the javascript:
function hideForm() {

    var pfirstname;
    var plastname;
    var pemail;
    var chekbx;
    var subbutton;

    pfirstname = document.getElementById("pFirstName");
    plastname = document.getElementById("pLastName");
    pemail = document.getElementById("pEmail");
    chekbx = document.getElementById("CheckBox1");
    subbutton = document.getElementById("ButtonSubmit"); = "none"; = "none"; = "none"; = "none"; = "none";


some of the page:

<P align="left">
            <asp:CheckBox ID="CheckBox1" runat="server" Font-Bold="True" 
                Text="I have read and I agree to the terms of the confidentiality agreement." />
        <P align="left">
            <asp:CustomValidator ID="CustomValidatorIsChecked" runat="server" 
                ErrorMessage="You must check this box to see the videos." ForeColor="#CC3300"></asp:CustomValidator>
        <P align="center">
            <asp:Button ID="ButtonSubmit" runat="server" Text="Submit" />
        <P>After you have viewed the videos, you can choose to:<BR clear="all"></P><UL><LI>Apply to become a beta tester and/or</LI><LI>Reserve a copy of VERA at a substantial discount.</LI>

the problem:
subbutton is always null...I cannot get a handle on it to hide it.  I thought at first it was because it is a server control, but the checkbox is also a server control and I have no trouble grabbing it in the code.

So what am I missing?
