What we want is, when a user enters our site from the index (home) page then clicks on a link and the sub-page opens, for the dhtml menu tree to be open to the section the user is in and viewing. We also DO NOT want the browser to save the state of the menu, since that is inconsistent with where the user is in the site. Note: we do not use the Menu on the home page, is this a problem?
Per your tech support email, I've added the expand code, which works going from the home page to sub-pages. However, it interferes with navigating to other sub-pages once your in the site. The menu doesn't keep the section open, it closes back up. You mentioned the expand code has to be entered on every page....is that so in this instance and if so, that's a maintenance nightmare - does a better way exist for this type of menu?
Then we activated the "save state" option and the menu stays open on the sub-pages, but the expand option doesn't work.
It's like they cancel each other out and you can only have one or the other.
Can I get these two to work together? What do I need to do? Is it better to use the XP-style menu?
A: When user clicks the link, the browser loads a new page and the script re-create the dhtml menu tree.
If you want to open the needed section automatically on load you can use the following:
1. Save the state to cookies
2. Use frames
3. Put the special script on each page of site that will open appropriate section.
Q: My pop out menus in the vertical navigation bar appear on the left instead of the right.
A: You can try to change the following parameter:
Q: I am trying out your menu and I've made out a little test case in the attached file.
If you run it, you will see that the horizontal drop down menu css scrollsOUTSIDE the container div to the edges of the window. Is there anyway I can make the hhorizontal drop down menu css be within the container div and yet scroll?
And will the solution be cross-browser?
Note that menuDiv needs to have a collapsableDiv style. I am assuming that that is not a problem.
A: Try to set exact width for the submenu:
Q: I was trying to figure something out myself but after a lot of hours I decided I will contact you.
I don’t know why but the align of the text is not moving to the right side (because in Israel we write from right to left)
The sub-menu works great and all the text align to the right but from some reason the title is unmovable.
Please if you know any solution to that problem?
- you can set the following parameter:
var tXPAlign="right"; //align of expand-buttons of submenus titles
- write your top items:
