Hi,

I want to show and hide DIV-elements by using multiple radio buttons
(and diffent radio names).

The problem is that when I "hit" a radio button the content of the
other radio button (DIV) get hidden.

Hope someone understand my problem  

Thanks Vetle

function hideDiv(){
tag = document.getElementsByTagName("div");
for(x=0;x<tag.length; x++){
if(tag[x].getAttribute('id').indexOf("choose_") != -1){
tag[x].style.display = "none";
}
}
}
function view(id){
ge = document.getElementById('choose_' + id.value);

Hi, you can change the if(... indexOf("choose")) to be dynamic and test for choose_a, choose_b or choose_c and leave the other sections untouched:

<html>
<head>
<title>Help me</title>

<style type="text/css">
.hide {display: none}
</style>

<script type="text/javascript">
function hideDiv(range){
tag = document.getElementsByTagName("div");
for(x=0;x<tag.length; x++){
if(tag[x].getAttribute('id').indexOf(range) != -1){
tag[x].style.display = "none";
}
}
}
function view(id){
ge = document.getElementById('choose_' + id.value);
hideDiv("choose_" + id.value.substring(0,1)); //choose_a, choose_b or choose_c
ge.style.display = "block";
}
</script>

</head>
<body>
<table>
<form name="form1" id="form1" method="post" action="">
<tr>
<td width="200"><input type="radio" name="name1" value="a1" onclick="view(this)">Sports </td>
<td width="200"><input type="radio" name="name1" value="a2" onclick="view(this)">News </td>
<td width="200"><input type="radio" name="name1" value="a3" onclick="view(this)">Travel </td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td><div class="hide" id="choose_a1">ID content "a1" (Sports)</div></td>
<td><div class="hide" id="choose_a2">ID content "a2" (News)</div></td>
<td><div class="hide" id="choose_a3">ID content "a3" (Travel)</div></td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td colspan="3">&nbsp;</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td><input type="radio" name="name2" value="b1" onclick="view(this)">Sports 2 </td>
<td><input type="radio" name="name2" value="b2" onclick="view(this)">News 2 </td>
<td><input type="radio" name="name2" value="b3" onclick="view(this)">Travel 2 </td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td><div class="hide" id="choose_b1">ID content "b1" (Sports 2)</div></td>
<td><div class="hide" id="choose_b2">ID content "b2" (News 2)</div></td>
<td><div class="hide" id="choose_b3">ID content "b3" (Travel 2)</div></td>
</tr>
</form>
