Control bg on open item
DWice - 12/1/2006 at 10:38 AM

menu items:

Item 1 (has url, no children)
Item 2 (has url, no children)
Item 3 (no url, has children)
Item 3.1 (has url)
Item 3.2 (has url)
Item 3.3 (has url)

Item 3 is set to be open on menu build.

I want to be able to show a bg color on Item 3 when users navigate 3.1, 3.2, etc, but to disappear when users navigate to Item 1 or 2. The state of Item 3 appears to open, not open & selected, which makes sense since it has not been clicked.

Hope this makes sense.

you can modify the tree's behavior in the handler of the open event. In the handler call .select() method and then return true to proceed to default onItemOpen handler.

I created the following function and tied it to the onItemOpen event.

function test(o_item){
var a_parent = o_item.o_parent;
if(a_parent.n_id == 5) {;
return true;

It did nothing, even if I added alerts to it. Using the example below, I was clicking on 3.1, 3.2, figured since these are leaf items, they don't have an open event. I moved my function to the onItemSelect, and it then appeared to run (alerts showed), but the did not happen.
I am expecting that .select() will select the item as if I clicked on it. Is this correct?

When I click on it manually with my mouse, the background shows. I know the id (5) is correct.

Thanks for any suggestions.

submit a support ticket attaching your files in the zip archive. We'll take a look. The problem may have something to do with multiple selections option.
