I am having issues rendering anything on my button click using the aura:if notation. As far as i can tell it should work? But when i click the button nothing happens.


<button class="slds-button slds-button--neutral newsbutton" style="float:right"  onclick="{!c.toggle}">Reply</button>

<aura:if istrue="{!v.showEditView}">
    <div class="slds-form-element__control">
        <ui:inputRichText aura:id="bodyMsg"/> 


doInit : function(component, event, helper) {
    component.set("v.isError", false)
    component.set("v.showEditView", false);
    component.set("v.errorMsg", "");
    var action = component.get("c.getCase");
        caseId : component.get("v.caseId")

action.setCallback(this, function(a) {
    if (a.getState() === "SUCCESS") {
        component.set("v.record", a.getReturnValue());


toggle : function(component, event, helper) {
    //cmp.set("v.recordId", event.target.id);
    component.set("v.showEditView", true);

    In addition to the case sensitive, I have had issues before where even if true the IF did not render. I had to literally access the value the IF was using prior to the IF component. i.e. <div class="slds-hide">{!v.showEditView}</div><aura:if isTrue="{!v.showEditView}"> without the div before the IF the IF did not render. adding the div solved it. – Eric Jan 16 '17 at 15:26

It's an case sensitive issue, it should have been isTrue="{!v.showEditView}". Look at the aura:if. Always remember everything in Lightning component is case sensitive.
