Show Dynamic Text When Changing Fieldvalues

This Content Component encountered an error
This Javascript function and additional HTML has been redeveloped as utility to
present helptext to the user when he/she is changing a fields value (for
instance a dropdown/check/radio).

For it to work in both Netscape and MSIE, I had to add some dumb non-breaking
spaces.

In the form add the following:

[<div ID="outer1" class="outerstyle"><div id="inner1" class="innerstyle">
             &n
bsp;            &nbs
p;             
             &n
bsp;            &nbs
p;             
             &n
bsp;            &nbs
p;             
             &n
bsp;            &nbs
p;           &n
bsp;            &nbs
p;             
   </div></div>]

Call it from a field using:

onclick or
onchange="updateNestedLayer('outer1', 'inner1',
document.<yourform>.<yourfield>)"

function updateNestedLayer(outer,inner, object) {
var helptext = "";

helptext = "Some help text";
// This help text ca be evaluated by getting the value of object and then
assign the text to
helptext

if (document.layers) {
document.layers[outer].document.layers[inner].document.open();
document.layers[outer].document.layers[inner].document.write(helptext)
document.layers[outer].document.layers[inner].document.close();
}
else if (document.all)
document.all[inner].innerHTML=helptext;
}
}
