1) Script Title: Glossy Accordion Menu with responsive headers


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

3) Describe problem: I want to be able to mix the options on the two versions of this menu type (Standard and 'Responsive' headers) so that I can have one header simply expand, or expand and also open a link (responsive).

Any ideas?

Firstly, a responsive header is implemented merely using the onopenclose() event handler of the script. With that said, you can simply modify the code inside this event handler to respond only selectively, accomplishing what you want. For example, the below example takes the default "responsive header" demo and modifies it so only the first header when expanded loads a page inside the IFRAME (the second header merely expands):

<p><iframe name="myiframe" style="width: 90%; height: 300px; border:1px solid black"></iframe></p>

<p>Assuming the current page is named "current.htm", the below links when navigated to expands a particular header on that page:</p>
<p>
- <a href="current.htm?submenuheader=0">Expand 1st header within "submenuheader" header group</a><br />
</p>

The key here is to make use of the "index" parameter to detect and apply our intended action only when a certain header(s) is expanded, where 0=first header, 1=2nd etc. More info on the onopenclose event handler here (http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex17/ddaccordion_suppliment2.htm).
