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:
Q: We're interested in the pop up menu (context menu) you offered. Is it possible to generate multiple context menus at the same page?
Is the context menu also 508 compliant, in other words, keyboard accessible?
A: Yes, you can use as many context menus as you want on the same page.
You should call your data files at first
<img src="deluxe-menu.files/logo_w.gif" onClick="return dm_popup(0, 1000, event);" style="cursor: pointer;"> //1st menu
<img src="deluxe-menu.files/logo_w.gif" onClick="return dm_popup(1, 1000, event);" style="cursor: pointer;"> //2nd menu
You can use keyboard in context menus but you have to click (or hover) the image. And only after your subitems appear you can press "Ctrl+F2" and arrow keys to navigate themenu.
But if you have multiple menus on one page and use keystrokes support you can navigate only the first menu.
Q: I am working in a Hispanic area, and need to be able to utilize specialcharacters
in titles in for navigation menus.
However, those are appearing distorted on my website.
A: Actually you can use any letters in the menu.
Please, check that you've set "Tools/Use utf8 encode".
When you save your data file in UTF8 you should use the same encoding on our html page.
So you should write:
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8">
If you don't want to use UTF-8 encode on your page you should turn off
"Tools/Use utf8 encode" property, save your data file and manually
change your letters in any text editor.
Q: Can data be loaded dynamically?
For example, can your dhtml menu source code load the child of a node once the node is clicked on?
A: You can use AJAX like technology.
You may generate a menu from a database or XML using any server-side script, e.g., PHP, ASP, VB, etc.
<!-- (c) 2006, http://deluxe-menu.com -->
// and describe parameters of a menu
var menuItems = [
// here you generate items using server-side scripts (php, asp, vb, etc.)
The example of the menu working with PHP/MYSQL you can find here:
