Recent Questions Scriptaculous Tree Menu

Q: Thank you for such an excellent product. I have a question pertaining to the submenu items in your tree-menu line. My menus are 540px wide and contain lots of text with good sized pictures (icons). Can I use an iframe tag inside of the css menu submenu instead of simple text with this icon?

A: You are able to paste any html code within items.
So you can paste a form too.

For example:

  var menuItems = [
...
   ["||<nobr><FORM method=GET action='http://www.google.com/custom'><input name='as_q' value='search
the web' size=15 style='font-size:10'> <INPUT type=hidden name=cof
value='LW:144;L:http://domain.edu/images/sulogo.gif;LH:45;AH:center;GL:0;S:
http://domain.edu;AWFID:e01cb67b8afe383e;'></form></nobr>","",

Q: In javascriptcoding I have id of the submenu. How can retrieve id of the parent menu item in the drop-down menus?

A: You can try to use the following function

function dm_ext_getSubmenuParams (menuInd, submenuInd)

Returns submenu parameters in the array:
[submenu_id, items_count, parent_item_id, submenu_level, is_horizontal]

menuInd - index of a menu on a page, >= 0.
submenuInd - index of a submenu, >= 0.

Using this function you can retrieve the parent_item_id.

Q: I would like when I click on what ever link of the php dhtml menu that the visited link stay in a different color and with a different background

A: Javascript/DHTML Tree doesn't save a presseditem as it saves a tree state. It works within 1 page only and if youreload the page you should set a pressed item using Javascript API:

function dtreet_ext_setPressedItem (menuInd, itemID)

Please, see here:
http://deluxe-tree.com/functions-info.html

You can also set
  var tsaveState = 1;

More info you can find
http://deluxe-tree.com/data-samples/tree-menuxp-save-state.htm

To expand specific items you should use API functionfunction dtreet_ext_expandItem (itemID, expand)

Q: I am trying to install a search engine on my site and am having trouble due to my use of your tree-menu system, which I love by the way.  I really need to find a compatible script that will search your javascript menu system, or at the very least search another file with mirrored links.  I DO NOT want to add the links to each page, this is why I love your menu's, there is one central location to change navigation statewide.

Do you know if there is a search script that can do this( js, php) or is there a way to make your javascript tree menus accessible to the search engine?


A: You can generate search engine friendly code.
Javascript/DHTML Tree is a search engine friendly menu since v2.4.
To create a search engine friendly menu you should add additional html code within your html page:

<div id="dmlinks">
<a href="http://deluxe-menu.com">menu_item_text1</a>
<a href="http://deluxe-tree.com">menu_item_text2</a>
...etc.
</div>

To generate such a code use Deluxe Tuner application.
You can find this GUI in the trial package.
Run Tuner, load your menu and click Tools/Generate SE-friendly Code (F3).
