How would I make this Javascript code hide the text area when the page loads rather than show it, the click to hide it?  

HTML:
<input id="hideshow" type="button" onclick="this.value = this.value == '...Hide' ? '...Show' : '...Hide'" value="...Hide" />

Open in new window


JS:
if ($.trim($('#hideshow').text()) === '...Hide'){
    
    $(this).text('...Show');
}
else {
    $(this).text('...Hide');
};
$('#hideshow').click(function () {

    $('#message').toggle();
})

Open in new window

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
