onopen and onclose Menu Properties

Hi All,

I think it would be useful to have menu properties, say onopen and onclose, that you could use to fire a function when a menu opens or closes respectively. Currenly, the onfunction and offfunction menu item properties are it. Don't get me wrong... those are great and can certainly substitute for onopen and onclose menu properties in some circumstances. But the onfunction and offfunction are limited to individual items, making it harder to use them to help track/do things based on opening and closing of a whole menu.

Respecfully submitted,

I agree Kevin, you can't have too many events at one's disposal, ya know? I also think an onClick should also be implemented. I can think of a few instances where it may be helpful. And you would not have to rely on putting the javascript: in the url. What do you think? Do you think the url=javascript: is enough?

As you say Dave, can't have too many events ;) ... yes, I agree. Having onclick available might also stifle IE's annoying propensity to de-animate animated gifs.

So what do ya think there Andy? Is it a possibility? At least on the todo list? ;) Us javascript junkies love having as many events to latch on to as possible... :lol:
