Visible = true not showing div

Hi

I have a div tag that hids some content.
<div id="iqadetailpanel" runat ="server" visible="false" >
    <section class="panel"  >
                <header class="panel-heading tab-bg-dark-navy-blue">
                    <ul class="nav nav-tabs">
                        <li class="active">

Open in new window

 etc........

I want to show this content on a gridview SelectedIndexChanged event

Protected Sub GridIVRecs_SelectedIndexChanged(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles GridIVRecs.SelectedIndexChanged

        iqadetailpanel.Visible = True

Open in new window


The problem is that this does not work and when  
<div id="iqadetailpanel" runat ="server" visible="false" >
    <section class="panel"  >
                <header class="panel-heading tab-bg-dark-navy-blue">
                    <ul class="nav nav-tabs">
                        <li class="active">

Open in new window

   is set and the div is hidden  it wont even let me select a record on the gridview.  Help!

Hi edjones1,

I have some questions:

1) Are you using updatepanel control on your page ?
2) If yes, are both the controls, i.e. "iqadetailpanel" div and "GridIVRecs" grid, in the same updatepanel ?

It would be very helpful to understand your problem, if you can share the whole page source and code behind.


Regards,
Ronak

Use css to hide / show the div

<div id="iqadetailpanel" style="display:none;">

Open in new window


In code behind
iqadetailpanel.Styles.Add ("display","inline");

Open in new window
