Recent Questions Sliding Tree Menus ScriptQ: Your service is excellent and I am making progress learning the program. I was able to resolve the transparency issue thanks to your help but, but now I have another one that is stumping me.
I can get the menu to show up in my html document and it works as I hoped it would. However, no matter where I put the line of code in my html file, the down menu in dhtml always shows up at the very top of the page. The instructions indicate the following:
Copy the following code into clipboard and paste it into the place you want to have the down menu in dhtml:
For example, into a table cell:
No matter where I put the code:
What am I missing?
A: Check that you're using relative position for the down menu in dhtml:
I have a menu with one "root" item. I see the use of the "+" symbol within the item name. I do not see any documentation regarding this symbol, only "|". Can you explain?
If I have one menu with this one "root" node, how would I add an subitem to this root node?
Here is my code so far, but the inserted items appear to be at the same level as the root node.
var rootItem = dtreet_ext_getItemIDByIndex ( 0,0 );
var menuItem = new Array(10);
for ( var i = 0; i < producers.length; i++ )
var producer = producers[ i ];
menuItem = producer.name;
dtreet_ext_insertItem ( 0, 0, i + 1, menuItem );
A: See dtreet_ext_insertItem () function has the following parameters:
function dtreet_ext_insertItem (menuInd, parentItemID, itemInd, itemParams)
Creates a new item and inserts it into a specified position.
parentItemID - ID property of an item.<, >= 0.
itemParams - item parameters.
Notice that parentItemID is the Id property of the parent item (notindex). If you want to add top items you should set parentItemID=0.
itemInd - you should use this parameter if you want to add item in thespecific place, for example set itemInd=5 if you want to add itembefore the existing item with itemInd=5.
If you set itemInd=null the new item will be added at the end of this submenu and its index will be added automatically.
Q: I just don't understand the 'concept" of how It should be put into my html page.
I plan on having more than one menu on my page. and this would be an example of one of the drp down menus I want on it. I'm fairly new to making a webpage, but this menu is what I would like on my page.
sorry for being a little slow at this, I DO LOVE how it lays out and cant wait to get it to work on my webpage.
A: 1. Create your menu in Deluxe Tuner application.
You can create any menu as you like in Deluxe Tuner.
You can use ready to use templates. You can find them in the templateswindow.
You should set items and subitems parameters on the "Item Parameters"window.
See also other parameters for the menu on the main window.
You can also use Individual Styles for items and subitems
2. You should install the menu on your page.
You can click, for example, File/Export to HTML (you can't do it inthe MAC version).
Add several rows into your html page.
You should also copy all engine files
into "deluxe-menu.files/" folder. You should place this folder in thesame folder with your index. html page.
If you want to install several menus on the one page you should writethe following code once
And then call your data files several times.
A: You can define functions after menuItems, before you call dm_init();function.
var menuItems = [
