I have a div that needs to open according to the position of a link. The link appears on many pages at different position and the div MUST always open next to it.


<html>
<head>
<title>Untitled</title>
<script>
function showd(element) {
var el = document.getElementById(element);
el.style.display = "block";
}
</script>

<style>.div_watch_commentst_right{position:absolute;left:100px;top:100px;}</style>
</head>
<body>

<div id="myDivcom" style="display:none;border:1px solid red;width:350px;" class="div_watch_commentst_right">text comes here</div>

<a href="#" onClick="showd('myDivcom')" class="link">link1</a>
<br>
<a href="#" onClick="showd('myDivcom')" class="link">link2</a>
</body>
</html>

I want the DIV to ALWAYS open close to its link

// Basic Element Animator (29-December-2008) DRAFT
// by Vic Phillips http://www.vicsjavascripts.org.uk

// To progressively change the Left, Top, Width, Height or Opacity of an element over a specified period of time.
// With three types of progression 'sin' and 'cos' and liner.

// **** Application Notes

// **** The HTML Code
//
// when moving an element the inline or class rule style position of the element should be assigned as
// 'position:relative;' or 'position:absolute;'.
//
// The element would normally be assigned a unique ID name.
//

// **** Executing the Effect(Script)
//
// The effect is executed by an event call to function 'zxcBAnimator('width#',document.getElementById('tst'),10,800,5000,[10,800],'sin');'
// where:
// parameter 0 = the mode(see Note 2). (string)
// parameter 1 = the unique ID name or element object. (string or element object)
// parameter 2 = the start position of the effect. (digits, for opacity minimum 0, maximum 100)
// parameter 3 = the finish position of the effect. (digits, for opacity minimum 0, maximum 100)
// parameter 4 = (optional) period of time between the start and finish of the effect in milliseconds. (digits or defaults to 2000 milliSeconds)
// parameter 5 = (optional) to scale the effect time on a secified minimum/maximum. (array, see Note 5)
// field 0 the minimum. (digits)
// field 1 the maximum. (digits)
// parameter 6 = (optional) the type of progression, 'sin', 'cos' or 'liner'. (string, default = 'liner')
// 'sin' progression starts fast and ends slow.
// 'cos' progression starts slow and ends fast.
//
// Note 1: The default units(excepting opacity) are 'px'.
// Note 2: Examples modes: 'left', 'top', 'width', 'height', 'opacity.
// For hyphenated modes, the first character after the hyphen must be upper case, all others lower case.
// Note 3: To 'toggle' the effect include '#' in parameter 0.
// The first call will set the toggle parameters.
// Subsequent calls with '#' in parameter 0 and the same start and finish parameters will 'toggle' the effect.
// Note 4: The function may be re-executed with a different set of parameters (start/finish time or period)
// whenever required, say from an onclick/mouseover/out event.
// The period parameter will be retained unless re-specified.
// Note 5: parameter 5 is of particular use when re-calling the effect
// in mid travel to retain an constant rate of progression.
//
// **** Advanced Applications
//
// It may be required to access the current value of the effect.
// The element effect is accessible from the element property
// element effect = elementobject[mode.replace(/\W/g,'')+'oop'];
// where mode is parameter 0 of the initial call.
// An array storing the current, start and finish values of the element effect may be accessed
// from the element effect.data as fields 0, 1 and 2 respectively
//

// **** General
//
// All variable, function etc. names are prefixed with 'zxc' to minimise conflicts with other JavaScripts.
// These characters may be changed to characters of choice using global find and replace.
//
// The Functional Code(about 2.06K) is best as an External JavaScript.
//
// Tested with IE7 and Mozilla FireFox on a PC.
//



// **** Functional Code - NO NEED to Change
