There are times when you will want to hide an item on a web page and activate the item only when the user clicks on an element. You can use a small bit of Javascript to display or hide the desired elements. In this example, I wrap up text, a table and a horizontal rule that I want to control inside of a <div> with an ID. The display of that <div> is controlled by the javascript function.

You can show or hide the item by clicking on the element within the <a href=“#” …>, which is just text in this case. However, you can use other elements as well.
