View Full Version : Help w/ onClick event

02-19-2010, 04:26 AM
I am trying to show the contents of a div using a onclick event for a check box. The div is set to display:none so its hidden and the check box has not been checked. When the check box has been checked the contents of the div should be shown and when it has been unchecked the div should be hidden again below is the code i am working with.


function showMe (id, box) {
var i = (box.checked) ? "block" : "none";
document.getElementById(id).style.display = i;

OnClick works only with text/html not application/xhtml+xml. For application/xhtml+xml use onclick.
