How can I hide and show the validation message below?
There are going to be several elements in the form.

<label for="txtBillingFirstName">First Name:<span class="required">*<strong style="display:inline" class="validate">First Name is required</strong></span></label><input type="text" id="txtBillingFirstName" maxlength="15" />

place all the elements in div tag
change the display property to block /none to show /hide div tag.
<div id="divcontent">...................</div>

document.getelementbyid("divcontent").display ="block"

you may use :
        $("label[for='" + $(this).attr("id") + "']").show();

Open in new window

and :
        $("label[for='" + $(this).attr("id") + "']").hide();

Open in new window

and :
        $("label[for='" + $(this).attr("id") + "']").find("span").hide();

leakim971,

Thank you! I'm going to do it slightly different,
Is this syntax correct?

 $("label[for=txtBillingFirstName").find("span").show();

it will work only for this one... so you will need to create a code for each input.
