I need to hide a selectbox depending on a cookie value

sub window_OnLoad()
     'I try to set aReflist var earlier...Req.Cookies"cRefList")
 alert aReflist  
    'if Request.Cookies("cRefList") = "1" then
 if aReflist = "1" then
   form1.selRef1.hidden.value = false
 else
   form1.selRef1.hidden.value = true
end if
End Sub

If this can't be done, can a java script read a cookie that was set in vb? What is the syntax for that?

If you need to hide you can just say...

form1.selRef1.style.visibility = hidden

form1.selRef1.style.visibility = hidden
doesn't seem to work? Is it ok that it is in the window_onload()
I get my alert box [see above ] and I put your line after the alert.


<select name="selRef1" size="1" class="boldregulartext">

what I mean is if you are using asp,
you can just say,

if flag=1 then
   reponse.write "<input type=checkbox nam=test value=test>"
end if

Here as you see if the condition fails the ceckbox code is not written to the html... or rather is not displayed...
