Hi Experts

Could you point how to make a control initially not visible to be presented since it has a value?

 <div class="col-xs-4 mb20 custo" style="display: none;">
	<label for="custo" class="field-label text-muted mb10">Custo</label>
	<div class="input-group">
		<span class="input-group-addon">
			<i class="fa fa-money c-gray"></i>
		</span>
		<span class="validar">
			<input type="text" name="custo" class="custo form-control gui-input br-light light" placeholder="">
		</span>
	</div>
</div>
</div>

Open in new window


Then in jQuery - the value isn't presented.
if ($('.custo').val()) $('.custo').show();   

Open in new window


Any workaround?

Thanks in advance.

if ($('.custo').val() == '') $('.custo').show();

Open in new window

BUT
Be careful because your selector is a class. If you have two controls with class .custo then the above will check the first one - and if it is blank will show all of them
Consider these two examples
HTML 1
  <input type="text" class="test" style="display: none" value="3" />
  <input type="text" class="test" style="display: none" />

Open in new window

HTML 2
  <input type="text" class="test2" style="display: none" />
  <input type="text" class="test2" style="display: none" value="3" />

Open in new window

jQuery
$(function() {
  if ($('.test').val() == '') $('.test').show();
  if ($('.test2').val() == '') $('.test2').show();
});

Open in new window

In the first both will be hidden.
In the second both will be visible.

Hi

I use the textbox as a class in 02 modals - since the values will be the same, no matter.

Accordingly to:
img001

 if ($('#edit. custo').val() != '0')
         {
            $('#edit .custo').show();
         }
    else 
    {
        $('#edit .custo').hide(); 
    }

Open in new window

Hi Julian

After a better read on you example.
Just one thing that confused me a little.

The value must be presented if it has a value and doesn't if it hasn't a value.

So the comprehension must to be inverted.

Then == becomes != and the example output switches around but the principle is the same.

Here is the same sample with the logic inverted - does this make more sense?
