Changing class name of "tr" element dyncamically using IHTMLElement->put_className

I want to be able to dynmically hide/unhide rows in a table. In my CDHtmlDialog class I call a function to changing the class of specific "tr" element to hidden. It appears to do that but the elements within the "tr" are still visable (buttons, text input, etc), although their text is removed. If I specify in the html file that the "tr" element is hidden innitially then everything is hidden correctly so there's nothing wrong with my html method. But I've no idea what else I can try. The html is listed below followed by


<tr id="line1">
      <td>Image 1</td>
      <td><button id="Browse">Browse 1</button></td>
      <td><input name="image1filename" type="text" readonly="true"></td>
</tr>


if (sTempTagName == _T("tr"))
{
      VARIANT varTagID;
      VariantInit(&varTagID);
      if (SUCCEEDED(pElem->getAttribute(L"id",0,&varTagID))
            && (varTagID.vt != VT_NULL))
      {
            CString strID = (CString)varTagID.bstrVal;
            if (strID == "line2")
                  pElem->put_className(L"hidden");
      }
      VariantClear(&varTagID);
}

Forgot to complete my last sentence. Oops! Here's the code which uses IHTMLElement->put_className to change the "tr" element  to my hidden class which is defined in my CSS file as shown at the bottom. Thanks.

if (sTempTagName == _T("tr"))
{
     VARIANT varTagID;
     VariantInit(&varTagID);
     if (SUCCEEDED(pElem->getAttribute(L"id",0,&varTagID))
          && (varTagID.vt != VT_NULL))
     {
          CString strID = (CString)varTagID.bstrVal;
          if (strID == "line2")
               pElem->put_className(L"hidden");
     }
     VariantClear(&varTagID);
}

.hidden
{
      visibility:hidden;
}

Hi..
It seems that we have to hide the definitions ( td).. without which it is not working...
I Could get the tag name also after setting it as hidden ..but for the input elements and buttons , we have  to hide them explicitly.. normal text td's are hidden if we hide the tr...
Check the following Code...

                                      MSHTML::IHTMLDocument2Ptr pDoc(GetHtmlDocument());      
                  MSHTML::IHTMLDocument3Ptr pDoc3 = pDoc;      
                  MSHTML::IHTMLElementCollectionPtr pCollection ,pCollection1;      
            
                  MSHTML::IHTMLElementPtr pEle,pEle2;
            
                  pCollection = pDoc3->getElementsByTagName(_T("tr"));
                        pCollection1 = pDoc3->getElementsByTagName(_T("td"));
                  if(pCollection)
                  {
                        pEle = pCollection->item(CComVariant(0),CComVariant(0));
                        pEle2 = pCollection1->item(CComVariant(0),CComVariant(0));
                        //pEle->put_className(L"hidden");
                        BSTR className[10];
                        //pEle->get_className(className);
                        //pEle->setAttribute(L"class",L"hidden",2);
                        pEle->put_className(L"hidden");
                        pEle2->put_className(L"hidden");
                        pEle->get_className(className);
                        

                  }

Luv..

Oh well, if that's the only way to do it then I guess it's not too bad. I'm a freak for efficiency so I would have loved to be able to hide everything with just one line of code :)

Many thanks for your help.
