Before i begin, let me say that I am using

Milonic DHTML Menu - JavaScript Website Navigation System. Version 5.50

Ok, so here is what i would like to do. I am calculating a number on the webpage using javascript, and I would like that number to be displayed on a menu item. I don't know how to send my text into the javascript file, so the Milonic menu will display that number i calculated. Can anyone help me out?

For a more detailed descritption, look at my the link below. If you put your cursor on the moving icon, it will display's Milonic dynamic pop up menu. I want a menu item to have the dynamically caluculated number i produce.

Your example url didn't work for me (timed out). So I can't give specifics. But there's a function called mm_changeItemProperty(), described in this thread, that can be used to change any menu item property dynamically. You should be able to use it pretty easily to cange the text of a menu item (an item's text property is a codeRef of 1).

Cheers,
