
  var tajax = 0/1; - disables/enables AJAX-like support

Current syntax for item parameters (  var tmenuItems):
[text, link, iconNormal, iconOver, iconExpanded, tip, target, itemStyleInd, itemXPStyleInd, jsFileName]

Where jsFileName - .js filename on the server with submenu items (  var tmenuItems).



Q: Are there the possibility to have the dhtml menu code into an external file so that nothing of the dhtml menu code will appear on my html code?

A: Menu has data.js (by default) data file with menu parameters, itemsand styles and 9 engine files.
You should only call two .js files on your html page.

Q: I am really confused by all of this. Perhaps I should state that I am computer savvy, however, I am not at all familiar with javascript or html. I was hoping to use the deluxe tuner to avoid having to deal with any of this.

I removed deluxe tuner and deluxe menu from my computer and reinstalled both. When I went to download the license key, I extracted the file from the ZIP file and replaced the files that were downloaded with the free version.

I am now ready to re-create my menu. It says to edit my data file. When I try to do that it will NOT open. It says my computer does not have the right program? What do I need?

Also, once I have created the menu in Deluxe tuner, where should I save it? In the folder where my website pages are saved? Again, I am using Yahoo sitebuilder, so I am not exactly sure where I should save it in these folders?

Furthermore, when I tried to save a file before I removed Deluxe tuner and reloaded it, It would ask me if I wanted to copy all my files? What is that and what is the purpose?

You should open your data file with the menu in any text editor andadd your reg. key.
Try that.

> Also, once I have created the menu in Deluxe tuner, where should I save it?
You can save your data file in any place and then copy to the rightplace.

If you click yes, Deluxe Tuner save also all engine .js files and allyour images into "data.files/" folder.

You can also click Export->To HTML.
So you'll have html page with your menu and folder with engine .jsfiles and images.

So you should to do the following things:
1. open your page in Yahoo's SiteBuilder
2. open generated with Deluxe Tuner html source code of the page i anytext editor
3. copy such lines from html source code


<noscript><a href="http://deluxe-menu.com">Javascript Menu by Deluxe-Menu.com</a></noscript>
<script type="text/javascript">  var dmWorkPath = "data.files/";</script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="data.files/dmenu.js"></script>


and add them in you <head> tag.

Then find such line, for example:

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

and add it in you tag in the place where you want to have themenu. For example, you can paste it in <table> or <div> tag:

<table>
<tr><td><script type="text/javascript" src="data.files/data.js"></script></td></tr>
</table>

or
<div align=center>
<script type="text/javascript" src="data.files/data.js"></script>
</div>

For info see:

You should also copy "data.files/" folder in the right place. In thefolder where you have you index.html page, created in Yahoo'sSiteBuilder.


Q: How do I expand the length of the vista html drop menu tab images to accommodate longer text? If the text is "Special Event Programs", the arrows are outside the tab in another partial one.  I am using the Vista style tabs (black_blue / tealblack).

Is there any way other than definition of new image files to get more color combos?

Can I change the text size in the menu tabs?  When I use the Tuner, it has no effect.


A: Try to use image-based menu.

Set:

  var menuWidth="92px";
  var menuHeight="";

and create the following style:

  var itemStyles = [

["itemBackImage=WANmenu.files/btn_magenta-back.gif,WANmenu.files/btn_magentablack-back.gif",
"beforeItemImage=WANmenu.files/btn_magenta-left.gif,WANmenu.files/btn_magentablack-left.gif","afterItemImage=WANmenu.files/btn_magenta-right.gif,WANmenu.files/btn_magentablack-right.gif","beforeItemImageW=10","afterItemImageW=10","beforeItemImageH=21","afterItemImageH=21",
"itemBorderWidth=0","fontStyle=normal11px Tahoma","fontColor=#FFFFFF,#FFFFFF"],
