( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I have a web server that creates dynamic web pages, even the main page is dynamic. Each page is created on the fly using perl.

All works fine, but what I would like to do is (this is a little off topic) create an interactive table. Much like using frames where you would have a frame on the left with menu items that would update the frame on the right with the requested document.

The information in the cells is going to be kept in a HoH or AoA or whatever fits my fancy at the moment.

I wish to do this with tables instead of frames. Where clicking on a link in one cell updates the contents of another cell. I am fairly new to HTML and don't know a lot. I can make pages, links etc, but no advanced stuff. I don't know any HTML scripting langs, but am not against learning them, just haven't gotten around to doing it.

Is this something that can be done or do I have to use frames?

TIA, Chad.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
