Recent Questions Tree Examples Apex 4Q: We are testing you menu in our application. It is being used in cross frame mode. It works very nicely except a couple issues.
The main one is after loading a new page in the sub menus window when I go back to the main menu to select another option but on the initial mouse over it takes several seconds for the menu to come up. Once the delay of loading the initial submenu is over it loads all others very quickly until a new page is loaded again. Is there a way to optimize the menu to reduce this load time? I have already set dm_writeAll=0 but that only increased the speed of the initial display of the main menu.
And the other question is does the dmObjectsCheck option work in cross frame mode? I have it set =1 and the submenus still underneath objects (such as select list) which have a higher z order.
A: Try to do the following:
move all <script> calls into <head>, but delete dm_initFrame()function from data .js file -- move them instead of files calls, i.e.:
<div><script>dm_initFrame("frmSet", 1, 2, 1); </script></div>
It this case data will be loaded when <head> will load, but after thatmenus must be shown quickly.
Let me know about results.
Q: Should it possible to make a meta tag (or script) so the menu don't put anything on the local computer?
A: If you don't want the page will be cached, try to use standard htmltags, for example:
<META http-equiv=Cache-Control content="no-cache, must-revalidate">
<META http-equiv=Pragma content=no-cache>
See more in a HTML manual.
Q: As a part-time webdeveloper I have gotten very interested in your product. I really appreciate a number of things
- it's very flexible
- it's very easy to work with
- examples nicely show the capabilities
But I have a couple of questions:
- When opening a menu, there is an option for keeping the menu-item that has been pressed hightlighed (so that the user can see what he/she pressed). Is it possible, programmatically, to decide when this highlighting should be removed? The scenario is that, when a menu-item is clicked the used might browse for a couple of pages within the context defined by the menu-item, but when the user leaves, the menu-item should no longer be highlighted. I will (programmatically) decide the context, but is it possible for me to interact with the menu, and for example decide explicitly which menu should be highlighted?
- Our design department would like the menu containing the elements: "Skovdrift, Juletreer, Skovrejsning, etc". Please notice that "Brende" is supposed to show a menu item that is hightlighted. Is is possible to create this menu such that it is dynamic and each item is text-based (and not based on two pictures for each menu-entry: hightlighted and not)? I've been wondering how to solve this problem, but I cannot figure out a solution. The problem that I is stuck at, is how organise this speciel "frame" around each menu-element. Something that be partly accomplished using "arrowImageMain", but that does not bring me all the way. Please notice that the menu-items might not have any sub-menu.
A: I suppose that you're saying about
Defines an item that will appear in the highlighted state
(-2 - normal mode, -1 - toggle mode is active, but highlighted item not defined, 0,1,2,3,... - # of pressed item including separators)
This parameter will not approach you.
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.
A copy of a working example together with where to get the data , perhaps on your own web pages, would help.
function dtreet_ext_setPressedItem (menuInd, itemID)
var i = <?php echo $selitem; ?>;
You should define selitem using server side script.
