Hi,

I am using 2 buttons in a jsp page where, I am making one of this button to hide and depending upon the output another should be visible..
I am using AJAX to communicate to the servlet and div's style attribute "style.display='none' for hiding the button and 'block' to unhide it...
the problem is, the button is visible for only a sec...It jus flashes for a sec and again going invisible...what may be the problem???

posting my code here,

Two things:

Please be sure to take the time to compose descriptive subjects for your posts; read this for more information. A title such as just "AJAX" is not helpful. What would happen if all posts had such a title? Please go back and change your post to add a more meaningful subject by clicking the button on your post.

Also, Please be sure to use code tags when posting code to the forums. Unformatted code is extremely hard to read and many people that might be able to help you will just move along to posts that are easier to read. Please read this for more information. You can go back and change your post to add code tags by clicking the button on your post.

You are submitting the form, you need to cancel the button click or use a normal button.
