i am using a form which has a button "Edit" which on clicking should display 2 dropdown list.
i have hidden the dropdown by using <div style="display:none">to the div which is surrounding the dropdown. i have given onclick of command button as onclick="show(div)" so that it will show the dropdown list when the user clicks the Command button.
my problem is when i click the command button , it is calling the javascript "show" and showing the dropdown for a second and again refreshing the page to show only the command button. i dont know why the page is getting refreshing again.
If i keep the commandbutton outside form , the hide/show are working fine.
please help.
