2 Scrollable divs

Hi Folks,

I was trying to create an app similar to USA Today app on honeycomb or CNBC App for the Ipad (just the news section) http://www.cnbc.com/id/35332013

Basically there will be 2 scrollable divs or something similar .

One Div on the left will be a scrollable menu  with some header,content,graphic. This mimics the page layout on the right where the content is in a HTML5 page.

So you would touch on the left and the related content loads on the right side of the tablet.

I am trying to find out what Framework to use. I am little bit familiar with jquery mobile and HTML5/CSS3

Thanks

RG

jQuery mobile should work just fine.

Make the div position:absolute; overflow:scroll and ajax content into the other div onclick
and you are set

How do i update this HTML page, so that the Jquery function gets called. Right now the HTML page slides from the right and overwrites the 2 links

</script>
</head>

<body>

<div id="leftdiv" style="position:absolute;padding-right:5%; overflow:scroll;">
<a href="te_01_01_0005.htm">Launch Index</a><BR />
<a href="te_01_01_0006.htm">Launch Page 1</a>

</div>

<div id="rightdiv" style="padding-left:30%">


</div>


</body>
</html>

Open in new window

I'll have a look
1)

$(document).ready(function() {
  $("#leftdiv a").on("click",function(e) {
    $("#rightDiv").load(this.href);
    return false; // I was sure preventDefault would work
  });
});

Open in new window


2) spelling:

<div id="rightDiv" style="padding-left:30%">
Here is the updated code, still does not show up in the right DIV, it just loads the page without calling the function
<code>

      alert("function called");

      return false;
  });
});
