I want to create a form button that, when clicked, will expand a bookmark. Or, I want a bookmark to expand when navigating to a certain page.

I found this javascript somewhere else but it won't work.

tocbm = this.bookmarkRoot.children[0];
tocbm.execute;

Does anyone know if this is possible, thanks.

Well, your question is old, but I'm new to EE so I could not answer earlier.

The execute method can only be used to call a defined action. Because there is no action like opening a bookmark subtree, that method cannot be used for this purpose.

You can instead use the open attribute of bookmarkroot children objects:

this.bookmarkRoot.children[0].open = 1;

would open the subtree while ...open = 0 would close it.

Have fun
