    Red face Blocking links in a DIV unless checkbox is checked

    What I would like to do is to force users to accept a "TOS" (Terms of Service) before allowing them to download files.

    I have this working with forms & buttons here:
    http://jsfiddle.net/LFqcJ/

    Here it is again, working in a different fashion.
    http://jsfiddle.net/QdyXe/2/
    (This way is less desirable as the button simply fades and does not work - the user is not prompted [as above] to action and is left to guess why the link will not work.)

    What I would like to do is modify the first script so that it works on hyperlinks in a DIV.

    I have a number of files that users can select for free download, but want them to first accept my TOS - the disable method makes it hard for the user to understand what is happening (2nd method above); the 1st method makes it simple when the DIV lights up with instructions on click.


    HTML Code:
    <html>
    <head>
    <title>Force TOS Acceptance</title>
    <script type="text/javascript">
    <!--
    function CheckboxValidator(theForm) {
        if (
        theForm.toscheckbox.checked == false) 
        {
         var txt=document.getElementById("myDiv")
             txt.innerHTML="<b style=\"color:#f00; font-size:18px; background:#ff0\">&uarr; You MUST check the box that agrees to our Terms of Service! </b>";
         return false;
        } else {     
         document.open;
         document.write('OK. We are satisfied. Good boy.');
         document.close;
         return false;
        }
    }
    //--></script>
    </head>
    <body>
    <h1>Checkbox Must Be Checked for Form Submit</h1>
    <p>This script requires that a checkbox is checked before allowing a form to be submitted.
        <p>&nbsp;</p>
    <form action="../" onsubmit="return CheckboxValidator(this);">
        <p><input type="checkbox" name="toscheckbox" value="I agree to the Terms of Service."> <label>I agree to the <a href="http://companypolicies.org/terms-of-service" target="_blank">Terms of Service</a> and will do whatever you ask in the future forever and ever and so will my kids and...</label>
                <div id="myDiv"></div>
            <br /><input type="submit" value="Submit!"></p>
        </form>
        <div id="myDiv"></div></body>
    </html>
    Here is the DIV I would like to use:
    HTML Code:
    <div style="margin:10px 10px 20px 20px;">
    <table style="templatedownload">
    <tr>
    <td><a href="http://companypolicies.org/templates/downloader.php?f=Internet_Use_Policy.docx"  title="Download a sample Internet Use Policy in MS Word DOCX format"><img src="http://companypolicies.org/images/docx.png" border="0" /></a></td>
    <td><a href="http://companypolicies.org/templates/downloader.php?f=Internet_Use_Policy.docx"  title="Download a sample Internet Use Policy in MS Word DOCX format">Internet Use Policy Template MS Word DOCX File</a></td>
    </tr>
    <tr>

    Lightbulb Something to consider ...

    Is this more like what you are looking for?
    Code:
    <html>
    <head>
    <title>Force TOS Acceptance</title>
    <script type="text/javascript">
    // From: http://www.webdeveloper.com/forum/showthread.php?t=263382
    
    function CheckboxValidator(theForm) {
      var txt=document.getElementById("myDiv")
      if (theForm.toscheckbox.checked == false) {
        txt.innerHTML="<b style=\"color:#f00; font-size:18px; background:#ff0\">&uarr;"
                    +" You MUST check the box that agrees to our Terms of Service! </b>";
       return false;
      } else {     
        txt.innerHTML = 'OK. We are satisfied. Good boy.';
        document.getElementById('content').style.display = 'block';
        return false;
      }
    }
    function checkAgreement(status) {
      if (status.checked == true) {
      } else {
        document.getElementById('content').style.display = 'none';
        document.getElementById("myDiv").innerHTML = '';
      }

    I put it into a JSFiddle...

    Works as promised, but was hoping to get it to fade the visibility and disable links with an on change with the checkbox...

    http://jsfiddle.net/eeHeb/

    Fiddling with it a bit more now...
    Thanks for the help!

    Also, a user can uncheck the box and then download the file.

    Ignore my previous post... it works, but with an image now...

    Here I did it with an image for the button...

    This is almost exactly the effect I was after, but I wanted to have text with inactive links that when clicked work this way...

    http://jsfiddle.net/uyLA4/4/

    I cheated and created an image with the text & image block faded. I would prefer to do it with just text... having a second DIV block that alternates with inactive links that would function exactly like this.
