Recent Questions Tree Save StateQ:
I have tried various different ways,I cannot get a separator image I have specified in the Separators section to display for the navigation-bar-menu. I have verified that the image exists, but still nothing. A: To add a separator you should
var separatorImage=""; //for subitems (top items in vertical menu)
var separatorVImage="separator.gif"; //for the top items (subitems items in vertical menu)
You can create separators using menuItems (you can do it in Deluxe
Tuner, use "Add separator" button), for example:
["||All Images","gallery_all.html", , , , "_self", , , , ],
["||Pricing & Ordering Info","gallery_pricing.html", , , ,"_self", , , , ],
Can you provide an example of how to dynamically change the menu items at runtime for the dropdown menus?
2)Generate your menu items dynamically from database.
Unfortunately we don't have working example with ASP.
You may generate a menu from a database or XML using any server-side script, e.g., PHP, ASP, VB, etc.
you should move parameters of a menu from a .js file into an html-page, e.g.:
<!-- (c) 2008, 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:
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.
It's simply not saving the state. Clicking the items on the menu is inconsistent. Sometimes it saves sometimes not.
It seems to be a lot worse in this area. A: See, Tree Menu saves it's state using cookies.
But it can't re-save the same cookie file from different folders.
