View Full Version : Change content after x seconds?

10-11-2009, 05:17 PM

I am trying to create a rapidshare clone, but I need to have the show download button after x seconds.

I already have a countdown added, but I do not know how to show the download button after x seconds.

What code should I use?

I suck at Javascript :o

It depends upon why the download button can't be seen in the first place. If it is visibility: hidden; via css style and has - say, an id of "dwnbut", you could do:

document.getElementById('dwnbut').style.visibility = 'visible';

But it really would depend upon your markup, perhaps other existing code, and as I say upon why that button cannot be seen at first.

If you want more help:

Please post a link to the page on your site that contains the problematic code so we can check it out.

Hi Peter,

As John mentioned the real code will be based on your markup. But here is a demo one:

var x = 1000; //Specify the number of millie seconds after you want to show the element.
var d = document.getElementById('dwnbut');
d.style.visibility = 'visible';
}, x);

This code assumes that you have a HTML element with an ID 'dwnbut' in your page. If the page does not contain the element then it will not do anything.
