I have a Tree view forum.
I need to create a recursive javascript function in order to 'close messages' (I use the display property - block/none) and their children.

Each item of the tree is in a <TR> named "rec" with a unique ID which is structed like ID="TopParentID,Level,MessageID,ParentID".

 -TopParentID=Top most message of the thread
 -Level=Level of the current messege within the thread
 -MessageID=Message ID
 -ParentID=Parent ID of the current message.

here is what I did: (and doesn't work)
--------------------
***the GetTree function is being called upon closing an item in the thread

function GetTree(ParID)
{

allTRs=document.all.tags("tr")
TRLength=allTRs.length
     
for (i=0;i<TRLength;i++)
     {
      if (allTRs.item(i).name=="rec" )
          {
                   
               var Arrsplit=allTRs.item(i).id.split(",");
               var SunID=Arrsplit[0]
               var LevelThread=Arrsplit[1]
               var MesID=Arrsplit[2]
               var ParentID=Arrsplit[3]
               if (ParentID==ParID)
                    {
                    eval("document.all('"+SunID+","+LevelThread+","+MesID+","+ParentID+"').style.display='none'")
                    GetTree(MesID)          
                    }
         
               
          }
         
     }          
               
               
}

You can use <DIV> tags and JavaScript to make it work.  Just have the JavaScript show and hide the <DIV> tags, the only possible problem with this would be when the page initially loads.  If there are thousands of threads on one page, it would load them all before allowing the user to navigate the page.
