Prototype toggle() Method


Advertisements


This method toggles the visibility of an element.

NOTE: Element.toggle 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.toggle();

Return Value

  • Returns an HTML element.

Example

<html>
<head>
<title>Prototype examples</title>

<script type="text/javascript" 
   src="/javascript/prototype.js">
</script>
<script>

function toggleMsg(){
   $('test').toggle();
}
</script>
</head>

<body>

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

  <div id="test" style="display:inline;">
  <p>This message will toggle when you click the button</p>
  </div>

  <br />
  <input type="button" value="Click" onclick="toggleMsg();"/>

</body>
</html>
