    Yahoo Beta Column Adjuster

    If you've played around with Yahoo's new Beat email interface you'll notice that they now have adjustable columns to reveal the from, subject, date, size information. This is also found in Outlook and all windows OS. Placing your cursor between two columns allows you to move a column left or right to reveal content of each row.

    Does anyone know how this is done? I have not seen it anywhere else on the internet, but in Yahoo's beta email.

    I've attached a screenshot taken from my yahoo.

    Thanks in advance!!!!

    Maybe like this, where the first scrolling column had an id of col1, and so on:

    var newValue;
    col1 = getElementById('col1');
    col1.style.width=newValue;

    var newValue would hold how far the mouse had moved...

    Not sure how the mouse part works in JS

    PHP Tip: If you want to use short tags (<? or <?=$var) then make sure short_open_tag is set to "1". It really helps.
