Basic Search and Advanced Search validation

Hi,

Hi,

Please find the attached files.

I have search screen. On first initial load, "Basic Search" page will be displayed. On click of Basic Search linkthen we display field4, field5,field6,field7 and Advanced Search will be displayed in place of Basic Search. Again on click of Advanced Search, field4, field5,field6,field7 should not be displayed (only first 4 fields should be displayed).

I want to do this in client side (javascript)
Pls find the below code but its not working. how to change name of button to Advanced Search in javascript?


  function BasicSearchClick(button, args)
{
    document.getElementById("field4").style.display = "";
    document.getElementById("field5").style.display = "";
    document.getElementById("field6").style.display = "";
    document.getElementById("field7").style.display = "";

}

<telerik:RadButton id="btnBasicSearch" runat="server" AutoPostBack="false" ButtonType="ToggleButton" ToggleType="None" Text="Basic Search" CausesValidation="false" Font-Underline="true" ForeColor="Blue" OnClientClicked = "BasicSearchClick" />

Any idea on how to do this?

Thanks,

Try like this

document.getElementById("<%=field4.ClientID%>").style.display = "";

instead of

document.getElementById("field4").style.display = "";

ASKER

actually with the above code controls or hiding and showing correctly but how to change the name of the button to Advanced Search in client side.
I tried as below but nothing is working.


document.getElementById("ctl00_PlaceHolderMain_btnBasicSearch").value = "Advanced Search";

document.getElementById("<%=btnBasicSearch.ClientID%>").Text = "Advanced Search"

what do u suggest? changing the same link button name to "Advanced Search" or placing another link button for Advanced Search?
Hi,

Instead of doing it for every control, you can group the controls which comes under Basic Search and advanced Search and you can enable/ disable them accordingly!

I just created a sample app for you -

<div id="basicSearch">
        <label>Name</label><asp:TextBox runat="server" ID="txtName" />
        <label>age</label><asp:TextBox runat="server" ID="txtAge" />
    </div>

    <div id="advSearch">
        <label>Branch</label><asp:TextBox runat="server" ID="txtBranch" />
        <label>Sal</label><asp:TextBox runat="server" ID="txtSal" />
    </div>

    <a href="javascript:void(0);" onclick="ShowBasicSearch();" >Basic Search</a>
    <a href="javascript:void(0);" onclick="ShowAdvSearch();" >Advanced Search</a>

    <script type="text/javascript">
        //Initally show Basic Search and hide Advanced Search
        ShowBasicSearch();

        function ShowBasicSearch() {
            document.getElementById("basicSearch").style.display = "block";
            document.getElementById("advSearch").style.display = "none";
        }

        function ShowAdvSearch() {
            document.getElementById("basicSearch").style.display = "none";
            document.getElementById("advSearch").style.display = "block";
        }

    </script>

Open in new window


Hope it helps u...

or

document.getElementById("#<%=btnBasicSearch.ClientID%>").innerHTML  = "Advanced Search";

it is showing below error message:

'document.getElementById(...)' is null or not an object

Hi roopeshreddy,

when I try your code on first initial load you write code as below...

<script type="text/javascript">
        //Initally show Basic Search and hide Advanced Search
        ShowBasicSearch();

but when i try your code, ShoBasicSearch(); function is not getting executed on initial load when i write like this... so as a result it is showing both links and all fields in two div tags on first page load.....

Hi,
I tested the code at my end and posted!

Did you put the JavaScript at the end of the Page?

Anyway, you have resolved the issue! That's fine!
Thanks roopeshreddy for your concern
