Show/ Hide button for Drop down works only once

Tags: #button #scripts #show/hide



I am using RH10. I have about 10 drop down text on a page.


I created single Show/ Hide All button for my drop down texts as per the procedure mentioned here.


I am getting it almost right when I follow the project and instructions. Except that, my Show/ Hide button becomes inactive after one use of both functions, i.e., I can only click it once to Show all and again to Hide all. After that, either I have to refresh the browser or go to some other topic and come back to get it working. What could be the cause?


I am using FireFox 17.0.7 and IE8.

    You must have something not in accordance with the instructions.


    First try a new topic with one dropdown and see if that works.


    Then check the download from my site works.

    I am only seeing one image in your project. Although the user sees it as a one button method, there are two buttons, one for Show and one for Hide.


    Show is the default and should appear in Images when you create the link. Hide is the one that needs to be in baggage.


    Have you downloaded the demo rather than just the PDF?
