show/hide any division

P: n/a
I'm working on a menu system where I have a 3 column table affair.
On start, you see a menu list in column 1.
Column2 will have some general information.
Column3 is an iframe for final data input.

About every damn thing I've seen on how to do this is the pure bare
bones basics. That is, click button 1 to hide, click button 2 to show.
Not what I want.
Or, they simply toggle a division below the "switch".

What I want to do is, when a user clicks on the main menu list, what
ever item is in column2 is replaced by that choice. Then when an item
is chosen in column 2, the iframe shows the results.

Anyone got a site where this might be happening at?
It's a royal PITA searching through google.

Hi Richard,

What you ask is really vague. I am sure we can help you, but make sure
you write a coherent question.
For example, what do you mean by this:
"when a user clicks on the main menu list, whatever item is in column2
is replaced by that choice."
DO you want your column2 to hold to value (text?) of something?

If so:
<div id="column2"></div>

then replace like this:
<script type="text/javascript">
function replaceCol2(newtext){
document.getElementById("column2").innerHTML = newtext;
}
</script>

You won't learn JavaScript well from googling around.
I advise you to buy a good book, eg JavaScript, the Definitive Guide.

This is the first I have heard of data input in this "menu system."
You are going to have to explain this design a little better or post
an example page.

That doesn't really help.
