Hi- I'm a javascript novice having some success using the animated collapse function (link attached in Code section) which is based on  jquery.min javascript.

Now I need to trigger the collapsing divs from a drop down (select) list and not a link or a button.

How can I use a drop down list to trigger the animatedcollapse function?

Thanks,

// heres what the call to the function looks like:

animatedcollapse.addDiv('divName', 'fade=1,speed=500,group=divGroupName, hide=1')

Open in new window

Call the function from the onChange event of the dropdown.

So you'd have something like the following:

<select ... OnChange="animatedcollapse.addDiv('divName', 'fade=1,speed=500,group=divGroupName, hide=1');">
...
</select>
