I want to create a link from a "results page" to the "detail page" on the same page without updating the page.

I want to create a link from a "results page" to the "detail page" on the same page without updating the page.

I have created a simple detail page that I included on the results page using the Framework Builder plug-in. Here I have done as described in a previous post: (http://www.webassist.com/forums/posts.php?id=30338), where you wrote: "... using that link as a guide, I Create a new URL binding on the binding panel by clicking the plus button, select URL Variable and set the name to "id. then add the plugin, Go to webassist -> Framework Builder -> Plugins -> Insert Plugin. For the plugin source, select the details page, then click the parameters button, create a new parameter named id, and for the value, click the lightning bolt icon and select the id URL variable ... ".

The idea is that when the user presses one of the images in the "results" area, the detail page area will be updated.

But I probably did wrong, because it does not work. Instead, the detail page opens in a new page then I press an image, which indicates that I did something right :). I have not understood how the trigger is supposed to work here. The image element consists of an a href link and no button: "<a href="views_detail.php?id=<?php echo($WADAllPage-> getColumnVal (" id ")); ?> ">.

This can be done using AJAX and the webassist Behavior (not Server Behavior) "Load Plugin to Div"... however it is a bit too complicated for me to simply explain over the forum and expect you to pull off. I think this is something we would have to do in a 1 hour premium support ticket. That should give me time to show you the concepts and get most of it working for you so you can complete it and do similar functionality in the future.

This is the same concept that will be used in the Dynamic Dropdowns tutorial I already have people working on. If you can wait a few weeks that will be available and it might create the "aha" moment that allows you to put it together for what you are trying to accomplish.

So you mean that all the parts I describe in the picture - will work with this?
If so that sounds great. Ill try to relax a bit then :). Very curios!

Yes. It will get a little tricky I'm sure, but the same concepts. You replace <div> tags with contents from a plugin that is designed to respond to actions on the page.

The tutorial isn't ready, but I've been told it will be soon. I'm hoping in the next week or two.
