Hi Guys,

I am wanting to slide the internal contents horizontally of a div via a href links.
I have coded the beginning of what I want to do but can't find the exact answer on the web to complete.

Looking at the code:
If i was to click on 'Slide to Area B' i would like the div 'inner-container' to slide to the left and to have the 2nd area (areaB) to align up with the beginning of 'inner-container'.  And when i click on 'Slide to Area A'  for it to slide back.

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
<style>
body {
	margin-left: 0px;
	margin-top: 0px;
	margin-right: 0px;
	margin-bottom: 0px;
	overflow-x: hidden;
}
#container {
	position:absolute;
	top: 100px;
	left: 100px;
}
#inner-container {
	position:relative;
	width: 4000px;
	height: 300px;
	background-color:#CCCCCC;
}
#areaA {
	position:absolute;
	top: 0;
	left: 0;
	width: 300px;
	height: 300px;
	background-color:#0033FF;
} 
#areaB {
	position:absolute;
	top: 0;
	left: 300px;
	width: 300px;
	height: 300px;
	background-color:#FF0000;
} 
#nav {
	position:absolute;
	top: 430px;
	left: 100px;
}
</style>
</head>
<body>

<div id="container">
	<div id="inner-container">
  	<div id="areaA">Content A</div>
    <div id="areaB">Content B</div>
  </div>
</div>

<div id="nav">
	<div><a href="#">Slide to Area A</a></div>
	<div><a href="#">Slide to Area B</a></div>
</div>

</body>
</html>

Also if i was to load the page with #areaA at the end of the URL for it to show that part of the inner-container DIV.

I'm sure jQuery can do it, or some sort of Javascript.

Hope someone can show me an answer.
Thanks

From reading your description, I'm guessing this?:
<html>
    <head>
        <title>test</title>
        <script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.4.2/jquery.min.js"></script>
<style>
body {
	margin-left: 0px;
	margin-top: 0px;
	margin-right: 0px;
	margin-bottom: 0px;
	overflow-x: hidden;
}
#container {
	position:absolute;
	top: 100px;
	left: 100px;
}
#inner-container {
	position:relative;
	width: 4000px;
	height: 300px;
	background-color:#CCCCCC;
}
#areaA {
	position:absolute;
	top: 0;
	left: 0;
	width: 300px;
	height: 300px;
	background-color:#0033FF;
}
#areaB {
	position:absolute;
	top: 0;
	left: 300px;
	width: 300px;
	height: 300px;
	background-color:#FF0000;
}
#nav {
	position:absolute;
	top: 430px;
	left: 100px;
}
</style>
        <script type="text/javascript">
          $(function(){
              $("#s2b").click(function(){
                  $("#container").animate({
                      left:'-=75'
                  },2500,function(){})
                  
                     $("#areaB").animate({
                      left:'-=300'
                  },2500,function(){})

              })
              $("#s2a").click(function(){
                  $("#container").animate({
                      left:'+=75'
                  },2500,function(){})

                     $("#areaB").animate({
                      left:'+=300'
                  },2500,function(){})

              })})
         
        </script>
    </head>
    <body>
        <div id="container">
            <div id="inner-container">

            <div><a href="#" id="s2b">Slide to Area B</a></div>
        </div>
    </body>
</html>

Here are two methods that might get you close, but need development to fit your needs.
