View Full Version : Really Really simple question

13 Feb 2007, 6:50 AM

I'm very new to all this YUI stuff. I am using Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 connecting to a Lotus Notes Database for the data. Everything is going ok....but what I want to do is really simple.

In my west panel, I would like to have a series of links. when I click one of the links i would like it to open an ASP page in a new tab in the centre region.

ANyone have any ideas as how to do this?

Thanks very much.

does this help anyone help me? :

In a Domino Form the syntax would be :

$about','About')">About (#)

I suggest you start looking at the examples. There are numerous examples of hooking a click event to something an driving other UI things e.g. opening a panel.

I have had a look at the examples, but cannot see an HTML link which opens in another panel.

If you can point me in the right direction, that would be great.

My closable attribute is set to false so you can't close me. The other center panels can be closed.</p>

The center panel automatically grows to fit the remaining space in the container that isn't taken up by the border regions.</p>

What is not working?

Try adding the following function to your Example class:

addTab: function(header, content)
var el = YAHOO.ext.DomHelper.append(document.body, {tag:'div', id:header, html:content);
layout.add('west', new YAHOO.ext.ContentPanel(el, {title:header, closable: true}));
