This is perfect. But I think to myself, surely I don't need all the .js files from the Menu directory, nor do I need all the .gif files from the Images directory, so I started deleting those files one at a time, until I got to the point where Images contained only the Vista1 folder + the empty.gif file, and the Menu folder contained only dmenu.js. My menu now not working.
I'm guessing that some graphic files need to draw the top-level menu bar are missing. But which ones?
So my question is, what files do I really need? Is this something the documentation describes, and if so where?
I hope I don't have to include the full contents of the Menu and Images folder, as they are quite large.
A: Unfortunately, you should add all need images manually.
We'll try to correct it soon.
You can open your data.js file and see what images you're using in themenu and copy tese images into your folder.
You should also change the following parameter:
There is no need to use all engine files for the menu.
Description of files you can find here:
Q: The first is that for some reason my item separator image will not show. I have tried everything.. and no matter what I do the image will not show. I designed a graphic that is 2 pixels high and is the width of the total menu. The first problem is that the graphic wont show at all.. and I do not know why. Secondly, I am now thinking that I would like to use the separator graphic on all levels of the menu.. but this creates a another issue.. as the width of the submenus varies based on the length of the text displayed. How then can I have a separator image work in the submenus?
A: Try to write you Item Styles so:
var itemStyles = [
See the normal item border color.
You didn't paste separator into your menuItems.
A: See, for example you want to use HelveticaNeue Condensed font.
If there will be no HelveticaNeue Condensed font on the user machinethe font won't be shown correctly.
You can find another font similar to your font and write it through a comma.
You should choose the font among the following fonts:
Times New Roman
These fonts are installed on the most of windows computers.
Or you can create images with text and use it for the top items.
Q: How do I change the background color for the floating drop down menu
A: To change menu colors you should change the following parameters:
You can also use Individual Item Styles to change the color of the specific items:
var menuStyles = [
var itemStyles = [
