Can anyone help me make a gradient spry menu? I have it working fine when there are no sub menu's present but i'm getting confused on how to attach the gradient to submenu's any help would be great.

I have gone to this site http://labs.adobe.com/technologies/spry/samples/menubar/MenuBarSample.html and tried to follow the source code for menu bar 3 and it does not work out for me. I don't know what I am doing wrong

Thank you,
-Xavier

Here is my sprymenu.css....the gradient is url(../SiteImages/greygrad.jpg)

first. you have background-color twice in
ul.MenuBarHorizontal a
you will need to add background-repeat if the gradient image is a small 9it should be ) 'slice as it were.
the path
../SiteImages/greygrad.jpg? not SiteImages/greygrad.jpg ? just a guess are you certain that is correct?

thanks edbr but this still didn't fix the problem. I am wondering if I was suppose to put the image somewhere else? any other ideas?
