  • How do I delete an object in DHTML ???

    I've created a Div using a JavaScript and DHTML ... and it worked just fine...

    But in order to use the JavaScript again I need to somehow delete the object "Div" that was generated before.

    Does anybody knows how to do that ???

    How do I delete, release or something to the object in order to re-create it with other atributes ???

    Any Ideas???

    Thanks a lot.

    W3C DOM way (works in IE5+/NS6+):

    var div = refToDiv //document.getElementById('divID') perhaps
    div.parentNode.removeChild(div);

    IE-way (IE4+):
    refToDiv.outerHTML = '';

        Hey jkd,

        what does this do?
        document.getElementById("elemName").style.display="none";

          it makes the element not displayed (hidden) not occupying a space in the screen.

            There are various way to display elements. Current property setting will set that element isn't displayed at all.

            Difference between setting element's visibility to hidden and setting element's display to none, is that element do not reserve the space it needs when display property has been set to none.

              The element still exists though, it just isn't rendered. Often that is enough, but sometimes you need to truely delete the node using the methods I described above.

                This code should work in Konqueror too
