Recent Questions Tree Menu User Instructions

Q: Hi, just a quick question, is it possible to change which tab is displayed when the page is first rendered.

For instance, if you have 4 tabs, going right to left, can you load the css menu tabs with the second tab being displayed first?


A: See, if you use Tab Mode
  var tabMode = 1;

  var bselectedItem = 0; //main items
  var bselectedSmItem = -1; //submenus

If you use
  var tabMode = 0;
  var bselectedItem = 0;

See, the ID of the item starts with 0.

So, if you use TabMode (  var tabMode=1;):

  var bselectedItem = 4;

["-", ] - separator, ID = 0
["Mac Tab 1", "content1"], ID = 1
["Subitem1","testlink.html",] ID = 2
["Subitem2","testlink.html",] ID = 3
["Mac Tab 2", "content2"], ID = 4 // selected tab
["Subitem1","testlink.html",] ID = 5
["Subitem2","testlink.html",] ID = 6
["Mac Tab 3", "content3"], ID = 7
["Subitem1","testlink.html",] ID = 8
["Subitem2","testlink.html",] ID = 9
["Mac Tab 4", "content4"], ID = 10
["Subitem1","testlink.html",] ID = 11
["Subitem2","testlink.html",] ID = 12

If you use tabs (  var tabMode=0;):

  var bselectedItem = 2;

["-", ] - separator, ID = 0
["Mac Tab 1", "content1"], ID = 1
["Mac Tab 2", "content2"], ID = 2 // selected tab
["Mac Tab 3", "content3"], ID = 3
["Mac Tab 4", "content4"], ID = 4


Q: Shouldn’t the dhtml expand menu know what page you are on and expand accordingly?
Or would you need to ‘hard code’ each page to be expanded basedon that page?

A: You should set the following parameter
  var ttoggleMode=1;

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 function
function dtreet_ext_expandItem (itemID, expand)

Try that.

Q: The dhtml floating menu does not align to the top of the column and it migrates as one scrolls up or down the page. I would like it to stay in one place.

A: 1) Add valign="top"> parameter for the TD tag with the menu:
<td valign="top">
<script type="text/javascript" src="welcome_files/frenchdata.js"></script>

2) Open your frenchdata.js file in any text editor (or Deluxe Tuner) and change:
  var absolutePos=0;
  var posX="20px";
  var posY="120px";
to
  var absolutePos=0;
  var posX="0px";
  var posY="0px";

3) To turn off the floating feature you should set the following parameter in yourfrenchdata.js file:
  var floatable=0;


Q: I have been using JavaScript Tree Menu quite a bit, but am now running into a problem on a site I developed. When I add a submenu, it appears separated by about 100 pixels down. In this case I left it on the Menu Item “Why Maumelle” for you to look at.

Can you help me out?


A: See, the problem is that the script can't get css properties of the object if they are described in separate .css block (or file).
In other words, you can't get the value of "position" attribute of the object if the object doesn't have this property within inline style(style="position:relative"). To get the value you should move .css style into style="" attribute.

Please, try to add your
css file -> inline css, for example:

For example, you should add style="position:relative;"

to the

<DIV class=MainBody>
<DIV class=Banner></DIV>
<DIV class=Menu>

So, you'll have:

<DIV class=MainBody style="position:relative;">
<DIV class=Banner></DIV>
<DIV class=Menu style="position:relative;">

Now we have only such solution for this problem.
We'll try to fix this problem in the future versions.
