The links below don't seem to do any role stuff that I can find.  BTW:
there are some bugs in the dhtmlDropdown.jsp with IE6.  
Maybe I am reading the code incorrectly but the DropDown displayer never
calls isAllowed or works with an object that does  The coolmenu
displayer does makes calls although it's structure is a tad different
than the drop down.  I have started doing the analysis of where to put
the checks to enable the role/permission implementation.
The tree menu link is really interesting.  The guy and his bud's are
really good. 
BTW: I reworked the cookies and got the menu's to act consistently from
page to page.  
Thanks again

It should already be built into the following Displayers using the
"roles" attribute on a menu or item.
For saving a menu's expanded location - you might want to look at the
following Tree menu.  I hope to add support for this type of menu in the
coming weeks.

Would it be simple to implement roles and permissions on the
DropDownDisplayer?  I have started to look at it and am not sure of all
the touch points.
BTW: my solution for restoring a menu position on a target page with the
same menu as the prior page is sub-optimal.  The only solution I could
come up with saved menu down and up movements and created expiring
cookies on menu selection.  Of course if you do any other action the
menu doesn't redrop.  If you are using contexts, the cookies are
discarded across the change of context.  It looks like the only way to
really make menu position controllable is to do some server side stuff.
An interesting project.
Thanks for your help.
