Write text/messages on Web page without using fields

Write text/messages on Web page without using a field, hide when formulas or compute text.

Place on the form where you want to start the text to display the following as pass-through HTML:

<div id="display">

Then you can write to this location easily with this code:

msg="Hello everybody"
document.getElementById("display").innerHTML ='<VALIGN=TOP><br><br><FONT SIZE=2 FACE="Arial">'+msg+'</FONT>'

Of Course you could display text retrieved from notes fields with this code to.

If you want to hide (remove) it again just use

document.getElementById("display").innerHTML =''

Have fun, Ronald
