Adaptive forms

I'm new to javascript and been forced to jump in at the deep end(at
least this feels like the deep end to me!).

I need a form with two buttons, and when one of the buttons is pressed
it displays a text box, like so.

<form method = "POST" action="<?php echo $_SERVER['PHP_SELF']; ?>">

<button type="submit">S how Text Field</button><br>

<button type="submit">S ubmit</button>

How do i go about implementing this in JavaScript?

I have a lot of respect for David Fenton and Allen Browne, but I don't understand why people who know how to write code to completely replace a front end do not write something that will automate the code that implements managing unbound controls on forms given the superior performance of unbound controls in a client/server environment. I can easily understand a newbie using bound controls or someone with a tight deadline. I guess I need...

Hi, Both the methods below open up a windows form called MasterForm. However, one works better than the other.

I can interact with the main form window but I cannot interact with the NotifyIcon. Method 2 gives a object reference...

Hello, AFIAK ASP.NET (1.1) uses a technology called 'Adpative Rendering' to output HTML that is compliant with the client browser or at least stick to HTML 4 specification or IE. This seems to be quite a problem for me. I have HTML output for Mozilla that has missing style attribute in list boxes and buttons and my layout seems crappy. If I save the HTML that comes for IE and open the file with Mozilla everything seems correct.

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
