visibility and display problems

  • # December 19, 2008 at 5:34 am

    Hello all

    My first post,, yeah .. =)

    This topic could be on css-help aswell,, but I think it’s more of an js-problem than a css-problem.

    So..
    When declaring a <div> and trying to, via javascript, determine wether the div is visible
    or not. Javascript can’t see the attributes, visibility and display, when declared in css.

    An example..
    First some random css-file.

    Code:
    div#testdiv {
    visibility: hidden;
    display: none;
    }

    And some html/javascript code

    Code:


    ..
    ..

    ..

    ..
    ..

    Javascript never thinks that the div-element is hidden and not display (display: none) unless
    I explicity declare that in the div-declaration.. like this.

    Code:

    Am I doing something wrong or is this a known limitation of javascript/css… or what’s happening.

    Happy holidays!!

    Regards Jocke

    PS. Thanks Chris for a really good show, looking forward to more css-tips and tricks! DS.
