    How to hide a div using innerhtml

    Hi,

    I would like to do the following :

    Hide a div <div id="one"> if a string (textstring) or if another div (<div id="two">) is included in the html code of one page of my web site.

    The div to hide is as follows :

    <div id="one">
    ....
    <h4>textstring</h4>
    ....
    <div id="two">
    ....
    </div>
    ...
    </div>


    I am a beginner in both php and javascript.

    I guess that it should be possible to test with innerhtml whether textstring or div id="two" is absent or present.
    Then, if one of them is present, I also guess that a javascript code could hide the div id="one".

    But unfortunately, I am unable to write the expected code.

    So, I thank anyone in advance for any help in this matter.

    Patrick

    Try this:
    Code:
    <!DOCTYPE html>
    <html lang="en">
    <head>
        <meta charset="utf-8" />
        <script>
    	function hide(){
    	  if ((document.getElementById('test').innerHTML == 'textstring') || (document.getElementById('two'))) {
    	      document.getElementById('one').style.display='none';
    	  }
    	}
        </script>
    </head>
    <body onload="hide()">
    <div id="one">
    ....
    <h4 id="test">textstring</h4>
    ....
    <div id="two">
    ...
    </div>
    ...
    </div>
    </body
    </html>

    Here's a quick method using jQuery:

    Hi,

    Thank you Kevin2 and cbVision for your replies.

    1- Unfortunately, I made a mistake in my request.
    The correct request would have been :
    Hide a div <div id="one"> if a string (textstring) or if another div (<div id="two">) is NOT included in the html code of one page of my web site.

    2- I have not access to the <body> tag

    Thank you again in advance for any solution.

    Patrick

    Answer to 1:
    Code:
        <script>
    	function hide(){
    	  if ((document.getElementById('test').innerHTML != 'textstring') || (!document.getElementById('two'))) {
    	      document.getElementById('one').style.display='none';
    	  }
    	}
        </script>
    Answer to 2 is that you're probably screwed. If you don't have access to the body tag you probably can't add the necessary JavaScript into the <head> or call it appropriately, whether you use pure JavaScript or jQuery.

    Hi,

    Thank you for your prompt reply.

    1- I have access to the external .js file where I can add the function code :

    function hide(){
    if ((document.getElementById('test').innerHTML != 'textstring') || (!document.getElementById('two'))) {
    document.getElementById('one').style.display='none';
    }
    }

    2- I have also access to the .tpl (template) file where is located the here below code :
    <div id="one">
    ....
    <h4>textstring</h4>
    ....
    <div id="two">
    ....
    </div>
    ...
    </div>

    Is there any code that I could add to the .tpl file in order to activate the hide function ?

    Thank you very much again.

    Patrick

    you can add this code into your template file (the lower in its content the better)

    Code:
    <script>
    /* this is to save possible already existing onload functions*/
    var old_onload=window.onload;
    /* this is to set new onload up with executing possible previously set functions */
    window.onload=function(){
    hide();
    old_onload();
    }
    </script>
