I'm trying to get the jquery style accordian option to work inside an html table.  I have 2 header rows that won't change and then I have a dynamic html table that gets built. I have included some html code and javascript code I have as an example:

This is the output example
I would like to be able to hide/show first 2 rows after 'This is the header' is clicked and show/hide 3 rows after 'This is another header' is clicked

Main Header                              // static first header
header 1      header 2      header 3    // static second header
This is the header                      // first accordian header              
Research      Description      Partner
Research      Description      Partner
This is the another header         // second accordian header
Research_2      Description_2      Partner_2
Research_2      Description_2      Partner_2
Research_2      Description_2      Partner_2

<table class="research">
    <tbody>
        
        <tr><td colspan="3">Main Header</td></tr>
        <tr><td>header 1</td><td>header 2</td><td>header 3</td></tr>               
        
        <tr class="accordion">
            <td colspan="3">This is the header</td>
        </tr>
        <tr>
            <td>Research</td>
            <td>Description</td>
            <td>Partner</td>
        </tr>
        <tr>
            <td>Research</td>
            <td>Description</td>
            <td>Partner</td>
        </tr>  
        
        
        <tr class="accordion">
            <td colspan="3">This is another header</td>
        </tr>
        <tr>
            <td>Research_2</td>
            <td>Description_2</td>
            <td>Partner_2</td>
        </tr>
        <tr>
            <td>Research_2</td>
            <td>Description_2</td>
            <td>Partner_2</td>
        </tr>        
        <tr>
            <td>Research_2</td>
            <td>Description_2</td>
            <td>Partner_2</td>
        </tr>        

    </tbody>
</table>

$(function() {
    var $research = $('.research');
    $research.find("tr").not('.accordion').hide();
    $research.find("tr").eq(0).show();
    
    $research.find(".accordion").click(function(){
        $(this).siblings("tr").fadeToggle(500);
    }).eq(0).trigger('click');
});

Is there any way to default the tabs to close when the page opens and have the user choose to open up a tab.  Sorry for asking after I closed the question.....

Yes this is possible:

just add below line in document.ready event

$('#table1 tr.accordion:eq(1)').nextUntil('tr.accordion').hide();

This will hide second content panel on page load.
you can change this index from 1 to 0 (zero).

Hope this helps you.
