Hello Everyone -

I am using a .net CheckBox object.

I need the box and the Text Label to hide - but the label is stubborn
and remains displayed -

Here is my syntax -

<asp:CheckBox ID="chkBoxOptionsAdmin" runat="server" Checked="True" Text="Yes?"
                                                                              TextAlign="Left" Width="49px" />

document.getElementById('chkBoxOptionsAdmin').style.display = 'none';

??? Can Javascript hide the label ? or do I need a .net command?

To hide all of it, you need to put both the checkbox and its label within a <span> tag with its own ID. Then, getElementById() that span tag.
