call Anchor tag in the same page

Posted on 2014-09-02

I have a web page which has grid and below there is details section.
User can select one record in the grid and details section fills up with its details.

Now the issue is Grid can have any no of rows so currently when user selects one record, he has to scroll the page down to reach the details section.

I am thinking of putting some tag at the detail section and when user selects a record then using javascript or jquery I call some method and reach of this tag.
Vice versa for reaching to the top (or to the selected record in the grid)

I need would it be possible to do?

You can do it in many ways. but I found two ways better for user experience.

1. You can put one container with some specified height to your grid and apply scrolling functionality to this container. As a result if records goes further that specified height then automatically scroll will come and your details section will not get disturbed.

2. Another way is you can add simple link for each row in grid and instead of displaying details in details section you can show details in popup in JavaScript or jQuery.

Hope this helps you.
