Hi,

I want to create an expandable and collapsible menu (similar to this one on the left side of page for IBM DB2 documentation: http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/db2luw/v8/index.jsp?topic=/com.ibm.db2.udb.doc/core/c0011568.htm%22)

I know it is possible using technologies like Javascript, but it would be to know if it would be possible to create something similar to this using PL/SQL or something similar.

Not 100% sure if this is the right forum to be posting in, but I hope you can help all the same!

PL/SQL has NO interaction with the end-user, so creating a menu in PL/SQL makes no sense.
With PL/SQL however, one can create stuff that is presented to the end-user (for example using htp, or APEX).
Since the functionality of the different options varies so much, we need to know more about your environment. Do you (plan to) use APEX, or something else?

Bottomline _will_ probably be that you need to code it in JS anyway.

I would be using htp.
I'm still a bit of a beginner, and I don't know what APEX is, or if it is available to me.
I would prefer to stay away from JS, but if it comes to it then I guess I don't really have a choice

The main thing htp does is generate html.
If you want dynamic html, you'd have to first see what you want your page(-source!) to look like, and then use the htp-package to generate that..
No fancy stuff in there, as far as I know.

As you have raised this topic in the Forms section.

The answer is YES you can by using Oracle Forms. Search for 'Hierarchy Trees' in this section. You will find it.

Best Regards,

But that does not use htp, now does it?
