Subject: SideMenu: SPAN for active option is not enough

I want to set a fixed width background image for the active option. This is quite easy to achieve on all situations (normal, mouse-over, etc) except on the active option because active option is defined with a extra SPAN inside the TD instead of a specific css for the TD. Since SPAN is applied to the text, any borders or backgrounds I wish to set through it will always depend on the text and its length.

So, instead of (or besides) an extra SPAN, we need a specific CSS for the TD.

We really need this. Can it be implemented in Inventua.SideMenu? Maybe as an option?

Thanks in advance,
Thomas Jachmann

I have the same problem, but I don't want to set a background-image but simply the background color. Has there been any progress regarding this topic?

Best regards

Yes, we implemented a solution where we add the current item/header class to the TD element instead of the SPAN. Send an email to and I will send you a copy.
