I am able to hide a textbox by doing:
var tb1 = document.getElementById(id);
tb1.style.display = "none";

However, I am not able to make it visible by doing this:
tb1.style.display = "";

Please let me know what I could be missing. Thanks!

if your textbox is set with : Visible="false"

<asp:Textbox runat="server" id="Texbox1" Visible="false" Text="blabla" />

the textbox DON'T EXIST in the page so you can ask javascript to show it

use :

<asp:Textbox runat="server" id="Texbox1" style="display:none"  Text="blabla" />

another possible problem :

<div style="display:none">
<asp:Textbox runat="server" id="Texbox1" Text="blabla" />
</div>

you CAN'T SHOW it here too because the div around it is hidden

<td style="display: none">

Phew!
