	optionsToggleBtn.live('click', function(){
		$('#options').slideToggle('slow' , function(){

    Hi, the link to the online demo is wrong. It currently goes to the json tree viewer.

    Hi Thomas, Yes this is the correct demo. The options toolbar can be opened and closed using the green arrow on the right of the JSON Tree Viewer. Cheers. Sam
