Hi,

I have the javascript function below. The line:
document.getElementById(button).innertext = '-';                
isn't working.

What am I doing wrong?

function showhiderow(id,button) {	

	if (document.getElementById) { 
	    
		if (document.getElementById(id).style.display == 'none')
		{
		    document.getElementById(id).style.display = 'block';
		    document.getElementById(button).innertext = '-';		    
		}
		else
		{				
		    document.getElementById(id).style.display = 'none';
		}
	}	
}

It depends where the button label is written.

<button type="button" id="myButton2">Button Label</button>  
    - .innerHTML or better    .childNodes[0].nodeValue

or

<input type="button" value="Button Text" id="myButton1"></input>
   - .value

Hi,

I believe that you should use document.getElementById(button).value instead ov document.getElementById(button).innertext .

Good luck!
