hi all,
i want a different views to display my products for users like in this site http://www.naaptol.com in this site user can see different views like grid view,consise view and list view and also the page displays very quickely in this site,how can i acheive this if i use like hide/show div tags the page gets too long to display becoz i must use 3 while loops for different views
any way i can acheive using only one while loop

thank u

This isnt really php necessary. It should be done using CSS's unorder list (<ul></ul>).
There are many tutorials if you search stuff like "drop down menu css" on google. Take a look

Hope this helps

i think this can be done with show/hide divs or ul
but the products are dynamic and we need to loop for list view style and another loop for grid view like this

<table width="100%" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0">
