Oh, you could absolutely make a hundred 'pages' in one HTML file - but you
really don't need to. You can make 100 HTML files and have them all linked
together. I'm not 100% sure I still get what you want, though.
So you have 10 items [tests you are running or whatnot] and 10 subjects for
those 10 tests, so 100 different sets of images, plus a summary page. You
want to have one page you open up that links to those 101 pages, and be able
to toggle between them easily? Or you really want just one physical file
[because it's annoying to have a bunch of files cluttering up a directory /
for transfer to other people]?
One page of links is easy to do (and it looks like you've done about 2/3 of
the work already in your summary page, if I understand what you mean by that
correctly). You could set it up with a DIV that opened up the source page
into a second div, or a frame (if you're feeling like rocking it like it's
If you actually wanted just one physical file [other than the GIFs], then
the easiest way to do it is to have each child page be a separate DIV, which
is hidden by default, and then have the link from the summary report 'show'
that DIV. So:
<a href="#" onClick="showID(ID_Locus)">Show ID_Locus</a>
<div id="ID_Locus" css="display:none">
<td><img src="C:\GIF1.gif " height="300" width="600"/></td>
<td><img src="C:\GIF2.gif " height="300" width="600"/></td>
<td><img src="C:\GIF3.gif " height="300" width="600"/></td>
<td><img src="C:\GIF4.gif " height="300" width="600"/></td>
'display:block' and all other DIVs to 'display:none' (or, preferably,
remembers which was displayed most recently and just hides that one).
http://www.netlobo.com/div_hiding.html is a good example of how to do that
(hide/show). It's a bit cumbersome, and in general probably easier to
manage 101 pages than to have all this in one page, but if you really like
one file it's the easiest way I know of to do it.
