Hiermenus Go Forth, VI:
Version 4 - The Page-Specific Parameters (cont'd)



HM_PG_StatusDisplayBuild

Description
Causes a message to be displayed in the browser status bar every time a menu element is created and upon completion of menu creation.


Status Bar display during menu creation
(HM_PG_StatusDisplayBuild = true)


Status Bar display after menu creation
(HM_PG_StatusDisplayBuild = true)


Status Bar display during and after menu creation
(HM_PG_StatusDisplayBuild = false)

HM_PG_StatusDisplayBuild overrides site-wide global settings declared in the external script.

Value
Boolean.
May be specified as:
  • true Boolean (true / false)
  • integer Boolean (1 / 0)
  • string
  • string JS expression to be evaluated

Example Values
true Boolean: true
    A message is displayed in the browser status bar during and upon menu creation completion.

true Boolean: false
    No message is displayed in the browser status bar during and upon menu creation completion.

integer Boolean: 1
    A message is displayed in the browser status bar during and upon menu creation completion.

integer Boolean: 0
    No message is displayed in the browser status bar during and upon menu creation completion.

string: "true"
    A message is displayed in the browser status bar during and upon menu creation completion.

string: "false"
    No message is displayed in the browser status bar during and upon menu creation completion.

JS expression: "getStatusDisplayBuild()"
    A custom function that you have created will be called. The return value of this function will be the HM_PG_StatusDisplayBuild parameter, and all menu trees in the page will comply.

JS expression: "(isMac) ? false : true)"
    The complete JS code is included in the parameter declaration. In the above example, HM_PG_StatusDisplayBuild will be false if a Macintosh is being used and true for all other platforms.

Default
If this parameter is omitted, the relevant Global Parameter value set in the external script is used.

Differences from Version 3 equivalent
There is no Version 3 equivalent. Authors could not add control the status bar display without editing the external HM script.

Next, HM_PG_StatusDisplayLink.
