Hi, I have a page where i want jquery to toggle multiple dropdown boxes eg;

Button1 - toggles contentbox1
Button2 - toggles contentbox2
Button3 - toggles contentbox3

<a href="#"  id="button1">One</a>
<a href="#"  id="button2">Two</a>
<a href="#"  id="button3">Three</a>

<div id="contentbox1" style="display: none;">content box one</div>
<div id="contentbox2" style="display: none;">content box two</div>
<div id="contentbox3" style="display: none;">content box three</div>

Open in new window

        }, function(){

Open in new window

How would I use this same function to slide up and down different boxes with different buttons instead of duplicating the code for each button/contentbox.
...and when a box is down and I click a button to drop another box  ...how do I make the box that is already down slide up first?
