dynamic combo box not showing on the screen

Discussion in 'Javascript' started by Idelso Quintero, Oct 4, 2004.

  1. Hi all:
    Probably this is a basic question but i am relatively new to
    javascript, so i would appreciate any help.
    I have to dynamicly create a combo box and locate it inside a table.
    Not only the content has to be dynamicly generated but the combo box
    itself as well, since it should only be seen if certain input
    conditions apply. I wrote the code to using the DOM, write the combo
    and its content when the input is correct and also remove it from the
    document tree when needed. The thing is that using alert statements i
    can see the it has been added to the tree, but i do not see it added
    on the screen. Is there any refresh function that i must invoke to be
    able to see it disappear/appear on the screen?
    I should also mention that the fix should work for Internet Explorer.
    Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    May want to consider developing in Firefox. Firefox has a DOM

    You may want to use my debug function to simulate a text console.

    No. The screen is automatically updated.
    You should be able to do this with any modern browser.
    You have not made any obvious mistakes. We need to see your code for
    further comments.
