Hi,

I have the following requirement:
I have a servlet that calls an ajax script and accordingly displays the result in a table. When I first load the page , I need to hide the table and once I click on a button 'Charge' I need to call the ajax function and display the result in the table by making it visible ? How do i achieve this ? Any help is appreciated.

Following is snipped of my existing code


My ajax script:

CSS. Make the table hidden until script makes it visible.

Why are you building up HTML in servlet? Gather the data in the servlet then forward to a JSP to format the table HTML.

Hi,
You can use jstl tag, jsp scriptlet or javascript to achieve it.

No, you can't. Not when using Ajax to fetch the new table.

Hi,
Yes Bear is right if you are using ajax that simply you can use some javascript to change the css to hide /show.
