Question: How to assign active-menuitem

In pa:tabmenu I cannot figure out how menu items get assigned class="active-menuitem". There does not seem to be any rhyme or reason on which menu items are highlighted by default. I see once I click a menu option the active-menuitem class gets assigned but nothing about defaulting or allowing us to assign what menu item is active.

Is there some way to control this?

Clear all active menu items?

I think you can use atlantis_expandeditems cookie.
To add an item; PF('menuWidget').addMenuitem(id)
To clear all item; PF('menuWidget').clearMenuState();

So clearMenuState clears the cookie of the state of expanded items etc but does not clear the "active-item" style from the menu.

What I want is a widget function like menu.clearActiveState() which for a menu walks its children and performs a item.removeClass('active-menuitem');

Added clearActiveItems method to next release for pa:menu.
