I have created a simple form using JSP and doing the field validations using java script. when there is any error I am displaying the corresponding error message written in DIV tag Dynamically

In form load even I am making the visibility of the DIV tag to Hidden

and when any error occurs then I am calling a function which makes the Div tag visibility property to Visible

It is working fine in Internet Explorer

I want to achieve the same functionality for Netscape Navigator 6.0 also

All you need to know is the way to reference divs in Netscape...where IE would use document.all you would need document.getElementByID for Netscape 6...

Max.

if (document.getElementByID || document.all)
 do stuff if expression is True;


The double pipe || does not have a space between them and stands for
"logical OR".


Good luck,
Jim S.

Netscape 4.x does not support dynamic setting through hidden and visible but hide and show.  Netscape 6 does support hidden and visible.  The key thing is accessing the object correctly.  IE uses square brackets and NS6 uses round.  That could be an issue for you.

if (document.all) {
  // do IE code
  document.all["divID"].style.visibility = "visible"
} else if (document.getElementById&&!document.all) {
  // do NS6 code
  document.getElementById("divID").style.visibility = "visible"
} else if (document.layers) {
  // do NS4.x code
  document.layers["divID"].visibility = "show"
}

Glad to help.  Thanks for the A.

I just noticed you have a lot of open questions.  I recommend you go through your list of questions and revisit them to see if you can close a few of them.  I also noticed of your 23 open questions, 4 of them have your top value of 50 points.  And a lot have a lot less.  It is recommended that an easy question gets 50 points, medium 100, and hard 200 points.  You may find you get more help if you show some respect to the experts here that give you help for free by following the guidelines.

Have a look at http://www.experts-exchange.com/jsp/cmtyQuestAnswer.jsp  Especially the part on "How do I get answers?"

All credit to you in that I see your grading history seems to be almost completely A's.  That is at least some way towards a great record on EE.

Nothing nasty intended by any of this.  Just some more free advice.
