Spry VTabbed Panel Frustration

I cannot, for the life of me, get my Spry vertical tabbed panel to work! It should be a quick fix according to all the tutorials-- just change the class on the top level widget container element to "VTabbedPanels" instead of "TabbedPanels"...
When I do that, the Tabbed Panels Content Group moves over to the right creating space for the tabs to fit vertically, but the tabs remain along the top horizontally.
I've tried following the notes and instructions in the css style sheet but can't figure out how to get the tabs to stack on top of each other vertically!
The site is not published/public yet otherwise I would post a link...
I'd be thankful for any ideas!

Finally figured out how to stack the tabs on top of each other vertically, but now the content boxes aren't lining up next to the tabs. See attached screen shot. Help!

  • Modified Spry Tabbed Panels causing a bug in Dreaweaver.

    Whenever I try to edit a page with a spry tabbed panel in Dreamweaver, I get a spiraling pinwheel, then finally,  a popup window saying, "the file SpryTabbedPanelsDesignTime.js has been running a long time"  and I have to click "no" to continue, only to have the whole thing reoccur in a few seconds.
    I have modified the widget constructor, in order to link to secondary panels from another page, which all works perfectly. However it is frustrating to keep getting the error message as a result of this modification.
    <script type="text/javascript">
    <!-- var TabbedPanels1 = new Spry.Widget.TabbedPanels("TabbedPanels1", {defaultTab: (params.panel ? params.panel : 0)}); -->
    </script>
    I have seen the issue addressed in adobe forums and have attempted the fix to the SpryTabbedPanelsDesignTime.js file as suggested here:
    http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/401/kb401257.html .
    I am not sure why this fix  isn't working for me, as it seems to be working for others.
    I am alos getting another similar popup error saying,  "WidgetDomTranslator.js running a long time..."
    I have attached the modified  SpryTabbedPanelsDesignTime.js file that was supposed to fix the problem, but has not.
    If any one can help it would be so very much appreciated!!

    I have never heard of that problem, but reading the technote that you pointed to seems to indicate that it's a problem with Dreamweaver CS3, which shipped with Spry 1.4.
    I have used the params technique many times in Dreamweaver CS4 without problem. The main difference is that Dreamweaver CS4 ships with Spry 1.6.1. You can update Dreamweaver CS3 to Spry 1.6.1 by downloading the Spry updater from http://www.adobe.com/go/labs_spry_download.
    Hopefully, that should fix your problem.

  • Spry Collapsible panel - open and closed default question...

    I am using a Spry Collapsible panel in a vertical nav menu (DW CS4) and it's in a template for my site. I want it to be closed as default on the Home page, but when a visitor clicks to open it and selects their option, I would like it to remain open on the selected page - Is there a way to do this?
    Thank you all!

  • Link to tabs in spry collapsible panel work in IE-8; not Firefox or Safari

    I have little experience with Spry. I've asked my question on the user forum in Dreamweaver several times with no response. I am hoping that someone somewhere in the Adobe community can help me resolve this issue.
    I created links from the top of a page to the tabs of a spry collapsible panel underneath.
    In IE-8, on one page, with a small collapsiable panel, clicking the link creates a rollover effect on the appropriate panel. This effect works wonderfully for my purposes.On another page, with a long collapsible panel, clicking the link jumps the user to the panel AND creates a rollover effect. Perfect.
    In Firefox and Safari, clicking the link does nothing. If I right-click the link in Firefox, I create a duplicate of the page.
    I am using Windows XP and Dreamweaver CS4

    Thanks.

    Arnout, Thank you so much for the guidance!
    My code now looks like this:
    (Click the first tab
    below to open; click to close.)
    but it still doesn't work
    (I still like the error effect in IE!)
    Do I need to add to the CSS or JS script that comes with the spry widget?
    I am accessing all the tutorials I can find, including a very clear
    explanation of event handlers in a Safari online search but I'm obviously
    missing one or more basic concepts.

  • Google map inside the spry collapsible panel

    So this time I've bumped into interesting 'bug'. I've placed the google map inside the spry collapsible panel. Panel is set to the closed mode on load of page. When I open the tab, map appears, but address marker is hidden behind the top left corner. If I place the same map outside the collapsiple panel it renders all well.
    So my  question is whether there is any way around this issue. When I know where the marker is hidden I can simply move the map and see it, but customer who's not aware of the problem will see only blank map with not marked address which is not acceptable.
    cheers,
    Simon

    Sure mate. Here you go:
    <div id="CollapsiblePanel1" class="CollapsiblePanel">
                  <div class="CollapsiblePanelTab" tabindex="0">SHOW MAP</div>
                  <div class="CollapsiblePanelContent">
                  <cfmap  width="242" height="200" zoomlevel="12" name="mainMap" markercolor="333444" showscale="false"
    typecontrol="none"  showcentermarker="true" centeraddress="#get_event.event_address1#, #get_event.event_address2#, #get_event.event_city#,#get_event.event_county#, #get_event.event_postcode#, #get_event.event_country#  "
    ></cfmap>
                  </div>
                </div>
    And this bit goes at the bottom of the code :
    <script type="text/javascript">
    var CollapsiblePanel1 = new Spry.Widget.CollapsiblePanel("CollapsiblePanel1", {contentIsOpen:false});
      </script>
    And that would be the preview that I get once the panel is open:
    And that is the preview of how it should look:
    As you can see the map marker sticks to the top left corner. I was wondering whether there is any way to re-focus it once the panel is open.
    cheers,

