Hi

I need help with the a three layered accordian menu
The accordian menu is a beautiful control.. but i am not able to figure out how to persist the state of a clicked list item

Here is the problem:
i have a menu like the following

<Main Node>
<subnode>
<subnode with menu>
<item >
<itme>
<subnode with menu>
< item>
<item>
<Main Node>
<Main Node>

Problem 1 :

if the user one selects on the subnode it should both expand and redirect .. i have that in place ..

it should high light in a certain color .. in Dark green

Problem 2 :


If the user clicks on the item ... the item should high light is a different color .. tipically in yellow .. the parent should retain its original color

I have even initialized the second level accordian ... here is the script

ddaccordion.init({
headerclass: "submenuheader", //Shared CSS class name of headers group
contentclass:"submenu" , //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: [], //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: ["", "selected"], //Two CSS classes to be applied to the header when it's collapsed and expanded, respectively ["class1", "class2"]
togglehtml: ["suffix", "", ""], //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(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
if (state=="block" && isuseractivated==true){ //if header is expanded and as the result of the user initiated action
window.location.replace(header.getAttribute('href'))
}
}
})


ddaccordion.init({ //2nd level headers initialization
headerclass: "subexpandable", //Shared CSS class name of sub headers group that are expandable
contentclass: "subcategoryitems", //Shared CSS class name of sub 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: [], //index of content(s) open by default [index1, index2, etc]. [] denotes no content
animatedefault: false, //Should contents open by default be animated into view?
persiststate: true, //persist state of opened contents within browser session?
toggleclass: ["", "selected"], //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(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
if (state=="block" && isuseractivated==true){ //if header is expanded and as the result of the user initiated action
window.location.replace(header.getAttribute('href'))
}
}
})
