Not sure if I've got the JS wrong or the .net code wrong but....
I have an asp button and I added the property onclientclick, I'm trying to set a DIV to visible when the button is clicked. The page refreshes but the DIV is still hidden any ideas?

<script type="text/javascript">
function toggle_visibility(id) {
var e = document.getElementById(id);
//if( == 'none') = 'block';
// = 'none';

<asp:Button ID="AddMe" runat="server" Text="Add" OnClientClick="toggle_visibility('NewAbs')" />

<div id="NewAbs" style="visibility: hidden"> <table cellpadding="4" cellspacing="4" border="1">
some stuff in here
