Toggle the Fields

While designing the web pages, sometimes you need to show the particular input field or labels or other page element, and show them on some event like click of a button, change the option from combobox ect.

One idea is make the field to be toggled, invisible by default and make it visible on that particular event. Here I am presenting some sample code, to achieve this :

<script language=”javascript” type=”text/javascript”>

function toggle_field()
var changed = document.getElementById(‘enter_card’);
var card1 = document.getElementById(‘hide_field1’);
var card2 = document.getElementById(‘hide_field2’);
card1.style.display = ‘block’;
card2.style.display = ‘block’;

card1.style.display = ‘none’;
card2.style.display = ‘none’;






<td >Select option to show hidden elements:</td>
<select id=”enter_card” name=”card_type” onchange=”toggle_field()”>
<option value=””>Choose….</option>
<option value=”Option1″>Option1</option>
<option value=”Option2″>Option2</option>
<option value=”Option3″>Option3</option>
<td><div id=”hide_field1″ style=”display: none;”>Card Number:</div></td>
<td><div id=”hide_field2″ style=”display: none;”><input type=”text” name =”card_number” value=”” size=”40″></div></td>


The label “card number” and the input field “card_number” will be invisible by default. When somebody selects any option from the dropdown box, the function toggle_field() makes the invisible fields to visible and vice-versa. This code will help in toggling the page elements. Cheers…
