I'm trying to dynamically show / hide a panel (and subsequently it's contents), based the value chosen in a drop down list. I think i can do this in jQuery though I'm not sure if  that is the most efficient / best way, or if there is a simpler / easier / faster / more resourceful way to accomplish this. Any help or links to help would be appreciated.

jQuery would be definitely more efficient way to do this.

$('#<%=panel1.ClientID %>').hide();

$('#<%=panel1.ClientID %>').show();

This will show/hide the panel along with the content within the panel.

$('#comboID').change(function() {
    //Here you got some options, depending on if the panel must show for an unique value
    //or for a set of values

    //If only one value shows the panel (and all the other values hide it), then it could be:
    if($(this).value == 'value_desired_for_showing') {
        $('#panelID').show();
    } else {
        $('#panelID').hide();
    }

    //If several values show the panel and another ones hide it, you can use
    switch($(this).value) {
        case 'value_showing_1':
        case 'value_showing_2':
        case 'value_showing_3':
            $('#panelID').show();
            break;
        default:
            $('#panelID').hide();
    }
});

Hope that helps.

i split the points, because my main question (the question in the title) was answered with the first response. Though the 2nd response completely answered my entire question (in the question details). Thanks to the both of you for your contributions
