    Does your javascript dhtml menus allows to keep the pressed menu-item hightlighed?

Return to Recent Questions


Q: I really like your menu but I have a couple of questions:

- When opening a javascript dhtml menus, is there an option for keeping the menu-item that has been pressed hightlighed (so that the user can see what he/she pressed). Is is possible to create this javascript dhtml menus such that it is dynamic and each item is text-based (and not based on two pictures for each menu-entry: hightlighted and not)? The problem that I is stuck at, is how organise this speciel "frame" around each menu-element.
Please notice that the javascript dhtml menus items might not have any submenu.


A: The javascript dhtml menus has only two states normal and mouseover.

Try to do the following things:

- delete var pressedItem=1; parameter from your data file
- set correct parameter on each page before you call data file, for example:

<noscript><a href="http://dhtml-menu.com">javascript dhtml menus by DHTML-Menu.com</a></noscript>
<script type="text/javascript">var dmWorkPath = "menudir/";</script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="menudir/dmenu.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">var pressedItem=3;</script>
...
<script type="text/javascript" src="menudir/data.js"></script>

You can also set a pressed item using Javascript API:

function dm_ext_setPressedItem (menuInd, submenuInd, itemInd, recursion)

Sets a current pressed item.
menuInd - index of a menu on a page, >= 0.
submenuInd - index of a submenu, >= 0.
itemInd - index of an item, >=0.
recursion = true/false - highlight parent items.

But notice, to use dm_ext_setPressedItem() you should know ID of selected item and subitem.
You can't get this ID after you reload your page. That is why you should write your own code on PHP.
