Hello everyone.
I am new to this forum. i am stuck on this problem for quite some time and i hope i cud use some ur expertise on it !!!
here's the thing -
i have developed this web page which is like really long and i have divided it into pages ( sort of virtual ) using java script. Now each (of the virtual) page is linked to a tab. so when a particular tab is clicked the corresponding page is displayed. I had to do this cos the data is interlinked and hence i cant divide the page into different html files
The problem is that i now want to add drop downmenu's to the tab such that when any tab is clicked a menu is displayed and when someone clicks a title in that menu the corresponding page be displayed

i hope u have understood my problem
i am attaching a sample of the tabs .. if anyone wud like to see the actual page do let me know i'll upload it too

thanks in advance !!!

sorry i didnt know i have to put the code anyways ...here's the javascript

// <script>



// ----- Auxiliary -------------------------------------------------------------


function tabview_aux(TabViewId, id)
{
var TabView = document.getElementById(TabViewId);


// ----- Tabs -----


var Tabs = TabView.firstChild;
while (Tabs.className != "Tabs" ) Tabs = Tabs.nextSibling;


var Tab = Tabs.firstChild;
var i   = 0;


do
{
if (Tab.tagName == "A")
{
i++;
Tab.href      = "javascript:tabview_switch('"+TabViewId+"', "+i+");";
Tab.className = (i == id) ? "Active" : "";
Tab.blur();
}
}
while (Tab = Tab.nextSibling);


// ----- Pages -----


var Pages = TabView.firstChild;
while (Pages.className != 'Pages') Pages = Pages.nextSibling;


var Page = Pages.firstChild;
var i    = 0;


do
{
if (Page.className == 'Page')
{
i++;
if (Pages.offsetHeight) Page.style.height = (Pages.offsetHeight-2)+"px";
Page.style.overflow = "auto";
Page.style.display  = (i == id) ? 'block' : 'none';
}
}
while (Page = Page.nextSibling);
}


// ----- Functions -------------------------------------------------------------


function tabview_switch(TabViewId, id) { tabview_aux(TabViewId, id); }
