WhiteSeed,

I'm not sure how to "initialize" the script.  Can you attach a notepad document with that script?

Thanks

here you can download the full source file whit the example:
http://forum.leigeber.com/index.php?app=downloads&module=display&section=download&do=confirm_download&id=7

Open in new window


to initialize use:
var menu=new menu.dd('menu');

Open in new window

where 'menu'  is the name of the object and
menu.init('menu');

Open in new window

where 'menu' the id of the menu unordered list

I'm in a hurry and can not make a more detailed example if you need i will come back in a few hours
