I have 4 divs with content like below:

<div class="prodNav-Info-Panel">content</div>
<div class="prodNav-Usage-Panel">content</div>
<div class="prodNav-Guarantee-Panel">content</div>
<div class="prodNav-FAQ-Panel">content</div>

And a navigation list like this:

<div id="nav">
<ul id="navigation">
    <li><a class="prodNav-Info" ></a></li>
    <li><a class="prodNav-Usage" ></a></li>
    <li><a class="prodNav-Guarantee"></a></li>
    <li><a class="prodNav-FAQ" ></a></li>

When the page is first displayed I show all the content by executing this:


Now, when you click the navigation list item it reveals the clicked content and hides the others, like this:

    $('.prodNav-Info').click( function() {

So what I have is 4 separate functions because I do not know which content is currently displayed. I know this is inefficient and can be done with a couple of lines of code. It seems like there is a way of saying: when this is clicked, hide the rest.

Can I do this with something like $(this) and $(not this)?

Thanks, Erik
