Expand Your Categories In A New Way

On the web, I has always bothered me that I had to use the twisties in order to
expand or collapse categories. So by using CSS, I now can click on a hole bar
or any other image for that mather.
Define your style in the field $$HTMLHead on your $$Viewtemplate form like this:
"&LTSTYLE>"+
"DIV.viewlayer"+
"{"+
" position:absolute; "+
" width:525px; "+
" height:12px; "+
" background-color:#f1f1b4;"+
" font-size:10pt;"+
" color:navy; "+
" cursor:hand;"+
" text-decoration:none;"+
"}"+
"</STYLE>"

(adjust to your own positions)

In the categorized column formula, put this in:
"[&LTA HREF=\"MyViewName?OpenView&Expand=" + @DocNumber + "\">&LTdiv
title=\"Document Type. Click here to expand\" class=\"viewlayer\">" +
DocumentType + "</A></div>]"

The title attrib. only goes for IE and is ignored in Netscape.

You can add a new div layer for your collapse.
