Hide menu after click?

I am using Easy CSS Menu. I have the links load into an iframe on the same page below the menu. Some of my menus are large and cover up the content when they are expanded. After clicking on a menu item that loads a link in the iframe, the menu doesn't hide....and it covers the content.

How do I make the menu auto hide after a link is clicked?

Thanks!

If you're using JavaScript to load URL to iframe then you can call:

EBMMMenu.hide()

Thanks! I am not using javascript to load the URLs, but I can change that.I know very little about javascript, I got the page to load, but where would I put the EBMMMenu.hide() function?

<li id="123" class="gradient_menuitem gradient31 first_item"><a href="http://example.com/page1.html" target="Articles" title="" onclick="replaceIframeURL('Articles', this.href); return false" >Page 1</a></li>

When editing the menu in EBMM, in URL field put:

javascript:replaceIframeURL('Articles', this.href); EBMMMenu.hide();

The "javascript:" in front will tell EBMM that this is not simply an URL but script.

Just to be clear, I am using Easy CSS Menu 4.0, not EBMM. I couldn't get it to work in the tool, but I was able to manually adjust the HTML to call the hide function.
The hide function works, but the very next time I go to the menu, it drops down with the values pre-chosen from last time....and the 3rd level is on top of the second level.
I have included some screenshots of the way the menu looks during first click, and then second click after calling hide function. It doesn't look correct.
First click looks OK

Subsequent clicks look wrong
