I have two text boxes. When 1st text box gets focus i need to diplay the correcponding help message at the left side of the page. I tried making text hidden andOnFous change the disability. But the problem with that the second message comes below the frst message . I want the message to come at the top. So Im trying to use IFRAME.
SO WHAT I NEED IS onFocus= call the corresponding message og the iframe.or
can it done with out iframe?
onFocus=divid('/help.html#login') something like this.
