Hi,

I have a repeater.

On the rptResults_ItemDataBound

I find a button and a html table row.
Dim trInvoices As HtmlTableRow = Nothing
        Dim btnShow As Button = Nothing

btnShow = CType(e.Item.FindControl("btnShow"), Button)
            trInvoices = CType(e.Item.FindControl("trInvoices"), HtmlTableRow)

I then have:
btnShow.Attributes.Add("onclick", "javascript:showdiv(" & trInvoices.ClientID & ")")

Firstly when I am clicking the button at the mo it is just posting back to itself.

Secondly should that code then work to hide the html table row which is coded as :
<tr id="trInvoices" runat="server" visible="false">

Thanks in advance

You have forgotten the apostrophes around the string that contains the id, and you would have to return false from the onclick event to keep the button from posting the form:

  btnShow.Attributes.Add("onclick", "javascript:showdiv('" & trInvoices.ClientID & "');return false;")

Your main problem will be that you have set your row to visible='false', this means that the control will not be rendered at all.
Change it to :
<tr id="trInvoices" runat="server" style="display:none">

We'd need to see how you have showdiv written first.

Otherwise keep in mind that, on the server-side, the Button is an ASP.Net control, not an HTML button.  So javascript calls that you enter in the onclick event will be evaluated and run on the server-side.  Alternatively, you can use the onClientClick attribute to have it fire a javascript on the client side.  

That would look something like:

btnShow.Attributes.Add("onClientClick", "showdiv(" & trInvoices.ClientID & ")")

Open in new window


[Note that in the client-side onClick event, specifying "javascript:" is not necessary.]

In your showDiv function to make the row visible you would then use:

myRow.style.display = 'block';

@Webmonkey: That is not correct. OnClientClick is a control property, not an HTML attribute. If you add it as an attribute you should use "onclick".
