hi,

i have this function definition:
 
function xtoggleDisplay(aid, atagname, aclassname, adisplayvalue) {
  var obj = document.getElementById(aid);
  var elements = obj.getElementsByTagName(atagname);
  for (var i = 0; i < elements.length; i++) {
	if ((aclassname == '') || (elements[i].className == aclassname)) elements[i].style.display = adisplayvalue;
  }
}
function xtoggleOn(aid, atagname, aclassname) {
  xtoggleDisplay(aid, atagname, aclassname, '');
}
function xtoggleOff(aid, atagname, aclassname) {
  xtoggleDisplay(aid, atagname, aclassname, 'none');
}

Open in new window


i have this onclick event:
 
onclick="xtoggleOff('tbl_data_1', 'tbody', ''); xtoggleOff('tbl_data_1', 'tr', '');"

Open in new window


i'd like to able to set the onclick like this:
 
xtoggleOff('tbl_data_1', 'tbody;tr', '');

Open in new window


it's like creating a array from a delimited string
how can i do that ?

Also please mention what is the problem that you are facing.
Thanks

it's in the small print ...

now i call a procedure xtoggleOff twice for 2 different tagName's (tbody and tr)

i'd like to be able to call xtoggleOff only once, but pass it both tagName's in 1 string
using a delimited string

the code xtoggleDisplay would have to change for this to work:

function xtoggleDisplay(aid, atagname, aclassname, adisplayvalue) {
  var obj = document.getElementById(aid);
  var elements = obj.getElementsByTagName(atagname);

this is the problem i can't solve:
var classnames = stringtoarray(aclassname);

change to something like below
function xtoggleDisplay(aid, atagname, aclassname, adisplayvalue) {
  var obj = document.getElementById(aid);
>>  var classnames = stringtoarray(aclassname);
  var elements = obj.getElementsByTagName(atagname);

function xtoggleDisplay(aid, atagname, aclassname, adisplayvalue) {
  var obj = document.getElementById(aid);
>>  var classnames = stringtoarray(aclassname);
  var elements = obj.getElementsByTagName(atagname);
  for (var i = 0; i < elements.length; i++) {
    x = 0;
    if (aclassname == '') x=1;
>>    for (var j=0; j < classnames.length; j++) {
>>      if (elements[i].className == classnames[j]) x=1;
>>    }
    if (x == 1) elements[i].style.display = adisplayvalue;
  }

you can easily pass the comma separated string and then convert it into an array using
split method String

Let me know if this helps

sometimes i wonder why i look for things myself
and not ask a question straight away in the appropriate TA

I spent more than an hour trying to find a JScript reference on MSDN library.
I could have had it in 10 minutes as this Q proves again.

Thanx for the fast response.
