View Full Version : How many tricks to ...

Can anyone post some tricks for making something like a toggle button?? Like a link which does two actions(onclick). If you click it once it expands a div and if you click again it contracts. I have been trying to do that for ages but what I found was one of the scripts in w3schools which is sth like:

var cc=0;
//do something
} else {
//do something

If anyone has any other tricks then please post them in this thread.:p

If the actions set a variable, all you have to do is check that one.

I think NTL (big British broadband provider, similar to AOL in America) have decided it's Experience Life as a Snail week -- my connection currently measures at 715 bytes per second. Anyway...

You can also toggle the whole event:
<button id="btn">A button</button>
<script type="text/javascript">
function toggleOn() {
// do something
this.onclick = toggleOff;

function toggleOff() {
// do something else
this.onclick = toggleOn;

document.getElementById("btn").onclick = toggleOn;
</script>All depends on what you want to do and what else you've got to measure by.
