JQUERY UI Accordion issue

Hello,

I am trying to use the JQuery Accordion and I can't seem to get it to work properly with the HTML which I *think* is correct.  HTML is here.  Instead of two accordion panels "Section 1" and "Section 2", I get 3 panels.  I think all the "divs" are closed so I can't figure out why this isn't displaying properly.

Thanks for any help!

Cheers,

<h3> Section1</h3>
<div>
  <div>
    <div style='width:100%; overflow:hidden;'>
      <div id='myPic-0-0' style='width:50px; height:50px;  float:left; '></div>

Where is the exact problem it may be in your script?? You have separate sections in div only.

I can't use double quotes because it is built and inserted appended to the "accordion" div via jquery append.

The HTML shows up as it should but instead of just 2 panels, there are 3.  One panel stops after the date and before the div with "OK, we got it." and then the next panel stops AFTER the h3 "Section 2".  The 3rd panel starts with the divider line and includes the two comments.

The HTML I pasted is an echo of the HTML just before it is appended to the div with Jquery append and before the accordion is initialized with $("#accordion").accordion();

You have

$("#accordion").accordion();

But in your code you don't show the id="accordion" element.

Also can you show the JQuery that you are using to initialise.

Or a link to the problem.

Posting some of the code does not help us if that is not where the problem is.

Here is a snippet of the code--would this be enough?

if(what==1){
	
	myHTML = "<div id='accordion'></div>";
	$("#fifth").append (myHTML);
	myHTML = "";
	myHTML1 = "";
	
	
	$.getJSON(url, function(result){
		
		
		for (var i = 0; i < result.data.length; i++) { 
		
			for (var j = 0; j < result.data[i].Messages.length; j++) { 
					var myAvatarLink = "http://www.mywebsite.com/UserAvatars/"+result.data[i].Messages[j].avatar;
					
					var myComment = result.data[i].Messages[j].message;
					var myDate = result.data[i].Messages[j].msgDate;
					if (j==0) {
						//myHTML="<h3> Section1</h3><div>";
						if(i==0){
							
							myHTML = "<h3> Section1</h3><div><div><div style='width:100%; overflow:hidden;'><div id='myPic-"+ i + '-'  +j+"' style='width:50px; height:50px;  float:left; '></div><div style='margin-left:65px; margin-top:0px;width:500px; text-align:left; font-family:Verdana, Geneva, sans-serif; padding-left:5px; font-size:12px;'>"+myComment+"</div></div><div style='width:100%; overflow:hidden;'></div><div style='width:100%; overflow:hidden;'><div style='width:60px; height:10px;  float:left;'></div><div style='margin-left:65px; margin-top:0px;width:500px; text-align:left; font-family:Verdana, Geneva, sans-serif; padding-left:5px; color:#666; font-style:italic; font-size:10px;padding-left:5px;'>"+myDate+"</div></div><div style='width:100%; overflow:hidden;'><div style='width:60px; height:10px;  float:left;'></div><div style='height:30px;'></div>";

Wrapping your original post in <div id="accordian"> and binding JQueryUI accordian to this seems to work - only shows two items

Do you have a link we can look at - a link?

Hello,

I solved the issue.  It had to do with appending the images in the HTML.  I don't know exactly why this caused problems but once I changed the way this was done, it works.

Thanks so much!

Cheers!
