[SOLVED] How to dynamically change text on HTML page?
Hi,

I want to toggle a text label value on my form. I thought it would be a simple case of setting its value, but that does not appear to work?

Example:

function button1_onclick(ctrl) {
document.getElementById('text1').value = "Changed";
}


Using Dev Studio 7611.

Thanks

Mark

That depends on what type of object on the form you are trying to change.

Hi Waz,

Its a text label created from the Composer:

<SPAN id=text1 style="Z-INDEX: 1; LEFT: 120px; WIDTH: 300px; POSITION: absolute; TOP: 20px; HEIGHT: 50px" tabIndex=1 persistentuniqueid="compUid_2">Original</SPAN>  


Cheers

quote:
document.getElementById('text1').value = "Changed";



Not .value use .innerHTML


document.getElementById('text1').innerHTML = "Changed";

Also be careful with innerHTML, it may not work on all browsers.

Hi JG, Waz,

Our uses just use IE and .innerhtml does the trick!

Thanks for your help,

Mark
