Guys,

I am using smart navigation in an Asp.net page to nice effect. However I now need to add a javascript menu to the page.  There is a problem though. The menu has been implemented using a couple of .js files and I am calling the main function inside a <td> tag.  The problem is that everytime a control with autopostback is used the menu disappears.  I was thinking of possibly calling the function on the page onload event but dont know how to target the output to the necessary table cell.

Does this make any sense? Any advise, suggestion desperately required.

Eagery,

Joe.

has the td another content or is just waiting to be filled with the menu?
if it's empty:

//supposing you got the HTML code for the menu stored in variable strMenu

document.getElementById('myCell').innerHTML = strMenu;

if not:

var newSpan = document.createElement("span");
newSpan.innerHTML = strMenu;
document.getElementById('myCell').appendChild(newSpan);
