Ghost Submenu (Frames, vertical and right to left)

Hello all!

I posted this problem (wrongly) in Version 5 Forum:

I want to make a simple Frames-Menu:
    2 Frames (left=content, right=menu)
    The menu should show all submenus form right to left in content frame
    i have to use frames, and i dont want to have iframes, etc..

The Code is use is from from the Frames-Demo
The Frames Side Code:
,"PHP", "history.php?tp=php",,,0
,"JSP", "history.php?tp=jsp",,,0
,"JavaScript", "history.php?tp=jscript",,,0

I jsut added "right" for Menu position...
This works fine, all submenu are from right to left...

But i noticed a ghost submenu on the left, when you navigate back from submenu to menu when you cross the frames border quickly. You can try it here:
If you move slowly, the ghost submenu wont be shown, try it often to see what i mean.

My .JS verison is Version 3.5.15.

So can anyone help me with this?
And how to upgrade to version 5? I haven't found any download location for this :?:

Many thanks in advance!


P.S. I added a pic (took me a long time to catch the ghost submenu)

It looks to me like the submenu is appearing at x=0 before moving to the "right" ScreenPosition that you've specified... probably because Menu Left is not et so it uses 0 as the default. Have you tried not specifying a ScreenPosition (the 6th element in the submenu's array), to see if it will try to position itself correctly by default? If that doesn't work, the "Right-to-left" option may be useful. I'd try those first... it seems to me that you ought to be able to get the submenus to position themselves automatically. If none of that works, you might be able to apply a workaround by specifying a negative value in each submenu's Menu Left (3rd) element. For example, set Menu Left to -300. My guess is that the ghost image will then initially appear off the browser screen, 300 pixels to the left, then be repositioned to right justified. If the initial appearance is off screen, the user won't see it, so it's as if it didn't happen.

Hope that helps,
