View Full Version : bullet list accordion menu: all collapsed

09-24-2008, 07:44 AM
1) Script Title: bullet list accordion menu

2) Script URL (on DD): http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex17/ddaccordionmenu-bullet.htm

3) Describe problem: At the bottom of this page there is also a Bullet List Accordion Menu with nested levels

But when I copy and paste all the necessairy scripts and preview it in my browser the first header is NOT collapsed but open.

I have been looking around several hours now but can not find where it goes wrong. :confused:

My goal is to get all the menu-buttons closed.

Find this part in the script:

ddaccordion.init({ //top level headers initialization
headerclass: "expandable", //Shared CSS class name of headers group that are expandable
contentclass: "categoryitems", //Shared CSS class name of contents group
revealtype: "click", //Reveal content when user clicks or onmouseover the header? Valid value: "click" or "mouseover
collapseprev: true, //Collapse previous content (so only one open at any time)? true/false
defaultexpanded: [], //index of content(s) open by default [index1, index2, etc]. [] denotes no content
onemustopen: false, //Specify whether at least one header should be open always (so never all headers closed)
animatedefault: false, //Should contents open by default be animated into view?
persiststate: true, //persist state of opened contents within browser session?
toggleclass: ["", "openheader"], //Two CSS classes to be applied to the header when it's collapsed and expanded, respectively ["class1", "class2"]
togglehtml: ["prefix", "", ""], //Additional HTML added to the header when it's collapsed and expanded, respectively ["position", "html1", "html2"] (see docs)
animatespeed: "normal", //speed of animation: "fast", "normal", or "slow"
oninit:function(headers, expandedindices){ //custom code to run when headers have initalized
//do nothing
onopenclose:function(header, index, state, isuseractivated){ //custom code to run whenever a header is opened or closed
//do nothing

...check if the highlighted has value (probably 0 at your end).

Empty that part if you don't want to see a default expanded menu.

I assumed that I already did wat you just wrote, but I must have done something wrong because now IT WORKS, alle headers are, when opening the page closed.
Thank you very much!!

Do you also happen to know which change I have to make, when visiting a subpage, to keep that particular header open?
