View Full Version : show/hide

Hello, ok I need a script so that when the user mouses over b '<div id="a"></div>' is hidden and '<div id="b"></div>' is shown and when they mouse out 'b' is hidden and 'a' is shown and when the page loads 'a' is shown. Iv been looking everywhere for a script and cant find one. Any ideas?

<a onMouseOver="show('b')" onMouseOut="hide('b');show('a')">b</a>
<div id="a">content a</div>
<div id="b">content for b</div>

or something like that

Here's one way to do that.

<script type="text/javascript">
if(document.all && !document.getElementById) { //IE4 support
document.getElementById = function(id) { return document.all[id]; }
function show(id) {
if(!document.getElementById) return;
function hide(id) {
if(!document.getElementById) return;

Thanks Oakendin, one more question as you can see on my page http://digitaldreamdoor.sytes.net (rollover "a | b | c") even when the rows are hidden they still take up space. How can I fix this?

Use the display property instead of the visibility property.

The code in that thread is a bit dated.

Thanks Kravvitz, I wasn't able to get your code working. (im not very good with javascript)

Sorry. I forgot the style object. I edited the code I posted earlier. Try it again.
