Hello..

Hope all are well..

Hmm, I'm not sure I'm using the right terminology, have searched endlessly online to no avail..

I want to have a list on the left hand side of a table, so that when each topic is clicked the text for that topic appears in the right hand side of the table.. feels like it should be easy enough :/

Does anyone know what method would work to make this happen..? My coding abilities are infantile :/

Many thanks in advance

I think if you are prepared to use divs rather than tables then you can use the 'show/hide' behviours in DW for this. Otherwise look at Jquery options; http://www.learningjquery.com/2006/09/slicker-show-and-hide

This is very easy to do with jQuery, but you would really need to do things properly with and not use the table.

Have a look at this tutorial this is essentially the same as what you want to do just style it as you want.

This is very easy to follow and adapt.

Come back to us if you need any further help with it.
