hmenu

Conditional menu based on menu page-id

Following code gives a nice way to have a custom content element as sub-menu item for each main menu item

lib.customMenu = HMENU
lib.customMenu {
 1 = TMENU
 1  {
        wrap = |
        NO.allWrap = | 
        NO.stdWrap.htmlSpecialChars = 1
        NO.after.cObject = COA
        NO.after.cObject {           
            20 = CASE
            20 {
               key.field = uid
               default = RECORDS
               default.tables = tt_content
               default.conf.tt_content < tt_content
               default.conf.tt_content.stdWrap.innerWrap >               
               
               14 < .default               
               14.source = {$submenu_element_14}
               
               15 < .default               
               15.source = {$submenu_element_15}
               
               16 < .default               
               16.source = {$submenu_element_16}
               
               17 < .default               
               17.source = {$submenu_element_17}
               
            }            
            
        }
        ACT = 1
        ACT.after.cObject < .NO.after.cObject
        ACT.allWrap = |
        ACT.ATagParams = class="act"
        ACT.stdWrap.htmlSpecialChars = 1

        CUR < .ACT
        CUR.ATagParams = class="cur"
    }
}

This code cannot be used as it is, you will need to make sure the DHTML/JavaScript code for the sub menu items are configured accordingly.

Changing Menu based on selected Templavoila TemplateObject using TypoScript

TypoScript has so much features that it is indeed impossible to document each and every feature hidden with it. As we start adding extensions the feature list would increase as well.

Consider you have selected a specific Templavoila Template and you wish to have a different type of menu based on the selected template.
In such case it would be easy to change menu styles if the entire menu is enclosed in a separate CSS class.

I have given an example where I am checking for template IDs 10 , 11. If this template is used for current page I am changing it’s class.

lib.mymenu = HMENU
lib.mymenu {
entryLevel = 1
stdWrap.ifEmpty.wrap = &nbsp;

1 = TMENU
1 {
wrap = <ul>|</ul>
NO.wrapItemAndSub = |</li>
NO.allWrap = <li>|
NO.allWrap {
override = <li class=”alternate_menu”>|
override.if.value = 10,11
override.if.isInList.field = tx_templavoila_to
}
# same way we can configure ACT and CUR as well
ACT = 1
CUR = 1

}

# For second level I would like to change the class of the A Tag
2 < .1
2.wrap = <ul>|</ul>
2.CUR.ATagParams = id=”cur_menu”
2.ACT.ATagParams.cObject = TEXT
2.ACT.ATagParams.cObject {
override = class=”cur_menu_a”
override.if.value = 10,11
override.if.isInList.field = tx_templavoila_to
}
3 < .2

#let us generate the 3rd level only if the page uses the Template of our choice.
3.if {
value = 10,11
isInList.field = tx_templavoila_to
}

}

Not all templates may have a template ID specified, in such case we need to use the sliding feature.
When we use the sliding feature the template id of parent ID is used.
We can do this Like:

isInList.data = levelfield:-1, tx_templavoila_to, slide

Note:
Usually Templates are stored in the Storage Folder, and you can view the Template IDs of Templavoila Template Objects from the list view!

3 Column Typoscript Graphical Menu

The illustraion shows how to generate a 3 Graphical Menu using Typoscript.
The script is written such that the image will be taken from the media field of page property. If an image is not specified then an image will be generated using it’s page title / navigation title.

spaImageMenu = COA

spaImageMenu {
   1 >
   1 = GMENU
   1.NO {
      altImgResource.import = uploads/pics/
      altImgResource.import.field = media
      altImgResource.import.listNum = 0

      XY = 110,57
      backColor = white
      10 = TEXT
      10.text.field = nav_title // title
      10.offset = 20,30
      allWrap = |*|<tr><td>|</td>||<td>|</td>||<td>|</td></tr>|*|

    }

    wrap = <table width="100%" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="mymenu_class">|</table>
}
