Hi there--

I want to select the second tab in a section of a page. I'm using Tab Content Script (v 2.2) (http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex17/tabcontent.htm). The method instance.expandit(tabid_or_position) would seem to work. However, I'm having a hard time figuring out how to select the second tab in a section of a page.

Here's my code:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
<title></title>
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="tabcontent.css" />

<script type="text/javascript" src="tabcontent.js">

Hope you could help me with this. Thanks!

The count starts from zero so the second tab would be 1. Otherwise use the ID method and reference it directly.

From the demo page;
<!--Selects 2nd tab within Tab instance "myflowers" -->
<a href="javascript:myflowers.expandit(1)">Select 2nd Tab</a>

<!--Selects tab with ID="roses" within Tab instance "myflowers" -->
<!--Be sure to first insert ID="roses" inside the target tab's link element.
<a href="javascript:myflowers.expandit('roses')">Select "Roses" tab</a>
