    Default Combining YUI with PHP/mySQL db call

    I am playing around with the YUI.. lots of fun

    I am trying to combine overlays with a db query and am not having much success.

    I am listing RSS titles on the site and when the user hits the '+' sign an overlay is supposed to slide in with the body text of the clicked article title..

    try clicking on the '+' sign next to the very first title -- that one works but the remainder do not.

    <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN" "">
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html;charset=UTF-8">
    		<script type="text/javascript" src="yui/build/yahoo/yahoo.js"></script>
    		<script type="text/javascript" src="yui/build/event/event.js" ></script>
    		<script type="text/javascript" src="yui/build/dom/dom.js" ></script>
    		<script type="text/javascript" src="yui/build/animation/animation.js"></script>
    		<script type="text/javascript" src="yui/build/container/container_core.js"></script>
    			.overlay { position:absolute;border:1px dotted black;padding:5px;margin:10px;background:#fff; }
    			.overlay .hd { border:1px solid red;padding:5px; }
    			.overlay .bd { border:1px solid green;padding:5px; }
    			.overlay .ft { border:1px solid blue;padding:5px; }
    				function init() {
    					// Build overlay3 based on markup
    					YAHOO.example.container.overlay3 = new YAHOO.widget.Overlay("overlay3", { xy:[350,300], 
    															  {effect:YAHOO.widget.ContainerEffect.SLIDE,duration:0.5}] } );
    					YAHOO.util.Event.addListener("show3", "click",, YAHOO.example.container.overlay3, true);
    					YAHOO.util.Event.addListener("hide3", "click", YAHOO.example.container.overlay3.hide, YAHOO.example.container.overlay3, true);
    				YAHOO.util.Event.addListener(window, "load", init);
    							 			$query = "select id, dateUnix, dateString, headline, permalink, body, author, authorURL, favico, sitetype, vote, verified from anews2 where newsCat='breastfeeding' && majorNews = 0 ORDER BY dateUnix DESC LIMIT 10";
    										$result = mysql_query($query);    
    										// echo $query . "
    										echo '<div id="wrapper">';
    												while ($rownews = mysql_fetch_assoc($result)){
    										 						echo '<div id="headline'.$rownews[id].'">[img]'.$rownews[favico].'[/img] <div id="show3" style="display: inline; ">[img]img/icons/expand.gif[/img]</div> '.substr($rownews[headline], 0, 40).'</div>';			 	
    												<div id="overlay<?php echo $rownews[id]; ?>" style="visibility:hidden">
    													<div class="hd"><?php echo 'posted by: '.$rownews[author]; ?></div>
    													<div class="bd"><?php echo $rownews[body]; ?></div>
    													<div class="ft">End of Overlay #3 <div id="hide<?php echo $rownews[id]; ?>">x</div></div>
    							 			echo '</div>';						 	
    the problem is with function init() -- referring to each container as overlay3 is obviously incorrect. How do I change the JS so that the overlay id becomes serialized (ie. id= overlay1, overlay2, overlay3 etc)

    You could make it so each overlay has a classname that you can grab all of them by, then loop through the results and add the listeners or whatever. You could also do an asyncRequest or JSONView and make them using javascript.
