I was happy to see the Show/Hide widget in the RH 2015 Azure Blue layout. I assume it invokes the expansion/collapse of the DHTML content on a page. However, I have not successfully implemented it! What is the correct procedure?

  1. Edit the Topic (Default)] in the Azure Blue layout.
  2. Select one of the Text Box divs  (This is probably the issue. Where should the widget be inserted?)
  3. Select 'Dual State Show/Hide' from the widgets menu.
  4. Save the project and generate the Responsive HTML5 output. it is unsuccessful.

One of two things happens:  Either Help system will not launch--the loading graphic does an endless loop, or the system launches with a damaged TOC. For example, the TOC only shows the content icons/no text.

Thanks in advance for any assistance!

So that's how you view me Rick The expand/collapse I originally created was broken with the RH11.0.3. updated. It is still on my backlog to create an update for that. Just haven't come around it.

Hi there

What browser are you using? Perhaps it's an issue with the browser?

Cheers... Rick

Hi Rick,

Thx for the quick input. It's IE 10, and I get the same results with Chrome.

I'm looking for a way to give the use an option expand/collapse all DHTML in a topic. I'm beginning to think the Show/Hide widget has a different purpose.

Hmmm, this sounds like you are mucking about with the pages that layout the screen. Not unlike taking apart the turbo for a Lamborghini as far as I'm concerned. You need someone to pop in that understands the way this stuff is all laid out. Someone like Willam van Weelden‌.

Perhaps by tagging him he will take note of this thread and pop in with some sage advice such as: Just nudge the kalamafludge 3cm using the whosamagotchi tool, then feed that through the permutator and you should be set! Easy Peasy It's all right there in Paragraph 4 subsection C of the W3C CSS3 specification of the DOM structure!

Cheers... Rick

Rick, thank you for definitely lightening things up! And thanks for tagging WillamVW. He has made expand/collapse widgets for me in the past and he's definitely the man on this Lamborghini stuff! I look forward to Willam's help.
