I am trying to hide one DIV if the selected value is not 50 . On salesforce view page I have added Visual Force Page through standard layout option. I want to display that page only if selected vale of Months is not 50 . Below is the code with which I am trying to achieve this. Please note Months is the custom field on Opportunity.

Visual Force Page

<apex:page standardController="Opportunity">
<script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.5.1/jquery.js" type="text/javascript"></script> 

<script type="text/javascript">  

 $j = jQuery.noConflict(true); 
       if(Opportunity.months__c != "(50) Fifty" && Opportunity.months__c !="" && Opportunity.months__c != null)

<div id="note" class="note">
    <div class="noteTitle">Note</div>
    <div id="noteBody" class="noteBody">
        Some Sample Text Here

  • Is there a reason you can't do this with standard rendered attributes of outputPanel or pageBlock ?

  • @Ricky I could not get the requirement, you are hiding the div (note) in the if block and again un-hiding it in the else block.

  • @SarojBera it is because I only want to hide is if the value is not 50 if it is 50 I want that to be displayed.

  • @AslamK I tried doing through rendered first but was not working for me. So I have used java script. Is this Achievable through rendered?

You can simply achieve this through standard tags. I don't see any reason to go for JavaScript for this.

<apex:page standardController="Opportunity">

<apex:outputPanel rendered="{!Opportunity.months__c == '(50) Fifty'}">
    <apex:outputLabel>Some Sample Text Here</apex:outputLabel>

  • Oh I was actually using rendered on DIV I needed to use Output Panel . Thanks for you work, That did solve my problem.
