View Full Version : <Span> tag

01-06-2007, 05:09 PM
I have a three <span></span> sections and when each is clicked another section is loaded and another is hid using code similar to below:

document.all.menu0.style.display = 'none';
document.all.menu2.style.display = 'none';
document.all.menu3.style.display = 'block';

I have an onload function which hides two of the sections intially BUT all the sections are visible initially for a split second and then disappear as the onload event kicks in. this flash of all the segments is messy. Any ideas on how to prevent this??

document.all is IE only and you should be using document.getElementById()

document.getElementById("menu0").style.display = 'none';
document.getElementById("menu2").style.display = 'none';
document.getElementById("menu3").style.display = 'block';

Create style rules to initially set the spans display value to none

You can create individual rules for each span




or one for all and add class="hide" to each span
