Recent Questions Sliding TreeviewQ: I want to buy your product today, but have a few questions:
How do I change the font style for java menu templates to 9pt Verdana bold, but leave the sub-menus 9pt Verdana normal? I understand there’s a "fontStyle" variable, but is there an "itemfontStyle"? How do I make the left hand padding greater for the menu? I’m using the XP Style 1 and the far left top menu item is running up against my left hand border. I want to add about 10px of spacing to the left of the menu. How do I make the options in a menu have equal spacing? For instance, if there are 5 items in the menu, how can each have 100% / 5?
A: You can use Individual Item styles to set specific parameters for eachitem or submenu.
var fontStyle=["normal 9pt Verdana","normal 9pt Verdana"]; //for subitems
//style for the top items
var itemStyles = [
["itemHeight=21px","itemBackColor=#F2F3F2,#1665CB","fontStyle='bold 9pt Verdana','bold 9pt Verdana'"],
2., 4. You should specify itemPadding parameter in "px". You shouldadd "px" in your style for subitems:
var menuStyles = [
Notice also that you can set multiple value for itemPadding parameter,for example:
itemPadding=4px 10px 4px 10px
top right bottom left
4. You should set the exact width for the java menu templates:
and set width for the top items using Individual styles:
["itemWidth=100px","itemHeight=21px","itemBackColor=#F2F3F2,#1665CB","fontStyle='bold 9pt Verdana','bold 9pt Verdana'"],
Unfortunately it is not possible to specify item's width in '%' inIndividual styles. The following width parameters won't work.
["itemWidth=20%","itemHeight=21px","itemBackColor=#F2F3F2,#1665CB","fontStyle='bold 9pt Verdana','bold 9pt Verdana'"],
Q: Is there a way to use the smartscrolling function (for a vertical menu) on the MAIN menu instead of only for the submenu's?
A: You can't use scrolling in the main menu. But if you have verylarge menu you can use multilevel menu,
Theoretically we can do scrolling in the main menu, but we think that it will be better touse multilevel menu in that case.
Q: I am rewriting my homepage in CSS but now I have another problem with the DeLuxe menu.
I changed the variables
var posX = 100;
var posY = 100;
var absolutePos = 1;
var topDX = 0;
var topDY = 0;
var DX = -3;
var DY = 0;
var subMenuAlign = "left";
var subMenuVAlign = "top";
Sometimes when I change the variables the submenus are well positioned and then, after enlarging the IE-window, they are not.
What can I do?
A: It is possible that you have some problems with your css styles.
In other words, you can't get the value of "POSITION: absolute" attribute of the object if the object doesn't have this property within inline style (style="POSITION:absolute;"). To get the value you should move .css style into style="" attribute.
Please, try to add your
css file -> inline css, for example:
You should add style="POSITION: absolute;"
Q: I am having some difficulty dynamically adding items to a dhtml sliding menus.
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.
menuInd - index of a menu on a page, >= 0.
parentItemID - ID property of an item.<, >= 0.
itemInd - index of a new item within the menu, >= 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 the
specific place, for example set itemInd=5 if you want to add item
before 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.
