Hi Experts,

After searching for the best way to show/hide a checkbox with some text next to it, I settled on using a <div> and vbscript to change the style visibility.

My issue now is that the <div> actually effects the insides of the <td> making it appear to be 2 lines, like it was a <p> or something.

Is there some way of removing this effect, so that is simply appears next to the text? Maybe another tag?

The HTML is dynamically created from ASP, based on a SP.

I look forward to your reply.

--------Snippet - Source HTML-----------

<tr><td class=Bonds><a href=TransBankView_nh1.asp?BankCode=BA    >BA    </td><td class=Bonds> </td>

<td class=Bonds>DD</td>

<td class=Bonds>POOL  </td>

<td class=Bonds>80,000,000</td>

<td class=Bonds>12,690</td>

<td class=Bonds>80,012,690</td>

<td class=Bonds  align=center><INPUT Type=CheckBox Name=checkall3 onclick=vbscript:enablePI(3)> 

<div name=divcheckbox3 STYLE="visibility:  hidden">PI<INPUT type=CheckBox Name=PI3></div>

<INPUT Type=Hidden Name=TranID3 Value=1677></td></tr>
 

-------VBScript--------

Function enablePI(intID)

dim CA

dim PI
 

	CA = "checkall" & intID

	PI = "PI" & intID

	if Frmcheckall.elements(CA).checked = true then

		Eval("divcheckbox" & intID).style.visibility  = "visible"

		Frmcheckall.elements(PI).checked = 0

	else

		Eval("divcheckbox" & intID).style.visibility = "hidden"

		Frmcheckall.elements(PI).checked = 0

	end if
 

End Function

<div> is a block level tag, try using <span> instead.
