So I am making a website, and I want to make the yellow bar to the left expand when one of the links to the left are clicked (yes there is only one link there now, more will come). Heres how the site looks now:

I want the yellow bar to expand, and then show text on it. I have only a little experience in flash/java/dreamweaver. Anyone know how to create this? Does anyone have a tutorial for this?

Hi (and welcome to DWC)

Have you checked out www.jquery.com ? It is a great javascript franework and will probably have a plug-in which will suit your needs.

Are you creating this in Flash or Dreamweaver?

Im creating this in Dreamweaver.

I think I found a plugin at jQuery, but I have no idea how to use it and I couldnt find a preview so I am not really sure how it looks.

Would it be easier to create it in Flash?

Download jQuery, read the instructions and implement. :) They actually made it quite easy.
