OK I will try to make this make sense.

I have an html page with JS that displays a DIV block after a link on
that page is clicked.

The JS is looking for

Attributes from an <anchor> link:

rel='aaa'
href='bbb'
class='ccc'

to open the DIV.

Is there a way to call this html page from a different PHP page script
that will cause the html to behave as if its anchor was clicked?

Thanks
Scotty

Scotty,

What do you mean by "call this html page from a different PHP page"? Do
you mean including the script in another page, loading the page with
header('Location: xxx') or something else?

Currently there is only one page involved.

Lets say auto.html

On this page there is a quote link that calls a JS function on the page
looking at the class, id and rel from the link, that then displays a
currently hidden div that has the actual quote form on it.

Additionally there are 2 other pages.

An index.html page that has a quick quote form with a dropdown to select
quote category (such as auto, home etc..) which when clicked calls a
quote.php page which sends out an email to the agent.

What they would like to do is combine the quick quote on the index.html
page to redirect to the category page, auto.html and display the quote
form in one fell swoop.

I have created a solution and have the quote.php look at the post from
the index.html form and then using header to redirect to the auto.html
with a loaded url with query parameters.

Since the original JS does not look at the url I just created a new js
that parses it. I hate having 2 scripts do the same thing due to
different modes of giving it parameters.

I suppose however that this is just the way it may have to be.

So your actual quote form is a hidden div on auto.html, rather than a
separate quote.html.

So presumably the quick quote form entails different data entry to the
quote form on auto.html?

Is auto.html for a specific type of insurance?

It sounds to me as if the basic requirement is that:

Index.html has a "quote" menu

On the "quote" menu, you have a list of types of insurance (auto,
building, home contents etc .....)

Selecting the relevant type of insurance should open up a form that
captures data relevant to the insurance quote type.

This sounds more like a website structuring issue than a php or javascript
issue. It sounds as if the existing website structure doesn't really
match the way people are expected to use the website, which suggests that
the website structure needs to be fixed.

I agree wholeheartedly about the initial design/layout. I believe it
was designed and thrown together in a rush to just get a site up. Now
we have to come in from behind and make things work that where not
designed to work.

I was able to create a solutions, but not one that I would be proud of
having someone else see. ;)

Scotty,

Sounds like you're on the right track. But isn't that always the case
when you come in late to a project? I don't know how many times I've
found myself in a similar situation - it really needs to be rewritten
but time and/or financial constraints don't allow it.

But as long as you've got it working right, you're the hero! :)

Thanks

I figured you would probably relate.
Frustrating but hey, that's life.

So you change things with
<script>
function changeText(){
document.getElementById('div id').innerHTML = 'foo;
}
</script>

Yes, reload your page with a form action which is the same as your current php page,
then do isset on a $_POST["nameofvalue"] and contemplate.
