View Full Version : Help with "Accordion Content script (v1.5.1)"

1) Script Title:
Accordion Content script (v1.5.1)
2) Script URL (on DD):
3) Describe problem:
I gave each main-element an id, like this:
<h3 class="menu_main" id="menu_news">&nbsp;</h3>
so that I can give it a background-image, that is different on each element.
But now I want to change this background-image (means the id to something like menu_news_open) when it is expanded... But I have no real clue how to do this, and what I need to change in the js-file...
Anyone here who can help me?

Well, the script does let you swap between two classes (not ids) for the headers, depending on whether they are expanded or contracted:

//Initialize first demo:
headerclass: "mypets", //Shared CSS class name of headers group
contentclass: "thepet", //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: [0], //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: ["closeclass", "openclass"], //Two CSS classes to be applied to the header when it's collapsed and expanded, respectively ["class1", "class2"]
togglehtml: ["none", "", ""], //Additional HTML added to the header when it's collapsed and expanded, respectively ["position", "html1", "html2"] (see docs)
animatespeed: "fast", //speed of animation: "fast", "normal", or "slow"
oninit:function(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

Now, since you're giving each header a unique ID, within your CSS, you should also be able to specify a different background image pair for each header, by associating each ID with the two CSS classes specified above. Something like:

<style type="text/css">

background: url("a1.gif")

background: url("a2.gif")

background: url("b1.gif")

background: url("b2.gif")
