obj.style.visibility = "hidden"; Problem in Firefox and Netscape

Hi Folks,

I am having this problem in Firefox and Netscape

I have the following layer in my html page

<div id="nextDis" style="visibility: visible; position:absolute; left:941px; top:649px; width: 73px; height: 26px; z-index:5"><img src="../images/btn_next_disabled.jpg" alt="Next Button Disabled" name="nextDis" width="73" height="26" border="0"></div>

I am calling this function on an event

NextAble();

My problem is disappear(nextDis); DOES NOT work in Firefox and Netscape, but works in IE

The Error in Firefox is nextDis is not defined

Is there a workaround to this problem.

Thanks

RG

function NextAble(){

			if (parent.Navigation.varArray[parent.Navigation.count] == "true"){

				disappear(nextDis); // Hide the layer nextDis

				appear(nextL); // Show the layer nextL

			}

}
 

function disappear(obj) {

  if (obj.style.visibility == "visible") {

    obj.style.visibility = "hidden";

  }

}
 
 

function appear(obj) {

	if (obj.style.visibility == "hidden"){

  	 obj.style.visibility = "visible";

	}

}

instead of:

try using:

in your original post you have:
disappear(nextDis);

try changing that to:
disappear( document.getElementById("nextDis") );


Likewise, if you have some element with id="nextL", change:
appear(nextL)

to:
appear( document.getElementById("nextL"))
