Hi,
Try this,

<html>
<script laguage="javascript">
function hideShowSect(obj){
    if(obj.style.display == ''){
        obj.style.display = 'none';
    }else{
        obj.style.display = '';
    }
}
</script>
  <body>
    <table>
      <tr>
        <td>header 1</td>
        <td onclick="hideShowSect(section1)">header 2</td>
        <td>header 3</td>
      </tr>
      <tr id="section1">
        <td>
          <table>
            <tr>
              <td>item 1</td>
            </tr>
            <tr>
              <td>item 2</td>
            </tr>
          </table>
      </tr>
    </table>
  </body>
</html>

you can hide and show any item. But without any sliding effect. For sliding effect you will need to use CSS transition effect.

I have adapted the script into this but if i try to apply the hide/show function to more then one row, i tried to add the id="section1" to more then one row but the script does not run. :(

Any ideas? I thought about having a table inside the row/cell but this is not an option. GRR

Here is the code

<html>
<script laguage="javascript">
function hideShowSect(obj){
    if(obj.style.display == ''){
        obj.style.display = 'none';
    }else{
        obj.style.display = '';
    }
}
</script>
  <body>
<table width="300" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">
  <tr   >
    <td onclick="hideShowSect(section1)" bgcolor="#6699CC">USERNAME</td>
    <td bgcolor="#6699CC">WILLA666</td>
    <td>&nbsp;</td>
  </tr>
  <tr id="section1">
    <td bgcolor="#CC99FF">ROW 1</td>
    <td bgcolor="#CC99FF">&nbsp;</td>
    <td>&nbsp;</td>
  </tr>
  <tr
    <td bgcolor="#CC99FF">ROW 2</td>
    <td bgcolor="#CC99FF">&nbsp;</td>
    <td>&nbsp;</td>
  </tr>
  <tr>
    <td bgcolor="#CC99FF">ROW 3</td>
    <td bgcolor="#CC99FF">&nbsp;</td>
    <td>&nbsp;</td>
  </tr>
</table>

</body>
</html>

hi willa,

  try putting your tables in this way,

<table width="300" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">
  <tr>
    <td onclick="hideShowSect(section1)" bgcolor="#6699CC">USERNAME</td>
    <td bgcolor="#6699CC">WILLA666</td>
    <td>&nbsp;</td>
  </tr>
    <tr id="section1">
        <td>
          <table>  <!--content for first section-->
              <tr >
                  <td bgcolor="#CC99FF">ROW 1</td>
                  <td bgcolor="#CC99FF">&nbsp;</td>
                  <td>&nbsp;</td>
                </tr>
                <tr>
                  <td bgcolor="#CC99FF">ROW 2</td>
                  <td bgcolor="#CC99FF">&nbsp;</td>
                  <td>&nbsp;</td>
                </tr>
                <tr>
                  <td bgcolor="#CC99FF">ROW 3</td>
                  <td bgcolor="#CC99FF">&nbsp;</td>
                  <td>&nbsp;</td>
                </tr>
          </table>
        </td>
     </tr>
     <tr>
       <td onclick="hideShowSect(section2)" bgcolor="#6699CC">Section 2</td>
       <td bgcolor="#6699CC">section 2 description....</td>
       <td>&nbsp;</td>
     </tr>
       <tr id="section2">
           <td>
             <table>  <!--content for second section-->
                 <tr >
                     <td bgcolor="#CC99FF">ROW 1</td>
                     <td bgcolor="#CC99FF">&nbsp;</td>
                     <td>&nbsp;</td>
                   </tr>
                   <tr>
                     <td bgcolor="#CC99FF">ROW 2</td>
                     <td bgcolor="#CC99FF">&nbsp;</td>
                     <td>&nbsp;</td>
                   </tr>
                   <tr>
                     <td bgcolor="#CC99FF">ROW 3</td>
                     <td bgcolor="#CC99FF">&nbsp;</td>
                     <td>&nbsp;</td>
                   </tr>
             </table>
           </td>
        </tr>
.... ....
</table>


Try putting all your contents for the section in at table within a cell, like what is show up there. FYI, id must be unique. you cannot name the id as the same more than once in a HTML page.

But if you don't want to put a table within a cell you may want to try this,

<table width="300" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">
  <tr   >
    <td onclick="hideShowSect(part1);hideShowSect(part2);hideShowSect(part3);"
                     bgcolor="#6699CC">  USERNAME</td>
    <td bgcolor="#6699CC">WILLA666</td>
    <td>&nbsp;</td>
  </tr>
  <tr id="part1">
    <td bgcolor="#CC99FF">ROW 1</td>
    <td bgcolor="#CC99FF">&nbsp;</td>
    <td>&nbsp;</td>
  </tr>
  <tr id="part2">
    <td bgcolor="#CC99FF">ROW 2</td>
    <td bgcolor="#CC99FF">&nbsp;</td>
    <td>&nbsp;</td>
  </tr>
  <tr id="part3">
    <td bgcolor="#CC99FF">ROW 3</td>
    <td bgcolor="#CC99FF">&nbsp;</td>
    <td>&nbsp;</td>
  </tr>
</table>

happy trying ;-)

hi willa666,

you can putting something like this,
...
 <tr id="part2" style='display:none'>
    <td bgcolor="#CC99FF">ROW 2</td>
    <td bgcolor="#CC99FF">&nbsp;</td>
    <td>&nbsp;</td>
  </tr>
...

or you can call the function during onload something like this

<body onload='hideShowSect(part1)'>

see which one suits you...

happy coding,

regards,
sunmaster
