Initial Email Subject:  AllWebMenu, Hide menu item or group from javascript
Support Case Month: July 2013

I assume I am able to hide a menu item or menu group via external javascript function so I can display just the items/groups based on the web page.  Can you send me an example of how to do that?
Thank you.
Mike

Hello Mike,

First, thank you for your interest in our Likno products.

I believe that the Server-Side Menus API is what you are looking for:

Also click the "Example" link:

Thank you.
I don't have a need at the moment to build the menu dynamically.  I want to build a complete static menu but then hide parts of it depending on the page the user is on.  My hope is that there is a javascript call to hide an item or group by ID?

Hello Mike,

Another way to achieve what you want is to use the "UL/LI" population method (see below). In that case, you can hide/show any UL/LI items (menu submenus and items in other words) you wish. I believe this is the way to go:

UL LI menu structure code

Is there a way when you have 5 layers, to open a document in new window to remain on last layer opened instead of going all the way back to the main menu?

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Hello,
I am afraid that I do not understand your question. Can you please explain in more detail?
What do you mean by "layers" and "new window" are you talking about a modal window (within the page) or a new browser window?
Do you have an example to show me?

Hi,
I just sent a message to you but I missed a step and tried to recall it without success so please so please use this one.
If  I opened Distillation Checklists and closed it again, I want the rest of the menu to stay up [Training/Area Training/Distillation] so I can go directly to Distillation Questions without having to start at Training again.  Is there away to do that. Thanks, Joyce

Dear Joyce,
If I understand correctly you want the menu to stay open showing the current page.
This can be achieved by selecting the “Show Item or Group on Appear” property:

show item or group on appear menu properties

Thanks for your help but  we were able to make it work by adjusting the actual link.  All is good.

Through the Visible When feature you can specify the menu to show or not, based on rules that you set.

This is useful when you want your menu to appear (or not appear) in special cases.

Example:

You have 2 separate menu projects, one in English language (menu-en.js) and one in German language (menu-de.js), and your website is based on a CMS through which you link both menus to all pages.

You want the English menu to show on the English pages of the website (eg: http://www.mysite/en/page1.html) while the German one on the respective German pages (eg: http://www.mysite/de/page1.html).

This is how you can do this:

On the English menu project (menu-en.js) you set the following condition:

Menu Visible When English

 

On the German menu project (menu-de.js) you set the following condition:

Menu Visible When German

In that way only one of the two linked menus appear on the web page, depending on the page's language implied by the URL.

Note that you can also use regular expressions in the matching string.
