Submenu colors stick

I just purchased a license, as I was very impressed with the features provided.

I'm having a problem with colors, though. It seems as though any menu items that use the showmenu function are displayed in the wrong color.

my style code is as follows:
with(menuStyle=new mm_style()){
...etc, etc, etc...

The menu's are set to this style, and individual items appear correctly (blue background and white text, onMouseOver is white background and blue text), but the "header" items so to say (ie, submenu links) is white background and white text by default, but the onMouseOver is correct (white background and white text)

I'm using RC 14, I hope this makes sense. I cannot provide a URL because this is being used on a corporate intranet.

I've found a few things out while playing with this...

The problem only occurs when using a subimage... when commented out, everything functions as intended.

When using the subimage, and while screenposition is center, the default background color for menu items is being set to the color specified in my stylesheet for the page, particularly background-color under my table definition.

Why is this? Of course the menu is in place over a table, the entire page is encapsulated by a table, but shouldn't the value of offbgcolor override this? The font color from the stylesheet doesn't seem to have any effect and the menu acts as intended in that case.

Is what I'm saying making sense? I haven't had any coffee, so it may appear as a ramble ;)

Can I get a response from someone, anyone, regarding this? It's lonely talking to myself...

Take a look at my www link, the top menu is right which is also other than left, let me know if you see the same, I suspect you might.


Also what browser do you have?

No, I do not see the same.

Is the Milonic team aware of this issue? It can be reproduced.

would you like to give me the files you're using (with sensitive info removed) and i'll host them for you for a while? i'm using subimages and have had no problems, but i'm not an expert on this menu, either.

It would help to see something, is it opacity?
You might want to remove opacity.

Please try and get your page posted somewhere. The code snip you gave is no help.

Also, RC16 is now current.

Or post your entire menu_data file. That would help us alot more than 6 lines from one of your styles.

As of this message at least the second version of RC17 is up there. Keep up, and give us more than just a single crumb...
