I would recommend using either the jQuery or Prototype library. I used jQuery more recently myself, so I can give you more examples with that library. The simplest snippet would be the following using the .load() method.


Your HTML may look like this:

<div id="sales_content">Our sales content will load here.</div>

Then, you would use the load method once the document is ready like this:

    // Grab the div container and load the sales page into it (replaces all content)

You can also specify more options for the load method such as a callback to invoke upon completion, what to do if there is an error, or you can even load just a page fragment instead of the whole page returned. Check the documentation for more information.


I would even advise putting some type of loading text and/or image in the container as the page is loaded from AJAX. You can also make a button that would refresh the content by simply calling the load method again. The possibilities are endless for how much you could play with it.


I do also recommend taking a look at jQuery UI where you can spruce up your page as well. If you are planning on making dynamic content on the page that is loaded when needed, I would recommend looking into using the Tabs widget; it supports AJAX loading upon selecting the appropriate tab.
