A PHP/MySQL HierMenus Generation Interface - (4/4)
A PHP - MySQL Interface for HierMenus 4
Status of development
I will admit that I have not tested the interface for all possible combinations that HierMenus allows. I will, therefore, be glad to receive your comments and feedback to enable me to keep this interface updated and in line with HierMenus.
Expandability and scope
Oh yeah! I mentioned something about dynamic menu generation and the possibility of context sensitive menus. If you have the database support, then it is possible to have additional fields to take care of any context reference and more than one record can have the same array suffix but with different context references. This means that you can have one database with various menu trees each triggered in a different context.
These are just a few examples. I can think of many more uses.
Demo and download
You can see HierMenus with MySQL database and the PHP interface in operation in the PHP Download section of http://www.creativephp.com. I have deliberately used the same array values as in the HierMenus example, but maybe with different parameters. It is operating off a database and there is no HM_Arrays.js file. You can download the PHP interface directly from that demonstration page.
