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

If you run run a WordPress, you understand the potential headaches you may face when updating your plugins and themes. Do you choose to update on the fly and risk taking down your site; or do you set up a staging, keep it in sync with your live site and use that to test updates?

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