Expands/collapses a specified item or a submenu.
itemID - ID property of an item. expand - 0 - expand the item, 1 - show the item.
For example place to your HTML code

I have images that I want to use for the top level of the menu. How do I create a menu using images that were created in a different program? I tried to look in the frequently asked questions but IcouldnТt find anything that told me how. Thank you in advance for your help. A: You can use any image for the top items.
You can set
Or, create Individual style
var itemStyles = [
["itemWidth=92px","itemBorderWidth=0","fontStyle=normal 11px Tahoma","fontColor=#FFFFFF,#FFFFFF","itemBackImage=data-vista-03.files/btn_magentablack.gif,data-vista-03.files/btn_magenta.gif"],
The new method of making image-based menus: if item text is empty, icon fields will be used as item images.
["", "index.html", "itemImageNormal.gif", "itemImageOver.gif", "Home Page"]
What we want is, when a user enters our site from the index (home) page then clicks on a link and the sub-page opens, for the dhtml menu tree to be open to the section the user is in and viewing. We also DO NOT want the browser to save the state of the menu, since that is inconsistent with where the user is in the site. Note: we do not use the Menu on the home page, is this a problem?
Per your tech support email, I've added the expand code, which works going from the home page to sub-pages. However, it interferes with navigating to other sub-pages once your in the site. The menu doesn't keep the section open, it closes back up. You mentioned the expand code has to be entered on every page....is that so in this instance and if so, that's a maintenance nightmare - does a better way exist for this type of menu?
Then we activated the "save state" option and the menu stays open on the sub-pages, but the expand option doesn't work.
It's like they cancel each other out and you can only have one or the other.
Can I get these two to work together? What do I need to do? Is it better to use the XP-style menu? A: When user clicks the link, the browser loads a new page and the script re-create the dhtml menu tree.
If you want to open the needed section automatically on load you can use the following:
1. Save the state to cookies
2. Use frames
3. Put the special script on each page of site that will open appropriate section.
