How to open sections of a form by clicking a link

Hi,
I want to create a form for an insurance company where customer can add their information at the top, then there is a line of text that is hyperlinked that says "click here if you want to add another family members details" and if they click it the section opens like a spry panel and they can add more info. Alternatively, they can skip the hyperlink and go straight to the submit button. I have seen it done before and wondered if form builder / data bridge is capable of that and if you have any suggestions on how to go about it?
Thanks!

You need to hand code this using Spry or another Javascript framework like jquery.

Hi Jason, thanks. So I can put a spry within a form? I wasn't sure that I could do that?

Hi,
Thanks Jason and Craig!
I ended up going the spry route (only because I didn't see your comment Craig :-) - which ended up working great. Craig, nice little reservation dropdown on the rhubarb site! If I have call for it next time, i'll go with jQuery for something different. Craig, did you use any specific freely available scripts for it? The tutorial would be great as I'm sure i'll have need of it and many others would as well.
Thanks again,
Nic

Hi Nic.

I didn't use a script, I created one myself, but it is pretty straightforward.

If you are interested, there is a good book by sitepoint called jquery, Novice to Ninja (http://www.sitepoint.com/books/jquery1/)

I used the examples in here as a starting point and went from there.
