CHANGE COLOR QUESTION (AGAIN...)

Hi experts,

I have the following code:

<html>
<head>
<title></title>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
<script type="text/javascript">
<!--
function colorMe(obj,oId){
     var el = document.getElementById(obj);
     var e = document.getElementById(oId);
     if(document.getElementById){
          el.style.backgroundColor = 'red';
          el.firstChild.style.color = 'yellow';
          e.style.backgroundColor = '';
          e.firstChild.style.color = '';
     }
}
     
// -->
</script>
</head>
<body>
<table width="100%" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">
  <tr>
    <td id="one"><a href="#" onclick="colorMe('one','two');return false;">TEST</a></td>
    <td id="two"><a href="#" onclick="colorMe('two','one');return false;">TEST 2</a></td>
  </tr>
</table>
</body>
</html>


I also have 2 10 row tables of data (TABLE1 AND TABLE2). I am trying to get only one of them to be displayed based on which link (TEST OR TEST2) is clicked.

Basically the table needs to sit directly under the table which you see in the code above. If TEST is clicked then TABLE1 should be displayed. If TEST 2 is clicked then TABLE2 should be displayed.

I am looking for the same kind of effect that could be achieved by a "swapImage".

Is this possible?

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

This is for controlling more then two tables:

<html>
<head>
<title></title>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
<script type="text/javascript">
<!--
var aId = ["C1", "C2", "C3", "C4"];
function colorMe(theObj){
  for(i=0;i<aId.length;i++){
    document.getElementById(aId[i]).style.backgroundColor='';
    document.getElementById(aId[i]).style.color='';
    document.getElementById("d"+aId[i]).style.display='none';
  }
  theObj.style.backgroundColor='red';
  theObj.style.color='yellow';
  document.getElementById("d"+theObj.id).style.display='block';
 
}
   
// -->
</script>
</head>
<body>
<table width="100%" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">
 <tr>
   <td id="C1" onclick="colorMe(this)">TEST</td>
   <td id="C2" onclick="colorMe(this)">TEST 2</td>
   <td id="C3" onclick="colorMe(this)">TEST 3</td>

Try this it works on tables of any sizes

<table width="200" id="tab1">
  <tr>
    <td bgcolor="blue">f</td>
   <td bgcolor="pink">a</td>
   <td>b</td>
  </tr>
  <tr>
    <td bgcolor="red">f</td>
    <td>c</td>
    <td bgcolor="purple">d</td>
  </tr>
  <tr>
    <td bgcolor="blue">f</td>
    <td>a</td>
    <td>b</td>
  </tr>
</table>

<p><br>
</p>

<table id="tab2" width="200">
  <tr>
    <td bgcolor="orange">f</td>
    <td bgcolor="green"></td>
    <td>a</td>
  </tr>
  <tr>
    <td bgcolor="blue">f</td>
    <td>a</td>
    <td>b</td>
  </tr>
  <tr>
    <td bgcolor="red">c</td>
    <td bgcolor="orange">c</td>
    <td bgcolor="green">d</td>
  </tr>
</table>
<a href="#" onClick="swap('tab1','tab2',3,3)">

<p>Swap Colors</a>
 <script>
function swap(tab1,tab2,cols,rows){
for (i=0;i<cols;i++)
  for (j=0;j<rows;j++)
    {c1=document.getElementById(tab1).rows[i].cells[j].bgColor
    c2=document.getElementById(tab2).rows[i].cells[j].bgColor
    document.getElementById(tab2).rows[i].cells[j].bgColor =c1
    document.getElementById(tab1).rows[i].cells[j].bgColor =c2
   
    }
}

If you want the second table to be invisible then do this

<div  style="display:none">
<table width="200" id="tab1">
  <tr>
    <td bgcolor="blue">f</td><td bgcolor="pink">a</td><td>b</td>
  </tr>
  <tr>
    <td bgcolor="red">f</td><td>c</td><td bgcolor="purple">d</td>
  </tr>
  <tr>
    <td bgcolor="blue">f</td><td>a</td>  <td>b</td>
  </tr>
</table>
</div>
<table id="tab2" width="200" border=1>
  <tr>
    <td bgcolor="orange">f</td> <td bgcolor="green"></td> <td>a</td>
  </tr>
  <tr>
    <td bgcolor="blue">f</td> <td>a</td> <td>b</td>
  </tr>
  <tr>
    <td bgcolor="red">c</td><td bgcolor="orange">c</td><td bgcolor="green">d</td>
    </tr>
</table>
<a href="#" onClick="swap('tab1','tab2',3,3)">

<p>Swap Colors</a>
 <script>
function swap(tab1,tab2,cols,rows){
for (i=0;i<cols;i++)
  for (j=0;j<rows;j++)
    {c1=document.getElementById(tab1).rows[i].cells[j].bgColor
    c2=document.getElementById(tab2).rows[i].cells[j].bgColor
    document.getElementById(tab2).rows[i].cells[j].bgColor =c1
    document.getElementById(tab1).rows[i].cells[j].bgColor =c2  
    }
}

This will also swap the HTML content of the cells,

<div  style="display:none">
<table width="600" id="tab1" border=1 cellpaddding="6">
  <tr width="200">
    <td bgcolor="blue">AAAAA</td><td bgcolor="pink">XXX</td><td>BBB</td>
  </tr>
  <tr width="200">
    <td bgcolor="red">BBBB</td><td>BEER!</td><td bgcolor="purple">d</td>
  </tr>
  <tr width="200">
    <td bgcolor="blue">f</td><td>YAWN</td>  <td>BEER!</td>
  </tr>
</table>
</div>
<table id="tab2" width="600" border=1 cellpaddding="6">
  <tr width="200">
    <td bgcolor="orange">ffff</td> <td bgcolor="green"></td> <td>Time for Bed</td>
  </tr>
  <tr width="200">
    <td bgcolor="blue">I am tired</td> <td>a</td> <td>ZZZzzzzz</td>
  </tr>
  <tr width="200">
    <td bgcolor="red">c</td><td bgcolor="orange">I like wine</td><td bgcolor="green">d</td>
    </tr>
</table>
<a href="#" onClick="swap('tab1','tab2',3,3)">

 <script>
function swap(tab1,tab2,cols,rows){

    {c1=document.getElementById(tab1).rows[i].cells[j].bgColor
    c2=document.getElementById(tab2).rows[i].cells[j].bgColor
    document.getElementById(tab2).rows[i].cells[j].bgColor =c1
    document.getElementById(tab1).rows[i].cells[j].bgColor =c2
    h1=document.getElementById(tab1).rows[i].cells[j].innerHTML
