1) Script Title: Accordion Menu script (v1.7.1)

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

3) Describe problem: Hi all this isnt a problem as such, i was just wondering if anyone knew a way to give the header of the opened sub menu a background image.

You can see what i mean on this site: http://www.ipcamerasupply.com/

simply click on a link on the left menu on above site.

i know its a different kind of menu, it is just an example to try to explain what i would like...

any advice welcome

Well, the script does let you apply a CSS class to each header depending on whether it's expanded or collapsed inside the config code:

//Initialize first demo:
headerclass: "mypets", //Shared CSS class name of headers group
contentclass: "thepet", //Shared CSS class name of contents group
revealtype: "mouseover", //Reveal content when user clicks or onmouseover the header? Valid value: "click", "clickgo", or "mouseover"
mouseoverdelay: 200, //if revealtype="mouseover", set delay in milliseconds before header expands onMouseover
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: ["", "openpet"], //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: integer in milliseconds (ie: 200), or keywords "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

You should be able to modify the CSS of the expanded header class to show a background image. If that's not enough, there is also the onopenclose (http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex17/ddaccordion_suppliment2.htm) event handler that affords you even more flexibility.
