Q: Thank you for your prompt reply. But i was wondering where should I paste this code? Can you please explain the working of the javascript toolbar menu function
dm_ext_changeItemVisibility (menuInd, submenuInd, itemInd, visibility)

I have 5 items in the javascript toolbar menu : Admin Options, Status Report, Remarks, Edit Profile, Data Entry.

I want to disable some fields for different users.
I have 3 role id's set in my database.
I want certain fields disabled for different users.
For eg : For Roleid =1 , i.e admin , I want all items to be visible.
For Roleid =2 , i dont want the Admin Options to be visible.
For Roleid=3 , I dont want Admin Options & Status reports.

Can you please elaborate on the working of the changeItemVisibility function. I was confused as there were no examples to demonstrate the code.

Q: I have just downloaded your trial version and am trying to use java menu maker using the windows xpstyle1 template. I can only seem to get the top button showing as grey but can change colors of submenus OK. Am I missing something or is this a restriction of the trial system i.e. how do I get the top button showing the same as submenu buttons

A: Trial version of java menu maker has full functionality of the licensed version.

To change submenu colors you should change the following parameters:

  var menuBackColor="#F2F3F2";

and Individual Submenu Style:
  var menuStyles = [
["menuBackColor=#F2F3F2","menuBorderWidth=0","itemSpacing=0","itemPadding=4px","smOrientation=undefined"],
];

For the top items you should change Individual Item style:
  var itemStyles = [
["itemHeight=21px","itemBackColor=#F2F3F2,#535353"],
];
