Dropdown items not visible after jquery show and hide

Dropdown items not visible after jquery show and hide

I have a dropdownlist that is filled with items.

I show and hide the div surrounding the dropdownlist using the following code .

divPCSelection.Style.Add("display", bo.User ? "none" : "normal");

This hides and show fine.

When I do a post back and look at the pages view source, the div shows the style display:none. The dropdown also shows all the items in the dropdown.

If then do a jquery "show" of the div, the div shows but the dropdown is now empty.

The jquery code is:


function TogglePCSelection() {
         if ($("#<%=chkUser.ClientID%>").is(":checked")) {
         else {

It doesn't seem to actually be empty as I can do a normal postback and the data is now back in the dropdownlist.

What is happening here?



RE: Dropdown items not visible after jquery show and hide

"normal" is not a valid option for "display", use inline or block.

Start to debug. First, remove that code and have the ddl always show when the page loads so you can be sure the ddl has items.
Then, test your javascript/jquerycode by checking and unchecking the checkbox to make sure the show/hide works correctly.
