ASP .net Label and javacript href link visible

Hi Expert,

I have two Label in aspx page, and I want them visible by contidtion

<asp:Label ID ="lb1" runat = "server" Text = "Complete a <a href='javascript:openForm(1);'>Information change form</a> if any details about your information changed." />

<asp:label ID = "lb2" runat = "server" Text="If this information incorrect, please update:"></asp:label><asp:LinkButton ID="lnkInfo" runat="server"
                    href="javascript:customConfirm(‘Are you sure you want to exit this screen?','../UpdateInfo/Update.aspx', null, true)"
                    Text="Update Account Information"></asp:LinkButton>

In code behind page

If ABC is true then
lb1.visible = true
lb2.visible=false
else
lb1.visible = false
lb2.visible=true
end if

lb1 work correctly and lb2 always visible.

How I can make lb2 work?

Thanks in advance.

Hi,
You are using link button, and there is no href property for the link button.
Anyway, you can use div (run at server) as a container for your label and link button see code block bellow:
<div id="myDiv" runat ="server" visible ="false">
<asp:label ID = "lb2" runat = "server" Text="If this information incorrect, please update:"></asp:label><asp:LinkButton ID="lnkInfo" runat="server"
                    href="javascript:customConfirm(‘Are you sure you want to exit this screen?','../UpdateInfo/Update.aspx', null, true)"
                    Text="Update Account Information"></asp:LinkButton>
</div>

Open in new window


And in you code:
If ABC is true then
lb1.visible = true 
myDiv.visible = false
else
lb1.visible = false
myDiv.visible = true
end if

Open in new window


Good Luck

Hi dshi15,

The code you submitted must work unless your condition if ABC = true is always return false. You need to check this condition output first, you can place break point in your first line if ABC=true and then press F10 to see what is next step.

Or you can make both label visibly to false as default and run your code, if it is showing label 1 in all cases then for sure the issue in your condition.
<asp:Label ID ="lb1" runat = "server" Text = "Complete a <a href='javascript:openForm(1);'>Information change form</a> if any details about your information changed."  visible="false" />

<asp:label ID = "lb2" runat = "server" Text="If this information incorrect, please update:" visible="false"></asp:label><asp:LinkButton ID="lnkInfo" runat="server"
                    href="javascript:customConfirm(‘Are you sure you want to exit this screen?','../UpdateInfo/Update.aspx', null, true)"
                    Text="Update Account Information"></asp:LinkButton>

Open in new window



Good Luck

Hi Expert,

I tested contition it works fine. lb1 can change visible true or false based on condition, but lb2 always visible and I checked an online article and it said href link need be inside Label. This is exactly lb1 did, now i need change label2 same way, remove linkbutton and add href link inside Label2 tag, I just don't know how to do it. Because there are several single quote invovled.

Thank you.

Hi,
Just hide your linlbutton (lnkInfo ) as well

If ABC is true then
lb1.visible = true 
lb2.visible=false
lnkInfo.visible = false
else
lb1.visible = false
lb2.visible=true
lnkInfo.visible = true
end if

Yes, it is exactly I did, but Label2 and lnkInfo always visible. So I need remove a link button and add  href inside Label2 I guess.
