Anyone good with javascript? - 04/02/03 01:58 AM

I want to creat a dynamic form. What I want to do is create a page with a single drop down menu. Depending on what you select I want changes to occur in page. That is to say I want more form elements to apear after you make your selection. I have toyed with some code from UBB and got the following.

This site has a good tut if you only need to mak a few dynamic changes. I found the form I had to build took far too long to load. Basicaly you build X# of forms all in one page and use CSS the
tag and JavaScript to show and hide the forms or elements.

The script is fairly complicated as far as javascript goes but it is possible.

I found an alomost I deticle solution on http://www.webmonkey.com in the builder section. Thau's Javascript Tutorial, section 5.

i think you could use vbScript and it wouldn't be as difficult....

Code:
<html>
<head>
<script language=vbScript>
Sub cmdButton_OnClick
Form1.txtBox.style.visibility = "hidden"
End Sub
</script>
</head>
<body>
<form name=Form1>
<input type=text name=txtBox value="">

<input type=button name=cmdButton value="click me">
</form>
</body>
</html>  
and Form1.txtBox.style.visibility = "visible" would make it visible again.

it does work, if you copied it into your thing you likely caused the cmdButton_OnClick to run together with Form1.txtBox.style, it must be on different lines. view the source of my example and see.
