Trying to get displayTag show/hide row to work.

I found this code that looked promising for what I am trying to do -- that is, show and hide rows using displaytag.



The link doesn't activate, thus the JQuery plugin is not invoked. Now sure what I should code for the link in order to make this work. I pared down the code so that is as simple as I could get it. My subscriptions session variable has the row data. Any suggestions? I can manually change the style to display:visible and am able to see subscriptionList.id .

Why are the link and script tags in the wrong place?

ok, I moved the scripts into the head section. But I am not sure why you are saying the link is in the wrong location. When I run the following:



THe output shows the link image in column1, which is what I am wanting to happen. Again, I borrowed this code and am trying to make it work. Where do you suggest placing the link? Wish I could link an image here so you could see what I am talking about.

The link elements should be in the head element.

Ah..
These
<link rel="stylesheet" href="css/displaytag.css" type="text/css"></link>
<link rel="stylesheet" href="css/screen.css" type="text/css"></link>
<link rel="stylesheet" href="css/site.css" type="text/css"></link>

I thought you meant the link element, as in the <a> etc...

Right, those. Since they are HTML elements they should be inside the HTML document (and specifically, inside its HEAD element).

Ok.
So I got this sample from a guy who had also posted the source -- three years ago. Dead link now. But it doesn't give an active link now. Hmm. Do I have to change the link so that it invokes the script?

I'm, not sure what the problem is as I've never used the tags, but invalid HTML is the first thing that should be fixed. If the HTML is invalid, there's no telling what can happen.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
