reset html generated from subroutine

reset html generated from subroutine

reset html generated from subroutine

I have been struggling to find an answer to this issue.

I have an HTA application that has some buttons that create output to the page as html. I have it working, but every time a press a button the it is appended to the existing data. I am using appendchild, but I was really looking to create a new node or remove the old node at the top. My example below is my latest attempt that fails with "Could not complete the operation due to error 800a01b6." I hope someone can help!

<div id="nav">
<INPUT TYPE="button" NAME="Customer" VALUE="Add Customer" id='AddCustomer' onclick=AddCustomer() width="175" style="width: 175px">
Sub AddCustomer
For Each oDiv in data
set oDiv = document.createElement("div")
addcust = addcust & "<tr>"
addcust = addcust & "<TD colspan=2 VALIGN=TOP BGCOLOR='#800000'>"
addcust = addcust & "<FONT STYLE='ARIAL NARROW' COLOR='#ffffff' SIZE=2>Customer Data</font>"
addcust = addcust & "</td>"
addcust = addcust & "</td>"
addcust = addcust & "</tr>"
addcust = addcust & "</table>"

oDiv.innerHTML = addcust
data.appendChild oDiv
End Sub

RE: reset html generated from subroutine

Try having your button call a function. In that function reset the content in the DIV to nothing, then have it add in whatever content you need.

I hope that helps.
