I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

could you perhaps explain:
- Where will the ID come from? Query string or form field?
- When do you want to run the jQuery logic?

The basic code would be
$(document).ready(function() {
	var id = 1; // get the id from ???
	var control;
	switch (id) {
		case 1:
			control = "show me html text box";
		case 2:
			control = "show me html drop down";
			control = "Unkown ID";
