Thanks

Do you mean an outliner? Something that expands when clicked
like in windows explorer

Root
+ item1
+ item2
- expanded item3
  + subitem3.1
    subitem3.2, no sub here...
  + subitem3.3

If that is the case, I have a couple

You will need to use either an ActiveX Control or a Java Control there is nothing intristic with HTML that will allow you to do it.

Free Tool: Path Explorer

An intuitive utility to help find the CSS path to UI elements on a webpage. These paths are used frequently in a variety of front-end development and QA automation tasks.

One of a set of tools we're offering as a way of saying thank you for being a part of the community.

Yes mplungjan... that's what I'm looking for... Can I use it with ASP ? ? ? Can I see the outliner with Netscape and Internet Explorer? ? ?

Michel PlungjanIT ExpertCommented:
Reject Jagar's incomplete and wrong answer, and I will post a JavaScript outliner that works with IE3.0 and up and NS2.02 and up. No activeX and no Java so compatible with 16 bit browsers too.

If you wish to use ASP to generate it, no problem.

mplungjan: Maybe I the file has corrupted or I don´t know how to put it to work, but the following two erros appears in Netscape 4.05:

1) parent.initIt is not a function

2) illegal character
   BGColor   = '#8099B2';
   .....^

Quite possible - it seems some weird characters sneak in when cutting and pasting here...
I will send it to you immediately
