View Full Version : Dynamic FX-Slide in Menu

02-21-2007, 03:55 PM

Does anyone knows how to use the ssmItens.js script to load pages in a div instead of new page?

I'm using server side include to insert the two js files from this slide menu into my main page and that's work fine. But afterwards, I can't call any function from my main page in order to load the href inside a div, and keep getting null or unexistense object errors when trying to reiffer to any element on my main page.
Even a simple function like test(){alert("test")} can't be called within the menu...

// ssmItems[...]=[name, link, target, colspan, endrow?] - leave 'link' and 'target' blank to make a header
ssmItems[0]=["Test"] //create header
ssmItems[1]=["Test", "javascript:test();", ""]

Remember, you are firing a link so, you need to use the void() convention:

ssmItems[1]=["Dynamic Drive", "javascript:void(test())", ""]

This may cause problems in some IE versions though but, you won't know until you try. Worked fine here in IE 7.

Within the page, I use this function to load pages on my DIV tag:

The ajaxpage code:

var bustcachevar=1
var loadedobjects=""
var rootdomain="http://"+window.location.hostname
var bustcacheparameter=""

function ajaxpage(url, containerid){
var page_request = false
if (window.XMLHttpRequest) // if Mozilla, Safari etc
page_request = new XMLHttpRequest()
else if (window.ActiveXObject){ // if IE
try {
page_request = new ActiveXObject("Msxml2.XMLHTTP")
catch (e){
page_request = new ActiveXObject("Microsoft.XMLHTTP")
catch (e){}
return false
loadpage(page_request, containerid)
if (bustcachevar) //if bust caching of external page
bustcacheparameter=(url.indexOf("?")!=-1)? "&"+new Date().getTime() : "?"+new Date().getTime()
page_request.open('GET', url+bustcacheparameter, true)

function loadpage(page_request, containerid){
if (page_request.readyState == 4 && (page_request.status==200 || window.location.href.indexOf("http")==-1))

function loadobjs(){
if (!document.getElementById)
for (i=0; i<arguments.length; i++){
var file=arguments[i]
var fileref=""
if (loadedobjects.indexOf(file)==-1){ //Check to see if this object has not already been added to page before proceeding
if (file.indexOf(".js")!=-1){ //If object is a js file
fileref.setAttribute("src", file);
else if (file.indexOf(".css")!=-1){ //If object is a css file
fileref.setAttribute("rel", "stylesheet");
fileref.setAttribute("type", "text/css");
fileref.setAttribute("href", file);
if (fileref!=""){
loadedobjects+=file+" " //Remember this object as being already added to page

But using the slide menu, somehow I lost contact with this dunction and whatever other object on my main page...

Doing more tests, I realize I could reach the test function only when I place it on main page and not on loaded page or neither on my include page (slide menu page)...

You may (should actually) be able to have it as an external .js file though.
