Hi,

I have the below code which works well to show the hidden text field but once the field is changed to inline-block it cannot be reverted back to hidden.

Can you please provide suggestions? Thanks.
function Change(){
if (document.getElementById( "myId" ).style.display = "none")
	{
		document.getElementById( "myId" ).style.display = "inline-block"; 
	}
else
 
if (document.getElementById( "myId" ).style.display = "inline-block")
	{
		document.getElementById( "myId" ).style.display = "none"; 
	}
}
 
<BODY>
 
<tr>
 
<td>
<input type="button" onclick="Change();" value="Click Me">
</td>
 
<!--<input type="button" onclick="Hide();" value="Java Hide"> -->
 
<td><input type=text id="myId" style="display:none"></input></td>
 
</tr>
 
</BODY>
</HTML>

Hello,

I use this funtion which can show/hide many different elements in page:

<script type="text/javascript">
var state = 'none';
function showhide(divname) {
      if (state == 'block') {
            state = 'none';
      }
      else {
            state = 'block';
      }
      if (document.all) {
            eval("document.all." + divname + ".style.display = state");
      }
      if (document.layers) {
            document.layers[divname].display = state;
            
      }
      if (document.getElementById &&!document.all) {
            document.getElementById(divname).style.display = state;
      }
}
</script>
===================
<input type="button" onclick="showhide('myId');" value="Click Me">

Regards
