Hi all,

There's a behavior in html composer that I hate. I try to explain as best I can. Well, I've wrote some code into window_onload event, that code shows/hides some controls and reports placed into the html page, depending on a set logic.

Well, the problem is that html composer sets the object properties (controls and iframes) as it is written on the javascript code. So, if in my code I write
 
// Yes, using jQuery.
$('#objectid').css('visibility','hidden'); 

I can't see those objects into the "Design" tab and, what is worse, html composer modifies the html code and sets the object propiertes as "hidden".

There's a way to avoid this? (of course, I wouldn't comment the code to hide/show objects)

Thank's

Looks like HTML Composer executes Javascript. HTML Composer uses the Internet Explorer engine. Maybe try disabling Javascript in Internet Explorer. Read this post by Francis it has a workaround. [CLOSED] DS HTML Composer - Why on earth is the JS running when I open in Composer?
It was easy for me to find. Do a little more searching next time.

Thank's a lot Mighty. I've done the search, as you have suggested, but sometimes it's not easy when you are not a fluent english speaker.

I do my best.

Thank's.

Composer runs JavaScript at design time because RIA requires it. That is when that behavior had to be introduced.

Why should this be a requirement if the page is NOT using RIA?

The design canvas is initialized on invocation so it must be ready for any content.
