HTML+Javascript tree menu

I am trying to make a one level tree menu with the help of a simple java script function and html.
I am using this html as my frist and second level of menu.

<ul id="foldheader">
Testing menu
</ul>
<ul id="foldinglist" style="display:none">
second level
</ul>

to hide/display all i do is call this function [in IE] and this works in IE.

if (event.srcElement.id=="foldheader") {

var srcIndex = event.srcElement.sourceIndex
var nested = document.all[srcIndex+1]
if (nested.style.display=="none")
{
 nested.style.display=''
}
else
{
 nested.style.display="none"
}
}
I am unable to catch the event in netscape. Any idea/solution how to toggle the <ul id="foldinglist"
style="display:none"> to display="visible" for *NETSCAPE*. This is very urgent for me.As is visible
from the question points that i am awarding.

qudoos, Unordered lists do not have events in Netscape...you will have to use a DIV or a layer for that...

well, yeah i think i figured this one out that they dont have events. But what if i say "document.onclick" and call my function, i may still be able to change the status of the unordered list? right? all i need is to change the status from none to visible.

I'm pretty sure that it won't work...

If you want the same effect in Netscape you just need layers...correct me if I'm wrong anyone...

An event on the document is of no use to you because Netscrap is still not going to know what element was clicked.  

You have to use layers.

BTW, even with layers you probably still have a problem in Netscrape.  Changing the display attribute reuires re-rendering.  Netscrap generally will not do that without a reload of the page if eleemnts have to be repossitioned.  If there are any form elements on the page that have to be re rendered, Netscrap will either crash or ignore the function.

For dynamic disply in Netscrap you are going to have to use visibility modification on the layeres if you want to have any hope of actually getting Netscrap to give you some reasonable rendition of the effect

LOL!!!

well, i got the point...and i can see that NETSCRAP is still not going to know what element was clicked.well said!
   
anyways, I just didnt want to do it with layers. I dont have much time to make the layers move up and down.Thanks though!
but since it is the same answer, i will award the points to DreamMaster who is trying to tell me the same thing over and over again.

Thanks!

If you want to have a look at an example....take a look at:

http://www.vodw.com/

In the left menu appear two drop downs...either one will do...select an option from that menu and another menu will load there...that menu has layers that go up and down..the code is actually not that hard...and if you have problems...I can help you.. :)

Thanks allready for wanting to award me the points.. :)
