1. Define buttons to trigger the expend or collapse commend.

2. Name a block of code (object) which will be expended or collapsed. In this example, it is:

  <div id=xWinBody2> 

3. At run time, this block can be displayed or hided by changing the display style to "display.none", or "". The JavaScript code is:

//IE only, id is varible
function ExpandCollapse(e)
	if (e.style.display == "")
		e.style.display = "none";
		e.style.display = "";

Hide is equivalent to html syntax

  <div id=xWinBody2 style="DISPLAY:none" >
