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();"/>
