How to use divisions or some other technique to create a "drilldown" effect
Posted on 2003-03-17
I have an application that creates an Excel style display (basically a spreadsheet) and I have a need to be able to normally "hide" the detail but if a header is clicked, then display the detail below it.
For example I may have data and a display like this:
When I click BBB, I want BBB to expand and the display to look like this:
This data was all originally stored in a single table and I could not get the expand/collapse to work. Later I tried making each row it's own table and using division to hide/unhide them. This worked sortof but when I hide a division, instead of the rest of the page collapsing, instead that section just went blank. Any ideas to how make this work
