Hi John,

Are you by any chance trying to select an item that
has a submenu attached to it ? In cascading menus, you
can only select the leaves of the tree, not the nodes.
Example :
  A              <- not selectable
     A.1         <- not selectable
        A.1.1    <- selectable
        A.1.2    <- selectable
        A.1.3    <- selectable
     A.2         <- selectable
     A.3         <- selectable

Hope this helped,

Jan Schenkel.
