    Question Display hidden element twice or more


    I could display hidden element through the use of Java script.

    How can I display the same hidden element more than once.

    lets say that the email input filed is hidden and when user clicks display email field then it comes up. I wanted to come up again when user clicks the same bottom again.

    not a php question from what I can tell. You would need to use javascript for this.

    I think what you are saying is that you want a user to be able to click the button and it adds another field each time they click it? so click it once get 1 field, click it again get a second field etc etc?

    if so you would do something like

    document.getElementById('containerDivId').innerHTML += "<input type=\"text\" name\"blah\" id=\"blah\">";
    take that code with a grain of salt it's only an example and I'm no javascript expert. Also that would only add the input at the end of the div, so it would be after the </form> tag etc, so more would be needed to achieve what you want, but that's the gist of what you would need.

    Maybe a mod could move this thread to the JS forum where you will get more love?