  • Need help with spry collapsible panel (menu)

    I learn as I go when I created my website http://www.invitation-fascination.com/shapes.html and so far I've created a page with 13 spry collapsible panels- I think it came out pretty well.  Now this is what I want to add to the page: 
    I want to create a selector (drop down) menu above the panels with the option to select any one of the 13 panels.
    Once selected it will move directly to that panel and open it. 
    I've tried the piselect thing and with the "open" and "close" button that will programatically open the panels, but what I want is for the panel to be selected from the menu and then the page goes directly to that panel and it then opens.
    Is there a way this can be done?  Please help
    I'm really not that good at this stuff- please be easy with your response- thank you

    I have several spry collapsible panels that I am using for

  • Spry collapsible panel - repeating region

    Hi,
    I'm trying to make a repeating region that contains a spry
    collapsable panel.
    The problem is that i need to develop a way to automatically
    increase the ID of the spry panel.
    The problem I am encountering is that only the first
    Collapsible Panel works properly. The remainder are displaying the
    data, but will not open and close when their tabs are clicked. It
    appears that all are being repeated as
    id="CollapsiblePanel1".
    Does anyone have a way to increment the Tab & Content
    ID's?
    On another forum, somebody has suggested using the following
    PHP - although having never used PHP before, I am uncertain as to
    where I insert this into my code:

  • Spry Collapsible Panel at bottom of page - how to make the browser scrolldown automatically

    The question is -
    i have a collapsible panel at the bottom of my page that I'm using as a footer menu.
    It is 200px tall. The visitor clicks on "FIND OUT MORE", then the panel opens 200px tall.
    I want the viewing area of browser to focus on the content of this panel, and automatically scroll down 200px to accomodate the new real estate at the bottom of the page.
    Now they click on it, but then have to manually scroll down.
    How can I do this? What do I add to the Spry Collapsible Panel js scripts?
    I tried using a tag at the bottom of the 200px but can't get it to work correctly.
    Dreamweaver CS5.
    thanks

    I have been closing IE and reopening it for 7 months now. I don't of any other way to reload an applet.

  • Spry Collapsible Panel Rotation

    I have been looking through many tools that have came with Dream Weaver and the spry collapsible panel would look great in my site but im having trouble putting it in the way I would like it to look.  Im trying to insert the spry so that the tabs are read verticaly and open horizantaly with all of its contents being able to be read normaly instead of verticaly. What would I have to edit to to do this?

    To convert the Spry Collapsible Panel would require a lot of changes in the JS. It is therefore better to find a ready-made solution such as here http://www.portalzine.de/Horizontal_Accordion_Plugin_2/index.html

  • Spry collapsible panel - panel (link) border issue

    Hi folks. I'm new to spry and I'm inserting a spry collapsible panel into a web page in Dreamweaver CS4. It all works fine but i have this very ugly border around the panel tab (the link that you click to open the panel). In frefox its a dotted line and in safari its a blue border. I havent had change to check this in other browsers/platforms. (I'm using a mac) I've read that its an accessabilty thing? which can be overcome in a different way. I have to get rid of this border as it completely spoils the design of the site..
    Anyone know how to remove this?
    Thanks in advance :-)

    Hi, I asked that same question a minute ago, then I saw your solution you wrote to someone else previously.
    Works for me too!
    Thanks for solving it!
    Here is another question if you can help...
    I currently have  ">>read more" at the end of the text in my top content tab panel, so the user knows to click and read more in a lower panel.
    I want that ">>read more" text to disappear when it is clicked and lower content section is open.
    And then a "read less" to appear so user knows to click the top tab content to close the bottom panel.
    Can this be done using this Spry Collapsible technique?
    Thanks!

  • Spry collapsible panel with spry data

    I have created a spry collapsible panel and wanted to put
    srpy data in it, to dynamically load.
    i also want to hide the entire panel if no data is available.
    It will show the data, but the click to open/close does not
    work.
    here is the code.

    I have made some progress, thanks, however im still getting
    some odd formatting issues, for example, the 1st panel shows with
    different design to the rest of the panels.
    this is my code;
    <div id="region" spry:region="ds1">
    <div id="repeat" spry:repeat="ds1">
    <div id="CollapsiblePanel{ds_RowID}"
    class="CollapsiblePanel">
    <div class="CollapsiblePanelTab"
    tabindex="{ds1::ds_RowID}"> <h1>{title} - last amended
    {amended}</h1></div>
    <div
    class="CollapsiblePanelContent"><strong>{message}</strong>

    <!--
    var CollapsiblePanel{ds_RowID} = new
    Spry.Widget.CollapsiblePanel("CollapsiblePanel{ds_RowID}");
    //-->
    </script>
    As you can see, I am inserting {ds_RowID} in the variable
    name, in order for the panels to operate independantly, however
    have I coded it correctly?

  • Spry Collapsible Panel Problem with Safari

    Hi my Spry Collapsible Panel looks great in Firefox, Camino, and IE, but the top border, which I am using as a line to divide items in the list, and which I have specified in the CSS page, doesn't show up in Safari and Google Chrome.  Just nothing, and everything else works.  Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!   My CSS page reads as follows:
