hideelement javascript

edited August 2005 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
i'd like to use the exisiting "hideelement(blah,blah)" javascript vanilla already has included to hide/show the "whisper your comments to" box.... but i can't find where in the code this block of html is rendered! can anyone help?

    which block of html are you talking about?

    The HideElement function is pretty simple:
    function HideElement(ElementID, ClearElement) {
    	var Element = document.getElementById(ElementID);
    	if (Element) { = "none";
    		if (ClearElement == 1) ClearContents(Element);
    It finds any element in the page by it's ID and makes hit display: none. It also optionally clears the innerHtml out of the element.

    So, to make it work you'd just need to set up a link and then name the id of the element you want hidden. So, for example, if you wanted to hide the menu tabs, you'd do this:

    <a href="javascript:HideElement('MenuForum',0)">Hide the menu!</a>
