I am tryiing to expland and collapse  a div "reportingSection" by clicking (+) or (-) sign.but, It's not working as I expected. When the page got lodede the default shoud be (+) collapse and if I click (+) , the div will expand (-). Right now , it shows (-)  when the page got loded, and if i click (-) it expands,but it doesn't collpse when I click again. I am not sure what I am doing wrong here

Here is my .aspx

    <asp:PlaceHolder ID="plcExpandCollapsePanel" runat="server" Visible="false" EnableViewState="false">
  <div id="expand" ><a href="#" onclick="ExpandCollapsePanel(true);"><img  src="~/Images/Collapse.gif" runat="server" style="margin-right: 5px;" />Change Search Criteria</a></div>
  <div id="collapse" style="display: none;"><a href="#" onclick="ExpandCollapsePanel(false);"><img  src="~/Images/Expand.gif" runat="server" style="margin-right: 5px;" />Change Search Criteria</a></div>
  </asp:PlaceHolder>
            <div id="reportingSection" style="display: none;" runat="server">

Here is code behind

 protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
           plcExpandCollapsePanel.Visible = true;
    }



and here is the java script:


function ExpandCollapsePanel(expand)
{
  if (expand)
  {
      document.getElementById('collapse').style.display = 'none';
      document.getElementById('ctl00_plcMainContent_reportingSection').style.display = 'block';
      document.getElementById('expand').style.display = 'block';
  }
  else
  {
      document.getElementById('collapse').style.display = 'block';
      document.getElementById('ctl00_plcMainContent_reportingSection').style.display = 'none';
      document.getElementById('expand').style.display = 'none';
  }
}

Hi jung,

ihere is a very Basic and simple example of show/ hide div

Copy the code in a new page and try integrating it with your current code.. and see if it works


Try this function - best ive found and its good cross browser compatibility:

<!-- in HEAD of document -->
<script language="javascript">

var state = 'hidden';

function showhide(layer_ref) {

if (state == 'visible') {
state = 'hidden';
}
else {
state = 'visible';
}
if (document.all) { //IS IE 4 or 5 (or 6 beta)
eval( "document.all." + layer_ref + ".style.visibility = state");
}
if (document.layers) { //IS NETSCAPE 4 or below
document.layers[layer_ref].visibility = state;
}
if (document.getElementById && !document.all) {
maxwell_smart = document.getElementById(layer_ref);
maxwell_smart.style.visibility = state;
}
}

</script>


<!-- in BODY of document -->

<div id="agent99" style="position:absolute; top:103px; left:153px;
visibility:hidden;">
your stuff to show here
</div>

<!-- CLICK LINK TO SHOW LAYER -->

<a href="javascript://" onclick="showhide('agent99');">click me</a>

cheers
Collin

Why are you using the placeholder? I think that is unnecessary. Anyhow, here is a working example.

HTML CODE:
<a href="#" onclick="javascript:toggle()"><img src="~/Images/Expand.gif" id="toggler" border="0" /></a>&nbsp;Click to expand
<div id="reportingSection" style="display: none;">This is a test</div>

<script>
var imgExpand = new Image();
imgPlus.src = '~/Images/Expand.gif';

var imgCollapse = new Image();
imgMinus.src = '~/Images/Collapse.gif';

function toggle()
{
      var e = document.getElementById('reportingSection');
      var i = document.images['toggler'];
      
      e.style.display = (e.style.display=='block') ? 'none':'block';
      i.src = (i.src==imgExpand.src) ? imgCollapse.src : imgExpand.src;                              
}

</script>

If I try your code I get java script error: object required..


<script type="text/javascript">>
var imgExpand = new Image();
imgPlus.src = '~/Images/Expand.gif';

var imgCollapse = new Image();
imgMinus.src = '~/Images/Collapse.gif';

function toggle()
{
     var e = document.getElementById('reportingSection');
     var i = document.images['toggler'];
     
     e.style.display = (e.style.display=='block') ? 'none':'block';
     i.src = (i.src==imgExpand.src) ? imgCollapse.src : imgExpand.src;                        
}

</script>

   
           
           
   <a href="#" onclick="javascript:toggle()"><img src="~/Images/Expand.gif" id="toggler" border="0" /></a>&nbsp;Click to expand

I copied and pasted the script from a website I am working on and forgot to replace imgPlus and imgMinus with imgExpand and imgCollapse.


This should work.

<script type="text/javascript">>
var imgExpand = new Image();
imgExpand .src = '~/Images/Expand.gif';

var imgCollapse = new Image();
imgCollapse .src = '~/Images/Collapse.gif';

function toggle()
{
     var e = document.getElementById('reportingSection');
     var i = document.images['toggler'];
     
     e.style.display = (e.style.display=='block') ? 'none':'block';
     i.src = (i.src==imgExpand.src) ? imgCollapse.src : imgExpand.src;                        
}

</script>


Here is a link to see it in action.

, I made it to work using my current code somehow but..

the only problem is "Expand" is the default.., so when the page got loded or postback it shows the "Expand"mode.  I would like to set"Collapse" as the default setting.. what do i need to change in my java script...

 <asp:PlaceHolder ID="plcExpandCollapsePanel" runat="server" Visible="false" EnableViewState="false">
  <div id="expand" ><a href="#" onclick="ExpandCollapsePanel(true);"><img id="Img1" src="~/Images/Collapse.gif" runat="server" style="margin-right: 5px;" />Change Search Criteria</a></div>
  <div id="collapse"  style="display: none;"><a href="#" onclick="ExpandCollapsePanel(false);"><img id="Img2" src="~/Images/Expand.gif" runat="server" style="margin-right: 5px;" />Change Search Criteria</a></div>
  </asp:PlaceHolder>
            <div id="reportingSection" style="display: none;" runat="server">


function ExpandCollapsePanel(expand)
{
  if (expand)
  {
      document.getElementById('collapse').style.display = 'block';
      document.getElementById('ctl00_plcMainContent_reportingSection').style.display = 'none';
      document.getElementById('expand').style.display = 'none';
  }
  else
  {
      document.getElementById('collapse').style.display = 'none';
      document.getElementById('ctl00_plcMainContent_reportingSection').style.display = 'block';
      document.getElementById('expand').style.display = 'block';
  }
