Hiding Fields and Labels on the fly via JScript

This is actually in reponse to a comment/question that was posted by Schnugie but I figured that this would benefit everyone so it became a post instead of a comment response.

So, how do you hide fields and then redisplay them based on the input of another field? Here's a code sample of how to do it:

var oField = crmForm.all.field;
var oLabel1 = crmForm.all.field_c;

switch(oField.SelectedText) {
case "0": = 'hidden'; = 'hidden';
case "1": = 'visible'; = 'visible';
default: = 'hidden'; = 'hidden';

If crmForm.all.field is a picklist then the .SelectedText will work. But basically, this code looks at a picklist field, evaluates the value and depending on what the value is determines whether or not a field is displayed or hidden. You will also notice that I have some _c after my field name as a second variable, that is for the label. If you just hide the field it will not hide the label with it. So you will need to show/hide both.

Use this script on the onLoad, onChange, or where ever you see fit.

Happy scripting!
