How do I make this onchange thing work?

My user is given an input field like this:

<input type="text" size="35" name="allocatedmonies" id="allocated_1" onchange="visibility()">

To the immediate right of that field, I want to place a small icon that the user can click on and save the record. I'm thinking that would look something like this:

<div id="save_1" visibility="false"><img src="icon.jpg"></div>

I'm shooting in the dark here, guys, so I'm just giving you scaffolding.

What would be the JavaScript function that would make "save_1's" visibility to be "true" so it would be seen the moment my user alters the data in the "allocatedmonies" field?

What do you think?

if you're using pure javascript, then you would do:

<input type="text" size="35" name="allocatedmonies" id="allocated_1" onchange="document.getElementById(;save_1;).style = 'block';">

of course, you could put the same line in a function called visibility() and just call the function if you want

Similar answer to Big Monty using a seperate function:

<script>
function visibility() {
	document.getElementById('save_1').style.visibility = 'visible';
}
</script>
<input type="text" size="35" name="allocatedmonies" id="allocated_1" onchange="visibility()">
<div id="save_1" style="visibility:hidden"><img src="icon.jpg"></div>
