Hi guys,

I'm working on adding a feature to hide rows of a table in one of my web applications, and get this error on page load:

Error: Could not get display property. Invalid argument.

this is my function:

function InspectorShowHide(displaySetting) {
      document.getElementById("insRowinspectorID").style.display = displaySetting;
      document.getElementById("insRowinspectorWidth").style.display = displaySetting;
      document.getElementById("insRowinspectorHeight").style.display = displaySetting;
      document.getElementById("insRowinspectorLatitude").style.display = displaySetting;
      document.getElementById("insRowinspectorLongitude").style.display = displaySetting;
      document.getElementById("insRowinspectorZIndex").style.display = displaySetting;
}

and it is being called on the:

<body onload="InsectorShowHide('hide');">

Any ideas how to get past this error?


Cheers!

Hi Cyber-Drugs,

It is:

display:none
visibility:hidden

;-)

Cyber-Drugs,

In fact, to toggle, you would do:

InspectorShowHide('none');

and

InspectorShowHide('');

assuming of course InspectorShowHide is spelled correctly.

Use 'none' instead of 'hide'
'block' will make the elements visible again,
'inline' will also make them visisble, but in a different manner.

Yep, exactly, and there are other ones too, such as inline-block and table, for instance. Setting it to blank will revert the object to its default display setting, be it block, inline, or table, etc.
