expandable divs question for lengthy page

8 New Member
I am using the following script for expandable divs but ...the focus is on the top of the page ie..the div id #quiz, and I am trying to use if for a lengthy FAQ page.
when you scroll to the bottom of the page and open a question, the focus pops back to the top of the page.
I thought of defining several sections, but when I do only one is collapsed, the others are open on page load

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. <script language="JavaScript" type="text/JavaScript"> 
  2. indent=5;//set here the left indent in pixels 
  3. iup='images/blueup.gif'//set here the up arrow relative location 
  4. idrop='images/bluedrop.gif'//set here the drop arrow relative location 
  5. //No need to modify below 
  6. function coll(){ 
  7. var dd=document.getElementById('quiz').getElementsByTagName('div'); 
  8. var aa=document.getElementById('quiz').getElementsByTagName('im'); 
  9. for (var i=1;i<dd.length;i=i+2){ 
  10. dd[i].style.position='relative'; 
  11. dd[i].style.display='none'; 
  12. dd[i].style.left=indent+'px'; 
  13. for (var j=0;j<aa.length;j++){ 
  14. im=aa[j].getAttribute('src'); 
  15. if(im==idrop){ 
  16. aa[j].setAttribute('src',iup);break 
  17. function activ(w){ 
  18. var d=w.parentNode.getElementsByTagName('div')[0]; 
  19. var a=w.firstChild; 
  20. if(d.style.display=='none'){ 
  21. coll(); 
  22. d.style.display='inline'; 
  23. a.setAttribute('src',idrop); 
  24. else{ 
  25. d.style.display='none'; 
  26. a.setAttribute('src',iup); 
  27. onload=coll; 
  28. </script>

Thanks, but they are set to display none.
What I have found is that in a tabbed page, you must put the javascript at the beginning of the tab instead of the page to get the divs to collapse.
But when I have a set of divs on each tab, I can only get one set to collapse. I tried renaming the set to quiz2, I also tried renaming the function that is called, even renamed all the variables, but I can only get one set or the other to close on load, not both.

No, I didn't mean close them. They shouldn't even be open in the first place.

Either set an inline style, e.g.
[HTML]<div id="..." style="display: none;" ...>[/HTML] or declare this in a style sheet using the class name.

I tried both but the effect of both is the same, all within the div tag is not displayed.
I am sorry, I just do not know how to fix this myself

In your style1, you've set display to 'block'. Set it to 'none' and see if that works.

I even thought of that, and it does work to collapse the questions, in appearance, but when clicked no answers show either.

In the onclick, just set the display to 'block' and it should show.

I've got two queries; one is a modification of an older query; the other I created from scratch. The old one is about 5 copies down the road from something that has been expandable when I'm in View mode--it showed the Points of Contact for records whose Begin Date was in a form-selected (or manually inputted) year. That used to be all it did. Then copied it, took out the year criterion, and changed "POC" to show the Director field...

I've seen a lot of examples of expandable/collapsable lists, such as these nice examples: http://www.karlnelson.net/nestedlists/ and http://dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex1/navigate1.htm They use javascript of course, and that's the problem. There's no graceful degradation with javascript disabled. Any links in the hidden sub-items will become inaccessible.

I'm experimenting with converting a site from a table layout to CSS. I'm floating three DIVs in a row for the top of a website (a logo, navigation buttons and a email list signup box). The DIVs have a grey background. When I view the page in Firefox, I get what I hoped for: there is a solid grey rectangle at the top of the website. When I view the page in Internet Explorer 6 (WinXP), there is a gap between two right hand DIVs (i.e. a...

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
