I added an ID to the label and the onclick attribute.

Should be what you wanted.
<form id="form1" name="form1" method="post" action="">

  <p>

    <label>

      <input type="checkbox" name="parent" id="parent" 

      onclick="document.getElementById('parent_label').style.display = (this.checked)?'none':''"/>

      Is Parent</label>

  </p>

  <p>

    <label id="parent_label" >Select Parent:

      <select name="parent_id" id="parent_id">

        <option value="4">Marvel Comics</option>

        <option value="3">DC Comics</option>

        <option value="2">Lost</option>

        <option value="1">Heros</option>

      </select>

    </label>

  </p>

  <p>

    <label>Account Number:

      <input type="text" name="name" id="name" />

    </label>

  </p>

  <p>

    <label>

      <input type="submit" name="submit" id="submit" value="Submit" />

    </label>

  </p>

</form>

which menu field?? there is no field named "menu" there.... anyway, If I got it right you want to hide the <select> element... so here it goes...


    <script type="text/javascript">

    function setVisible() {

      if (document.getElementById('parent').checked) {

         document.getElementById('menu').style.display='none';

      } else {

         document.getElementById('menu').style.display='block';

      }

    }

    </script>

<form id="form1" name="form1" method="post" action="">

  <p>

    <label>

      <input type="checkbox" name="parent" id="parent" onclick="setVisible();" onkeypress="this.onclick();" />

      Is Parent</label>

  </p>

  <div id="menu">

    <label>Select Parent:

      <select name="parent_id" id="parent_id">

        <option value="4">Marvel Comics</option>

        <option value="3">DC Comics</option>

        <option value="2">Lost</option>

        <option value="1">Heros</option>

      </select>

    </label>

  </div>

etc...

That is basically the approach I would have taken but rather then do the document.getEle... in the actual onClick I woudl ahve called a funtion.  That way you can write something like this:

function hidebox {
if (document.form1.parent[0].checked) {
      document.getElementById('parent_label').style.display = 'none':
         }
then in your onClick you call hidebox

That way you can also add code so that when the box is unchecked the other one comes back

Looks really good. I tried to add it to the actual form I am working in and I could only get it to hide either the label text or the drop down select.

Here is the form I was working in:
<td class="KT_th"><label for="parrent_<?php echo $cnt1; ?>">Is Parent:</label></td>

                      <td><input  <?php if (!(strcmp(KT_escapeAttribute($row_rsaccounts['parrent']),"Y"))) {echo "checked";} ?> type="checkbox" name="parrent_<?php echo $cnt1; ?>" id="parrent_<?php echo $cnt1; ?>" value="Y" onclick="document.getElementById('parent_label').style.display = (this.checked)?'none':''"/>

                      <?php echo $tNGs->displayFieldHint("parrent");?> <?php echo $tNGs->displayFieldError("accounts", "parrent", $cnt1); ?></td>

                    </tr>

                    <tr>

                      <td class="KT_th"><label for="parent_id_<?php echo $cnt1; ?>">Select Parent:</label></td>

                      <td><label id="parent_label"><select name="parent_id_<?php echo $cnt1; ?>" id="parent_id_<?php echo $cnt1; ?>">

                        <option value=""><?php echo NXT_getResource("Select one..."); ?></option>

                        <?php 

do {  

?>

                        <option value="<?php echo $row_parentlist['id']?>"<?php if (!(strcmp($row_parentlist['id'], $row_rsaccounts['parent_id']))) {echo "SELECTED";} ?>><?php echo $row_parentlist['description']?></option>

                        <?php

} while ($row_parentlist = mysql_fetch_assoc($parentlist));

  $rows = mysql_num_rows($parentlist);

  if($rows > 0) {

      mysql_data_seek($parentlist, 0);

	  $row_parentlist = mysql_fetch_assoc($parentlist);

  }

?>

                      </select></label>

This is how I would do it.
    <script type="text/javascript">

    function toggleMenu(checked) {

      if (checked) {

         document.getElementById('menu').style.display='none';

      } else {

         document.getElementById('menu').style.display='';

      }

    }

    </script>

<form id="form1" name="form1" method="post" action="">

  <p>

    <label>

      <input type="checkbox" name="parent" onchange="toggleMenu(this.checked)" id="parent" />

      Is Parent</label>

  </p>

  <p>

    <label>Select Parent:

      <select name="parent_id" id="parent_id">

        <option value="4">Marvel Comics</option>

        <option value="3">DC Comics</option>

        <option value="2">Lost</option>

        <option value="1">Heros</option>

      </select>

    </label>

  </p>

  <p>

    <label>Account Number:

      <input type="text" name="name" id="name" />

    </label>

  </p>

  <p>

    <label>

      <input type="submit" name="submit" id="submit" value="Submit" />

    </label>

  </p>

</form>

You have multiple objects to deal with... as well as a tr/td.. we need to id the whole thing:

change the onclick to:
onclick="document.getElementById('parent_row_<?php echo $cnt1; ?>').style.display = (this.checked)?'none':''

On the table row th
<tr>
    <td class="KT_th"><label for="parent..........

<tr id="parent_row_<?php echo $cnt1; ?>">
    <td class="KT_th"><label for="parent..........

Check that out. Moved the id to the p tag, now it will hide the entire p tag.

Also try using divs rather than p's. p's have a lot of default styling which you have to reset.
    <script type="text/javascript">

    function toggleMenu(checked) {

      if (checked) {

         document.getElementById('menu').style.display='none';

      } else {

         document.getElementById('menu').style.display='';

      }

    }

    </script>

<form id="form1" name="form1" method="post" action="">

  <p>

    <label>

      <input type="checkbox" name="parent" onchange="toggleMenu(this.checked)" id="parent" />

      Is Parent</label>

  </p>

  <p id="menu">

    <label>Select Parent:

      <select>

        <option value="4">Marvel Comics</option>

        <option value="3">DC Comics</option>

        <option value="2">Lost</option>

        <option value="1">Heros</option>

      </select>

    </label>

  </p>

  <p>

    <label>Account Number:

      <input type="text" name="name" id="name" />

    </label>

  </p>

  <p>

    <label>

      <input type="submit" name="submit" id="submit" value="Submit" />

    </label>

  </p>
