Problem with expanding/collapsing menus and NE7

P: n/a
Hi,

I created an expanding menu on one of the frames in my
webpage using code I got from
http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex1/navigate1.htm

I have embedded the code (with minor modification to point
to my links) into a frame on my webpage.

The problem is that when I open the page on netscape 7,
the exapnding menu does not expand the first time.
However, if I *reload* the page (by hitting the reload
button), then the expanding menu works.

This doesnt fail! The first time I load the page the
expanding menu doesnt work, if I reload it does...

I would appreciate any advice at all on how to fix this.

Thanks,
Bhiksha

Unfortunately, the only reasonable advice is to abandon that script. The
majority of script collections are worthless junk, and that includes what
I've seen of Dynamic Drive and The JavaScript Source.

The only reasonable menu scripts I've seen is the one used on the Netscape
DevEdge website, and the two recommended on that same site. Still, all
them need work as they involve browser detection to function properly[1],
or feature detection is not used.

The other two menu systems are linked in the Conclusion.

[1] No matter what anyone might say, browser detection is impossible to do
with any certainty.
