Collapse an Element


Recommended Posts

I'm trying to make an element on my site where a visitor can click close and it collapses completely, and all the content on the page is shifted upwards with everything. So its pretty much taken out. How do I make this happen without refreshing the page. A good example is gamespot.com . Their ad. is collapsable.


Thanks in advance!

I use this code

Javascript code:

function switchMenu(obj,objtext) {
var el = document.getElementById(obj);
if ( el.style.display != 'none' ) {
el.style.display = 'none';
else {
el.style.display = '';


HTML Code:

<div onclick="switchMenu('crush1','crushtext1')" class="label">Movies <span id="crushtext1"><script type="text/javascript"><!--

	<ul class="block" id="crush1">

CSS works on all new browsers, and is even supported by some screen readers and stuff, where as javascript is only supported by a few, and is often disabled since usually it's just used for annoying the user (making popups and stuff).

not all css works on all browsers!!!


ie6 only supports :hover on the a tag! So in this situation the method that should be adopted to provide the desired DOCUMENT EFFECT is to use javascript.


Javascript should initially collapse all elements that you want to hide and then toggel their display on click. That way clients with js off / not supported will simple show all the elments. Only when javascript is available will the toggle be available.

Fire fox is not fully standards compliant - even AMAYA is not fully standards compliant...


Please Azu - don't post things that are either plain wrong or don't actually have any bearing on the solution to the problem.
