When I click on a link I am trying to get a div to enlarge.  The div is called "sidebox".  The website is www.mediascrubber.com  The div is the white box with the grey line around it.

<ul id="bars">
		<li><a href="#!/page_One">One</a><!-- Begin One -->
    	<li id="page_One">
			<div id="sidebox" class="sidebig">
			</div>
		</li>
    	</li><!-- End One -->
	</ul>

Open in new window


I want it to work like www.legalzoom.com

This is based no jquery - I'm sure you can easily adapt it to your particular code
http://jsfiddle.net/GaryC123/6adEM/1/

HTML
<div id="container">
    <div class="buttons">
    <button id="but1">button 1</button>
    <button id="but2">button 1</button>
    </div>
    <div class="content">
    <span class="but1">some text</span>
    <span class="but2">some other text</span>
    </div>
</div>

Open in new window

CSS
#container {
    height:100px;
    width:100px;
    overflow:hidden;
    border:1px solid green
}
.buttons {
    width:90px;display:inline:block;float:left
}
.content span{
    width:90px;
    display:inline-block;
    float:left;
    display:none
}

Open in new window

JQUERY
$("#container").mouseenter(function(){
        $(this).animate({width: '200px'});
})
$("#container").mouseleave(function(){
        $(this).animate({width: '100px'});
})
$(".buttons button").hover(function(){
  $(".content ."+$(this).attr("id")).toggle()  
})

Your example works great.  Mine doesn't.  I copied all of the code and it doesn't seem to work.  Could it be my jquery version?

<script type="text/javascript" src="js/jquery-1.7.2.min.js" ></script>
<script>
		$("#container").mouseenter(function(){
        $(this).animate({width: '200px'});
		})
		$("#container").mouseleave(function(){
        $(this).animate({width: '100px'});
		})
		$(".buttons button").hover(function(){
  		$(".content ."+$(this).attr("id")).toggle()  
		})
</script>

Wrap your script in

$(function() {
...
})

Open in new window

So it doesn't fire until the page has loaded and the elements exist, at the mo you have it before the html so they don't actually exist when the js is fired.
