1) Script Title: ddaccordion.js

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

3) Describe problem: I am having a problem in IE8 only where when the accordion menu collapses, the spaces between the menu items disappear. Since v1.9 is suppose to address this issue, I am wondering if it is how I have the menu set up...

The menu in question is at:
http://www.1iopenproductions.com/DWS/index.htm
('DWS' needs to be capitalized)

Here is the CSS I am using:


.navmenu{
float: left;
margin-top:20px;
width: 200px; /*width of accordion menu*/
/* background-color:#000000;*/
}
.navmenu div.menuheader{ /*CSS class for menu headers in general (expanding or not!)*/
font: bold 14px Arial;
width:inherit;
height: 18px;
background: transparent url('../images/navbtn_a.gif') repeat-x top left;
margin-bottom: 10px; /*bottom spacing between header and rest of content*/
text-transform: uppercase;
padding: 6px 0 5px 15px; /*header text is indented 15px*/
cursor: hand;
cursor: pointer;
}
.navmenu div.menuheader a{
text-decoration:none;
color:#FFFFFF;
}
.navmenu div.menuheader:hover { /*CSS class for menu headers in general (expanding or not!)*/
background-image: url('../images/navbtn_02.gif');
background-position:left top;
background-repeat:repeat-x;
}
.navmenu .openheader{ /*CSS class to apply to expandable header when it's expanded*/
background-image: url('../images/navbtn_02.gif');
background-position:left top;
background-repeat:repeat-x;
}

.navmenu div.submenu .opensubmenu {
margin:0;
padding:0;
}

.navmenu ul{ /*CSS for UL of each sub menu*/
list-style-type: none;
margin: 0;
padding: 0;
margin-bottom: 8px; /*bottom spacing between each UL and rest of content*/
}
list-style-type: none;
margin: 0;
padding: 0;
margin-bottom: 8px; /*bottom spacing between each UL and rest of content*/
}
.navmenu ul li{
padding-bottom: 2px; /*bottom spacing between menu items*/
}
.navmenu ul li a{
color: #437B43;
background: url('../images/bullet.png') no-repeat center left; /*custom bullet list image*/
display: block;
padding: 2px 0;
padding-left: 19px; /*link text is indented 19px*/
text-decoration: none;
font-weight: bold;
border-bottom: 1px solid #F0DCB5;
font-size: 90%;
}
.navmenu ul li a:link{
text-decoration:none;
color: #437B43;
}
.navmenu ul li a:visited{
text-decoration:none;
color: #437B43;
}
.navmenu ul li a:hover{ /*hover state CSS*/
text-decoration:none;
color: #437B43;
background-color: #F3F3F3;
}


Here is the HTML I am using:


<div class="navmenu">
<div class="menuheader"><a href="index.htm">Home</a></div>
<div class="submenu"></div>
<div class="menuheader"><a href="#">Services</a></div>
<div class="submenu">
<ul>
<li><a href="digitalmedia.htm">Digital Media Production</a></li>
<li><a href="eventcoverage.htm">Event Coverage</a></li>
<li><a href="personalvideoedit.htm">Personal Video Editing</a></li>
<li><a href="webdesign.htm">Web Design</a></li>
<li><a href="graphicdesign.htm">Graphic Design</a></li>
<li><a href="rtr.htm">Real-Time Remote Video Production/Upload</a></li>
</ul>
</div>
<div class="menuheader"><a href="video.htm">Digital Media</a></div>
<div class="submenu"></div>
<div class="menuheader"><a href="news.htm">News</a></div>
<div class="submenu"></div>
<div class="menuheader"><a href="#">Company</a></div>
<div class="submenu">
<ul>
<li><a href="about.htm">About Us</a></li>
<li><a href="contact.htm">Contact Us</a></li>
</ul>
</div>
<div class="menuheader"><a href="links.htm">Links</a></div>
<div class="submenu"></div>
<div class="menuheader"><a href="series.htm">Web Series Episodes</a></div>
<br/>
</div>


Here are the parameters I am using for the script:


ddaccordion.init({
headerclass: "menuheader", //Shared CSS class name of headers group that are expandable
contentclass: "submenu", //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: [], //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: false, //persist state of opened contents within browser session?
toggleclass: ["opensubmenu", "openheader"], //Two CSS classes to be applied to the header when it's collapsed and expanded, respectively ["class1", "class2"]
togglehtml: ["", "", ""], //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(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
}
})


Any help would be greatly appreciated.

DWS

You nearly gave me a heart attack. To anybody else wanting to be helpful : turn down the speakers

@azoomer:
my apologies to all that may be trying to help. the volume wasn't set in the variables for the player. I have now set it to '50' so no heart attacks occur. Oi!
Thanks for bringing it to my attention.

The workaround I use is to put the following in the head tag:


<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=EmulateIE7"/>
