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.

No problem, it's just one of those days, eh?

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.
