passing parameters to jquery

I am trying to use the jquery toggle function to show/hide multiple div blocks that are generated dynamically using a coldfusion loop. Each div block would have a separate and unique id that is automatically generated. I want to be able to use one toggle function to toggle each  div block separately but do not know how to pass div id names to the function to show/hide a specific block. (if there is a better way to do this, please let me know also)

For the id in the attached code I just picked seeall10 and whatever10 as one of the dynamically generated div tags but I would need to replace that with some sort of passed parameter or variable so that all div tags would work.

Thank you!

you can try the following in jquery

$(function() {
$("p[id^='seeall']").click(function() {
   $(this).next("div").toggle();
});
});

This will solve your issue as this will bind your all  P tags with the id starting seeall.

Hope your problem has been fixed by the above code sample.
