Hi ,

I have 3 tabs and inside each tab there a checkbox and Onclick of the tab or the chekbox i need to display the corresponding contents..

As of now i am able to display the contents on click of the tab but the onclick is not working in case of checkbox.

this is the code for a checkbox inside a tab

<li><a href="#" rel="dog2">Tab 2<span><input type="checkbox" onclick="javascript:checkTab(this.form);" id="chk2"></span></a></li>

Can some one please help me out with this issue

Why is the checkbox inside an anchor? And remove the unnecessary "javascript:" prefix.
