View Full Version : Sortable table with subtables?

01-30-2010, 02:01 PM
I have made a table and am able to sort the contents of it, using yoast's table sorting. (http://yoast.com/articles/sortable-table/). But now i need to know if it's possible to make it so when you click on some text in the table, the rest of the table below that text moves down and a subtable is displayed.

For example if i have a table of training courses and i click on one of the courses the bottom part moves down and the dates for the course are displayed in a subtable.

Does anyone know if this is possible, or know a table sorting script that can do this?

Please let me know if this doesn't makes sense.

I've made a mockup image to make it easier to explain. The first image is the table i've got at the moment, but i want to be able to show subcells like in picture 2.
