Using CoolMenus 4, how do I change my menu's position through a JavaScript function?
This is what I'm using and nothing is happening:

function MoveMenu(x,y) {

oCMenu.fromLeft=x;
oCMenu.fromTop=y;

}

Thanks,
Jonathan

The problem is that you will have to re-envoke the menu call: you already have the menu created, so changing the X, Y where it will be created will have no effect.

So, try dynamically changing the coordinates and then re-execute the code that creates the menu.

What we will have to do is to see is if calling the code again creates a second menu or moves the first.

have yuo considered wrapping the menu in a div and repositioning the div?

this function

function changeDivPos(divLeft,divTop){
            document.getElementById('divCoolMenu').style.top=divTop;
            document.getElementById('divCoolMenu').style.left=divLeft;
      }


with this div

<div id="divCoolMenu" style="position:absolute; top:25; left:50; background:00008b; width:800; height:40;">
<script>
oCMenu.construct()            
</script>

called from a button

<input type="button" onClick="changeDivPos(80,250)" value="go">

repositioned the entire menu

i could not reposition the menu bar thats why the div has a background colour
