    Good morning,

    on form 2 input elements and 1 image are placed. The 1st (Index[0]) one is
    "hidden", the 2nd [Index[1]) is an empty textbox.
    When clicking the picture I would like to toogle a boolean value. (displayed
    in the textbox).
    The following function reacts correctly on the first click. Any further
    click as no effect (is returns "TRUE" in the textbox).
    Where is the mistake ? How can I solve the problem ?
    Thank you very much in advance.
    Best regards

    <script language="JavaScript">
    <!--

    function toggle()
    {
    if(document.forms[0].elements[0].value="yes")
    {
    document.forms[0].elements[1].value="TRUE";
    document.forms[0].elements[0].value="no";
    }
    else
    {
    document.forms[0].elements[1].value="FALSE";
    document.forms[0].elements[0].value="yes";
    }
    }

    // -->
    </script>

    <body>

    <form action="">
    <p>
    <input type="hidden" name="YesNo" value="yes">
    <input type="text" name="Textbox" size="20">
    <a href="#" onClick=toggle()>
    <img src="Button.gif" border="0" width="36" height="36">
    </p>
    </form>

    </body>

    (...)
    I suppose you mean
    if(document.forms[0].elements[0].value=="yes")
    with double "="
    Also note that "TRUE" between quotes is not a boolean, but a string.

    Hi Ivo,

    Thank you very much for the hint. This was actually my mistake.
    Coming from Visual Basic the double "==" was unknown.
    Thanks again !
    Regards
    Jürgen

  4. Considering that the value property of form controls is of type string, do
    you really think it matters much?
