Recent Questions Tree Menu Tutorial

Q: Hi, I am testing your menu system for my company and would like to know how to keep the menu in the centre of the page like <centre></centre>.
I know how to do it without a floating menu but cannot work out how to do this with it floating.


A: When you use floatable menu you can't use relative menu position.
So, if you use

  var absolutePos = 0;

and to center the menu you use <p> or <div> with the center alignment your menu won't float.
To center your floatable menu you should set absolute coordinates.


Q: Hi, I am looking at your JavaScript Tree Menu package. It looks very nice, but I cannot find any kind of manual for how to use it. There's some online documentation on the Tuner, but (for example) I can't find anything that documents the dm_popup window open options. I find some sample code I can copy that has the call

return dm_popup(0, 1000, event)

1. So, what do these parameters mean?
2. It takes a long time for the menu to go away if you don't click anything. From tracing through the obfuscated javascript with firebug, it looks like the second parameter sets a timeout to make the menu go away. But when I change the "1000" to "1", the menu does not appear to behave any differently.
3. If I want to have more than one of these menus show up on the page, how would I do that?
4. I have it set up to show the popup when you right-click a page element. However, the menu items only appear to fire if you then left-click them. This is confusing to the user: I'd like to have the menu items also fire when you right-click them for consistency. How would I configure this?

These are the kinds of questions I would like to have answers to, but I cannot find any relevant documentation. Do I have lots of tracing through javascript ahead of me? If I have just missed the relevant documentation, please tell me where to find it. I would love to use your product, but if I have to spend all my time tracing javascript it's not a big win for me. Thanks for your assistance.

A: 1) You can find window open options info on our website:
http://deluxe-menu.com/popup-mode-sample.html
Click "Show additional info" button on this page.

2) You should adjust the second parameter in dm_popup() function:dm_popup(0, 500, event);

3) See the first parameter in the dm_popup() function is menuInd, soif you want to create several popup menus you should create severaldata file and call them on your page, for example:
<script type="text/javascript" language="JavaScript1.2" src="menu-top.js"></script> // ID - 0 //standard menu (doesn't use popup feature)
<script type="text/javascript" language="JavaScript1.2" src="source_pop.js"></script> // ID - 1
<script type="text/javascript" language="JavaScript1.2" src="source_pop1.js"></script> // ID - 2
<script type="text/javascript" language="JavaScript1.2" src="source_pop2.js"></script> // ID - 3
<script type="text/javascript" language="JavaScript1.2" src="source_pop3.js"></script> // ID - 4

and so on.

See how you should call dm_popup() functions:

<img src="../../../../fileadmin/img/flag_de.gif" width="50"
onMouseOver="return dm_popup(1, 2000, event);" style="cursor: pointer;">
// 1 - is ID of the second menu
....

<img src="../../../../fileadmin/img/flag_fr.gif" width="50"
onMouseOver="return dm_popup(2, 2000, event);" style="cursor: pointer;">
// 2 - is ID of the third menu
// 3 - is ID of the fourth menu
... and so on.

4) Unfortunately it is not possible now.

Unfortunately we don't have additional documentation yet. But you canfind all need info on our website. Try to use search field on ourwebsite.

You can dynamically generate the menu structure. For example movemenuItems into your phph page (or embed in a Smarty Template) insideSCRIPT tag:

 <script type="text/javascript">
    var menuItems = [
      ["Terminal","index.php?form=TERMINAL&tid={$tid}"],
      ["Kassenschnitte","index.php?form=KS&tid={$tid}"],
      ["Buchungen Debit","index.php?form=DEBIT&tid={$tid}"],
      ["Kredit- / Bonuskarten","index.php?form=KREDIT&tid={$tid}"],
      ["Rucklastschriften","index.php?form=RLAST&tid={$tid}"],
      ["Monatsstatistik","index.php?form=STATISTIK&tid={$tid}"],
      ["RL-H.Rechnung","index.php?form=RLASTABR&tid={$tid}"],
      ["LiveStream","index.php?form=LIVESTREAM&tid={$tid}"],
      ["Reports","index.php?form=REPORTS&tid={$tid}"],
      ["Datenhistorie","index.php?form=HISTORY&tid={$tid}"],
      ["Bankleitzahlen","index.php?form=BLZ&tid={$tid}"],
      ["<br />Ihre Nutzerdaten","index.php?form=NDATEN&tid={$tid}"],
   ["<br />{$NAVI}",""],
  ];
  dm_init();
</script>


Q: Do you have an extremely simple example of modifying a dynamic drop down menus with the JavaScript API? I've played with the example on the site, but I have trouble removing the other menus without breaking it.

I just want to use the API to change the icon on the menu items.

A: You should use the following function:
function dm_ext_changeItem (menuInd, submenuInd, itemInd, iParams)

<script language="javascript" >
dm_ext_changeItem(0, 0, 1, ["", "", "new_icon.gif", "new_icon_o.gif", "",,""]);
</script>
