I have a table of results. One row has a submit button. Ive written code to execute a JSON call and I can easily change disable the button and change the text:

function lockButton(buttonClicked) {  // Lock button so it cannot be pressed again.
      $(buttonClicked).disable();
      $(buttonClicked).value='Processing...'; }

But, ideally Id like to replace the button with text. The button is in a cell:
$$('table#resultTable td#action_1)

Unfortunately I cannot work out the correct syntax to replace the button with text. How do I correct my problem?

Thank you for any time and help.

you can put one lable there with display style none..

and on this funtion

function lockButton(buttonClicked) {  // Lock button so it cannot be pressed again.
      $(buttonClicked).style.diaplay = 'none';
      $(lablenew).style.diaplay='block';
