    Hi Guys

    I’m sure that this is obvious, but as a newcomer to any sort of programming my restricted mindset is not letting me see it.

    What is the most effective way in JavaScript to iterate through a number of things. The example I have in mind specifically is that I need one DIV to be seen at any one time (see example: So when a link is clicked the DIV associated with that link appears and everything else disappears. I can’t help feeling that it is very simple and whilst my clumsy work so far kind of works, it doesn’t appear very smooth.

    Obviously as the items grow the way I am approaching it becomes unworkable very quickly and I can’t help but feel that I am missing some fundamental way of doing things!

    Any help or advice would be much appreciated.


    maybe this can be a starting point

    you can use siblings() to hide the other divs.



    Don’t need the each().


    Thanks very much.
