Inserting object

Open Dreamweaver, open document in which you want to place menu. Navigation menu can be inserted in page through the menu option "Insert -> Solutions4Website -> HTML5 Vertical Menu" or the Insert Bar. After you choose "HTML5 Vertical Menu" you will see a dialog window where you have to define the destination folder. There (in this folder) will be created folder 'menu_files' and inside this folder will be placed files jquery.vertical-menu.js, vertical-menu.css and images. Links to files jquery.vertical-menu.js and vertical-menu.css will be automatically added into tag <head>:

<script type="text/javascript" src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.7.0/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="menu_files/jquery.vertical-menu.min.js"></script> <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="menu_files/vertical-menu.css" />

Take a note that library jQuery is connecting from the Google Libraries API resource. Also in tag <head> will be automatically added script, which is initializing the component:

<script type="text/javascript">
  $(document).ready(function() {
    $("#JQVerticalMenu1").fdVerticalMenu({menuItemSelected:0,
    subMenuDirection:"right",
    subMenuAppearDelay:100,
    subMenuDisappearDelay:100,
    subMenuTransition:"drop",
    subMenuTransitionEasing:"easeOutQuad",
    subMenuTransitionDuration:300,
    subMenuShadowEnabled:false,
    topItemTransitionDuration:500,
    topItemBgColorTop:"#2F86C3",
    topItemBgColorBottom:"#2F86C3",
    topItemBgHighlightTop:"#246B9B",
    topItemBgHighlightBottom:"#2F86C3",
    topItemFontHighlight:"#FFFFFF",
    topItemBgHighlightOpacity:1,
    topItemHighlightShadowEnabled:true,
    topItemBgActiveTop:"#246B9B",
    topItemBgActiveBottom:"#246B9B",
    topItemFontActive:"#FFFFFF",
    topItemBgActiveOpacity:1,
    topItemActiveShadowEnabled:false,
    subItemTransition:"move",

    subItemAnimatedCaption:true,
    subItemBgColorTop:"#F0F0F0",
    subItemBgColorBottom:"#F0F0F0",
    subItemBgHighlightTop:"#7A8D36",
    subItemBgHighlightBottom:"#8DA731",
    subItemFontHighlight:"#FFFFFF",

  });
