Support Case Month: June 2012

Hi,

I'm evaluating the trial version of your Drop down menu trees program and when I create a new project and preview it, the selected leaves show as being selected in the preview, which is what I want.  However as soon as I begin customizing it by adding putting a value in the link field under the mouse click column that leaf no longer will show as being selected.  Am I missing something?  I'm ready to purchase a license for this however I do need to know I can have the currently selected page (leaf) showing as being selected.

Thanks,

John

Dear John,

I am afraid that there is currently no automatic way to re-select the “current” item in the tree. You can do this using the API if you want, but this would mean adding a given code in every page to select the desired item.

Is this something you consider critical for the application?

My customers like this option Kostas, I often use a similar option in AllWebMenus  to indicate the active page.  I'm looking to upgrade an older tree application in one of my web sites (http://barnquilts.com) which does indicate the active page in the tree.

If you could tell me what it would involve to use the API and additional code that might work for me.  I'd really like to use your tree program, I love using the other Likno products I'm licensed to use.

Dear John,

Using the Tree API you can call the tree (using its “compiled name”) and then toggle and select the items you want.

For example if you add the following code to your page (right after the Linking Code):

<script type="text/javascript">

    setTimeout(function () {

        tree.toggleBranch("tree_1");

        tree.selectBranch("tree_1_0");

    }, 500);

</script>

This will unfold the second tree item (assuming it has a subtree) and select the first item of its subtree. Note that the numbering starts from 0.

menu structure

The above will work in a default new project.

If you change the compile name of your tree to “mytree”:

menu tree compile name

Then the above code should be:

<script type="text/javascript">

    setTimeout(function () {

        mytree.toggleBranch("mytree_1");

        mytree.selectBranch("mytree_1_0");

    }, 500);

</script>

Note that the 500ms delay is there to make sure that the tree had time to load before you try unfolding and highlighting it.

Let me know if you need more help on this.

Kostas

Dear sir,

I have a small question which I thought I had found the solution for but seems not to work.

My client would like that his choice of menu stays highlighted until he clicks on another menu.  It is only a simple one level menu, something like 5 buttons on a row (horizontally).  Now when we hover above a button it alters from gray background to red, but once clicked it turns grey again instead of remaining red.  So the user can see his last chosen menu.  Is this possible for I tried something on group level but that did not seem to work.

Thanks,
Pascal

Dear Pascal,

What you need is to enable the automatic highlight feature, which keeps the “current” item on its clicked state by matching the browser URL with the item’s link.

Hello
I'm using Likno-Tabs.
When I start my page with several tabs, always the first tab is open. If I want to start the page with the third tab out of javascript. What must I do?
With our best regards

Hello,

You can define within the application which tab you want to be opened. You can also use JavaScript Code or even a parameter in the page URL to define this.

Please read the detailed help regarding this feature:

Hello! We have released a new version of Likno Web Scroller (jQuery Slider) Builder: Version 1.0 build #122.

Check out What's New

- Created the Microsoft Expression Web 4 Add-in (EW4), so that users of Expression Web 4 can link and position their scrollers inside their pages through this Add-in.

- Added Example 09 (Amazon mockup): Similar scroller to the live scroller used on Amazon (as of October 2, 2012). Use of Navigation Arrows. Use of a "Page Numbers" only Navigation Bar ("Custom"). Use of rounded corners on "Container Area CSS".

HTML jQuery slider scroller Amazon mockup example

- Added the "None" option at the "Initially Selected Item" property, so that the scroller appears with no item in "selected" state.

- Changed the "Initially Selected Item" of "Example 06" to "Random", so that the scroller (slider) shows a random content when it initially appears.

- Improved the "fade" sub-effects to be more visible.

- Fixed a Navigation Bar issue where an extra space was added after the last page number.

- Fixed an issue regarding the Width option "Auto (variable): Different for each item".

- Fixed an issue with loading multiple scroller projects to a page.

- Fixed an issue with the combination of "Automatic Play (slideshow)" & "Step by Item" & "Random".

- Added the ability to insert and use custom values inside the page before the "Linking Code" section in order to override several internal project options.

- Fixed a positioning issue for "Floating" scrollers that used the "Relative to Element" or "Relative to Image" positioning option.

- Fixed an issue with the positioning of Navigation Arrows when they were "Embedded" inside a vertical scroller (jQuery slider).

- Fixed a Safari-related issue where the item separators appeared wider.

- Fixed an issue with the fonts in the Top/Bottom/Left/Right areas.
