Help about div hide/show

P: n/a
ali
Hello every one

i need you help regarding div hide and show. i am having a link like
<a href="#" onClick="expandWin()">show/hide </a>
<div id=showHide>

</div>
within div i have lots of form tags and div elements say n. The problem
here is i try to hide showHide by calling function
function hideWin()
{

document.getElementById("showHide").style.visibili ty="hidden";
}
but divs within above div don't get hide.

one way is to loop through all divs and made their visibility="hidden"
but it can't work for me as i have to hide a particular portion of web
page and no of divs within that protion is unknown. and making all divs
hidden by getElementByID(DivId) is impractial and overhead

any solution..

What do you mean by "above" divs ?
previous divs ?
or
divs displayed over the showHide div ?
or
divs contained by showHide ?

Your page as described seems curiously built ...
(all elements in absolute, no ?)

<div id="showHide">
<div id="div1"></div>
<div id="div2"></div>
<div id="div3">
<div id="div3.1">

how can i access "id=hideable" text box to hide it
and do:

document.getElementById("hideable").style.visibili ty="hidden";

or do:

document.getElementById("hideable").style.visibili ty="div3.1";

Remember, on a page the id's need to be named uniquely!

However, perhaps you want something like this:

================================================
<script type='text/javascript'>

function toggle(id,n) {
var el = document.getElementById(id).childNodes
for (i=0;i<el.length;i++)
if (el[i].firstChild.className == 'hideable' + n)
el[i].firstChild.style.visibility =
(el[i].firstChild.style.visibility=='')?'hidden':'';
}

</script>

<div id='showHide'>
<div>something else</div>
<div>
<input type='text' name='hideable' class='hideable1'
value='input 1 want to show/hide this on click event'>
</div>
<div>
<input type='text' name='hideable' class='hideable2'
value='input 2 want to show/hide this on click event'>
</div>
<div>
<input type='text' name='hideable' class='hideable3'
value='input 3 want to show/hide this on click event'>
</div>
</div>

<a href='#' onClick='toggle("showHide",1)'>show/hide 1</a><br>
<a href='#' onClick='toggle("showHide",2)'>show/hide 2</a><br>
<a href='#' onClick='toggle("showHide",3)'>show/hide 3</a><br>
================================================

only ie7 tested!

In fact you want to hide the div 'div3.1' no ?

If yes :
function hideWin() {
var d = document.getElementById("div3.1").style;
d.visibility = d.visibility==""? "hidden" : "";
}

Or to switch between show and hide :

function ShowHide(idDiv) {
var d = document.getElementById(idDiv).style;
d.visibility = d.visibility==""? "hidden" : "";
return false;
}

<a href="#" onclick="ShowHide('div3.1');">
show/hide div 'div3.1'
</a>
Now, if you want to hide an element of your form, it is better to call
this element by forms tree :

function hidder(form_name, element_name) {
document.forms[form_name].elements[element_name].style.visibility='hidden';
}

<a href="#" onclick="hidder('myForm','hideable');">
hide textfield "hideable"
</a>
