Hi All,

From the image below, when a link on the left side is clicked on, it filters the list on the right side.

What I want to happen is for the link that is clicked on to stay selected.  How can I do that?

Here's my code that I have so far:
<TABLE style="WIDTH: 50%">

If you want the link to stay selected (using your current code) you will need to do something like this:

give the <a> tags an id.  (eg:  <a ..... id="link1"> )

It's a bit tricky for me to understand exactly what you are trying to do, but to select the link, you can use jquery to do:

$('#link1').setFocus(); and this  would setfocus (select) the link in question.

Thanks!

For a better explanation, here's an example:

Let's say I have the links below, if the user clicks Link B, I want it to be selected until another link is selected.  So if they selected Link A, Link B won't be bold and underlined anymore but Link A will.

Link A
Link B
Link C

Hope that makes sense.  I will give what you have a try though.

Thanks again!

What you describe here can be accomplished with css.

Assuming all of your links are of the class="mylinks" then in your stylesheet.css:

.mylinks {text-decoration: none; font-weight: 300; }
.mylinks:active { text-decoration: underline; font-weight: 800; }

So, I found this piece of code,

http://jsfiddle.net/VtWxF/6/

I set it up in SharePoint 2007 web part page and the problem is that when I click on the link,  it does not work.  As you can see from my initial code above, the page redirects to itself and the page refreshes.

Any ideas how to resolve this?

Thanks!

I found a solution.

I created an html navigation and added it to a CEWP.
For the navigation, I used the links already created from the web part connection.

All I did was just added an "ALL" and the link to resolve my issue.

<li class="all">
  <a href="javascript:SelectField('{41FEC1E4-8908-4089-9EBC-CA6E3ABB1A2A}','1');return false;" class="menu" onclick="javascript:SelectField('{41FEC1E4-8908-4089-9EBC-CA6E3ABB1A2A}','1');return false;" target="_self">ALL</A>
</li>
<li class="aetc">
