Hi Minsdstick!

I have a pull down menu, what i would like is that when there is a change with the pull down that a <div> displays that was previously hidden. But I keep getting an error of:

uncaught typerror:object #<HTML Document> has no method 'getElementByID'

Here is the code:

 <!DOCTYPE html
PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0   
Transitional//EN"
"http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
   <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
   <head>
    <title>landing3</title>
   <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
<script type="text/javascript">
function showdiv() {
document.getElementByID("DIV1").style.display = "inline-block";
}
</script>
</head>
<body bgcolor="#FFFFFF" leftmargin="0" topmargin="0" marginwidth="0" marginheight="0">
      <select id="awf_field-28500717" name="custom Country" tabindex="503" onChange="showdiv()">
        <option class="multiChoice" value="United States">United States</option>
        <option class="multiChoice" value="Canada">Canada</option>
        <option class="multiChoice" value="United Kingdom">United Kingdom</option>
        <option class="multiChoice" value="Australia">Australia</option>
        <option selected>Select</option>
      </select>
    <div id="DIV1" name="DIV1" style="display:none;">
    Test
    </div>
</body>
</html>
Thanks in advance

    Hi!

    You have getElementByID while the actual method is getElementById 

    <script type="text/javascript">
      function showdiv() {
        document.getElementById("DIV1").style.display = "inline-block";
       }
    </script>
