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?

Try this it works on tables of any sizes

  <tr>
    <td bgcolor="blue">f</td>
    <td>a</td>
    <td>b</td>
  </tr>
</table>

<p><br>

<table id="tab2" width="200">

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>

  <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>
    <td bgcolor="blue">f</td> <td>a</td> <td>b</td>
