#Post 1 of 2.

1) Script Title:
lets develope a new Ajax Tabs Content Script version
2) Script URL (on DD):
3) Describe resolution:
I did some changes in ajaxtabs.js to get work well links with and without JavaScript support on Internet Browser.
All href I placed to type. So ajaxtabs.js link will be in type.
<a href="/en/design:a_href23" type="/en/design:a_href23/ajax:imgmax" rel="tmbcontainer" id="a_href23">..</a>
It looks on openning without JavaScript support http://tag.oo.lv/en/design:a_href23
and with JavaScript support the same look in http://tag.oo.lv/en/design

ajaxtabs.js makes to show http://tag.oo.lv/en/design:a_href23/ajax:imgmax content on <DIV ID="tmbtabs">..</DIV>

ajaxtabs.js + PHP
//-----code start
//** Ajax Tabs Content script v2.0- Dynamic Drive DHTML code library (http://www.dynamicdrive.com)
//** Updated Oct 21st, 07 to version 2.0. Contains numerous improvements
//** Updated Feb 18th, 08 to version 2.1: Adds a public "tabinstance.cycleit(dir)" method to cycle forward or backward between tabs dynamically. Only .js file changed from v2.0.
//** Updated April 8th, 08 to version 2.2:
// -Adds support for expanding a tab using a URL parameter (ie: http://mysite.com/tabcontent.htm?tabinterfaceid=0)
// -Modified Ajax routine so testing the script out locally in IE7 now works

in the web site PHP code where ajaxpage must be displayed on <DIV ID="tmbtabs">..</DIV>

//--Cookies for tmbtabs
//--------Send a cookie for id=tmbtabs------------
$setCookie = array();

$file_storeportfolio = 'data.dat'; //Include file for Porfolio store
$count_lines = count($file);
foreach($file as $row){
list($a,$b,$a_href) = explode('|', $row);
$setCookie[] = array('a_href'=>$a_href);
foreach($setCookie as $key => $set){
$cookienum=$count_lines-($key+1); //line by $info
if($set['a_href'] == $info){
//echo $cookienum;
setcookie('tmbtabs',$cookienum,time()+3600,'/'); //Send a cookie

$loadajaxpage = <<<JS

list($a,$b,$c,$d,$e,$f,$g,$h)=explode('|', $file[$line_num]);
$loadajaxpage = <<<JS

//here in id2.php you can include file where by $id2 request will be print'ed the same information like is http://tag.oo.lv/en/design:a_href23/ajax:imgmax for ajaxtabs.js displayed on <DIV ID="tmbtabs">..</DIV>
include('id2.php'); /* in my page is some differences like if($_GET['ajax']=="imgmax"){ include('ajax_echo.php'); } etc */

echo <<<HTML
<noscript>You need to anable the JavaScript usebility.<br /><br />This is some default tab content, embedded directly inside this space and not via Ajax. It can be shown when no tabs are automatically selected, or associated with a certain tab, in this case, the first tab.</noscript><br />
<br />
<br /></div>
<script type="text/javascript">
var tmb=new ddajaxtabs("tmbtabs", "tmbdivcontainer")
tmb.setselectedClassTarget("link") //"link" or "linkparent"


jQuery(document).ready(function($){ $('a[rel*=facebox]').facebox() })

I would like to set cookies not by count (number) but like by ID value. For sample, cookie on clicking on <a href="/en/design:a_href23" type="/en/design:a_href23/ajax:imgmax" rel="tmbcontainer" id="a_href23">..</a> must be 'a_href23'.
And even better could be in place of using Cookies to use PHP SESSION's.

See the demo.htm in Attachement 2484
The href is placed to type, so in any case if Browser didn't display a Ajax Tabs Content (becose of blocked JavaScript support in Browser on old Browser etc), the page is still working well.

Could you plese figure out for me how to save Cookies by ID in, sample,
<ul id="countrytabs" class="shadetabs">
<li><a href="page1.htm" type="external1.htm" id="external1" rel="countrycontainer">Tab 1</a></li>
<li><a href="page2.htm" type="external2.htm" id="external2" rel="countrycontainer">Tab 2</a></li>
<li><a href="page3.htm" type="external3.htm" id="external3" rel="countrycontainer">Tab 3</a></li>
<a href="javascript:mycountrys.cycleit('prev')" style="margin-right: 250px; text-decoration:none">Back</a>
<a href="javascript:mycountrys.cycleit('next')" style="text-decoration:none">Forward</a>
and to get it work also with Back/Forward option.

Thanks a lot!

Should this work?

<FORM name="form1" action="javascript: countries.loadajaxpage('/addlink.asp')" enctype="multipart/form-data" method="post">

I'm trying to open this page in the same tab container it starts from, but it doesn't seem to be working at the moment.

Anyone have any ideas?
