Tree Menu > clicksubimage question

Poster: ScottN
Dated: Tuesday July 19 2005 - 14:33:28 BST

In my tree menu, the clicksubimage displays on every menu item that I click. This is ordinary functionality, but it seems strange using the familiar document tree metaphor, where plus and minus signs are used to indicate the existence of subfolders. In the example, a minus sign shows up on click, whether or not a subfolder has opened.

Is there a way to have clicksubimages show up only if a submenu exists, other than by taking clicksubimage="x"; out of the style and adding it to each menu item that shows a menu?

(Note-this issue can be observed in the tree menu sample. Clicking on an item without a plus sign will make a minus sign appear.)

Hi Scott,

The only thing you might try is creating a 'blank' gif that is the same size as the subimages, and then putting clicksubimage=blank.gif; in the aI string of items that don't have any submenu. I'm still experimenting, but sometimes I get so 'involved' I forget where I am and what I've done to a particular point in time :oops:

Thanks Ruth,
I've decided it's not too much trouble to just specify the clicksubimage when needed. It will only be a couple of times. Stay tuned for more tree-related questions. :)
