Delete everything from menuitem array

I know that the ability to remove items from a menu dynamically after the menu is loaded is on the feature request list, and that the hide a menu item will not work for me.

I don't suppose anyone knows which array I could nuke (length=0?) to remove all of the items from a menu? I could then add items back in using the insertitem dynamically as I need them. I was trying to modify the insertitems script, but quickly found that I was over my head. Basically, I'd love a similar script that would allow me to call menuname.nuke() and it would remove all items from that particular menu array. I could then use the excellent insertitem to repopulate it. (Never would it remain empty).

Any ideas?

Here is a beta of a function that will remove a menu item from an already built menu:

I'm now working on the insertItem funciton - Could have sworn I'd already written this but cannot seemto find a reference to it anywhere. Please let me know where it is if you can find it.


function mm_deleteItem(_mN, _iN)

Syntax is mm_deleteItem('MENUNAME', ITEMNUMBER)

ie, mm_deleteItem('Main Menu', 3) will delete the third item in the main menu

(showing my ignorance here)

How does one use this code to remove items? Do I put it in a new page? If I have to ask, I probably shouldn't be thinking about using it :P


Thanks so much, but...

I really appreciate you sharing the remove script and I have several areas I can immediately use it!

However, I was wondering if there was an easy way to accomplish my original task of erasing all of the items from a particular menu. Or, alternately I could use the remove script your provided if there was a way to query how many items there were in a particular menu (the length of the appropriate array?)

Thanks for your help!
