Hi All,
please see the following code snipet
/ hides the return date field
 function showhidefield()
  {
    if (document.frm.isOneWay.checked)
    {
      document.getElementById("hideablearea").style.visibility = "hidden";
	  document.getElementById("returnLabel").style.visibility = "hidden";
    }
    else
    {
      document.getElementById("hideablearea").style.visibility = "visible";
	  document.getElementById("returnLabel").style.visibility = "visible";
    }
  }

Open in new window


The code hides a form field wrapped in a div (#hideablearea) when a checkbox is checked.
I would also like to delete the contents of the form field in my div as well as hide it.
Can my code be updated to perform both actions?

The id of the form field is #RDate if that helps.
Cheers,
N

Hi,
this should do the trick:
/ hides the return date field
 function showhidefield()
  {
    if (document.frm.isOneWay.checked)
    {
      document.getElementById("hideablearea").style.visibility = "hidden";
	  document.getElementById("returnLabel").style.visibility = "hidden";
document.getElementById("RDate").value = '';
    }
    else
    {
      document.getElementById("hideablearea").style.visibility = "visible";
	  document.getElementById("returnLabel").style.visibility = "visible";
    }
  }
