    Default Accordion menu script header open background image?

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

    2) Script URL (on DD):

    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:

    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 event handler that affords you even more flexibility.
