1) Script Title: Smoothmenu drop down arrows

2) Script URL (on DD): http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex1/ddsmoothmenu.htm

3) Describe problem:
I have an "in-house" application that we're developing. Sometimes, when a user goes to the page, the dop down list in the menu doesn't show up. They have to navigate to an external page (like google.com), and go back to the page and refresh for the menu to work right. Any suggestions on how to fix this?

Unless this is a problem on the demo page, you will need to provide us with a link to your page so we can test it.

Is it just the arrows that don't show up? If so, you could try preloading them. Add this highlighted code at the very end of the ddsmoothmenu.js script script as shown:

. . . else{ //else if markup menu
ddsmoothmenu.buildmenu($, setting)

} //end ddsmoothmenu variable

var p = [];
for (var i = ims.length - 1; i > -1; --i){
p[i] = new Image();
p[i].src = ims[i];
})([ddsmoothmenu.arrowimages.down[1], ddsmoothmenu.arrowimages.right[1]]);

If it's something else, please be specific. Also, put up a demo of the problem somewhere on the web where we can see it.
