View Full Version : Dynamic Ajax Content; open with default page

08-16-2006, 10:28 PM
1) Script Title: Dynamic Ajax Content

2) Script URL (on DD): http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex17/ajaxcontent.htm

3) Describe problem: Is there a way that I can have a specific page load in the RightColumn when the whole page loads.

Using the demo as an example: Instead of having "Choose a page to load." come up when you open the page; have a specific page like the Porsche page open by default?

You could make anything the default home page. You don't need to have "Choose a page to load" as your home page. That's just a demo.

can you help me with the code to have the first link on the menu open when the pageis loaded? I figured out how to change the text, but I can't seem to figure out how to put a webpage in there. Thanks.

From the demo page:

You can even load an external page without requiring the click of a link, by calling the function directly:

<script type="text/javascript">
ajaxpage('test.htm', 'rightcolumn') //load "test.htm" into "rightcolumn" DIV

Change the above scriptlet's parameters to your desired page's location and loading area's id. Place it in the body section of your 'top' page, after the loading area's markup, ex:

<div id="myarea"></div>
<script type="text/javascript">
ajaxpage('myinitial.htm', 'myarea')
