Thread: expand/collapse, auto collapse when another para is expanded?

    Smile expand/collapse, auto collapse when another para is expanded?

    So I have some code for an expand/collapse feature which is working at present, except there are several sections and the page gets very long and confusing when several are expanded. Does anyone know how I can add an auto collapse to these sections when another one is expanded?

    I might have missed out a </div> or something when copying the code as I'm trying to just take the relevant bits, but it does work. My second question - does anyone know how I can make the text XXX activate the expand/collapse? In SEO terms, I'm trying to make each button and text, add XXX to the URL for ratings as you can see from the href (Obviously the headings aren't actually a line of 'X's).

    I'd appreciate any help.


    Here is the code I'm using:

    <script type="text/javascript">
    function toggleMe(a){
    var e=document.getElementById(a);
    if(!e)return true;
    if(e.style.display=="none"){
    e.style.display="block"
    }
    else{
    e.style.display="none"
    }
    return true;
    }
    </script>


    <div class="cat-divider"><!-- --></div>
    <table style="width: 100%;">
    <tbody>
    <tr>
    <td>
    <h2><span style="color: #007CD7;"><a name="XXX" href="#XXX"><span style="font-size: 12pt;">XXX</span></a></span></h2>
    </td>
    <td align="right"><a href="#XXX"><input type="button" value="Expand/Close" onclick="return toggleMe('para1')" /></a></td>
    </tr>
    </tbody>
    </table>
    <div class="cat-divider"><!-- --></div>
    <div style="display:none" id="para1">


    blah blah blah blah blah


    <p><a href="#">[Top] </a></p>
    <div class="cat-divider"><!-- --></div>
    </div>

    What's the point of having a hyperlink wrapping a button?
    <a href="#XXX"><input type="button" value="Expand/Close" onclick="return toggleMe('para1')" /></a>

    The button can receive click events and will prevent your page from jumping.
    <input type="button" value="Expand/Close" onclick="toggleMe('para1')" />

    If however you just want to add the "XXX" to the URL then there is not point in using a button

    <a href="#XXX" onclick="return toggleMe('para1')" >Expand/Close</a>
    Use CSS to style the hyperlink to look like a button if that's the visual effect you need.

    I'm using the following code to expand/collapse.

    I want to remove the two lines:

    <script src="http://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.8.2.js"></script>
    <script src="http://code.jquery.com/ui/1.9.1/jquery-ui.js"></script>

    Basically, I don't want to call anything into the script. When I remove/edit them, the links can't be expanded. I'm new to this and would appreciate some help.

    <!doctype html>
    <html lang="en">
    <head>
    <meta charset="utf-8" />
    <title>jQuery UI Accordion - Default functionality</title> <link rel="stylesheet" href="http://code.jquery.com/ui/1.9.1/themes/base/jquery-ui.css" />
    <script src="http://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.8.2.js"></script>
    <script src="http://code.jquery.com/ui/1.9.1/jquery-ui.js"></script>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="/resources/demos/style.css" />
    <script>
    $(function() {
    $( "#accordion" ).accordion(); });
    </script></head><body> <div id="accordion">
    <h3>Section 1</h3>
    <div>
    <p>
    Blah
    </p> </div> <h3>Section 2</h3>
    <div>
    <p>
    Blah
    </p>
    </div>
    <h3>Section 3</h3>
    <div>
    <p>
    blah
    </p>
    <ul>
    </ul>
    </div>

    @Blanksy. You need to start a new thread to ask your question.
    The rules in the forum prohibit one from jumping in an ongoing conversation to ask another question.
    It appear you are new here, so I understand.
    I would be happy to answer your question but you need to move your post and start a new thread.
