Remember when setting a plugin parameter from the FPP XML file, that the plugin name must always be written in lower case, ie. "external.panomenu.salign=BL".

Parameter and attribute names are not case sensitive ("bgcolor" is equal to "BGColor").

If a background image larger than the menu is used, it will be automatically masked.

The "click=xxx" parameter can be used at any time to simulate an menu item click. The onClick command will be executed and the menu will be hidden if "hideOnClick" is set.

The "select=xxx" parameter can also be used to select a menu item. But the onClick command will NOT be executed and the menu will NOT be automatically hidden.

If the "id" attribute is not specified for menu items, the value of the "click" and "select" parameters will be matched against the menu item "text" attribute.
