Team,
I want to perform 2 separate actions.
1. expand n collapse a  table rows
2. expand a row in a table

I have the below script that works perfectly for expanding all rows at a time.
click on the div tag:
<div class="txtr mb">
 <a href="javascript:void(0)" class="jq-expand-all-new addLink" onclick="onExpandAll();">
  <span class="icon"></span>
  <span>Expand All</span>
</a>
</div>


table:
<table>
<th>
</th>
<tbody>
<tr>
<td>
<div id="plan${count.count}" class="hd">
<a class="collapsed rel" href="javascript:void(0);"><span class="icon"> </span>
${plan.description}&#9;  
</a>
</div>
</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>
&#9;<table>
&#9;<tbody>
&#9;<tr>
&#9;&#9;<td>
&#9;&#9;</td>
&#9;</tr>
&#9;<tr>
&#9;&#9;<td>
&#9;&#9;</td>
&#9;</tr>
&#9;<tr>
&#9;&#9;<td>
&#9;&#9;</td>
&#9;</tr>
&#9;</tbody>
&#9;</table>
</td>
</tr>
</tbody>
</table>



function onExpandAll()
{
&#9;var $ele = $( '.jq-expand-all-new' );
&#9;// var $anccollapsed = $('#activelist').find('tbody tr td:first div.hd a');
&#9;if( $ele.hasClass( 'addLink' ) )
&#9;{
&#9;&#9;$( "#completeHistoryTable tr" ).each( function()
&#9;&#9;{
&#9;&#9;&#9;$( this ).find( 'td:first div.hd a' ).removeClass( 'collapsed' ).addClass( "expanded" );&#9;
&#9;&#9;&#9;$( this ).find( 'td:first div.hd a' ).closest( "tr" ).next().find( "td" ).removeClass( 'closed' );
&#9;&#9;} );
&#9;&#9;$ele.removeClass( 'addLink' ).addClass( 'minusLink' );
&#9;&#9;$ele.children( ':nth-child(2)' ).text( 'Collapse All' );
&#9;}
&#9;else if( $ele.hasClass( 'minusLink' ) )
&#9;{
&#9;&#9;$( "#completeHistoryTable tr" ).each( function()
&#9;&#9;{
&#9;&#9;&#9;$( this ).find( 'td:first div.hd a' ).removeClass( 'expanded' ).addClass( "collapsed" );
&#9;&#9;&#9;$( this ).find( 'td:first div.hd a' ).closest( "tr" ).next().find( "td" ).addClass( 'closed' );
&#9;&#9;} );
&#9;&#9;$ele.removeClass( 'minusLink' ).addClass( 'addLink' );

I have the below script that works perfectly for expanding all rows at a time.

If you say so. Kind of difficult to test without the css definitions for expanded, collapsed, addLink, minusLink, hd, closed, etc. The table has no content or classes so it has no height to expand into.

Assuming all this is in place, what will trigger the expanding of individual rows?

First you need to start with a proper table.  If you are generating this from php/asp then watch your code for building the table.  http://www.w3schools.com/html/html_tables.asp

Get all your tables correct.  Next use firebug or chrome/sarfari console to check for errors in your js.  Also paste your rendered html into http://validator.w3.org/#validate_by_input.   If after you find no errors in your js and good validation  and you still get errors, please give us a link to your page or post the rendered html, css and js and let's take a look.  

<table width="500">
  <tr>
    <th>This is a heading </th>
</tr>
  <tbody>
    <tr>
      <td><div id="plan${count.count}" class="hd"> <a class="collapsed rel" href="javascript:void(0);"><span class="icon"> </span> ${plan.description} </a> </div></td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
      <td><table>
          <tbody>
            <tr>
              <td>stuff</td>
            </tr>
            <tr>
              <td>stuff</td>
            </tr>
            <tr>
              <td>stuff</td>
            </tr>
          </tbody>
        </table></td>
    </tr>
  </tbody>
</table>

Hi there,
Thanks for your tip on validator check. my table structure got passed on W3c standards.
However there was a JS file import was missing as part of the check. The import was working fine with my local and dev stream was not working and later i fixed the relative path.

Thanks for your help.

Thanks Experts admin team for your support

Regards,
Easwar
