Positioning Drop Down menu's Absolutely. Coolmenu

Hi i'm using coolmenu 4 from dhtmlcentral.com. I'm trying to position the menu on the page somewhere. ABSOLUTELY on the screen in a certain position.

EX: if i want to position it top left.. top: 0 left: 0
etc.. etc...

For some reason it always stays in the same postion that the example was given.

So for your basic example you have to change this settings:

//Menu properties  
oCMenu.fromLeft=20       // this is your X offset
oCMenu.fromTop=100    // this is your Y offset
oCMenu.menuPlacement="left"  // <<this is important

Also change this statement:

Good luck,

Awesome thanks a lot Zvonko.  

One last thing i'm curious about is for example.

Lets say i have the menu all the way to the right of the screen. right:0  And the submenus come out further. What would i really want to do in a situation like this. I've designed the page for 760x480. Should i just move the pull downs over more, or make the last submenu smaller in width. And how would i do that for the specific submenu.

Thanks again,

First of all: there is NO such option as right:0
That wath you are asking is demostrated in the example in my first link.
There you can see how even the creater of CoolMenus has problems when it comes to move the menu in sime right position and hold it there when browser resizes!
