View Full Version : Newbie needs HELP....

11-19-2004, 06:56 AM
I have a simple table based HTML webpage. 3 rows, 4 columns.

Top column is a image/logo
Second row is a nav bar with image buttons (jpg) and a java based rollover script

third row is where i need help. I want to be able to click on one of my nav buttons and instead of an entire page loading, i just want whats in the third table row to change. Text, images, what ever.

I want it to act just like this.....
but instead of a tab, have a image button with mouse over and when you actually click on the button, it behaves just like the above link, but in a different table row.

Am I in the right place?

Hi Using the script you quoted, I modified a line ot show you a button replacing the text etc. rgds,Simonf :cool:

<li><a href="http://www.dynamicdrive.com" class="current" onClick="return expandcontent('sc1', this)"><img border="0" id="img1" src="button7.jpg" height="20" width="100" alt="Dynamic Drive" fp-style="fp-btn: Embossed Capsule 1" fp-title="Dynamic Drive" onmouseover="FP_swapImg(1,0,/*id*/'img1',/*url*/'button8.jpg')" onmouseout="FP_swapImg(0,0,/*id*/'img1',/*url*/'button7.jpg')" onmousedown="FP_swapImg(1,0,/*id*/'img1',/*url*/'button9.jpg')" onmouseup="FP_swapImg(0,0,/*id*/'img1',/*url*/'button8.jpg')"></a></td></li>
<li><a href="new.htm" onClick="return expandcontent('sc2', this)" theme="#EAEAFF">What's New</a></li>
<li><a href="hot.htm" onClick="return expandcontent('sc3', this)" theme="#FFE6E6">What's Hot</a></li>
<li><a href="search.htm" onClick="return expandcontent('sc4', this)" theme="#DFFFDF">Search</a></li>

i found this about 15 mins ago....


I have made it work almost how i want it, but I have 1 weird thing i dont understand, 1 REALLY weird thing happen, and 1 I just need knowledge about.

I replaced <A HREF="home.html" onMouseover = ect ect with ...

<h3 onClick="expandcontent('sc1')" style="cursor:hand; cursor:pointer" onMouseover = "filter('im

Put my Div where i wanted it, all good.... HOWEVER......

Problem (semi weird thing) #1. If i close the </h3> at the end, it makes the buttons misalign and i cant move then at all. But it works perfectly even with 5 open tags!

Problem (REALLY weird thing) #2 ...but i think its realted to 1.... page loads, the first time I click on a "nav" button....and it does its rollover perfectly, pulls up Div correctly... but it SHIFTS my logo.jpg at the top! Just does it 1 time, and then its locked... but it still looks fine.

Problem #2.... I want the page to load with 1 of the Div already being open, like a "home" and heres its content. Right now, I load page, nothing is showing until i push a button. I saw in the script it had this....

function do_onload(){
if (enablepersist=="on" && typeof ccollect!="undefined"){
document.cookie=(get_cookie(uniqueidn)=="")? uniqueidn+"=1" : uniqueidn+"=0"
firsttimeload=(get_cookie(uniqueidn)==1)? 1 : 0 //check if this is 1st page load
if (!firsttimeload)

but have no clue what to do

<body onload="FP_preloadImgs(/*url*/'button1A.jpg', /*url*/'button1B.jpg')">
<h3 onClick="expandcontent('sc1')" style="cursor:hand; cursor:pointer">
<img border="0" id="img1" src="button19.jpg" height="30" width="150" alt="What is Java Script" fp-style="fp-btn: Embossed Capsule 1" fp-title="What is Java Script" onmouseover="FP_swapImg(1,0,/*id*/'img1',/*url*/'button1A.jpg')" onmouseout="FP_swapImg(0,0,/*id*/'img1',/*url*/'button19.jpg')" onmousedown="FP_swapImg(1,0,/*id*/'img1',/*url*/'button1B.jpg')" onmouseup="FP_swapImg(0,0,/*id*/'img1',/*url*/'button1A.jpg')"></h3>
<div id="sc1" class="switchcontent">

I am not technical but enjoying the learning experience. why is it that when I get one script to work (such as menus etc) and then install another that they effect each other or one stops working?

With menus, it doesn't usually work by default. Ever.

There's a link in my signature *points* which can help you though.

thats the site I am working on for a friend.

The tables wont span column right either. I know the code is sloppy right now. The <h3> tags arent closed, and when I do, it throws the nav bottums off and I cant move them.

any ideas?
