Creating A Collapsible List
Once you have successfully created a multi-level list, you can then make that list collaspible. A collaspible list lets the site visitor show or hide different levels of the list by double-clicking an item. This function is neat, but only supported by MS Internet Explorer v4.0 or higher, or other web browsers that support Dynamic HTML such as Netscape v4.0 and higher.
- In Page View, select a multi-level list, then Right-Click, and select List Properties on the shortcut menu or.
- To set only one level in the list to be collaspible, select the items in the level below it, Right-Click, and then select List Properties on the shortcut menu. Then select the levels you want to be collaspible.
- Then select the Enable Collaspible Outlines check box on the tab that is displayed. (Note: If this option is not displayed, you have not selected all the items in the list or level.)
- If you selected the entire list, and if you want the list to be collasped when the page is first opened in a web browser, select the Initially Collasped check box.
To check out your collaspible lists, execute Preview mode to see how they work. You may also want to consider placing instructions on your web site of how to use these lists by simply clicking on the level above that is collaspible to expand or reduce the list of items.
