Prototype show() Method


previous next AddThis Social Bookmark Button


Advertisements

This method displays and returns element.

This method cannot display elements hidden via CSS stylesheets. Note that this is not a Prototype limitation but a consequence of how the CSS display property works.

Syntax:

element.show();

Return Value:

  • Displays and returns HTML element

Example:

<html>
<head>
<title>Prototype examples</title>
<script type="text/javascript" 
   src="/javascript/prototype.js">
</script>
<script>

function hideElement(){

   $('grandfather').hide();
}
function showElement(){

   $('grandfather').show();
}

</script>
</head>

<body>

  <p>Click the button to see the result.</p>

   <div id="grandfather" >This is grand father
      <div id="father"> This is father.
         <div id="kid" >This is kid</div>
      </div>
   </div>

   <br />
   <input type="button" value="Hide" onclick="hideElement();"/>
   <input type="button" value="Show" onclick="showElement();"/>

</body>
</html>

To understand it in better way you can Try it yourself.
