Hi everyone,

I have some text on the page arranged liked this:

Title
Block 1 of text


Title
Block 2 of text

Would someone be able to help me so that if you click on the title it shows the block of text underneath and if you click on the title again it hides the text?

Thanks,

D

try this

<html>
<head>
<title>my javascript show script</title>

<script type="text/javascript">
      function showStuff(id) {
      if (document.getElementById(id).style.display == 'block')
            document.getElementById(id).style.display = 'none';
            else
            document.getElementById(id).style.display = 'block'
      }
</script>

</head>
<body>

<p><a href="#" onclick="showStuff('answer1'); return false;">What price are your apples?</a><br>
<span id="answer1" style="display: none;">Our apples are 30 pence each. If you buy 10 or more we can sell them at a discounted bulk rate of 25 pence each.</span></p>

</body>
</html>

Thank you pratima, it works except when I put php in the output it does not hide on the page load:

<p><a href="#" onclick="showStuff('answer1'); return false;">Today:</a><br>
<span id="answer1" style="display: none;"><?php foreach ($res as $k => $v) {
    echo str_replace('__', $v, $html[$k]) . PHP_EOL;
} ?>
</span></p>

Open in new window


Do I need to put something around the php for it to work?

Thanks,

D

Tell you tell me how to print the results of the loop into another variable and then print this variable here as I need the results of the loop in this block. Thanks for your help :)
